50 and Fabulous!!

Happy Monday.  Over the weekend, I celebrated my birthday with loved ones.  It was a big day too — I am now 50 years old.

So far my 50s have been fabulous and lots of fun.  Although I have had a time coming to terms with this age, I realize that age is just a number and I will continue to have fun and enjoy myself.  Well, that is my plan.

I found a list of people, items, events, and more that happened in 1967.  I realized that I am in very good company.  We are all 50 and Fabulous!

1967 was a great year for me and for many others. So, happy 50th to everyone and everything on this list.

  • The Carol Burnett Show
  • Harry Connick, Jr.
  • The Jungle Book

Before I did some research, I had no idea all of these things happened the year I was born, or that all of these people were born that year. I am sure there are a lot more, but this is a great listing for now.

It is amazing to think I have been alive for a half century now. I know what is truly important in my life — my family and friends and spending time with them.  For that I am thankful and grateful.  Blessings abound!  To the next 50!!!!
