No - I turned 50 this last month. hard (for me) to believe, but there you have it. the days in 1995 (I think) when some of us first came online together feel like several lifetimes past, not just half of one.
Winston - my oldest is a high school junior, and we too are now preparing to let go. In our case he will almost certainly be leaving the country which is quite tough to consider...good luck with your double bet!

I wager AC is a grandpapa at this point!

Happy belated! I get my half-century next year, but I agree on all fronts that I neither feel remotely old enough to be that old AND that '95 seems a million years ago.

Thanks Bhel, good luck to you too. The move to another country will be a added challenge but perhaps give you the opportunity to go and visit.

I can't recall what year I joined The Fray. I recall that they sent me an umbrella so it was whenever it was that they were doing that.

The umbrella was probably 97, when (the late) Irving Snodgrass was secretly FrayVader. Over 20 years ago!

Thanks bhel, that sounds about right.

I just remember the first conversation I joined --- it was about the four kids in Florida who stole a stop sign and then there was a fatal car accident.

I posted to correct rubber ducky, whatever his ID was at the time I forget, when he abbreviated Arkansas AK. They were all arguing about how evil Bill Clinton was.
