Happy 50th Birthday, Margaret USA!

When we celebrated the 50th birthday of our sometime blogger, Summa – a Scotsman now resident in Australia – I promised, solemnly, that I would enter the date of Margaret USA’s 50th birthday in my diary to remind me to post a Birthday thread for Margaret – and so today, 13 June being that landmark birthday,  let the jokes roll in along with the birthday greetings.  Margaret isn’t a regular “regular” here but she does pop in from time to time… and, anyway, a promise is a promise! 

Allow me, then, to be the first on the blog to wish you, Margaret, a very VERY happy 50th birthday.  Enjoy! 

11/12 – Happy 50th Birthday Summa!

Our Blogger, Summa, Scots-born resident of sunny Australia, celebrates his 50th birthday today – in not-so-sunny Glasgow!  He’s up from down under, so to speak, for the next few weeks,

Yesterday, we chatted briefly after Mass.  Mrs Summa warned that the grey hairs would soon show, now that hubby has reached this landmark birthday. She, being a glamorous gal-about-town, isn’t too crazy at the prospect. 

Anyway, we thought we would seek some advice for the Birthday Boy from those older and wiser… Here’s what one Coffin Dodger (below) had to say to mark the occasion…

Not to worry you, Summa, but take a look at the following conversation between 3 ladies overheard talking about how they feel on reaching their 50th year…

The first lady said “There are times I find myself with the milk jug in my hand, and the fridge door open, but I can’t figure out if I was taking it out, putting it back or pouring myself a glass.”

The second lady answered “Yes sometimes I’m at the foot of the stairs and I don’t remember if I was going up or just came down.”

The third friend responded “Well, thankfully I don’t have that yet, knock on wood.” As she knocked on the table, she looked around and said “Oh, someone’s at the door, I’ll get it!”


And finally, from all of us here at Catholic Truth…

Have a wonderful day!
