This is too funny. I turned 50 on the 5th (Monday) and went to the mailbox. There was my AARP card and membership. A friend called me up to say Happy Birthday. Then he asks "Did ya get your AARP card yet?" All I could say was ef you.

I love this line:

who adds that the coverage is subsidized by concert profits.


Mmmm, I bet concert profits more than "subsidize" the insurance coverage. Yeah, we're getting old. Wonder if the ol' man will get me my next round of Mule tix with that AARP 5% discount.....and then see if he returns the cup of coffee to the bartender for being too cold.

AARP usually sends out the cards around your 49th. for the$12 or so you pay per year, you can get all kinds of discount (except for Mule shows). I started using it at movie theaters and looked for the youngest kids selling tickets. I guess I look old enough to qualify for the discount.

I have never read the magazine though.

I've never actually joined either. What are the big benefits?

Discounts at all the finest restaurants, but only before 5:00pm

Sorry, couldn't resist.

It's probably a good deal to join.

AARP is the largest "lobby" group in Washington.

Hey - I'm not always off work until 5:00. Maybe they could stretch the early bird special to 6:00 pm

LOL - nope...it's mostly buffets.

I enjoy the discounts - figure I earned them after all these years. I do read some of the articles in the magazine - particularly those involving retirement (which I haven't yet but plan to in a few years) and on investments. I get pretty good deals on insurance through my work but I imagine I'll look into some of the groups they sponsor when I retire to see if rates/coverage are better than what I'm finding elsewhere.

Deb, that's so sensible. I'm in denial about the whole AARP thing.
