    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 oversensitive, and there's nothing worse than an oversensitive
    woman. My name is Bob. Let me relate how I handled the situation with my
    wife, Debbie.

    When I took "early retirement" last year, it became necessary
    for Debbie 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
    course about the same time she gets home from work. Although she knows now
    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 good home cooked
    grub when I hit that 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
    Debbie. 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.
    Afterall, we are put on this earth to help each other.


    Bob died suddenly on May 27th. The police report says that he was
    found with a Calloway extra long 50-inch Big Bertha Driver II golf club
    rammed up his @#%$, with only 2 inches of grip showing. His wife, Debbie,
    was arrested and charged with murder; however, the all-woman jury found her
    not Guilty, accepting her defense that he accidentally sat down on it.
