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!

Andy Rooney is a really smart guy!
Femmes & Fellas, forward to five fine, fun, fabulous, fancy-free female friends over 40.

I got that as an e-mail from a husband and I both laughed over it.

We do mellow a lot over the years. I was never a screamer though...we always enjoy dining out...never screamed at our girls either, they were a joy to take out to a restaurant or anywhere else!

We never have done the Opera. Plays, Concerts, etc. Yes. But no opera. I think I'd drag him kicking and screaming...which I'd never do!

Trivial things...aren't that important. Take time, enjoy. Relax.
Time passes too quickly!

Cherish him! Cherish your girlfriends, too. But never forget him, if you have a good one!

If only half of what Andy said were true, I wouldn't be chasing after 22-years-old waitresses.

I didn't think he'd write that.

Oh, well!

Whoever wrote it....there's Some truth to it. But NOTHING is universal about women or men. Each individual is unique, thank God!

Thanks for sharing your insight!
