Does life really get better on the second half of the century of life? Last year I have had to get glasses and I have Tinnitus so bad the noise drives me crazy, I have 2 busted ribs that are unrepairable, but I have 90% of my teeth and still have most of my hair and I can still run.(a bit). And I can still smile at life. so how do you think you will be at 50, or are you over 50 and have a story to tell about the other side of the big 50?

classy, that's so nice of you to be with your grandchildren. having time with them and spending quality time with them as well. for sure, life isn't bad at 50. it's just a start of something better.

i am still 28 and i know, i will soon reach 50 as well. time flies by so quickly. and i hope when i've reach that age, just like you, i am still healthy and ofcourse, i still want to smile at life. that's the most important thing. age is just a matter of number. but smile is a matter of survival.
