Don't feel old.

Body feels a bit worn out.

50 IS old. Closing in on "retirement age", which with increasing federal budget deficits, is an age that likely will keep moving off into the distance, 68, 70, 7? Does that trend mean that I'm getting younger?

Whoopee! Got married when I was 21 because I figured with the hard drinking, out all night life I was leading I'd never make it past 30 if I didn't change my ways.

My folks are 80 and still going strong. Hope I got their genes. Go mom! Go dad!

Whoopee! I made it to 50!

Now it's time to slide down the other side. ;)

I'm old and I'm happy. Amen.

Sacre bleu, I'm on the wrong side of 50 myself.

Off to pick up my granddaughter today so I can enjoy her for a few days.

Birthdays . . . if it weren't for everyone around me remembering mine, I wouldn't even celebrate the damn things anymore.

Tsk, tsk, tsk. Webwork, why don't you say: "I'm 50 years young and in my prime!" There's nothing like a bit self-delusion once in a while. ;)

I too jumped on the bandwagon

Very scary: for the first time a young Lady kept the door open as an invitation the go first...
I almost had a good laugh

Always have thought and still consider that I will be old when I will "decide" to be old

Its weird you know, im 34 by my age many of my parents and their friends were married with kids in their teens.

I have neither nor do many of my friends, to me it seems odd that people get married so young, most were still in their teens.

As you can imagine its caused a bit of generational friction.

Is this, marrying young, quite common?

Sounds like a daft question but I bet many people over a certain age (50) maried at a younger age than many today, or am I just kidding myself.....

Are we changing tone and becoming serious or is it tongue-in-cheek?

Anyways I did that; it was a mistake
and now I am very happily married since 20 years

Old, my butt. 50 today is what 35 used to be thirty years ago.

In any case, you are still younger than my ex-wife- she whose name cannot be spoken, the master of evil ways and the six hundred and sixty sixth daughter of Old Nick. So you can't possibly be old.

I got old at nineteen. Moved out of the old neighborhood when I was sixteen, lost the places I'd been used to doing my "extreme" mountain biking, hardly got on my bike for three years. Finally got a chance at a little ramp and my stomach turned a flip-flop at the idea of actually using the thing. I knew then that I'd lost my nerve and that it would never be back. This almost plunged me into an identity crisis because I'd always figured I'd be able to go back to doing all the things I used to do if I ever had the opportunity.

I'm 24 now and have gotten used to my new reality . . . and actually it's not so bad after all. I've settled into a decent exercise routine and I'm in good physical shape - and now I'm no longer living on the verge of breaking my back, neck, or other sundry parts on a daily basis. Taken as a whole, life now is every bit as good as it was before, and considerably safer and more comfortable.

On second thought, go get me a rocker, sonny. After re-reading what I just wrote, I feel a little fragile. ;)

Anyhoo, you are only as old as you feel, BTW where did I put that durn walker?

Imagine that. ;)

Happy belated webwork...

I just celebrated my 25th. I also feel like I'm getting old. I can't wait until someone develops an anti aging formula!
