Default I turned 50

I turned 50 on Saturday, I realized that I'm not getting old but how loved and blessed I am after my wife organized a surprised birthday party for me. It's the small things that count the most I will watch this video every day to start my day.

As someone that turned 50 a couple months ago, welcome to the club! Good video, and small world - I saw a coworker/neighbor in your video at the ~1:50 mark (Leonard (and his wife))!

Happy Birthday! Age is just a number and I can tell that you are aware of this. I'm 52 and still feel 25, well most days anyway : )

I turned 50 last year. Still run circles around the 21 year olds, just takes 2 days to recuperate now.

Don't try water sking.
Next morning your fine. That afternoon you start to feel you can handle anything.
Next morning your like O SHIT. Takes two days to hit you but man when it does.. Its there.


Great video, and agree your a lucky guy but man don't even worry about 50 being old.
Life don't even begin till 40, After 50 its a flipping blast. Kids are gone, you have money again, and the time to enjoy life.
58 working a 20 year old physical job, and long as you stay active you'll be young.
We have guys still hooking cars in their 70s. NO KIDDING.
Your just now getting to the age you can afford the hobbies you want in life.

As others mentioned, thanks for your service and get going having fun. Your wasting day light.
