Nothings Says "Old" Like Your Very Own AARP Card

Mike's 50th birthday was a blast. There was plenty of good food, friends, family, a keg of Sam Adams and two cakes!

He's lost 20 pounds in the last few months to be sure he still looks good at 50!
Not even 50 candles and he still needed a little help blowing them all out.
Best present of the night, a handmade dinosaur teeth necklace from my niece.
She could barely keep her present a surprise.She was so proud!
As you can see he wore it all night, even during karaoke.
Shameless plug for one of his favorite beers.

His actual birthday was followed by a trip to Lansing to see U-2 in concert at Spartan Stadium with Alec. What could be better for a 50th birthday party weekend?

And then it was back to reality. He got the mail.

In it, was his AARP card. (It used to stand for American Association of Retired Persons but now says it is a membership organization leading positive social change and delivering value to people age 50 and over through information, advocacy and service.) Sounds like a politically correct way to say "Hey, now that you are old..." to me. Oh man, a birthday card would have been so much nicer.

Anyway I think he looks pretty darn cute for any age!
