I just turned 25 on January 20. I enjoy being a younger quilter, it means being spoiled by the grandmas in the quilt shop who have kids/grands who don't sew. They all mooned over the birthday blocks today when I took them in to match borders/sashing. They helped me find the perfect fabrics. (pics to follow momentarily)

Happy birthday, Mary and Kelly!

Jennifer - On a side note... You're now number SEVEN of people I know born on 18 Feb. Once upon a time, 13 years ago on 18 Feb, my neighbor called my dad to come take care of their pets while she and her husband went to the hosptial because she was in labor with her first kid. My younger brother told the guys at the bus stop, and one of them whined "I hope she's not born today! Today's my birthday! Everyone has my birthday!" Since it was also my brother's birthday, but another one of the guys pipped up and said "Today's my birthday, too!"

I'm 20, so DragonGoddess, you're not the youngest, neenerneener! :)

Well I guess it's my turn to add my age. I get to go into the 20's age group for a few more months. I am 29 until June 2.

My sister-in-law and husband nearly had breakdowns when they turned 30. They thought they were getting so old. My DH turned 35 this year and keeps joking about how decrepid he is. I can't wait really. Not at all worried about saying I am 30. I will just be more distinguished. I still look really young. I get carded still for every stinken thing.

Oh and Happy Birthday to all of our February birthdays.

Your chronological age is no big deal, it's your state of mind, health & attitude that count. I have an 88 year old girlfriend that can run circles around me!
I'm anxious for medicare too. Our ins prem for my husband & I just went up to $818 a month and that's with a $2000 deductable, that's almost $10,000 a year....it's sickening. We can't afford any more increases...heck, we can't afford this increase.

I was 64 in December, and mighty glad to BE 64 - or ANY age, really...a few life threatening diseases sure convince you of the wonderfulness of whatever age you are! However, I remember when I was VEEEEERY young and callow, I decided that, rather than have to deduct years when I got older, I would simply have every birthday twice while I was still young ...sounded like a plan to me.....until some nosey parker, hearing I was having a birthday, asked my daughter how old I was going to be...and she said "she's going to be 24 again"...so, I scrapped the plan and decided to 'fess up' to whatever age I was! We've laughed about that every birthday since!

Yeah, looking forward to March, and Medicare. After paying the rates for Cobra ins. (from DH's employee ins) the Medicare rates look real good! We ARE as old as we feel - attitude is everything! Some friends and I went to a "pre"-estate sale (family was letting members of the Guild have first chance) of fabric, notions, blocks, tops, etc. of a 93-year old (93!!) who still lived alone at home, still was quilting - in fact there was a quilt-in-progress there that still had several needles in it. There were stacks and stacks of folded fabric and some bolts, and boxes of blocks - she must have thought she could go on and on with it all - attitude! I bought a nice little wooden floor quilt rack, and of course, lots of her fabric!

Wellllll, when I started reading the postings, I was keeping track on my fingers of where I fell in line, but heck, I had to take off my shoes. I'm part of the SIXTIES BUNCH... will be 65 in May. And I guess every peddler of insurance knows it since I'm getting all kinds of info on which company and plan I should use to supplement Medicare. MEDICARE... somehow 65 doesn't do much since I'm lucky to have as good a health as I've always had (chose great genes!) but to be going on MEDICARE>>>> ACHHHHHHHHHHH! Luckily I have good insurance through my teachers retirement so don't have to do anything but trash all the "junk mail" on this subject!

Count me in with the 50 group. Or, as I like to say, I'm 29 + 21 (where the 21 don't count, hehe).

smokiescrafter

Well I might as well join in.
The calendar says I am 65 until August.

My mind thinks I am in my 20's especially when I hear the music from then. But when my back
problem acts up, the body thinks it is probably around 90.

Haven't been 90 so don't really know that feeling yet,

Just hope I make it until then.

Happy Birthday to all February Ladies.

I am 54 (November18).
I can honestly say I would not go back to any previous age, especially my 20's.
Life for me has gotten much better with age!!!!! Can't say that for the body LOL!!!!
I just have a much younger DH, he's been holding at 39 for 16 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Count me in with the 50's group; until September when I will be 52. I got a senior discount at the gym where I work out at and hated to complain about a 20% discount. D

LOL jmcocoa! I thought that way when I was your age. Now that retirement is almost around the corner, and while I am looking forward to leaving the rat race (though I do love my job), it does feel, um, strange (for lack of a better word) to know that I'm at "that age" with so many years behind me. In other words -- don't rush it, you'll be there before you know it. <:-o>Jen

This October I will celebrate the 40th anniversary of my 21st birthday. I couldn't wait to turn 60. At this age I can get away with a lot more than I did at 50!

lol...I believe I was in denial when I somehow missed this thread of messages back in February. Now that I just finished and sent my April "Sunbonnet Susies" birthday block, I am now faced with reality: I'm the next birthday block girl - I turn 50 on May 6. FIFTY! To be honest, I feel like I'm still in my 30's on most days. My life is filled with a wonderful man, a wonderful family, and an amazing group of friends. They all keep me active and young at heart!

Judy - Fifty is only a number - we are as old as we feel - I've known women who are in their 70's who have the spirit and energy of someone much younger, and I know women in their 40's who are old before their time! My personal philosophy is that "old is about 20 years older than you are!" - and the concept of "old" keeps changing as I age.

I'll be the big 5 O in September. I don't feel my age either. Only when the kids start having their birthdays. My oldest son will be 30 this year. I don't know where the time went, he is still 7 years old in my mind

I'll be 64 in July - only one more year to the Old Age Pension (Canada) I'm going to be a great grandma in three months which is making me feel ancient.

Grandmaquilts, it is when the kids and nieces and nephews, and then the grandkids start having kids it makes you think of the time passing.
I was complaining to my Mom about my son turning 30 this year and making me feel old.

She said and I quote " how do you think I feel my daughter will be 50", so I just shut my mouth. LOL

Well, I happened to come across this thread, and was surprised at how many of us are 50 this year or will be turning 50!

I turned 50 in April, guess 1957 was a busy year. Glad that so many of you are my peers!

I'm sixty now and have to be reminded that some people think of that as elderly. In my mind, I got stuck somewhere in my forties, a very good decade to be in. Retirement? What's that?

I am a very OLD 46 year old. I wished I was like the one of you in their 70' that can get down on the floor and get back up again. Nope, I have many health issues and they age you.
