Coming soon, but not looking forward to it. How did you deal with it? It might be time for me to grow a pony tail, get an earring, or maybe buy a sports car.

Well you get the camera shoved up the ass when you 40 so 50 seems easy. I don't look foreword to those days


It bothered me when I hit 25 and realized I'm a 3rd of the way through my expected life span.

Its not so bad. After all 50 is the new 40.

Just take better care of yourself.

Actually I'm looking forward to 55. Going to retire.

Having a 7yo daughter doesn't allow me to think about it.

A few years ago. Not a big deal, just another orbit around the sun. Went to work as usual and didn't mention it to anyone there. The good wife made me a nice dinner when I got home.

63 here and thriving, not just surviving

ETA My 50's were my best decade. The 60's started off a bit rough but I think they'll be just as good.

I like to shoot the walkers out of their hands first. Unfortunately Ed can still climb trees, but we figure he has to come down eventually.


Damn those "in-shape" old fellas!

What about the ones in wheelchairs?

53, soon to be 54, back in college (grad school, nights) and working full-time.
Link Posted: 1/27/2011 4:28:59 PM EDT
So you're gonna grow a pony tail, get your ear pierced and get a Miata?

I just turned 40, so I got a while yet. I'm sure it'll happen before I know it.
Link Posted: 1/27/2011 4:33:41 PM EDT
Just over 50. I still ride my motorcycle and go shooting. Body shows some signs of wear. I would not go back to 21 and start all over.

I like to shoot the wheels off wheelchairs.

I can't shoot all these guys by myself for Christ's sake, I post something like 300 times a week, there's not time for everything



I'd offer my assistance, but then beating you to 100k would be impossible.

I'm 55. 50 isn't that big of a deal. Its all about attitude. If you think you're old you are.

Going to be 52 in 2 months still doing the work 18 year would do, or is it doing work that a 18 year old won't DO!

I realize this isn't really possible, but what if you didn't keep track of your own age? It would just be another day, right?

This is probably a typical thing for a 22 year old to say, though, isn't it...

I hit it 4 years ago.

No biggie. In fact, I'm lovin' life more now than I ever did.

I celebrated by going on a trip to the Canadian Rocky Mtns. I hiked to the highest elevation I have been to.

I'm 54.......I find Middle-age VERY liberating.

But.......to handle it you MUST like the guy you see in the mirror!

If you DO NOT like the guy in the mirror....................enjoy your pony tail, earring and sports car.

The arms and AR are mine, not the tights. That was just for fun. I guess I'm not so depressed that I lost my sense of humor yet,so that's good. 50 still has me a bit on edge though.

Wonder peak, overlooking the continental divide in the second picture. Only 9,900 feet above sea level, but its way higher than where I live! (600') We were on the border of British Columbia and Alberta, south of Banff.

Not necessarily. I don't keep up with mine, and it takes me a second or 2 to do the math if somebody asks. It is just another day. More aches and pains, but I've been getting progressively creakier and more battered my whole life. It doesn't feel a hell of a lot different - your interest in doing stupid things (or anything at all) till all hours for days on end wanes in step with your ability to do so.
