The Perks of Being Over 50

Snagged from this website:

1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
2. In a hostage situation, you are likely to be released first.
3. No one expects you to run -- anywhere.
4. People call at 9 p.m. and ask, "Did I wake you?"
5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.
7. Things you buy now won't wear out.
8. You can eat dinner at 4 p.m.
9. You can live without sex (though not without glasses).
10. You enjoy hearing about other people's operations.
11. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.
12. You have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it.
13. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
14. You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.
15. You sing along with elevator music.
16. Your eyes won't get much worse.
17. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.
18. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the National Weather Service.
19. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them, either.
20. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.

Women our age....

When I was twenty, women of forty-five and above seemed to look a lot older to me than they do now.  I see a lot of women around my age now (53) who are very attractive. Is it just a natural shift in…Continue

I got my first letter from the AARP when I was 43.  They actually wanted me to join, pay my dues, and wait until I was 50 to receive any benefits.  No lie!  (I showed the letter to my wife.)Can…Continue

Can't stand birthdays either. Don't care so much about the aging, I dislike the expectations behind it. The attention, or non-attention (so and so forgot my birthday) both suck.

Cheers to you, George.

OK, hope you change your mind.

Comment by Charles Indelicato 13 hours ago

I hear you, George.  My uncle turns 96 next month... so I get your point.  My point is I haven't made a deal about in over 25 years, and am not about to start now.

Comment by George Henry Robbins III 13 hours ago

Disagree Charles, you should do something special for yourself. You could live to be 100 and now you are just halfway through  life. I am 55 and still participate in sports and other activities. A few months ago I was carded (have good genes). Left a huge tip!

Elon,

I'll celebrate 50 the way I rang in 40 and 30 ... I don't.  Somewhere around 23 or 24 I had a kick-ass party for myself, and then decided that was it - I had celebrated enough.  Since then, I don't do birthdays.  Not that I don't acknowledge I am getting older, just don't care to make a day out of it.  My much-better-half and kids recognize it, of course, and my parents did while they were alive, but that's all.  

In fact, this forum is the closest I've acknowledged my age (in a public sense) ever. 

Comment by Elon Erani on Tuesday

Charles most men are not in a rush to admit to their age. I don't believe there will be a rush. LOL. What will you do to celebrate the big 50.

Comment by Elon Erani on Tuesday

David welcome to the club. I am a smarter man over 50.

Comment by David Tindell on Tuesday

 Today I hit the big 58. I can remember my grandfather at 58, when I was a junior in high school. Somehow this does not compute.

Comment by Elon Erani on Tuesday

Edward it may have taken you much longer, but pushed yourself & achieved your goal. Good work,buddy

Fraternal orders for young men?

Hello, I am recently returning to these forums after a couple of years with a new-found interest in old world traditions and community building.I want to combine these two interests by forming a fraternal order for young men to be part of a positive group. Because most young men don't have a lot of disposable income the idea would be to facilitate their practical, rather than financial, contributions to their communities.  We would try out and practice old world skills such as blacksmithing,…See More
