It’s always a pleasure to see you on the board.
Science has proven that women are the stronger sex, where longevity, surviving illness and coping with stress applies. A mother can hold a baby in her arms for a much longer period than her husband could, as it’s natural.
I remember many years ago, watching a game show on TV, when the host asked a contestant what his wife did for a living, and he said, ‘She’s just a housewife’. There was a huge, disapproving intake of breath from the audience.
My mother used to do the main shopping, and by that, I mean the really heavy stuff. One time, Dad was at work with the transport, so Mother decided to go shopping on her own by bus. A few hours later while sitting on our doorstep at Barrow Street (all the other terraces had been demolished), we children saw Mam struggling towards us from the bus stop on Argyle Street, at the corner of St. Aloysius Church, with about six bags of shopping in each hand and a very large and heavy roll of floor canvas under one arm! We ran to help immediately. They say that women are the stronger sex… I believe every word of it.
