Yes on the 11th. I will be the BIG 50, you know 49 & 1, 10 lustrum, 1/2 a century, OMG there are two 25 year olds in me.<br><br>
So I have made a date with myself, my plan is to take the bus into town, go for dinner and drinks, then to a local hockey game {i have not been to one for about 30 years}, get a hotel room in town for the night, hot tubbies, room service, breakfast in bed, yeehaw! Yes sireeeeeee I am going to have a little fun with me and myself, it will be a birthday to remember for sure.<br><br>
But how did any of you celebrate this milestone in your life?

I think there are very few people ON VB who have reached that particular milestone. I'm in the "older" VB user group, and I haven't even hit the big five-oh yet. And don't make me think about it yet! I still have 3 years to dread that day! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:"><br><br><br><br>
ETA: But Happy Birthday to you! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/broccoli.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":bobo:">

We got my (conservative 5th grade teacher) mom a tattoo for her 50th birthday. A small chain of vines with three flowers for her three kids.

Karen, if I'm still working at the same place I am currently when my big day arrives, for me, that would be a big deal. We have cakes all the time for birthdays here, but I didn't get one this year or last year. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:"> I don't think anybody even KNOWS when my birthday is, which is why nobody acknowledged it. But I haven't even been asked... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:"><br><br><br><br>
Ah, but I'll make sure they do in three years... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sneaky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":shifty:"> *rubs hands together in evil glee* <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/evil.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":evil:">

Maybe in 26 years when I'm 50, I'll celebrate by going to live off the grid for a while. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> We can trade places!

Thanks for all the Happy Birthday wishes,<br><br><br><br>
I am still a little shocked over the fact that I really am 50. I feel like going back to bed and pulling the covers over my face, 1/2 a century, OMG, jeezus murphy, I didn't see it coming. I have been having way to much fun obviously, the time has just flown by.<br><br>
Anyway, I had a great day, I would recommend that each and everyone of you make a date with yourself at least once in your life, I had a BLAST!<br><br>
Dinner and drinks, then off to the game.<br><br>
Our local Hockey team kicked the oppositions ASS! 6-4<br><br>
A Monti Cristo for dessert, then off to my room,<br><br>
My Hotel room had a huge jaccuzi tub, I poured in the bubble bath and had freakin' bubbles all over the room, it was so funny, I cracked myself up. It is amazing how such a simple thing as a hot tubbie can bring you so much pleasure. I never put a tub {only have a shower stall} up here in the bush, it is just too much work to heat up the water and fill the tub.<br><br>
Drank champagne, just a 1/2 bottle, no drunk tubbing for me heehee, went to sleep, woke up 50, had breaky in bed, swallowed two apirin, got up, cleaned up, checked out, went home to the bush I love.<br><br><br><br>
51 here I come.......................DLS<br><br><br><br>
p.s. jeezy, I do not think that 2 twenty-five year olds could ever keep up with me. hahahahahahaha LOTS OF LAUGHS NOW!!!!!!!!
