    I'll Be 50 On the 15th

     I've been sitting here all night (I'm a 3rd shifter on a night off) thinking about turning 50 in only 9 more days. I'm looking back at the what could haves in my life. I handled turning 30 and 40 with no problem. So my question (to myself) becomes why is 50 so different...

    The Day I Turned 50.....

     As most of you know I turned 50 on the Sept 15th. What an awful day it was...no surprise party, no gifts (except for my step-daughter Catherine who gave me several schatch off tickets), no phone calls from family or friends. What a depressing day and week it has been. 50 is...

    Update On My Turning 50 On 9/15/09.

    On Sunday the 20th my wife had a huge surprise party for my 50th. It just blew my oars out of the water. Not one single person gave any hint that something was planned. It's the first time any one planned a surprise party for me and got away with it. I have one hell of a good...

    50 Not Out

    Well tomorrow I am 50. OMG I'm actually 50. It seems a big number until you get there. Being 20 or 30 only seems like yesterday. I wish I knew what I know now when I was younger. Well here is to the next 50.
