Fifty B4 Fifty


Fifty B4 Fifty is about completing 50 activities/task up to and during my 50th year.  Most of the activities are new to me.  I am 50 in July 2018 and I know the next couple of years are going to pass very quickly.

I have split my activities into five categories.  You might think the names of my categories are a bit strange but I thought it would be fun for the first letter of each category to spell the word FIFTY  Each time I complete one of my activities I will write a post and there will be a link to on this page to the post.
