    Think about it, Val…do you REALLY want the details of your mother’s SEX LIFE??? (Puke!)

    Ask Holly in about four days.

    If she REALLY wants to know, I’m sure Holly will fill her in. For now, keep watching for when she talks to Holly.

    Yeah, really. No one needs to know details, regardless of how old the other person is (or their relationship). Just be happy that she had a great time and has such a goofy grin on her face. :-)

    Just know that it IS better than yours and he doesn’t need Viagra or such, because he’s healthy and they love each other (My man is 9 months younger than I, too).

    Just be satisfied with the silly grin. It tells you all you need to know.

    The old axiom about sex with an older woman appears to be holding here. “They don’t tell, they don’t swell (get pregnant) and they are grateful as hell.”

    I think you missed the point. Your experience is exactly what I was talking about. By the way, I didn’t make it up, it is a very old saying.

    Frequently attributed to Ben Franklin!

    Sometimes it seems like Val tries to live vicariously through others’ experiences like a randy teenage boy. Meanwhile she has a relationship that she is sitting on her hands with. Phil probably dreams of getting a little wild with Val, but he has to restrain himself. If they would finally let it happen then Val wouldn’t have to derive satisfaction from listening to other experiences.

    Yeah, Ben Franklin was a very practical dude.

    In fact Ben Franklin was one of the few people, along with George Washington who tried to warn General Braddock of the folly of fighting against guerrila tactics with stationary warfare in the woods. His troops were then massacred.

    Franklin is supposed to have said this (but not in doggerel) in a letter advising a young man to look for an older woman. Life expectancy was a lot shorter then which may or may not account for his concept that older women are supposed to be grateful. These days we can do better than that, and I think Arnold probably knows it!

    @harebell

    I wouldn’t consider age to be major factor in the quality of a woman compared to other attributes.
