Notes from Thoughtful Ron.

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 over sensitive woman.
My name is Ron... Let me relate how I handled the situation with my
wife, Julie.
When I took "early retirement" last year, it became necessary for Julie to get a full-time job, both for extra income and for health insurance that we needed.
Shortly after she started working, I noticed she was beginning to show her age.
I usually get home from golf course 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 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 reminded 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 backyard.
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 Julie. I'm not saying that 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, fellas, even if you use just a little more tact and a little 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.
Signed
Ron.

EDITORS NOTE: Ron died suddenly Thursday 26 of May 2005. He was found
With a Calloway extra-long 50-inch Big Bertha Driver 2 (a golf Club) rammed up
his arse, with only 2 inches of the grip showing. His wife Julie was arrested, but the all-women jury accepted her defence that he accidentally sat down on it very suddenly.
