Half A Century

4/28/09

Well, I don't know how this happened, but it definitely has happened. Officially I am now a half century old, and I qualify for AARP and senior citizen discounts. Nasty as this sounds, it is actually shaping up to be one of my better birthdays, and I am looking forward to the next 50 years!

Happiest of birthdays to you. You're gonna love it. The best days of my life started after 50 and I'll bet you'll start see the same phenomona!

Happy birthday, Karen, 50 is the new 30. I have pretty much enjoyed my 50s and I hope you do too.

Happy birthday, Karen. My fifties were great, and were a precurser for my sixties. Have a great day. Enjoy all that wisdom you have accumulated, as well as the discounts at hotels.

Happy belated birthday, Karen! Many happy returns!
I think "the 50's" are a magical time for women.
As my dear friend, Rachel, likes to say: "Strong women: may we know them, may we raise them, may we be them".

I'm behind in my blog reading, so I'm sending you belated birthday wishes.
Glad you had a good day. My 50th (Dec 2007) wasn't the greatest day, but I got to take Amtrak thru the Rockies and on to Salt Lake City the week before. So I count that as my birthday.
Hoping you have a wonderful 50th year.
