Something to Share

I am coming back to blogging. Just took a little time off to craft and enjoy the summer. I have had this little tidbit from Andy Rooney saved from a few years ago. I LOVE it! It is so true. I thought you all may enjoy it too. More crafty posts to come! I have been super busy :)

"As I grow in age I value women who are over 30 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:
A woman over 30 will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask "What are you thinking" She doesn't care what you think.

If a women over 30 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 something more interesting.

A woman over 30 knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is, what she is, what she wants and from whom. Few women past the age of 30 give a damn what you might think about her or what she is doing.

Women over 30 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.

A woman over 30 has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best friend because she doesn't trust the guy with other women. Women over 30 couldn't care less if your attracted to her friends because she knows her friends won't betray her.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 30. They always know.

A woman over 30 looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of younger women.
Once you get past a wrinkle or two a woman over 30 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 30 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately its not reciprocal.
For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman of 30+, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year-old waitress.

For all those men that say, " Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free". Here is an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage, why? Because women realize it is not worth buying an entire PIG, just to get a little sausage.

Thanks Heidi! I had to change the post because I worded it wrong. I am 35 now and will celebrate 36 in September. See why I don't blog regularly. LOL!
