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.

I turned 55 last week and found out today that I've been selected for O-5 in the naval reserves.

Happy Holidays! Here's to hoping you hold up under the stress that may come with this time of year. Take time to relax, laugh and spend time with the ones you love to be with.

Im doing fine Kenneth thanks. 

I know what you mean David, I understand only to well.

Im 57

Comment by David R. on October 12, 2016 at 9:56pm

I'm still getting used to the 1990s being called "a long time ago"!

Comment by Kenneth on October 12, 2016 at 1:05pm

Terry, I understand what you mean about having a mind that still thinks _young_, but forgetting that your body has started to slow down and show the effects of age. I'm 52, and to me, the 70's were last week. Then, I remember they were nearly 40 years ago! When white and grey hair starts popping up in places (aside from your beard and the top of your head), it's a bit unsettling. Taking into account that a lot of people I went to school with are dead now, I consider myself blessed to have made it this far. 

I'm not really keeping up with AoM these days due to some more extreme behaviors that the site creator and "mods" are ignoring, but I do check in once in a great while. I hope that all of you guys are doing well and enjoying your lives.

Hey I am doing great for 54

Comment by Steve M on September 19, 2016 at 5:39pm
Happy birthday, Terry. I agree. I still think like a twenty year old but my body has grown older around me. LOL.
