What’s with 50?


WordPress, you got me. Fifty means nothing to me. It’s not a year I remember (in 1950, I was three) and 2050 is probably not a year I’ll live to see. It’s not an address at which I’ve resided, nor an age during which anything special occurred.


Most numbers don’t have any particular significance to me unless they are part of someone’s birthday, anniversary, phone number, or address.

Robbie is about 50, or at least his character is ... Okay, actually, he's 60 and a bit ...

    1. Good for you, Squirrel!! Mookie is a joy to watch..even on days when the Bosox pitching staff implodes. I think he’s a keeper. His uniform number is leaping quickly in popularity.


      1. They were definitely smart to hang on to all those young position players they had coming up the past few years…though, in retrospect, they have to be kicking themselves for letting Blake Swihart stand in the way of them getting Cole Hamels…


  1. If I hadn’t found my 50 year birthday cards I would also have had a problem with this prompt. Mr. Swiss does not even remember being 50, although I do. I could only think of 50 shades of something and I did not even bother to read the book. I read today that Honor Blackman is 91 years old today, then I really began to feel my age. She was the first “girl” in The Avengers series, and Patrick Macnee has also now passed away over the age of 90. How comes all these people are so old. Am glad I am still only a few years over 50.


    1. I remember turning 50 because we went to New Orleans for a long weekend. It was before the big hurricane that did so much damage and we had a great time. But that’s pretty much everything I remember from the entire year. I think we went away for Garry’s 50th, too. But I doubt he remembers. It was a long time ago.

      Honor Blackman looked great in the episode of MidSomer we saw the other night, but I think that was back in the late 1990s. I LOVED the Avengers.
