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.

That is fantastic Rick. I will be 55 next month and I could not imagine having a small child. Your son has a great father with much to offer.

Comment by Rick Shelton on July 20, 2014 at 4:38pm

I did my life backwards.  I joined the military right out of HS and did 14 active.  After got my BS in physics and MBA, which took 7 years.  Worked for a small company, went backwards working in electronics on CTs and MRIs for almost a year, started working in IT and I'm now in Emergency Management.  I also have a 6y/o son at the age of 54.  So, no 50 is not the end of anything and it's not too late to change directions.

Subaru Legacy. $1600.

Comment by Native Son on July 20, 2014 at 3:45pm

@ Brown Fox:  I hope you aren't driving a VUE.  You're looking at $7,000 to $8,000+ to replace one of those CVT gearboxes.  Things can't be rebuilt in the field, and some nee Saturn GM dealers won't touch the work.

I'm housebound this weekend RJ Price. My car's transmission blew. Long story. I submitted an abridged version to NY Times magazine.

Wanted to mention that I started a new career at 51. Went to university when I was 45, got my Bachelor's at 48 and my Master's at 50. Now I am a civic and art historian. Hate that I wasted almost 30 years doing something I hated (worked for AT&T). But, I think I am a good example of the never too late too start over club. If I could do it, anyone can. Ironically, my B.A. graduation day was the same day as my 30th high school reunion.

You are welcome Mr. Stein.

Comment by Stein on July 20, 2014 at 9:38am

GHR III, I did! You rock Very cool!! Thanks!

Comment by George Henry Robbins III on July 20, 2014 at 9:28am

Thanks Stein. Hope you got the video I sent.

Comment by George Henry Robbins III on July 20, 2014 at 9:27am

Thanks R.C. Live in Alabama. Compete mostly in southeast states. But I have in the past competed in California, Michigan, and New Jersey.
