      dare not piss off Mom because she does the cooking and she also knows how to use the credit cards.  LOL!

      He would joke about that all of the time but what was funny was that Mom was about 5 ft tall and 100 lbs or so...and Dad was not a small man ..but he never wanted to get her all irritated as Mom could sure hold a grudge. LOL!

        everyone's gone by now but it occurs to me that the young women have a better idea. Let him do the cooking!

        Women had large families when I was young (no birth control pills, you know. And yes, I'm pretty old.) Now they have 2.5 children and share the housework and the cooking.

        As far as I have observed, the guys like the arrangement too.

        Good for them. More divorces, well, yeah. Families couldn't afford to divorce back in the day. Too expensive. Very little daycare available. A solitary woman couldn't even get a loan for a house in many cases. I hate divorce but it's better than the alternative, screaming parents and nervous children.

        I would like to live to see my great, great nieces and nephews grow up. They are already a bunch of stunners.

        Don't listen to the naysayers, peeps. There really is a new world coming.

        Some of is already here. We will not be dragged kicking and screaming back into the dark ages. Will not. Not now. Not ever again.

        I kind of like this comment. Too bad nobody will see it. S'okay, though. Got it off my chest.
