    One for the ladies

    It is important for men to remember that as women
    grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the
    same quality of housekeeping as when they were
    younger. When you notice this, try not to yell at them.
    Some are over sensitive, and there's nothing worse
    than an over sensitive woman.

    My name is Ron. Let me relate how I handled the
    situation with my wife, Carol Anne. When I retired a
    few years ago, it became necessary for Carol Anne to
    get a full time job, along with her part time job, both
    for extra income and for the health benefits that we
    needed. Shortly after she started working, I noticed
    she was beginning to show her age. I usually get home
    from the golf club about the same time she gets home
    from work.


    Although she knows how hungry I am, she almost
    always says she has to rest for half an hour or so
    before she starts dinner. I don't yell at her. Instead,
    I tell her to take her time and just wake me when she
    gets dinner on the table. I generally have lunch in the
    Men's Grill at the Club, so eating out is not reasonable.
    I'm ready for some home-cooked grub when I hit that
    front door.


    She used to do the dishes as soon as we finished
    eating. But now it's not unusual for them to sit on the
    table for several hours after dinner. I do what I can
    by diplomatically reminding her several times each
    evening that they won't clean themselves. I know she
    really appreciates this, as it does seem to motivate her
    to get them done before she goes to bed.

    Another symptom of aging is complaining, I think. For
    example, she will say that it is difficult for her to find
    time to pay the monthly bills during her lunch hour.
    But, boys, we take 'em for better or worse, so I just
    smile and offer encouragement. I tell her to stretch it
    out over two or even three days. That way, she won't
    have to rush so much. I also remind her that missing
    lunch completely now and then wouldn't hurt her any
    (if you know what I mean). I like to think tact is one
    of my strong points.


    When doing simple jobs, she seems to think she needs
    more rest periods. She had to take a break when she
    was only half finished mowing the yard. I try not to
    make a scene. I'm a fair man. I tell her to fix herself
    a nice big cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and
    just sit for a while. And, as long as she is making one
    for herself, she may as well make one for me too.


    I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I
    support Carol Anne. I'm not saying that showing this
    much consideration is easy. Many men will find it
    difficult. Some will find it impossible! Nobody knows
    better than I do how frustrating women get as they
    get older. However, guys, even if you just use a little
    more tact and less criticism of your aging wife because
    of this article, I will consider that writing it was well
    worthwhile. After all, we are put on this earth to help
    each other.


    EDITOR'S NOTE:
    Ron died suddenly on 31 January of a perforated rectum. The Police report says he was found with a Calloway extra long 50 inch Big Bertha Driver II golf club jammed up his rear end, with barely 5 inches of grip showing, and a sledge hammer laying nearby. His wife Carol Anne was arrested and charged with murder. The all woman jury took only 10 minutes to find her not guilty, accepting her defence that Ron, somehow without looking, accidentally sat down on his golf club.
