On Turning Fifty
By Admin

September 21, 2010

I have been loving the junk mail that has recently been piling up on our end table near the front door. I especially like the mail from AARP. The first one appeared in anticipation of my fiftieth birthday as ominously as a crack in a levee, which has widened into an irreparable breach, flooding the end table with offers for life insurance, prescription drug delivery, low interest credit cards, and Caribbean cruises, not to mention frequent urination cures and unconvincing reassurances that the best of life is yet to come.  In all seriousness, I’m really not pessimistic regarding the upcoming fiftieth and the inevitable aging process to come. We make it what we will and I actually am looking forward to the blessings to come. However, my laughing diminishes each time my wife gleefully tells me “The AARP deals can help you choose a Medicare plan and you’ll get discounts at the Olive Garden.”
