Turning 50

It's a landmark birthday. The big Five-o.

We're celebrating it tomorrow night with a few friends, but today's the day.

And how did they figure it out? The folks at AARP. They timed it just right, and I received my first AARP card. It's not really a card, it's tied to an offer for me to join.

I'm fine with it, but my wife Irene is NOT on board with the spouse getting a free membership (and card). She has no interest in being old.

I just think the discounts are cool.
