What Does Honor Mean for Geezers?

Over at The Art of Manliness, Brett has been writing a fascinating series of articles on the subject of manly honor. You can read it here.

It's striking to recognize the degree to which the Geezers of these pages practice a life of manly honor (here at Old Geezers Out to Lunch, we are nothing if not confidently aware of our virtue) , but there is still much in Brett's articles for men of all ages and predispositions to reflect on.

So here are some open-ended question for the Geezers Emeritus, as well as anyone on our mailing list and everyone who stumbles into Old Geezers Out to Lunch. Please do add your responses and observations in the comment feature at the bottom of the page.  This post will stay active so long as the conversation chain evolves.

In this time and this place, what does it mean to live with honor? If you are a geezer, how do you define it for yourself?  If you know a geezer, how do you observe honor manifesting?  Does honor mean the same today as it did 'back in the day'? Or is is it less relevant in today's world? Is there anything unique about the oft-discussed "male honor"?
