First I want to deal with worries: What will 60 be like? Will my life force drain away? Will I look like a hag? Will I be poor? Some research is in order.
One advantage of being born at the end of the Baby Boom is seeing one's age-related concerns chewed over in the media long before one reaches the age in question. For instance, we frequently read that "60 is the new 40." That being the case, I can get an idea of what to expect by examining some old 40s. Below are some women who turned 40 in the 50s or 60s.
The City of the Dead. She appears to be pretty tough.
The Phantom Planet. Coleen is holding up pretty well.
KTBC-TV/7, a move that would eventually make the Johnsons millionaires.
OK, this is what I can expect at 60. What's next?
