Thanks Ann for starting this. I thought I was one of a few.
The years did fly by, and I also feel younger than my years. I have so many things left that I want to do, my list is long and craftroom is full of unfinished projects.

When I saw the over 50 topic, I thought, well, maybe there will be a few that are in their 60's too. I see that there are, and even a great lady in her 70's. I turned 65 in May. I used to think that was waaaaayy old, but it isn't too bad. Have a bit of arthritis, some bum knees and don't remember names as I once did. I am a retired RN, worked mostly in surgery. As I used to tell my older Open Heart patients... we oldsters are like Studebakers...some of us need a valve job, need new tires, an engine work-up and new paint....but we still are CLASSICS.
I'm the one on the left ;0)

I'm 56. Most of the time I don't feel any different than I did at 26 or even 36. But then occasionally my body will remind me I'm not quite as limber or young as I think I am. LOL!

Turning 64 this Saturday (27th) and I'm lovin this time of my life. DH and I are actually busier now being retired than when we were working in Minnapolis. As with others, have the few little things that are not working as they use to, but I feel so much better about myself now than I did in my 20's or 30's. Gerri - went through the same thing as you did - finding out you CAN do things on your own - what a feeling. Was on my own for 15 years before I met DH. Just so thankful we are in pretty good shape for our ages (he'll be 65 in Jan.). Was at a store with my daughter's two kids and she thought I was their mom - good feeling for me. Age is just a number, it's all about attitude - if you feel old, you'll be old - if you feel young, you'll be young. Take care of yourself and you'll last longer and enjoy what life has to offer. But when I'm in a store on "senior discount" days I sometimes feel like saying no when they ask if I'm a senior so I can get the discount! A big MJF horray for all us "over 50" GIRLS who take life by the horns and run with it.

Amen to that Annie! It really is a number and if you are blessed to look younger than that number HOOOORA! Life is grand! Maybe someday my "Prince Charming" will sweep me off my feet. lol

Sherry isn't it something to finally be living, doing things you always wanted to do. Even if its just staying at home watching a movie and sitting with someone you love. I'll be 59 in Sept. and not quit there but sure am heading that direction. Annie I do hope you had a wonderful birthday. Happy Birthday Annie!! Hugs, Brenda

I just turned 71 this month. Ole Ron, (hubby for 50 years) died on July 4. I traded our big motorhome for a little bitty one. Resting up this winter so I can garden and travel come spring. Yes, I know. You either garden OR travel. Watch me. Then I'll do my canning between trips. Friends will ask me if I would travel alone. Why not, I live alone. Being 71 dosen't have a whole lot to do with anything.

Thanks so much Brenda for the B-Day wishes. I totally agree with Sherry - we can now do what WE want without others being judgemental. I know what you mean about taking care of your mother too. Did the same thing as well as hubby doing same with his mom. So now we both feel free to do as we please and have done it. Of course some of the kids (DH's kids) seem to think we shouldn't be spending "their" inheritance on ourselves and traveling, etc. but we do. Now it's our time to have fun while we're still "young enough" to enjoy life. Belle, you go girl!! Sounds like you're having a blast. Keep it up. And like they say, 50 is now the new 30, 60 is the new 40 and 70 is the new 50.

For me, passing the 50 mark was a big relief...like I don't have to try to be some one or something that I'm not just to please someone else. I'm starting to blossom again and stop being so strict and unhappy with myself. If 50 is the new 30, I've got a lot of livin left to do =)

Belle, I have to admire you for your gumption and plans to go ahead with gusto! Bravo! It must be difficult to lose Ron after 50 years. Too many people wither away when a mate passes away. I also think it is neat you have downsized to a smaller motorhome. I know there are many organizations that have groups where you travel together and meet up at various camps. What a good way to meet other people. I love the fact that you seem so full of life. Many blessings to you!

Weeeeee..............
Ain't it great?! I'm 54 and my brain registers about 18, but my body registers about 80...(sometimes, ha)
Age is a number, and my number's not up yet!
This part of my life has been great so far. My kids are grown, my hubby has a job. I have a job, (which I love).
We all have a lot to be thankful for, don't we?

I'm two years shy of being 50 so I guess I don't qualify, but I'm so glad to see there are lots of ladies here who are of the older generation! You go girls!
