Andy says...

Many of you might have read this or heard it on 60 minutes but my SIL just sent it to me and I think it bears repeating - especially since I just had a birthday! Now I am not saying I agree with the last statement completely... but all this is well put. So here is Andy Rooney's view of women.

As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why -

A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think. If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game,she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting. Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it.



Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her!



Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?', here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!

There is nothing better than 50.

Hugs,

Great post and very funny too. As David said, 50+ is so far the best! Experience and enthusiasm trump almost everything.

What an interesting read and I am loving being 40 I must admit. I feel stronger and more confident than I ever have before.

Hugs

PK, a mature woman is like a fine wine, to be handled gently and savoured and appreciated.
Love and warm hugs,
Paul.

Hi PK:
Great post! Thanks to you for posting, and thanks to all the men out there who appreciate us! Beautiful pics also.
Thanks

At the ripe old age of 43, I am viewing the world and myself through entirely new eyes (and glasses, LOL)... and I wouldn't change a thing about the "me" that I'm finding deep within all that silly exterior. And apparently, deep, deep down, Dante feels the same way, which makes me even happier.

But I can't help adding that I would indeed love to be handled gently, savoured and appreciated wantonly, by Dante, of course!

Hugs and love,
Tiggs

PK, great post, but I must absolutely disagree with your lack of agreement with Andy's last statement, "women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!" It may not be something that many of us will admit to, but size does matter. It's more worth buying the whole pig if he's got a nice big sausage, even better if he knows what to do with it. ;)

Sorry, no offense to anyone with a small sausage. I'm just in a silly naughty mood. Must be time for a good hard spanking.

Excellent post PK, made me smile.

Being 50+ have to agree with David and Spanky, its a great age. Older, wiser and more confident.

I love comment by Paul, a true gentlmen.

Thanks.

very fun...and I am appreciating my experiences now so I can learn and become more confident and strong so I can enjoy when I become 50+ even more... :-)

Great post.
Actually turning 40 was very emotionally hard for me (wish I'd found all the great 40+ bloggers back then), but I like to think I've embraced my 40s and am better than I ever could have imagined in my 20s and 30s. I try to think of myself as 40 years young :D

David,
I agree with you 100%!

Spanky,
Experience and enthusiasm is a really good way to put it. You are right on the money.

Mina,
If you like 40 you will love 50, and I am not kidding!

Paul,
You always know how to say exactly what a woman wants to hear.

Andrades,
I think more and more smart men are agreeing with what Andy has to say!

Tig,
You are right the older we get the more we see things clearly.

K,
LOL! You are in a naughty mood! I hope you get everything you want and need!

Ronnie,
You are so right about Paul, always a fine gentleman. I never thought being 50 could be so great.

Terps,
You have a long way to go to 50 but it will be great for you too.

Robin,
You are right about the importance of support. When I first started blogging I assumed everyone but me were in their 20's. I was so happy to find out so many were in their 40's and 50's.

PK - your comment to Robin, I too thought everybody would be young and held back with blogging, was very happily surprised that there are so many of us oldies out there.
