50 is just a number, not an age.
Our neighbors, Bob and Jeanne celebrated their joint 50th birthdays with an all out bash tonight, complete with a rocking band, dancing, lots of food and drink. The venue - their own back yard, a perfect summer night with friends.
The band, Candy Foster and Shades of Blue
The young couple and guests of honor:

Dancing the night away:
Libations (and there was a keg, too - when was the last time I had beer out of a keg? That would be about 20 years ago in college.....)
The band (very loud, by the way) played until 11:00pm. We found out the police cruised through our cul-de-sac around 10:30pm, but since Bob and Jeanne had an Event Permit from the city, there was no unwanted visit. Who knew a simple permit would allow you to blare music until midnight on the weekends?
We all had a great time, and Bob and Jeanne certainly don't seem like they are a pair of 50 year olds!
To better days
