Fifty is Nifty + Poetry Friday

Yesterday was my birthday...my 50th birthday. I am grateful to be able to celebrate another successful trip around the sun - albeit with a little more gray hair.






















This week we are celebrating poetry at The Miss Rumphius Effect. Join us!

Happy 50th Bridget! Woohoo!

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Catherine! Still celebrating...with poetry! =)

Liz Steinglass said...

I think there's one word you might want to cut. OLD! You don't seem old in the slightest.

Bridget Magee said...

Hee-hee, thank you, Liz! That's the kind of feedback I love. =)

Tricia said...

Welcome to the club! And I love the poem. I'm glad you are celebrating your day with poetry.

jama said...

Happy Birthday, Bridget!! You're the coolest and youngest 50-year-old on the planet. :)

Doraine said...

I loved being fifty. I think that whole decade was pretty much loads of fun. Enjoy yourself. Happy birthday.

Violet N. said...

Clever, Bridget! Happy Birthday. (But I've seen you and didn't notice one shade of grey, let alone 50!).

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Tricia! It's a good club with lots of distinguished members. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Aw, thanks, Jama! Coming from the coolest blogger on the planet I take that as high praise. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Doraine! I'm looking forward to a whole decade of fun. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Violet! You're too kind - my gray is cleverly disguised as what my daughter's like to call "grond" (gray/blond). =)

Carol Varsalona said...

Bridget, happy birthday, the thought, half-century, makes me laugh. Just think of how wise you are and how beautiful those gray shades compliment life.

Buffy Silverman said...

Happy happy, Bridget (you young 'un, you. It's all relative.) Your poem made me laugh.

Brenda at FriendlyFairyTales said...

Happy Birthday!! Here's to the next 50!

Jane @ www.raincitylibrarian.ca said...

That's a great milestone, here's to many more years, and many more grey years, to come! Rock them with pride - you've earned them!

Tabatha said...

"Grond" made me laugh. Happy Birthday! And many more!

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Carol! I love your perspective "those gray shades compliment life". =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Buffy! True, it is all relative. Hopefully this is the end of my midlife crisis. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Brenda! Another 50 is what I am shooting for. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Jane! Again, I love our PF community's perspective on age and gray - rock on! =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Tabatha! I tried to put grond on my driver's license, but the DMV lady I had to pick either gray or blond. She said I looked more blond, so that's what I put. She became my friend that day. ;o)

Diane Mayr said...

I hope you had a great day! Oh, to be 50 again! Enjoy it!

Linda Mitchell said...

Happy Birthday! I'm right on your tail....my 50th comes up next August. How did time fly so fast? I really don't feel a half century. I think poetry keeps us young! Enjoy every moment.

Keri said...

Happy birthday! I say of my gray: I earned & learned with every one!

Bridget Magee said...

I did, Diane, thank you! I plan to make the most of it. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Linda! Yes, poetry keeps us young - I love that! =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Keri! "Earned and learned" - the keys to life and perspective on aging. Love it! =)
