Sorry to be mean and bitter here but you've stumbled on the one subject that really yanks my chain. As far as I can tell most women are only interested in a man's bank account. I'm single because I've never seen it fail that on the first or second date she always gets around to asking about how much money I've got in the bank or how my credit rating is. I feel like they should just ask me to fill out a credit application. There's nothing wrong with me. I've never been in any trouble with the law. I've had a job almost every day since I got out of high school. I make good money and I've got a 120 acre farm. I just refuse to marry a woman who is more interested in my bank account than she is about me. Another thing about young women is, there is no such thing as a BBW! If you're 25 years old and weigh 200 pounds, you've got a problem. You're not a big, beautiful woman, you're fat. Lay off the peanut butter sandwiches and ice cream and you'll find a man. Everybody puts on a little weight as they get older, but don't use that as an excuse for being a lard butt. Sorry for the rant, hope I didn't hurt anybody's feelings. Jim.

I am right on with you Jim and I am a woman...MAtt was flat broke and couldn't work when I met him...Didn't phase me in the least...If a relationship is based on a bank account it ain't worth diddly...
Yeap and you are right about the BBW...I was one of them BBW for 15 years..until I saw my Mamma unergo bypass surgery and thought what the heck have I done to myself...Got off the sweets and got busy living life...dropped 130 pounds...went from a size tight size 24 to a size 6...Wish I had been shocked into realazation along time ago...KAtG

That's alright, as long as she has the house work done and the meal cooking. Then if there's time for all this tomfoolery, it's ok with me.
Kissin don't last, cookin do!
I just know I'm gonna regret this, 'specially if Donna reads it. LOL

Jesus better change your ways if you want us to get that guest bedroom ready for your stay here!
Then again..we'll need an extra hand, or two, to finish our own house...

Ron/PA    Posted 10-14-2004 at 08:38:53       [Reply]  [No Email]
See what I mean? You would be the one to tell Donna!!! LOL
How are you doing? Gettin it all patched up and ready for the winter sun storms??
Take care.

Patria    Posted 10-14-2004 at 09:00:46       [Reply]  [No Email]
yeah well, I'm always ready for our winters. I've been criticize for being an alarmist, but with this crazy weather we have been having? It pays to have your contingency plan updated.
Soooooo..the cooler's in the laundry. The beach chairs in the basement. The towels and bathing suits in my closet. Soda, barley pops, and fresh baked bread waiting at our mom and pop little shop.
So you see..ready for the worse.LOL

id like a wimmin that, as I picked beans or whatever, and she was in another row, I could stop and just look at her for a bit. I want a woman who I can admire because she is driving a tractor plowing, and yet I can poke fun at her crooked rows, as she does mine. I want a woman who is moving up the pickup filled with fertilizer and filling the buckets for me so that I can fill the fertilizer boxes when I get up to her. I want a woman I can set and just feel her nearness as we silk sweet corn, or can vegetables. Admire her while she tells me what she needs done while canning. I want a woman who I can talk to about anything on the farm, and know she knows as much about it as me, perhaps more. I need to ask advice about a thing brefore I make a decision myself. Ive never gotton a interesting response, or a knowledegable one from the 3 city girls I married. i want a woman to spend quiet Sundays with walking around the place, or along the road, or setting in the grove of trees and laying in the hammock. I want a woman whos as much in love with the past as I am, and with old time farming. I want a woman I can still get feelings I haint had for years, and just shiver with the excitement of her look. Guess I want alot. Guess thats why I haint got hennybody. O well Better to be alone and contented than with the wrong person and miserable.

Question: Why do women have such a hard time finding men who are good-looking, well-dressed, charming, attentive, and sensitive?

Answer: Most of those men already have boyfriends!

James(Ga)    Posted 10-13-2004 at 19:36:30       [Reply]  [No Email]

Aprile, After all those replys what can i say but,I love my Virginia(Jenny) dearly.We was married 44 years this past Aug.We do hold hands when rideing and she has her own remote and i have mine. She tends to me like i,m a baby.She say i am her baby but since i,m cripple we have septric bed rooms but the doors face each other in case i need her if i have to get up. Sometimes i try not to wake her and fall. Believe me that gets her attention.I ask her if she would marry me on our 50th wedding andv.and she says yes so i think we sort of was made for each other even though i got the better of the deal.James

That is very sweet, James.
I think most women who love a man have a very loving, nurturing spirit.
Just thinking, if the tables were turned and she was in the condition you are in,
do you think you would be as good to her as she is to you?
I know that is a tough question.
I have often seen women taking care of their husbands like Jenny does you.

I often wonder if the husband would hang in there through for the long haul in those conditions.
Please dont take offense by me asking, it is not meant to be mean or unkind.
I just have wondered it before.
I know you are a kind hearted good man,
but I just wonder how many males/men/husbands would do that.

Ill tell ya what Lenore. My mom died last year at 95 with oldtimers. She was a VERY hard person to love, as was her mother. She ran off (with some of my help` by the ignorance all young people have in the matter of working at marriage) 3 of my wives. Why she didnt want me to be married Ill never know. We had to bre down home every sunday, but when we were there she was constantly making snide remarks to/about my wife, about how my former wife was better. Always trying to find out our business, ect. SAhe was my mom, and raised me as best she could. But when my last marriage ended I said im never have another woman in my life till mom was gone, and now she is. I thought dad just put up with her. But was I ever wrong. He loved her, even when she couldnt tell me what my name was without correcting herself. I never seen him cry, but I did when she died. and he has since. he s gone to the cemetary where she and my older 1/2 brother are MANY times, took flowers ect, and hes 86. She rapped in there bed, on the livingroom rug, eating breakfast, but he lived with it. They married in 1940, making 63 yrs thereabouts. Dont know if I could do the same

~Lenore    Posted 10-13-2004 at 21:01:50       [Reply]  [No Email]
Farmall, your dad undoubtably loved her!
I have never understood why a mom would interfer in her son or daughter's marriage.
I heard a minister say we do not raise children we raise adults. How we rise them as children will determine what type adult they will be. I always expected my children to grow up and marry and move into their own place and hopefully be happy and stay there!!LOL

My son had a failed marriage and moved back in here briefly. My ex daughter inlaw always told everyone she had the best mother in law ever. My current daugher in law feels the same way. I got that reputation by staying out of their business and criticizing them. I love her because she loves my son and he loves her. I always tell him he better be good to her cause I love her and he can't move back here with me!!LOL

My mom had Alzheimers too. I took care of her at home till she passed away. The last 2 1/2 years she did not know who I was. I understand some who suffer from it become very hard to deal with. My mom was as sweet and gentle and easy to care for as she was before the illness. I was blessed in that respect. When she saw me coming she would say, "Here comes the boss". I had to laugh at times to keep from crying. I do believe that is the most unkind illness ever.

Hi Lenore,That is a good and fair question. I dont know about other men but i would tend to her best i could and if i had good legs and arm i would tend to her as she does me. I have ask her to put me in a nurceing home and she wont have any part of it.Jenny says as long as she has breath in her body i,m staying home but i feel like i,m, such a burden to her and here lately with the weather changing i hurt so bad i,m really ill but she keeps me anyway. and my hat is off to you for taking care of your neightbor and i believe you have a double blessing coming. James

~Lenore    Posted 10-13-2004 at 20:37:14       [Reply]  [No Email]
James, thanks for the answer and not thinking I was asking a mean question. I think it is a question most women wonder about at times.
You are not a burden to Jenny, she loves you. Like I sais a woman who loves her husband, child, or parent do not consder it a burden. Love is the operative word.

It is a very difficult thing to care for someone so totally. I am findinng that out myself. It is physically tiring but it is more emotionally wearing. The hardest thing is seeing someone you love or care for so dependent and not being able to "make it better".
I know your Jenny would never let you be in a nursing home, don't push her to do that. God bless you both, you are blessed, James.

Matt..(hubby) was in a wheelchair for along time and had to have several back operations...totally dependent on me...I never thought about not taking care of him...Later years I ask him what if some happned to me...He replied " Well I would do what I could but you know I would have to get someone to help me..." Kinda made me wonder if I would wind up in a nursing home..Hopefully not and he would realize how importantjust having thier prescence with you...KAtG

~Lenore    Posted 10-13-2004 at 20:43:24       [Reply]  [No Email]
KatG, I guess that is what I was thinking.
I know a woman will take car of a loved one most of the time, I think God made us that way.
I just wondered if most men could or would be able to.

James you and Jenny are truly blessed to have each other...What a wonder feeling it must be...I got a good man also...Makes me mad as an old wet hen sometimes but I know that he is always there for me and he knows I am there for him too...KAtG

"Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

She will do him good and no evil all the days of her life.

She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

She is like the merchants' ship; she bringeth her food from afar.

She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a
portion to her maidens.

She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are
clothed with scarlet.

She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to coem.

She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord,
she shall be praised.

Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates."

Proverbs 31:10-31

That's all this man wants in a women
