Andy Rooney On Women Over 40

As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:
*A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, “What are you thinking?” She doesn’t care what you think.
*If a woman over 40 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 more interesting.
*Women over 40 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.
*Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.
*Older women are forthright and honest. They’ll tell you right off if you are a jerk if you are acting like one. You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her!
Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress.
Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?”, here’s an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!

E.A.T. for the Kitchen (DIY Project)

I have a spot on my wall between the dining area and my kitchen that I just didn't know what to put there.

I didn't want a picture and I didn't want any type of shelf. I already feel like my counters are crowded. But it is so plain and boring.

 Then I saw this...

Perfect!!! I could just go to my local craft store and pick up some supplies for my DIY project.

I bought the letters at Michael's. The letters were $3.50 each but I had enough coupons for 40% off each one. The paint was on sale for 50 cents and the brush was on sale for 13 cents and the varnish was $6.50 but I used a coupon for 50% off. Total price for this project $17.60 (before tax). What I paid for with coupons $8.08 (before tax).

I just love how it turned out.
