My Sister sent this to me....in honor of my pending Birthday

In light of the fact that in just days I will turn 40....and I seem to be having a hard time with it. She is a couple years older then I and I have been dreading this day for a long time. When my husband deployed last year and missed my 39th one, he said, "Babe, I will spend my 40th over here, but you will be in my arms on yours".....hm......Army had other plans, instead, I shall be spending it alone drinking a toast to the next 40, may they be as blessed as the last ones have been.........so in light of those out there who share my age and above, I like Andy Rooney and this makes me like him even more!

In case you missed it on 60 Minutes, this is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 40:

60 Minutes Correspondent Andy Rooney (CBS)

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 is a really smart guy!


  1. Ummm... some of us pigs have known what Rooney is going on about for years. And years. And years. But that might be because we're old. Ya think? ;-)

    One thing for absolute certain: You won't see this guy making an idiot out of himself with a 20-year old waitress. But a 42-year old waitress? NOT outside the realm of possibility. Not at ALL.

    Happy Birthday, ASW. You ARE getting better!

  2. Happy Birthday! whenever the impending day maybe. no doubt youll welcome 40 as gracefully as you seem to handle everything else.

  3. Happy Birthday, and hitting 40 is only hard right now because you have been through so much pain lately. Once you are recovered more and they get that pain under control, you will see that you are more fabulous than you realized!

    I am excited to hear that you have an upcoming redeployment! What a wonderful thing to look forward to!

  4. Happy soon to be birthday!!!
