Women Over 50

In case you missed it on 60 Minutes, this is what Andy Rooney thinks
about women over 50.

“As I grow in age, I value women over 50 most of all. Here are just a
few reasons why:

A woman over 50 will never wake you in the middle of the night & ask,
'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think.

If a woman over 50 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit
around whining about it. She goes and does something she wants to do, &
it's usually more interesting.

Women over 50 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 50.

Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 50 is far sexier than
her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest.. They'll tell you right off if
you are a jerk or if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to
wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over 50 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately,
it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman
over 50, 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!”

    CJ, how wonderful is this? I do have a problem with it though, maybe you can help.
    Where exactly are we to find men who think the way Andy does? Oh, maybe it helps that he is about 90 years old now? hahaha

    I’ll miss his wise words of wisdom. He was a newsman who looked at the world without wearing rose-colored glasses, ignored political correctness, and spoke his mind; rare these days.

      This blob was on the Random Blog Posts and I just had to reply to it, Mac. I enjoyed watching his program.
