    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Even if he needs help saying it

    Well, there’s a new wrinkle…

    There are times you need to say “the right thing”.

    And there are times when you need to speak The Truth And Nothing But. I think this is such a time.

    When a beautiful older woman strives to look ‘young and pretty’, the end result is usually disastrous.

    Terrible choice of words, there, Arlo…

    Try “still pretty at any age.” No longer either is not a good way to insure your safety.

    She apparently has little respect for a man who would want a wife that looks like her.
    I’ve been married over 30 years and like my kids, as long as she’s healthy, she’s perfect! :)

    I disagree, Arlo is saying the right thing.
    If she goes through with it, she wouldn’t be his Janis.

    Women are like a fine wine, both get better (and more expensive) with age.

    After 41 years, my husband still calls me his ‘pretty lady’, and that means more to me than any procedure could! (Even though I have never been ‘pretty’!)

    Like Janis said, she’s doing it for herself, not for Arlo. I can understand why Arlo isn’t particularly comfortable with that. At their age if she doesn’t think she looks good then how does she feel about his looks?

    Uh oh! :-!

    Janis is fishing for “permission” to do something utterly ridiculous and selfish that won’t give her what she wants in the end. And she’s putting Arlo in an impossible position. If he supports her she’ll get mad because she’ll think he’s implying she needs plastic surgery, and if he doesn’t support her, he comes off the loser, too.

    “Janis, I love you just the way you are.” That’s the formula. Lerner and Lowe said it beautifully way back in the 50’s when they wrote “How To Handle A Woman” for their famous musical, Camelot.

    Not when it is fake. Enough of these ‘procedures’ and they look like a space alien. They ‘tuck’ until their ears meet on the back of their head.

    Um, Arlo, I’ve been meaning to speak to you about that nose of yours.
