Not going into old age quietly!

Break out the Fostoria! I am officially old and crusty! It'd my 50th Birthday today, and since I am now an official member of AARP, I get to do whatever I want and say whatever I want to say!
LOL I am lording it over everyone I know that while still 50, to all my much older cousins, all 48 of you--- you know who you are and you all are still at least 5 years older than I. And to the the 4or 5 of you younger than me... punks!
To my one cousin who suggested I get lap ban surgery... F*CK YOU! I am exactly what a 50 year old should look like. Jealous. Don't hate me because I am Beautiful.
To my one cousin who suggests I should be more mature and hide my feelings... Seriously? Bottle up everything negative? Sorry sweetie- That ain't how I roll.

Now for the good stuff, for my Birthday my Mom got me a Soda Stream. And since one of the syrup flavors with it is Diet Creme Soda, which for some odd reason no store within a 20 mile radius seems to sell any more, I am enamored with it. No more pop bottles or cans, just the syrup bottles (recyclable) and C02 Bottles,(which are exchangeable) . And Martin got me a whole case of Diet Creme Syrup as well as 2 spare CO2 Bottles and 6 other flavors. WooHoo~ Plus I can make flavored seltzer and club soda with it. Thanks to Beth at Fake Plastic Fish for Introducing me to Soda Stream and Soda Club. Hee hee I make my own soda pop now!

Wowee, Rob -- Happy Birthday to you!!

For many of us, we reach a place of understanding of whom we truly are around this time and so by all means, let it all hang out. Wait. Just a minute now....Nooooooooooo!! ;)

Just teasin'....Have a very good year, zombie-free and all, and please keep on keepin' on inspiring, and entertaining I must add, the rest of us aging cohorts.



P.S. Who needs a bloody mary when there is cream soda in the house! It was stuff of youthful days gone by, as was ginger beer.

Book 'em all, and enjoy the Big Burien 5-0!!

Just saw this - happy belated!!

And you've probably heard this quote, but it seems apropos -

"Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely, in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting 'Holy shit, what a ride!'"
