The Year of 50

The Year of 50

The Year of 50
{a running blog post for the year of 2016 because I turn 50-years old in December}

Just like the Super Bowl and Southern Living, I am also turning 50-years old. This is my year of 50. Later in the year, December, I will hit the big one, the BIG 5-0.

No, I am not having a big blowout party. In fact, I have instructed The Gent that we will be out of town for my birthday. That is my wish anyway, I want to be away from home when I turn half a century, where no one knows me. Plus, any excuse for a road trip is a good one.

At any rate, the Year of 50. What does that mean? At first, I thought this may be a running list of things that happened to me this year, saved as a draft of course and then posting it on my actual birthday.

Instead, I think I’ll add a few things now and then publish it. I can add more things as we go along throughout the year, updating this post from time to time.

I’ll record news events, personal happenings, and other things that mean something to me.

So let’s get started shall we?

Date Entered, January 22, 2016:

  • Southern Living turns 50 years old and they are sharing all of their fabulous fifty things on their website.
  • The Super Bowl is breaking tradition and will not have Roman numerals this year, but instead, they will have the number 50 on all their marketing paraphernalia. Me, personally, I’m switching from regular numbers to Roman numerals. Instead of turning 50, I plan to turn the Letter L.
  • Also turning 50 this year is MasterCard. Priceless.

Personally, for January:

  • Had a weekend getaway to Nashville.
  • Visited Guntersville, Alabama.
  • A road trip to Leeds, Alabama to check out the Shops of Grand River.
  • Work-related training in Atlanta, Georgia.

Other little tidbits from January 1966, provided by OnThisDay.com

  • All US cigarette packs have to carry “Caution Cigarette smoking may be hazardous to your health.”

  • Martin Luther King Jr. opens campaign in Chicago.

    I like that. Me, I was getting ready to close on a house, so most of what I was doing was preparing to leave home. 🙂
