50!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Posted by castelnuovo on Monday, October 16, 2017 10:44 PM

I turned fifty years old!!!!! Holly molly, I made it to the top....yeah, its downhill from here...but....but...but....50 is the new 35 so....Smile But half a sentury still sounds like a lot. Of course, driving 50km in a red Corvette is not that much but if you run it, its a diferent story Smile. And I think I run quite a bit of it. Growing up was, looking back, a cruise control, not in a Ferrari but I was happy in a Fiat 650, if you know what I mean. There were quite a few off roading along the way, times when I wish I had a jeep, or better yet, a tank with a big ass gun Smile.

Either way, I thought to tell and ask:

Where have you been 10 yrs ago, where are you now and where do you see yourself 10 yrs down the road.

For me, I was working in a gym that was facing bancrupcy, now that was a downhill. So I went back to school and got a physio degree.

Now I happily work, have 2 kids and a beautiful wife (no, I won't show you a picture) Smile

10 yrs down the road I think I will still work in a health care system, maybe a different ward.

Cheers...Toast

10 years ago....

I was back in flight school, working on my instrument rating (achieved in Nov '07), then went on to get my multi-engine/commercial with instrument ticket (finished in April '08). Lovin life...had an "in" with a regional airline...the furture looked bright!

Well...just before I finished my ratings, the "bottom" dropped out and there was no way I was getting a pilot job...everybody was getting laid off, and a low time guy just couldn't compete in the market. Hundreds of resumes, and applications at every business in town led to absolutely nothing but a very bad time in my life. Later in '08, my brother started a seal coating company (sealing asphalt driveways/parking lots), so I worked with him...part time. Also managed to get a little bit of side work....just barely enough to get by (thank God I'm good at hunting...we got to eat!). 

Long story, short...my bro sold the company...the buyer failed and we repo'ed the company and now it is mine. This was my second year as owner and it has been alright....but...the sky is calling me! I stashed a bunch of cash this work season and in a few weeks, when my last job is done for the season, I'm going back to get current/proficient and work on my single engine/commercial add-on....so that 10 years from now, when someone asks what I do for a living, I can say "I'm a pilot!"

Happy birthday!!!

 

side note....four years ago, on this very day (about an hour from now, as I type this), I was digging a hole, under the pine tree in my yard, to bury my dog. The best friend I ever had. Now my eyes are getting sweaty...I miss that guy, so bad.

Ten years ago : I was working at a "fly by night" trucking company ( had been there since 2002 )  They had just hired a new chase driver. her job was to pick up the truck driver's after they had delivered the truck's to the dealership's or new owner's.

SHE WAS CUTE!!!!!!!   So me being me...... I sexually harassed her...... and she took ME out on a date! We have been married for ten years (March 20 2007) and she has been feeding me ever since! (Big mistake..... she will NEVER get rid of me now.)

Ten year's from now: We have been working like crazy to build our new home and it should be all done( and paid for ) by 2027.

This include's the improvement's to the lot as well ( she want's a big  pond and guess who get's to dig that hole........)

I turned 50 eleven years ago. I was (am) married, my child was 16 and I was working full time.

Today I am married, my child is 27 and I'm working about 3/4 full time.

Ten years from now I'll be retired/ independent consultant, hopefully still married.

My advice to you at fifty is to get ready to have a body that doesn't automatically recover quickly from fatigue and stress and you can't take it for granted any more.

But the mind continues to improve, example being all of the sharp 60 and more plus somethings active here.

Happy Birthday HAPPY 50th BIRTHDAY!! Happy Birthday

 

Past 10 years:

Fast paced and exciting...military, became a firefighter/paramedic and married. My wife and I lived in Billings, Montana for 4 years and then bought land/built new home just outside Columbia Falls, Montana just this past year. Currently we are both working full time(She is a school teacher) and going to school. My wife is working on her Masters in education and I am working toward a BS in Fire Science and Management.

Next 10 years:

For the both of us to be in the career position we are working towards. I would like to be the Captain of my own station house, and my wife would like to be a principal. Hopefully a couple of kids, and to enjoy them and life in general. We both invest heavily in our retirement plans so the plan is to be retired by 56-58 y/o. As for this great hobby....to be very good at building kits and accompanying them with a great diorama base/scene.

10 years ago...life good, married, happy, working full time.

Now...life getting back on track after 3 heart attacks and an ICD implant 7 years ago, and wifemate's passing 3 years ago. Semi-retired on disability.  Hobbies of modeling, gold prospecting, metal detecting to fill the hours.  Wasn't looking for a relationship, but may be getting back with the ex, 35 years after we split.  Working on that, have to see where it goes, but are comfortable with each other.

10 years from now...  Just hope to still be around, figure already 7 years past my experiation date.

Happy Birthday  Congrats on turning 50!

10 years ago: Working for the County as a counselor for folks with diagnosed mental illness.  Married for 14 years, and happy to be so.

Now:  Still working for the County, but the State didn't like my degree, so they moved to Quality Assurance.  Now I check to make sure the other counselors are doing what they are supposed to be doing.  The job is OK, but my current boss is the best, so I am pretty content.  Married for 24 years, and very happy to be so.  1 year of model building under my belt, and loving it.  

Next 10 years: Pay off the mortgage, retire, and hopefully get way more bench time.  Eyesight is getting worst every year, and physical issues keep cropping up, so I hope to be healthy enough to enjoy the free time.

Ten years ago, I was getting ready to move my family from Fort Knox and prepping for an 18 month deployment to Iraq followed by retirement from the Army upon return.

I retired four years later right on schedule in 2011 and settled into retired life.

A year later, after getting bored at home, on whim, I applied for a job at a GE factory. It was fun, assembling some pieces parts for a refrigerator door. I actually turned 50 at work and recently received my 5 year award.

Within my first few years here, I went from a minor subassembly job to being in charge of door installation and having to deal with over 1100 doors a night. Quality, correct type, color, assembly, installation are all daily headaches.

The company tried to get me to take a higher level position, but I declined each time.

Ten years from now I assume I will go back to being retired. My retirement pay gives me quite a comfortable income and my youngest child will be out of college by then.

Hi Castlenuovo ;

 You got it . Even if I could post Late Wifey's photo I won't . No sense getting everyone riled up , right ? Ten years ago I had a house and wife . Now she's in Heaven , I hope . And the house is gone . Living with extended family .

 Ten years before that , I was part owner in a marina and full owner of two businesses . Great times had there . Live-aboard boating was very relaxing .

 Now I have old clients/friends coming back for more of my work . What will ten years up be like ? God willing ,  my mind will be clear , Body will still work enough to be independent . And maybe I'll get to build more of my own stuff .

 I hope to be on the steps of the Admin Bldg at Texas A&M at 125 .To give a speech to the young " Life Science " students . What about ? What life was really like in 1943 !

 See , Dreaming keeps one young and possibly silly too ! Aw , heck , why Not !

This looks like a fun thread, especially when we read it ten years from now.

I turn 50 next year.

10 years ago, I was working 20 hour days as a large scale construction project manager and structural inspector and was on the road 300 days a year.  Never saw my family much, was 30 pounds overweight, and lived on stress.  I was 40 but looking and feeling 60.

Now, I got a job a few years ago through a good friend as a Mechanical Engineer/Industrial Designer and love the work and the people I work with.  I am now home every night and am enjoying all the time I missed with my wonderful wife.  We celebrate our 25th next June with hopefully a cruise.  The house got paid off in March, and I lost 30 pounds doing a lifestyle fitness change.  I enjoy running, soccer golf, biking, and chasing squirrels with my dog.  I am now going on 50 but look and feel 30.  I also am now back to getting to build models, both at home, and at work!

10 years from now, I will still be working and keeping up on the latest in engineered materials and 3D design and test methods for industrial design.  Maybe hope to freelance.  Also plan to do a lot of model building.  My wife and I hope to travel.  I did a lot in my last job, but never saw anything but airports, mudd, steel, and blue porta pottys.  This time, I would like to actually see some of those places I been to but without the stress.

10 years after that, I may actually plan to mature a bit.

What a great thread!  First off, happy birthday Castle!  I'm not too far behind you there.  I'm 47 now.  

Let's see...10 years ago I was Senior CAD Drafter in my company's CAD Dept.  My oldest girl was 4 and my youngest one was 6 months old.  I was working lots of overtime and my youngest daughter used to cry when my wife handed her to me.  LOL!!!

Flash forward ten years and now I'm in my new department doing 3D solid modeling in the Design Department.  I finished my Engineering degree a few months ago so I'm hoping to make the move to a Project Engineer in the Engineering Dept by next year.

Ten years from now, my oldest will be out of college and my youngest will probably be a Junior.  God willing, my wife and I will be doing some traveling.  I'm hoping by then, I'll be a sernior level engineer and my wife will have gone back to work after staying home with the kids.  The sad part is that, at that point, our dog won't be with us anymore.  I am NOT looking forward to that.

Happy birthday Castle!  

I also turned 50 earlier this year, so I know what you are talking about.

Ten years ago ... I had a 1-yr-old daughter and a 15-yr-old son, was happily married, and working in a job that I really enjoyed (software development for a clinical trial company).  I was building consistently and I was soon to be relieved that the Dennis Franchione mistake at Texas A&M football was soon to be done.  I was still in the process of re-stocking my stash after a shelving incident took out many of my builds, and the wife graciously told me I could get them to build again some day.

Now ... my son is now married and has his own place north of Austin, TX, and my daughter is in sixth grade, my wife and I remain happily married ... and I am staring at being out of work for two years now.  Doing a lot of software training in an attempt to modernize some of my skill set, feeling a lot like a math teacher these days as I spend lots of time with my daughter in her pre-AP math class work - I refuse to let her live down to the stereotype that girls are no good at math (wife is an accountant, so clearly the stereotype is wrong).  Have some hope that the Aggies will some day (a) beat Alabama, (b) beat Louisiana State, (c) win the SEC, and (d) win a national championship for the first time since Adolf Hitler was getting ready to try to conquer the world.

In 10 years ... my daughter should be nearing completion of her college education, probably at Texas A&M, I expect to have received another title (that being grand-father), I expect that I will still be working (if I am STILL looking for work, then something is clearly not working for me), I hope to remain happily married, I will have paid off the mortgage and will be, as Dave Ramsey says, living like no one else.  I will still have a stash to work with, but by then I will also have allowed the word 'retirement' into my vocabulary and will likely be thinking about that phase of my life.  I also, sadly, will likely have said good-bye to my father (currently 79 and not in the best of health) but I hope that won't be the case.

For the past 45 years I have been an architect. When i started, all drawings were done by hand and the specifications were written on a pad of paper and handed to a secretary to type on  a typewriter. When I retired three years ago all drawings were produced in a computer, models were created on a computer and specifications were developed by the architects on a computer. Secretaries no longer existed.

The best years in my life and my wife's life are in front of us. We are healthy and take no meds because we actively exercise. I go to TRX class twice a week and go to speed cycling twice a week. Very few things can beat the feeling of endorphins flowing through the body after an intense round of exercise.!  JUST DO IT!!!!!

Let me start with a belated Happy Birthday!

Ten years ago--it certainly doesn't seem like it-- I was at Camp Bullis attending CMAST (Combat Medic Advance Skills Training) in preparation for my National Guard Brigade deploying for OIF/OEF. The years that have followed have seen my share of grief, pain and frustration. Too much to put into a post, and more than anyone wants to read about.

Ten years from now, I honestly have no idea where I will be. I had all but given up being a lawyer (yes, I was a medic in the Army and an attorney as a civilian), and found a job I enjoyed, only to have the rug pulled out from under me when we closed. That was in July. I am working again trying to establish a practice, but it is slow going. At 51, I think I am too old to look at changing careers too much more, but I haven't yet resigned myself to being a lawyer until retirement.

On the other hand, one thing I wanted to do in the military was jump out of airplanes. Without going into a long explanation, it almost happened three times, but I never got to jump school. So, within the year or so, I want to get into good enough shape and save up enough money to do this:

10 Years Ago,

I was a succsseful Master Sushi Chef trained by the student of the official Sushi Chef of the Empreor of Japan.  I worked at the Bertram Inn and Conference Center in Aurora, Ohio for Bert and Iris Wolstein.  I made $110,000.00 a year. 

I quit that job and took a chance with a client of mine to open up my own business.  Mrs. Toshi and I built in ground swimming pools as General Contractors.  Our business was called; “Allan’s All American Services”.  We made $150,00.00 in our first year.  Our second year we were over $250,000.00.  My forecast for our third year was over a million dollars.  My son was eighteen years old and my daughter was thirteen.  

Then the economy tanked in ‘08 and we lost the business.  That didn‘t stop me from providing for my family.  In four weeks, during this difficult time, I was a butcher, landscaper, and I worked for Walmart as a third shift shelf stocker.  All the while I still opened pools and closed pools although I did not build pools anymore.  I was a very busy individual.  

I then took a job at a factory delivering ink to box making machines.  On the afternoon of 5/5/10 I got hit by 250lbs. to 300lbs. of boards on my left side and fell on the concrete on my right side and was in a coma.  I almost died.  I was life flighted to Metro Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio.  I had TBI or Traumatic Brain Injury.  I was and still am in therapy since then.  I see a plethora of doctors, a Neurologist, Psychologist, Psychiatrist, and a PM&R (Pain Medication & Relief) doctors.  

During this time, Mrs. Toshi took care of me while my now grown children successfully attended (My son) Youngstown State University as a Engineer  and (My Daughter) attended Kent State University as a Photographer.  They both graduated and are now on their own.  I now am a proud grandfather of two grandson‘s from my son.  My oldest grandson attends preschool and we watch my youngest grandson.  

One day during physical therapy, a therapist purchased for me a Testors 1/72 F4U Corsair model kit.  I refused and refused to build it.  I was finally convinced into building it. The therapist said if I didn’t like building the kit I didn’t have to finish it and they would never ask me to do it again.  Well, first off, one of my childhood favorite shows was “Baa Baa Blcksheep”.  Second, the Corsair was my favorite aircraft of all time.  So I finally built it.  

During this point in therapy I was encouraged to join a model forum called FSM Forums.  My avatar became my first therapy build of which was the Corsair, I finally completed after refusing to waste my time building it!  I hated the forum as well as my building of model aircrafts at first.  I then built my first WIP, a Revell 1/48 P-61 Black Widow.  That was it!!! I was hooked!!!  Now here I am almost three years later finishing up on another WIP, a 1974 sealed Monogram 1/48 P-61 Black Widow.  I turn fifty in a few weeks, on November 15, 2017.  Several weeks ago, Mrs. Toshi had a 7mm brain tumor removed from her frontal lobe area.  The table has turned on me.  I now care for Mrs. Toshi.  She now goes to Proton Radiation treatment.

In the next 10 Years 

We hope to buy a big huge home and have our children and grandchildren all living together in our home.  I would like to start a non-pfofit organization for TBI patients.  From that point on, we can only dream of what great things can happen as long as we stay positive in life!  To live life to its fullest  as life is too short to take for granted.

Mr. and Mrs. Allan Toshio Miura, Jr.

 

Retired due to work related injury

Married to the most caring, loving, understanding, and beautiful wife in the world.  Mrs. Toshi

 

ON THE BENCH:

Revell B-17G Flying Fortress 

NEXT BUILD:

Mrs. Toshi just purchased for me a Tamiya 1/48 Ki-61 via eBay, when it arrives, as always, I’ll do a WIP.  Thanks to M.Brindos and Model Maniac for the heads up and the inspiration in obtaining this kit for my next build.

10 years ago I was also about 50 yrs old and drunkedly watching my marriage and life fall apart.

Today, 10 yrs later I am recently happily re-married and literally today travelling about China with my wife. Health is better than 10 yrs ago, so is everything else.

I climbed the Great Wall last week. 10 yrs ago I'd have probably fallen off it. :)

It doesn't always get worse.

Dunno about 10 yrs from now. I can get in trouble when I think about 10 hours from now. :)

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAYBalloons.

 I turned 49 in August, I can remember 10 years ago but don't want to say much other than I was 7yrs into my present marriage. Still married. Odd I remember great detail from that long ago but I can't remember what I did yesterday.

I have no idea what the next half of my life will bring however I'm sure as before I will overcome. I like to call myself an "over motivated under achiever".

If ya happen to see any major roadblocks or forks wwould ya be so kind as to relay the information back, I'm only about 8mo behind ya. Odd ramblings from a cluttered mind, HAPPY 50th Castlenouvo.

I have already given her a big hug and told her thank you for everything she’s done for me!  In turn, she gave me a hug and congratulated me on a job well done.  The therapy center I went to is called Mentis in Stow, Ohio.  It’s right next to Hobby Lobby.  

At first when I arrived at Mentis, I couldn’t even read.  They taught me to read and write again.  That’s when they gave me the Testors Corsair and pulled up a screen on the computer with all the different model forums to choose from.  We both chose the first one of which was FSM.  That’s how I became a member of this wonderful forum.
