Family Phil/A Family Runs Through It: "The AARP is now apparently employing mind readers on it's membership committee, because somehow they were able to sense how I feel. Today in the mail I received a personalized plea to join the group and "get the most out of life over 50." Please, give me another decade before you tell me that I'm an old fart."
DFO: Ouch! I blew past 50 and now am 56. I don't belong to AARP, however. Never got around to it. Mebbe I'm in denial. On the other hand, I still keep a great pace at work and enjoy life more than ever now. So, I don't think 50 is something to fear, Phil. Probably my lone concession to age was to give up softball. That, and I walk instead of jog. Any of the rest of you out there fearing the Big 5-0? Or 4-0? Or even 3-0?
