Fifty Is the New Thirty

Or so I’ve been telling myself the last year. Today is your blog administrator’s fiftieth birthday — and it feels damn good, better than when I turned forty. However, I’ve been fifty for just two minutes, so maybe that’s a question to ask me in September.

Happy birthday to me! If you find yourself inside the perimeter near Cabbagetown and Little Five Points tonight, stop by my cocktailed celebration!

p.s. Don't forget to send us your birthday if you want to be included on the navbar. E-mail us or leave your birthday in the comment box.

Happy, happy 50th, Beth. I love your
attitude and original sense of humor.
You are the perfect example of fifty
being the new thirty-youthful appearance and the drive to enjoy life to the fullest. I am grateful to be friends with you again and look forward to celebrating with you in person soon. Sending you much
joy! Gwynne

Beth! Welcome to AARP. I got a head start since Deb, my wife, is two years older. Did you know the articles are designed to be just the right length for bathroom reading? Fascinating stuff -- all those pharmaceutical ads.
