Happy Woman’s Month for the over 40’s Woman in South Africa

I thought I would re-blog this, appropriate when South Africa’s month of August is dedicated to  Woman’s month, starting with Woman’s Day on 9 August 2013.

Historically, Woman’s day in South Africa is a tribute to the thousands of women who marched to the Union Buildings on 9 August 1956 in protest against the extension of Pass Laws to women, but now also extended as an appreciation of what our female gender is doing in our homes, government, sports and institutions. 



Although this was a hoax that Andy Rooney presented his wit on the CBS News Show, 60 Minutes, concerning what he thinks about women over 40. The true version was an embellished version of piece created by Frank Kaiser, a columnist who’s Suddenly Senior articles are published on his website. The original article on http://suddenly.senior.com/in-praise-of-older-women/, where Andy Rooney received more praise than he did.

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!

Andy Rooney…at least  Frank Kaiser, is a really smart guy!

Forward to five fine, fun, fabulous, fancy-free female friends over 40 or who have female friends over 40 and send to the guys too!
