    I am fab over fifty.no kids and enjoy going to rock concerts. I’m too busy being fabulous to sweat the small stuff.

  • LouAnn Angelo Bramante

    I got 9 out of the 15. At 56, I am quite aware of my age and am okay with it but like to look good and feel good – thus I enjoy checking out the new creams and lotions. So, I consider myself more self-confident than undecided. However, because I don’t have children, I didn’t think I could factor (#10) in the survey for myself. What I don’t do, are numbers 5 (beyond checking up on husband); 6 (can work my smartphone fine); 9 (no need to sneak wine at my age); 11 (really don’t know who North West is, where Northwest is yes); and 15 (not a big Beach Boys fan so I don’t blast Wouldn’t It Be Nice, I do blast other songs from the past).

    About time .76 all drs comment and say what is your secret? LOL

  • Deb Hanson

    I don’t do many of those things, but I do know many young women who do so I don’t know if it’s really an “50 and Old” indicator.

  • 9 – My age says I’m 52 but I still feel the same as I did in my 20’s. My body just keeps reminding me that I’m 52.

  • oh, puleeze

  • ctgal

    Only 1 applied to me! And that makes me on the fence? No, I think that just makes me not obsessed with myself and makes me feeling great about me, regardless of all the “stuff” that’s happening to me.

  • You got me at TV boyfriend..and then a whole lot more. Fun post! 😉

    • Hi Jeanne,

      Who is your TV boyfriend. 🙂

      Mine is British actor Martin Clunes. I “met” him through a show called “Doc Martin,” which ran 6 seasons and was wildly popular in the UK. I watched every episode, practically back-to-back a few weekends ago and now I miss Martin!

      Fondly,
      Geri
