The Big Five Oh

Here it is people. The big 5-0. My fiftieth birthday. The official launch of a year in a kilt. Today was not too bad but I'm just going to have to get used to that number 50. It doesn't sound right. It doesn't feel right. I don't even know what 50 is supposed to feel like but I guess I thought it would feel worse than this. Doesn't feel much different than 25. Just looks twice as bad. Today I celebrated in my MacDonald SportKilt. I've discovered that the SportKilts make nice summer kilts. Light fabric, cool and easy to manage. I'll be seeing a lot of them in the coming season. Winter kilts are moved to the back of the closet. Time for some serious kilting.


  1. 50 was no big deal to me except that it was a surprise. I did not expect to live that long. My daughter says it was the biggy for her, (she was 51 this month.
    It wasn't long after my 50th birthday that I discovered I was an Oldfool something that has been proven over and over these last 23 year.
    I have learned to sew and wear kilts within the last 4 years and I often wonder what took so long.
    Keep telling us your story and a photo now and then wouldn't hurt. I

  2. Happy belated! I have a couple of years to go yet so will be following your progress for tips and pitfalls. ;)
