I'm not sure why.
They decided that they were not going to let it slip by quietly and unnoticed.
Fanfare was in order.
Age means nothing to me, it truly doesn't. I'm sure when I was a kid, fifty was old, like a dinosaur old but it isn't anymore.
I don't feel old. I can out run people half my age, I am hyper and nuts and I think young. This substantial birthday was just another birthday but it was fantastic to have a party, I haven't had one in years and years and I loved every second of it. I loved that they would think of doing such a thing and I loved even more that Sally would invite Jakie and the fact that Jakie flew all the way from Israel to celebrate with us.
With the exception of cousins who mean the world to me, we were all together for a happy occasion and it was great fun. It was an afternoon event so that the kiddos could have fun too and so that we could make the most of the weather.
