Nifty Fifties

Recommended Posts

A thread for folks in their 50s, to talk about the issues that are important to 50 somethings. I have found this to be a decade of a lot of excitement and change.  I would like to compare notes w/ others. Please share your thoughts. God bless you.

50, golden oldie?   ???

Golden oldies may know the 1950's but to be 50 today, why that seems hardly middle age never mind a golden oldie. I think golden oldies are about 85 or so.

About those 1950's; age of first big fast cars and cheap gas to burn.

I was not into your kind of music in the 50's. I was just a young girl but I did like:

Johnny Mathis

Chances are

Paul Anka

Diana

The Flamingos

I only have eyes for you.

I am in my NIFTY FIFTIES and would LOVE a forum where I could fellowship with others in their 50s. I think it would be fun and enlightening.
