I'm not sure how it happened or where the time went, and the term 'half century' is not sinking in as of yet, but like yankweed I turn 50 flippin' years old today. But, I'm not going to duck it, but am facing up to it. Hopefully, I don't plan on asking anyone "Can I sit in the sun today" anytime soon as there is thankfully plenty of starch left in my corset. I promise to grow up next week! German beer and homecooking!!

Happy 5-0 old man! I'm only about 2 mos younger than you. Have a great one Derek.

What's that Neil Young song lyric, "it's old but it's good"? The Thrasher? Anyhoo, keep that in mind.

Welcome to the club, Derek! Ain't half as bad as you might've feared it would be. Sign up for that AARP or AAA stuff! Cheap(er) movie tickets!

Happy birthday!

Happy 50th Birthday, Derek! (from someone who has been all about taking advantage of my AARP discounts for awhile now )

I hit the 50 mark about three years ago, and decided to declare it the "Year of Rich", kinda like the Chinese do with dogs and rats and so forth. Fortunately for me, 2006 also coincided with some great tours. That year's Beacon run was great, got to see Knopfler, Gilmour, Trower, CSN&Y, EC, Steely Dan, Tom Waits and some others.

Here's wishing yours will be as much fun as I had!

No wonder the ABB are an "oldies" band. They have oldies fans.

Sit in the sun anyway. Too much is bad for you. Plus much more comfortable enjoying a beverage in the shade on a hot day.

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Derek!! Have a great one. Your best years are ahead of you... I reached 60 yrs in March, bludy hell that takes some getting used to but its all in the head. I feel great perhaps because I also retired in March! Now spend as much time as possible, within budget, on the road. 3 ABB concerts at Beacon, 3 dTb concerts in the UK with 2 more in July. June and July look awesome with Martin Simpsom, Lau, dTb, Flatlanders, Rodney Crowell, Lucinda, Susan, Los Lobos etc
Life's a blast
Be well

Happy Birthday Derek! 50 can be great - Not counting my children, I've done more, had more fun and been happier in the two years since I've turned fifty than I had in the previous two decades. Hope you have a great day!
