    I'll buy the first copy.

    In just three more days, Mrs. Flash and I will celebrate our FIFTY-THIRD Wedding anniversary, and there are some things about this relationship - and women in general, because I have two daughters - I'm still trying to figure out.

    She's not really humorless, she doesn't dislike jokes. But when I first met her at church one Sunday, I asked her if she'd like to go out with me on Friday night. Her answer: "Don't make me laugh!"

    And then, later, when I DID, in all seriousness, ask her to marry me, she laughed for three minutes, non-stop.

    If anybody ever does get a foolproof system for figuring out women, write a book and if I'm still alive, I'll buy the first copy.
    You must be careful what you pretend to be, because in the end, you are what you pretend to be.
    ....................Kurt Vonnegut, in "Mother Night"

    All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune

    Congratulations on the 53rd!

    With 53 years in the books, it sounds like you at least figured out you had a good thing going. Happy anniversary!

    If you can live with a woman for 53 years without her kicking you to the curb or burying you in the back yard, you've gotten the important stuff figured out.

    Happy Anniversary!

    Happy Anniversary!

    In regards to the book on women, if one existed, would be the thickest book on the planet, and still answer nothing.
    ​All you need for happiness is a good gun, a good horse, and a good wife.

    Happy Anniversary to you and yours ! Main thing you practice after that many years is don’t sit around arguing with each other especially for others to see . Leaves bad memories for the children . Second is just be thankful you have a partner still alive after that many years . And last .......... , don’t try figuring out women , let them start trying to figure out you !!

    Women have women figured out and they hate each other. Just count your blessings and be happy.

    Jack Nicholson in As Good As It gets pretty much sums up how to write about women:

    "I think of a man, and take away reason and accountability".

    Explains everything pretty well.

    Electing Joe Biden as President will be similar to going bear hunting at night with just a pair of chop sticks and a lit candle. You know it is a bad idea from the outset, you can not defend yourself, you are ill prepared for what can and maybe will happen, and you question why you even thought it would be a good idea in the first place.

    Neat story - happy anniversary Flash. I think you just wrote the first chapter of that much needed novel. If she is still laughing at you after 53 years obviously you provide joy. So just keep being funny, maybe even do more stoopid stuff..Keep her laughing!
