HNT: Half(century) Naked Tom

It’s been a while since I’ve done an HNT, and since I’ve been on a rant all week long (rage, rage against the dying of the light, and all that), it seems like a good time to post some pictures of what a shriveled, dried-up, half century old guy looks like.

The first one is me working out in my little home gym area.

Yes, I’m really 50.

No, I’m not wearing a sweater.

Believe me, I’ve earned every single one of those grey hairs.

I’m not exercising as intensely as I did last summer, but I do get about 20 to 40 minutes a day of strength training, and several times a week I’m doing the cardio thing. I was killing my legs and knees on the treadmill at the local gym, but now that the weather has warmed up, I’m doing the bike thing. I’ve got this nice 5 mile route that’s mostly flat – a rarity in New England – so I work at improving my time each time I’m out. Last year I was using my Cannondale road bike. This year I’m trying it on my hybrid for a little more of a workout.

Even though I just threw a bash for Mrs. Edge, who is just a few weeks older than I, we’re not doing anything special for my birthday. I’ve eaten enough cake and burgers in the past week to last me for a while. Besides, I told her that everybody has a party on the decade mark. Me, I’d rather have a nice event at, say, 53. It’s a prime number, after all.

Okay, I’m off to my nude shuffleboard lessons.

  4. I admire a guy who looks forward to celebrating his 53rd birthday for prime number reasons. I hope I look as fit as you when I hit the 50 mark.

    Happy birthday and HHNT!

    As I said, here’s to the Fucking Fifties… and naked pics of hairy men (of which I am a fan). Nude shuffleboard, eh, not so much.

    And even though you’re not celebrating officially, I wish you a very happy, very naked Birthday.

    No he’s not, Deb. This is the Edge of Vanilla. We’re not quite the dark side, we’re more like the gateway to the dark side.

    Ms Bon – I missed 3 out of 3 criteria for you. 😦
    I’ll try to get those nude shuffleboard pics ASAP for you.
