Just received an email from a friend of mine and I would like to share this email to everybody out there. This is PRICELESS! Just in case you missed it on 60 Minutes, this is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over age of 40.

60 Minutes Correspondents 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 up date 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!

Life isn't waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

This is really cute! Andy Rooney has always cracked me up - he can have such a dry sense of humor sometimes. Thanks for sharing!

It's OK to be WEIRD!

This is hilarious. I haven't watched 60-minutes in probably 10 years. It was a weekly staple of our entertainment routine when I lived at home. Truly, I wish all women over 40 were like this. Unfortunately, I know a few that could stand a lesson on poise and dignity. Also, I know quite a few women in their 20's and 30's that won't scream at their husband in public, will let him watch the game while they do something much more interesting and give praise freely.

I totally agree with "older women are forthright and honest" - very true!
