Jon Bon Jovi and I Turned 50 Today

March 2nd, 2012 . by economistmom

I was born on March 2, 1962, and so was Jon Bon Jovi. He proclaims that he’s “not old, just older”–and “older” comes across in a decidedly positive way through him. I liked this Examiner story about Bon Jovi’s 50th birthday, and the perspective on his now-eligibility for membership in a certain organization:

The enduring force behind one of music’s most successful bands turns the big 5-0; Fabulous Fifty, the number that need not be named or spoken too loudly; and, the one that entitles him to membership in an organization that surely must make the man bristle: the AARP (American Association of Retired People).

Memo to the AARP and Jovi Nation fandom everywhere: this blue-eyed Adonis is nowhere near retiring, so don’t be on the lookout for his membership kit!

So let me just say I hope “ditto” applies to me, too, even though I’m obviously not a “blue-eyed Adonis.”  And it’s my birthday, so I won’t blog about fiscal policy today if I don’t want to.  ;)

    I don’t know if “ditto” is a word that you want to use these days, what with Rush’s problems. Anyhow, I hope you and Bon Jovi had a very Happy 50th!

    Happy Birthday!

    This may be a couple days late, but let the good times continue.

    Happy (belated) Birthday, Diane.

    And I’ll try to avoid thinking of Bon Jovi’s music. Ooph, what crap. It was your birthday, so you are forgiven.
