More About Aging

Did you see my post yesterday? If so, you'll find humor here too! You know you are aging when AARP shows up unexpectedly. I don't know a thing about AARP. Do I need it?

Tomorrow is my big day. It's a fact. There is no way out of it. I wonder if there is discounts for 50? Seriously, I remember dad looking forward to his senior discounts. He always was a bargain shopper.

Like me this fabric is aging. Don't get me wrong I love these and so will you. The eight fat quarters are brushed cotton.

They are simliar to each other. Two piles of four each....two winners. Simple.

Here's what I'm asking of you to be entered in my birthday drawing. I DO NOT want you to blog about this. I'm keeping this just among blogging friends aka "regulars." If you want these make me laugh in your comment. If you want a good laugh read some of the comments in my last post.
I'm banking on the idea that tomorrow will be fun-filled and delightful so I'll announce winners the 23rd.

YES! You can get a McDonald's Senior coffee discount :-) Welcome to the club!

Diva Kreszl said...

sadly I have not found any 'senior discounts' for anyone in their 50's...AARP began mailing me info in my 40's! At 53 I choose to live in complete denial that I am aging...except when I have to tell folks that my oldest son is turning 32 in January (how did that happen?).

BlueRidge Boomer said...

How do you tell people that your children(37 & 30) are older than you are.....this is my problem!!?? Good ole' AARP...they're everywhere and there are some good discounts out there....that you can get without joining....Rose's has a senior discount on Tuesdays!!

Darlene said...

Soon you'll be hearing from the Social Security Administration - it's gonna happen, trust me! LOL
I was so excited when I turned 50 - I love the 50's.

PunkiePie said...

Well, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I have no AARP wisdom to share with you. I have a few more years before I get it.

Have a great birthday tomorrow!

Libby said...

We started getting AARP brochures when Hubby retired from the USMC . . . at 39! We laughed - in the coming year, we will qualify for membership for real *s* Look forward to the discounts.

Barb said...

An ode to old age
There's quite an art to falling apart as the years go by,
And life doesn't begin at 40. That's a big fat lie.
My hair's getting thinner, my body is not;
The few teeth I have are beginning to rot.

I smell of Vick's-Vapo-Rub, not Chanel # 5;
My new pacemaker's all that keeps me alive.
When asked of my past, every detail I'll know,
But what was I doing 10 minutes ago?

Well, you get the idea, what more can I say?
I'm off to read the obituary, like I do every day;
If my names not there, I'll once again start -
Perfecting the art of falling apart


found this online....enjoy!!!! Just know that there are only two alternatives...one is getting older and one is...well...you get the picture!!

MamaBagel said...

My hair turned white at an early age and somewhere along the way I decided to stop dyeing it so I have been asked if I qualify for a senior discount since my 40's. One day I was out with my friend (who is only 3 years younger than I am) and a saleslady referred to her as my daughter. I must say that stung a little bit!

Cindy said...

I'm having too much fun readin yesterday's and today's comments.

When I turned 50 my waist and inseam exchanged measurements.

Oh, wait - that happened after my second daugher....LOL

Now I just TRY to snap my jeans and when that doesn't work - I use rope. Try it - it works.....LOL

You best behave today. Just remember not only does tomorrow start another decade for you, it also starts another half century.

A Quilter Awakens said...

On the day I turned 50 (a little more than a year ago), I was delighted to find I qualified for the senior discount at the county pool. Instead of $4 I was able to pay $1 each visit. Whoohoo! Love it.

Needled Mom said...

No, you do not need AARP to get those great discounts. Seems like everyone has their own set age for the discounts and no set rules. There are advantages to aging!!!

call me crazy said...

Oh I threw those out so fast when they came in the mail! LOL I didn't want my kids to see them! LOL :) My DS already thinks I'm ancient and is always asking things like~ was there electricity when you were a kid! :o He just turned 17~ of course I had electricity! And my DD thinks 30 is old! LOL Hope you have a fabulous birthday!!

julieQ said...

I know when I became a golden oldie...my patients are calling me ma'am instead of "honey"! Sigh...and we too are receiving AARP. Thank you for the plaid giveaway..right up my alley as you know!!

Pat said...

Heck...are you kidding me? Sign up for AARP. Hubby got his papers first as he is nearly 2 years older than I am. He tore them up...was in denial about approaching 50. As soon as I got mine, I signed up and have saved on hotel rooms and various other things since that time (have asked if they give AARP discounts and many places do). This was over 10 years ago and I renew it each year...and hubby has used it now, too, and realizes it's worth the money. AND...they have good publications they send out on a monthly basis...magazine-like...that are included in your membership. I don't mind people knowing I'm an "old fart".......and you shouldn't, either. (OOPS....sorry...didn't mean to call you an old fart...LOL....) HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! (And nice giveaway....please enter my name in it, too!)

Terry said...

Happiness is...when you're turning 46, and your husband AND son both think you're turning 48 and put your candles in the shape of the number 48 on your birthday cake! LOL Happy birthday and thanks for the giveaway.

SewCalGal said...

First, I want to say Happay Birthday!

Did you know you are now eligible to join the Pink Ladies, which is the youngster group of the Purple Hat Society? {I'm not a member, but it is a fun group}.

I think it is amazing how AARP knows when you turn 50 and welcomes you to their group.


I do believe some department stores give a discount to 50+. I was at one store when they offered me a discount and I declined because I wasn't old enough. The very young cashier asked me my age and I shared 50 and she said I was eligible for their Senior discount! Hymm.

Enjoy! Life really does get better in your 50's.

well happy happy happy birthday
ok getting AARP is a good thing, the discounts are worth it! just think save those discount dollars and put them towards fabric :)
don't you know 50's are the new 30s!!!
Kathie

Robyn *Ü* said...

LOL!! Well my little girl asked me how old I was and I asked her "how old do you think I am" and her answer was hmmmm... about 60!! (I'm 38). The worst part was she said my husband was 17 (he's 43). I must look much worse than I thought I did ;0)

Rita said...

Happy Birthday, Mary! I haven't received my AARP packet yet, I still have two more years. When my husband turned 50, we had a good laugh when he received his packet.

Laurie said...

Just want to wish you a Happy 50! Hope it's a wonderful day!

Pokey said...

My friend Ginny started a prayer request for her knee with this statement, "I'm wearing a new fragrance these days. It's called 'Icy Hot'".
Our friend Jerry (who is our 30 year old daughter's Kindergarten teacher) told us about purchasing a belt at Ross. When He went to pay, it was cheaper; he asked why, and they said it was happy Tuesday. He was happy to save money and left the store smiling.
He told his wife about the savings, and she told him it was a senior discount. "Oh, no she didn't!" he said. He was so annoyed about being put in that category, I thought he was going to take the belt back! We all had a good laugh at that.
Then, I noticed that the children in my class quit slipping and calling me mom. Now, they slip and call me grandma. Oh, well.
Happy Birthday! Keep smiling, those laugh lines are better than the grouchy ones-!

Wendy said...

I don't know what AARP does, we don't get that here. Ha Ha Ha....I'm younger than you, I don't turn 50 until 2011. Have a great Birthday and let me know how 50 feels.

Lissa Jane said...

Oh dear... I dont know what AARP is either (I am in Australia)... I figured this past week I am on the downhill slide to 40... I am now closer to 40 than 39... I figure you are only as old as you feel and this morning (its 4.50am here) I am feeling pretty darn old... LOL I hope you hae a wonderful birthday and if you dont like that mail, dont open it.. Trusting you have a wonderful birthday

Dotty Jane said...

Happy birthday! The thing I noticed most about turning 50 (3 years ago) was the quick expansion of my waistline. And of course the AARP! Otherwise, it's not too bad:)

I'll have to check into that McDonald's coffee discount.

Vicki

Kim D. said...

I'm one year ahead of you and I haven't found any discounts for 50. Here is goes, they call it the "Golden Years" but it's not so golden when your body shrivels and starts to droop, those female hormones make a flash, you can't see and you lose your hearing, your body aches and your eyes are tearing. Memory loss is the new thing and your arthritis takes away your spring.

Is there anything I've missed.. LOL Have a Very Happy Birthday..

Loris said...

Turning 50...not coming up with a funny story but I like the 50's. I'm more than half way through them and keep learning and am appreciating the new views I see.
Well, maybe not so much in the mirror :-) but my heart is full.
Enjoy those discounts. I liked the one I got at the movie theater.

Sherry said...

My sister will go into a store and they ask her if she is s senior and at first she would say NOOOOOOOO and think how dare you. But now she says if you want to ask me that you will be giving me my discount. So not yet being a senior she gets to rep all the discounts. Good for her

Gayle said...

Welcome to the wonderful exclusive 'over 50' club! I'm actually enjoying this season of my life - not as much stress with the children all grown & gone - I think you'll like it!

Quilt Rat said...

I love being in my 50's. Seriously it has been the best and I hope you will find it so as well.

Now I have to get busy and make little party hats for Kitty, Ginger, Bonnie and Pepper.....so we can celebrate right along with you.

Have a most FABULOUS day!

Pat said...

Happy birthday Mary! I hope you have a great day.

Paula said...

I don't know how I feel about a blog post which speaks of aging and "regulars"! Metamucil, anyone??? Happy Birthday!!!!!

Lorraine said...

Happy Birthday....I figure I will qualify for seniors discount when I get to be a senior...and that won't be happening anytime soon....at 56 (just turned) I think senior is at least 80!!LOLOL...love the ode to ageing in one of the comments...!! I love having birthdays....and getting older - because let's face it - the alternative is no fun at all!

Danielle said...

I just got a good laugh reading the comments- Happy Birthday!

Susie said...

First and foremost; Happy Birthday to you!

Y'know, I realize that AARP is great for a large number of people but maybe they should delay sending it out. I mean, 50 is the new 40 right? (Since I'm 33, I'll take the "23" description.)

It just seems that once that comes in the mail a person should automatically start saying "Eh? What'd you say? Speak up dearie!" or some such thing.

I guess it could be worse. At least they didn't include a voucher for a free cane/walker or a brochure with a huge discount for the "Hoveround" and one with a coupon for "batteries for life with the Miracle Ear"....or did they?

StitchinByTheLake said...

Since my husband will be changing to medicare in February he called Social Security to find out what he was supposed to do (this was last Friday). They assured him they had mailed him a card in September to fill out and mail back. Which he never got. So they would mail another and it would take...six or eight weeks. Yep. Except that very afternoon the one from September came in the mail. When it comes to the Social Security folks and the Post Office folks, well we'll take old age, thank you very much! blessings, marlene

Stitched With Prayer said...

Hi Mary, About the AARP...if you want a senior discount then join. They will give you discount on car insurance, life insurance and health insurance. They also keep your mailbox full of offers for them and if you accept their 'generous' offers, you get **drum roll here** a new calculator with oversized buttons so you can see them. I'll be 60 next April and I think I have Corpal Tunnel just from opening the mail from AARP. Okay, one more thing about seniors, my hubby lost his wedding ring today and after looking through the entire house for over an hour while I was away getting my hair done, he was fearful that it had come of in the pool this morning at water aerobics. He decided to call them and see if anyone had turned it in, but when he reached for the phone, he noticed he was wearing it on his RIGHT hand!!! Nuff said...Have a wonderful, delightful Happy Birthday.

Kaaren said...

I remember my DH and I having breakfast in Shoney's with my Mom and Dad. I was 48 at the time. When it came time to pay the bill the waitress asked Sam and I if we were seniors and I replied, "I guess if we look it then I guess we are." Since then, I never gave a damn...I mean darn.

Welcome to the 50's, Mary. {{hugs}}

Yes, we get a discounts at Kentucky Fried & Macca's
Our local shops discounts on Tuesday's...they know us now enough not to ask for ID...but one cheeky young man asked for ID, he said.." come on you can't possibly be that old!"...he's my new best friend!
Have a lovely Birthday Mary..♥

P.S....I deleted my last comment due to poor spelling...that means I must be "that old" after all ♥

Lori said...

I'm 47 yo and about 2 years ago a punk kid asked me for ID when I was buying tobacco! I gave him "the look" and said you've got to be kidding. He sold me the tobacco and I didn't show him any ID. It was pathetic. I don't even look close to 18!!!
And I order off the senior menu if I am not so hungry:)
Happy birthday dear one.

andsewon said...

Happy Birthday Mary!!!
After the shock wears off( OH MY GAWD 50!!!) you will settle on in and do fine!!I look in the mirror sometimes and ask “now who are you again”??
“Oh yes I recall now…you are the Older Me…well now aren’t we something ..we made it this far and still here”!
Age is a state of mind…sometimes I am a 2 yr old in my mind but my body says it is 80!!
So see you will begin to have long conversations with yourself now... ha!ha!
Hugs!!!
Lola

Cathi said...

Happy, happy birthday, Mary!! I think the 50s are great.
I hope you have a marvelous birthday and enjoy this new decade!

LYNNE DEMETER said...

I feel your pain! I started getting AARP mail when I was 50 also, now I'm 56 and still don't participate. Maybe that day will come, but right now I'm still rockin' and rollin' and in my mind I am still 30! Like many things in life, including fabric, I choose to say I'm mellowing with my age!

Jo said...

Have a great birthday....mine was just last Monday. My hubby took me to Country Threads in Garner, Iowa and let me pick my present. I hope you get something WONDERFUL as well. The only "benefit" I am getting from growing older is being told I am borderline diabetic and gray hair....I hope there's something more out there than that!

Dawn said...

Too funny ~ AARP is like an American coming of age ritual :) Take all the discounts you can get, and buy more fabric with your savings! Have a Happy Birthday!

miniaturequilter said...

Happy Birthday!
This made me laugh- (I have 3 boys, 2 are older teens and the youngest is 4 years-old) My little one had a playdate with another preschooler. I was sitting with the mom, and she started to tell me her biological clock was ticking (she has 2 kids and wants one more) and that she was still young enough but her husband was getting old. I couldn't remember how old he was so I asked-she said 34, (she is 26) I am older than her husband so i had to laugh-she seemed a little embarassed at first but we both ended up laughing. I forget I am getting old until I am reminded that i am now one of the older moms. Well that, and the aches and pains and gray coverage hair dye!

Carrie P. said...

Hey you should definitely join AARP. We did and we get 2 magazines and there is some useful info in them and there are so discounts that you might be interested in. I got a discount at one of my favorite clothing stores with a coupon that was in the magazine.
50 really is not old enough for most discounts. Does that make you feel better?
Hope you have an awesome birthday.

Lise said...

LOLOL... you are too funny... and the 50 thingy regarding discount.. I tried that couple of years ago..and to my suprise lol...some hotels give it ...woohoo... oh,,ps ... after 50 it's fun,,, when you can't figure out what you were going to do..excuse is over the mark and who cares...not me... so enjoy have fun these are the best years and more to come... happy birthday and happy stitching..count me in...lol....

Debi said...

I love the idea of AARP, when I turned 50 (3 years ago) my father signed me up for AARP and I received all the materials on my birthday, including a one year membership! My father also loves those senior benefits, shops at Kohls' on Wednesdays and know which days to eat for less at his fav restaurants!

Deb said...

I'm 57, and my sister is 53. She was going to introduce me to a friend of hers, and the friend automatically thought I was my sister's mother!!! Nooooo!!!!! Plus....this girl had already met my mother (81) a few months earlier and thought she was just seeing her again. You can go ahead and laugh if it will help me win the book....but I'm still cringing!

Happy 50th!!!!!

bingo~bonnie said...

It HAS to be that the AARP buys mailing list and names from the quilting magazines - b/c I kid you not, I received a package from them like you only about 2 years ago with a temporary card... and application... and I'm only 35!!!!

I wish you to have a very Happy Birthday! those fabrics are so nice together - something beautiful will be made from them, I just know it! ;)

Love from Kentucky (I'm on vacation!)

Mary, enjoy YOUR day!!!

You must still be young... otherwise the second item on your receipt would have been depends!

Seeing your AARP things reminds me of a quilting and AARP related story... When Tim and I were dating 20+ plus years ago, before I even hit 30, one day I was whining about getting all of those AARP applicatinos. With a completely straight face, and I am sure in all seriousness, he said, "Well, it's probably because of all of those quilting magazines you get." Even with that, we got married and are still married!!!

Best wishes for a very Happy Birthdy and a year filled with good health and fun!

Your non-blogging, "ann"onymous friend!

Jacque said...

Happy Birthday!!! I'm not quiet there but I do have a 10 yr old boy that likes to talk about his parents ages and tell me how old I will be when he's 20 or even my age. Nothing like kids to keep you young!
Have a great birthday!

Kim said...

Happy birthday! So you don't want any of us mentioning your advancing age in our blogs, huh? Well, I can't blame you. Here's one thing to watch out for. You know how all the seniors go for the early bird specials and eat dinner at 4 p.m.? The problem with that is that you're hungry again by 7 or 8 p.m. and then you start eating too much dessert! Sadly, I'm at the point where I ASK the waiters to card me when I order alcohol in restaurants and I threaten not to tip them if they don't. I know something that will perk you right up--I'll email it to you!

Béa said...

Happy birthday Mary, welcome to the club! I hope you have a great day.Hugs from France.

Becky said...

Don't forget ( yes, that is the problem with the 50's, complete brain malfunction) most quilt shops have a birthday discount. Splurge!

Hope your day is Fantastic! Happy Day!

Janet said...

Happy Birthday Mary! Been 50, done that it's overated but I am now at that age where the year is filled with appointments for health scans and checks, breasts, skin and other unmentionables. Do they think that it's all downhill from here? It's just a number.One thing that makes me feel good is the hairdresser being jelous that I have no grey hairs, sad isn't it!

Fiesta said...

Mary Feliz Cumpleanos!
I tried emailing you personally but I could not get the email to work.
I hope you have a blessed day.

Carol said...

A big Happy Birthday Wish for you! I've loved the 50's!

Vivian said...

Happy Birthday! I'm glad that we signed up for AARP. The rather inexpensive yearly fee came back to us in savings rather quickly.
Discounts for car rentals, a carriage ride in Savannah, GA, and the entrance fees to museums we've visited.
We get a monthly magazine and a newsletter to help exercise our brains and let us in on some of the finer points of reaching "senior status."

We can't turn back time--but I'd trade my upper partial and all my little bottles of meds if I could have 10 years back.

Joyce said...

Happy Birthday. The real discounts start when you turn 65 up here in Canada at least. If you want a good laugh go and look at the cartoon here:

Dear Mary,
I would go to that shop again and buy some more six packs and say to myself and whole world:"Yes, I'm 50and I feel proud.
I'm closer to 55 then to 54 and I'm living the best years of my life now.So, my dear. enjoy it.
All the best for your birthday, and of course, I wish you another 50.

kimland said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Enjoy your day.

Cara said...

Happy Birthday Mary!

onlymehere said...

About a year ago I was in Kohl's and the sales clerk asked if I got a Senior discount. I was so offended but I laughed it off! I didn't think I looked 65. Then I turned 50 in October and started to wonder if I get a Senior discount at 50. Hmmmm, I think I'll call them today and let you know! Does it also mean that we get the good Senior Citizen parking spots? With my bad knees and feet there are days I sure could use it, lol! I'm seriously thinking about senior discounts now. Maybe I've been missing out for two months. I got the AARP stuff too and haven't done anything about it. Let me know if you learn anything about that too okay?!

Thimbleanna said...

Happy Birthday Mary! Darlene sent me over LOL!

Cindy said...

I had to come back for a few chuckles this morning.

And....to let you know today, the 22nd, I'm thinking of YOU.

Quilter Going Bananas said...

Happy Happy Birthday Mary!
I have no sage advice for you about being 50 since I'm younger than you.
Have an excellent day anyhow :^)

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Happy Birthday Mary!!
So I'm MUCH younger than my husband and don't QUALIFY as a senior YET. So should I have thanked the waitress that said "oh I gave you the senior discount too" without me mentioning it?
I didn't thank her specifically, but I guess she was trying to be nice. For me, I didn't need to be reminded the age that is nearing!
Enjoy your day.

I've been getting stuff from AARP for three or four years now - just ever so often. And I'm just now 34!

Have a wonderful birthday and A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

SubeeSews said...

Visual approval can work the opposite way. I remember being 23 with a 2year old and VERY PG and was refused to purchase beer with my groceries. As I did not drive then there was a fiasco at the checkout. Had to get that "hubby" into the store to verify. He is an ex now. So funny. I was so angry. Now I wish that would happen again. HA I will be 60 next March. My 12 years younger hubby enjoys the benfits of an ARP membership.

Susan Ramey Cleveland said...

Happy BIrthday, Mary. Actually, I started getting material from AARP in my 40s. I wouldn't join, ever. My husband joined but I told him I didn't want to be in a club for old people. He just shook his head.
I hope your birthday is wonderful.
P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment.

Caths Pennies Designs said...

Happy Birthday to you! And 50 means you're almost as old as me!
When I turned 50, not only did I get the AARP mail, I also started getting mail from a local retirement community, inviting me to their open house. At first I was insulted, even though I was sure they sent it to me by mistake. Fifty year olds aren't ready for retirement homes! However, after looking at the lovely brochures and seeing the beautiful grounds with indoor swimming pools, maid service, gym, wonderful gourmet foods served right in my apartment ... I kinda want to go there now. Have a wonderful birthday and Christmas!

Stephanie D. said...

Happy Birthday! Welcome to middle age! (Well, don't you want to reach 100???)

I know there are places that give discounts, but I forget to ask about them--and I'm now 58! Some places seem to have raised their age qualifications--probably because we baby boomers are flooding the market.

I think it's a little creepy that AARP knew when I turned 50, because I never contacted them and I want nothing to do with that group.

Michelle said...

Happy Birthday! I used to think I was a year older than I was, until I got older and started thinking I was younger. Now the gray hair is starting to come in so there is no doubt.

QuiltSue said...

Ican't think of anything funny to say now. Oh wait, perhaps that's cos of old age?

Magnolia Bay Quilts said...

OMG! AARP? How did they find you?! Hope you had a terrific birthday!

Barb said...

Happy Happy 50 !!
My husband received an AARP membership for his big birthday in march from his older brother.
The discounts are good, check it out.
I loved the receipt - - what a good chuckle!

Kate said...

No, you do not need AARP. My husband and I were members for one year and it did nothing for us, so don't waste your money. Love your blog though and find it very entertaining. Happy new year and blessings to you and your family.

Carole said...

You know, I also got solicitated from those, whatever they are! I just don't feel old so I don't need it! lol

Looks like you had a wonderful birthday celebration! Happy belated birthday! Cheers!
