Anything for you--your wish is my right-click command--here goes nothing!


Okay, if I could do it--Rightclick on the hattipper, click on copy. Put curson on your post where you want him, right click again, click on paste.

Why, yes, I am smarter than my husband (not really, he's smarter and smart enough not to ruin my illusions/delusions).

When I called her a couple days later, she was not amused. She thought I was a drunk and a carouser.........

It's worth getting a copy of Chris Crowley's "Younger Next Year For Women" just to read his chapter on "Old Fred"...

They (women) will always be a bit of a mystery. Their brains are physically wired differently, thus "how they work" will never be fully understood by the male brain.

But they sure are cute....

Marry a young woman, who is better educated than you are.

Thanks for the tip, Ha. But I don't think it will work for me.

Not only won't you get divorced if you marry a younger woman, you'll live longer too!


"Another theory is that a younger woman will care for a man better and therefore he will live longer," said institute spokesman Sven Drefahl.

And then there are the extreme cases, like this one...

Last Civil War Widows — Infoplease.com

Quote:
The last-known Union widow, Gertrude Janeway, died in Jan. 2003 in Tennessee. John Janeway joined the Union army in 1864 and was briefly a POW at Andersonville. The couple married in 1927, after waiting three years until Gertrude turned 18. John was 81.

Ok...so what have we learned? Mommas and daddies need to teach their sons to be on the lookout for Cougars to take care of them, then when they are old, to look for the younger women. Hummm, the guys have it made! Take these options and you never have to do a thing....'course what else is new?

Now if you will excuse me, I have to go and remove more carpeting as my DH is on yet another bike trip and the flooring installers will be here Monday. Ahem........

Oh...one more tip. Don't ever put carpet in a bathroom....when you take it up, you'll know what I mean......

Go to YouTube, search on Madonna's song Human Nature.
Skip forward to 1:02 and listen very carefully...
WARNING: This is one of Madonna's wilder videos. Relax, there's no nudity.
I originally put the link here, but it got pretty wild so let your fingers do the walking at Youtube.
