      Consideration  must be shown at all times to old birds
       
      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 when they  were younger.  When you notice  this, try not to shout at them. Some are  over-sensitive, and there's nothing  worse than an over-sensitive woman.

      My name is Reggie. Let me relate how I  handled the situation with my wife,
        Julie. When I took early retirement last  year, it became necessary for Julie  to get a full-time job for the extra  income that we needed.

      Shortly after she started working, I noticed she  was beginning to show her
        age. I now usually get home from the pub  about the same time she gets home  from work. Although she knows how hungry  I am, she nearly always says she  has to rest for half-an-hour or so  before she starts dinner. I don't shout  at her, instead I tell her to take her  time and just wake me when she gets dinner on the table. I generally have  lunch at the pub, so eating out again  is out of the question – I'm ready for  some home-cooked food when I get home.

      She used to do the dishes as  soon as we finished eating, but now it's usual
        for them to sit on the table for several  hours after dinner. I do what I can  by diplomatically reminding her several  times each evening that they won't  clean themselves. I know she really  appreciates this, as it does seem to  motivate her to get them done before she  goes to bed.

      Another symptom of ageing is complaining. For example, she  will say that it
        is difficult for her to do the shopping  during her lunch hour. But we take  them for better or worse, so I just  smile  and  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 won't hurt her. I like to think  tact is one of my strong points.

      When doing simple jobs, she seems to  think she needs more rest periods. She
        has to take a rest when she has only  half finished mowing the lawn and  several extra breaks when she's  vacuuming through the house. Vacuuming does annoy  me when I'm trying to watch 'Match of  the Day', but I try not to  make a scene. I'm a fair man. I tell her  to make herself a nice cup of tea  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.
       
       I know that I  probably look like a saint in the way I support Julie. I'm not  saying that showing 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 get as they get older.  However, even if you just use a  little more tact and less criticism of  your ageing wife because of this  article, I will consider that writing it  was well  worthwhile. After all,  we  are put on this earth to help each  other, eh?


      EDITOR'S NOTE:

      Reggie died  suddenly last week. He was found with a  24-inch Stanley screwdriver
        rammed up his arse with only 2 inches  showing.

      His wife Julie was arrested,  but the all-woman jury accepted her defence
        that he accidentally sat on  it.
