Are you a S.O.B.? I don’t mean someone like Donald Trump (or some other male malefactor). I mean one Dr. Gayle Carson, who in Feb. 2002 originated Spunky Old Broads Month to celebrate sassy seniors such as my wife (who is not only a Spunky Old Broad, but is married to a S.O.T. (Spoiled Old Turd). How lucky can a gal get?

In noting this audacious occasion, I thought (what right have I to think, you may ask, if you’re a S.O.B.) that I would post a post of post-menopausal women’s quotes covering a broad range of this and that:

I refuse to admit I’m more than fifty-two even if that does make my sons illegitimate.” –Lady Nancy Astor

The main difference between men and women is that men are lunatics and women are idiots.” –Rebecca West

At this point, you may raise the following question, as Peggy Lee did when she wrote and sang….

Well, as the lunatic said to the idiot, when I think of something more, I’ll let you know. Meanwhile, back at the quotes:

Failing to be there when a man wants her is a woman’s greatest sin, except to be there when he doesn’t want her.” –Helen Rowland

Women are one of the Almighty’s enigmas to prove to men that He knows more than they do.” –Ellen Glasgow

It is the plain women who know about love; beautiful women are too busy being fascinating.” — Katherine Hepburn

Time is a dressmaker specializing in alterations.” –Faith Baldwin

Hollywood is the land of yes-men and acqui-yes girls.” –Dorothy Parker

It’s not the men in my life that counts — it’s the life in my men.” –Mae West

I have everything I had twenty years ago, only it’s all a little bit lower.” –Gypsy Rose Lee

I am as pure as the driven slush. –Tallulah Bankhead

Wit lies in the likeness of things that are different, and in the difference of things that are alike.” –Madame Germaine de Stael

Far be it from me to ne pas etre d’accord avec a French Madame. Vive la difference!
