    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 they did when they were younger. When men notice this, they should try not to yell at their spouses. My name is Bob... Let me relate how I handled the situation with my wife, Nancy. When I was laid off from my consulting job and took "early retirement" in April, it became necessary for Nancyto get a full-time job, both for extra income and for the health benefits that we needed. It was shortly after she started working that I noticed that she was beginning to show her age. I usually get home from fishing or hunting about the same time she gets home from work. Although she knows how hungry I am, she almost always says that she has to rest for half an hour or so before she starts dinner. I try not to yell. Instead, I tell her to take her time and just wake me when she finally does get dinner on the table. She used to do the dishes as soon as we finished eating. Now, it's not unusual for them to sit on the table for several hours after dinner. I do what I can by reminding her several times each evening that they aren't cleaning themselves. I know she appreciates this, as it does seem to motivate her to get them done before she goes to bed. Now that she is older, she seems to get tired much more quickly. Our washer and dryer are in the basement. Sometimes she says she just can't make another trip down those steps. I don't make a big issue of this; as she finishes up the laundry the next evening, I'm willing to overlook it. Not only that, but unless I need something ironed to wear to the Monday lodge meeting, or to Wednesday's or Saturday's poker club, or to Tuesday's or Thursday's bowling, or something like that, I will tell her to wait until the next evening to do the ironing. This gives her a little more time to do some of those odds and ends things, like shampooing the dog, vacuuming or dusting. Also, if I had a really good day of fishing, this allows her to gut and scale the fish at a more leisurely pace. Nancy is starting to complain a little, occasionally. For example, she will say that it is difficult for her to find time to pay the monthly bills during her lunch hour. In spite of her complaining, I continue to try to 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). 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 garden. I try not to embarrass her when she needs these little extra rest breaks. 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, then take her break by the hammock so she can talk with me until I fall asleep. I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I support Nancy on a daily basis. I'm not saying that my ability to show 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 can become as they get older. However, guys, even if you just yell at your wife a little less often because of this article, I will consider that writing it was well worthwhile. Signed, Bob.

    EDITOR'S NOTE: Bob's funeral was on Saturday, January 24. Nancy was acquitted of involuntary manslaughter on Monday, January 26 ...?..

      If you find this post offensive, please insert "Chan" before and "tho" after, then it should be OK.

          Leicester's main sponsors, Walkers, have decided to cash in on the

          publicity of the footy team's recent trip to Spain and are releasing

          a new range of crisps, which they hope will prove popular.

          These are; assault and vinegar

          ready assaulted

          pokey bacon

          sleaze and onion

          gang-roasted chicken

          & porn noddytail



            We always hear "the rules" from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side. These are our rules:-

            Please note these are all numbered "1" ON PURPOSE!

            1. Breasts are for looking at and that is why we do it. Don't try to change that.

            1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about
            you leaving it down.

            1 . Saturday = sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides.Let it be.

            1. Shopping is NOT a sport. And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

            1. Crying is blackmail.

            1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!

            1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

            1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

            1. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.

            1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact,all comments become null and void after 7 days.

            1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

            1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.

            1. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done.Not both. If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

            1. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

            1. Christopher Columbus did not need directions and neither do we.

            1. ALL men see in only 16 colours, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a colour. Lilac is a flower. We have no idea what mauve is.

            1 . If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.

            1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," we will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

            1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an answer you don't want to hear.

            1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine. Really.

            1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as Sex, Sport, or Cars.

            1. You have enough clothes.

            1. You have too many shoes.

            1. I am in shape. Round is a shape.

            1. Thank you for reading this; Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the settee tonight, but did you know men really don't mind that, it's like camping.


              A man goes to the doctors who tells him he has some bad news.
              "I'm very sorry Mr. Smith but your blood tests have come back and it seems
              you have a very rare disease called 'yellow 42'. I'm afraid you only have 24
              hours to live".
              The man leaves the surgery in a state of shock and goes straight home to
              tell his wife, who is also devastated." How do you want to spend your last
              day on earth?" she asks.
              "Well, I want you to have good memories of things we've done together, and
              you're always trying to get me to go to bingo so I think I'd like to spend
              my last night there with you."
              That evening, they go to their local hall. As the balls start dropping the
              man can't believe it. First he wins the 4 corners, then the first line, then
              the full house prize!! At the end of the night he goes to the manager's
              office to collect his winnings.
              "I can't believe your luck" says the manager.
              "It's no good to me" says the man, sadly. "I've got yellow 42"
              "**** me!" says the manager, "you've won the bloody raffle as well!"


                Man turned up to vote in Russian election
                and at the polling station is handed a sealed envelope to put in the box.
                He starts to open it and is jumped on by the attendants "What are you
                doing? Don't you know this is a secret ballot"
