    ’Twas ever thus, Janis. Old, flabby and wrinkled will always beat skinny, smooth, and dead in my book.

    Old, flabby and wrinkled on the outside, skinny, soft, and smooth on the inside. :)

    Self image is a mirage, usually. Of course, I know I can’t use that as an excuse for my 35 Kg of overweight, but I am more bothered about my health than my looks.

    The caveat is that I am a single male past my prime!

    Don’t aim to compete against 25 year old youth. There is beauty at every age.

    But Arlo loves her and thinks she is beautiful and that is a beautiful thing.

    Janis, be comforted with the knowledge that most men are experiencing the same emotions.

    I guess that’s one plus of being per-maturely bald and having a belly in high school. What little hair that is left turns white and BOOM! you’re pushing 70.

    Arlo, go to YT and watch that “Nail in the Forehead” video again. You have to learn to just listen, and not try to fix.

    Arlo, here’s a novel idea: Hug your wife, now, as if it were your last chance to do so. Rinse and repeat.

    I find Janis shrill, picky, truculent and and even a little mean. I also find her honest, self aware, sincere and loyal. She is a winner and a keeper. And, if yesterdays strip is accurate, she is still a hottie.

    Old and wrinkled are beyond one’s control. Flabby is controllable for most people. " If you haven’t got your health, then you haven’t got anything." (Count Rugen in the Princess Bride)

    Beauty is as much an attitude as a physical attribute. I will take a woman who has experienced life, the joys, the sorrows, who has been tested and never found wanting, who treats those she encounters with grace and compassion, because she has been there and understands, a woman who has had her own successes and failures. This is what life experience gives those who embrace their changes and learn from the experience. The beauty of such a woman shines out of here very being and enriches all around her.

    Last scene of all, that ends this strange eventful history, is second childishness, and mere oblivion,sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything. “As You Like It”, II, 7, 163-166.

    its one of those things if you have low body fat they say your healthy, but if you have some body fat the skin is stretched out and diminishes the wrinkles

    When my wife gets like this, I just remind her that to me, she’s still the 20 year-old knockout in the little black dress that wowed me almost 45 years ago.

    Time to exercise! My wife is 60 and I’d put her up against any fit 30 year old. She exercises almost every day.

    Finally she says what she’s been hinting at toArlo for some time. Why his compliments turn sour for her. Why she is angry all of the time. Arlo could try hugging her now whisper sweet naughties into her ear…

    Dayum, Arlo. The couch is looking pretty good right now.

    Arlo hit the nail on the head: we stress to our children they shouldn’t judge themselves or others against some arbitrary standard of beauty. Yet, as adults, we don’t want to accept the changes in our own bodies. Great, timeless, classic strip!

    Janis is a babe. As long as Jimmy Johnson creates her, she’ll always be a babe. Disclaimer: I’m 82. My wife is 71. She’s a babe. She’ll always be a babe.

    that’s your cue to roll over, take her in your arms, and give her her youth back

    The quality of a book is not found on the cover… it’s found BETWEEN the covers.

    Beyond a certain point you simply have to make peace with it or live in misery. You will never be twenty again, nor will your body. I try to make each decade my best! So far so good. She is already walking a lot so she should have good cardio and that burns body fat. So she’s already doing a lot. She could add in some light free weights. And put on a genuine smile. It makes every woman beautiful!
