The Big Five-Oh

Yes, in a couple of weeks I will be fifty! Oh, dear. No, no crisis involved, just planning fun with friends, food and drink. Life has been good to me (and I've been good to it), so am happy.

Claire, there's still life over on the other side of the hill. No worries.

Claire, congratulations. When I turned fifty I got a gorgeous coffee mug with "NIFTY FIFTY printed on it. And when you look at the alternative, aging is wonderful.

yeah wasabi, I would say that is true, no insecurities of youth only anticipations of growing old gracefully, i.e., coffee in one hand, wine in the other.

You reminded me of a joke. This guy goes to the doctor, who tells him that he doesn't have much time left. The guy asks how much time he has.

The doctor says, "10."

The guy says, "10 what? Months? Weeks?"

and the doctor continues, "...9, 8, 7..."

Hey, I wasn't the one talking old! My age may go up every year, but I do not plan to get old!

Nord reminds me of a gardening show I saw on PBS once. A man said that you should be able to care for a truly great garden while drinking 2 cups of coffee in the morning, or two libations in the evening. My kinda guy, definitely my kind of garden!
