Monday Mystery - Discover my age

This week I have a birthday. So the mystery is to figure out how old I am. Have a cupcake while you're reading and solving the mystery! 

Here are the clues: 

I married a month before my 21st birthday.

My older brother is 17 months older than me.

My younger brother is 4 years younger than me and just celebrated a monumental birthday.(Or so he thinks)

The year I was born, Toyota and Datsun cars went on sale in U.S. and Elvis Presley was inducted into the army.


My  husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary with an Alaskan cruise in 2009.

Wham-o introduced the Hula Hoop

Popular films were Bridge of the River Kwai and Vertigo

Two people born in the same year were Tanya Tucker and Jamie Lee Curtis.

So how old am I?

You can use mathematics or you can google to find the answer!

I'll pick one lucky answer to win a prize.  Something you'll learn about me(Much to my husband's disdain), I like to give gifts, so, what better time than on my birthday!

54? (either that or I'm really bad at math). Happy Birthday Paty!

I have a birthday this week too--what fun!

MK, We'll have to cyber-celebrate together! (I'm not going to say if you're right or wrong until more people chime in)

This post is so cute, Paty. Made me smile. I'm not going to give away the answer except to say, you're four years younger than me. Happy birthday! :)

Paty Jager said...

Thanks, Devon! And you've given me yet another clue. ;)

Well, I'd say you are four years older than me. I'm with your brother on monumental birthdays this year. Both hubby and I will hit the big 'OH' and I'm not talking about Hawaii 5-OH!

Lauri, I put the Elvis reference in just for you! ;) Figured it was a dead give-away to an Elvis fan.

Lauri said...

And that's exactly how I knew how old you are. ;) Thanks for being so thoughtful. LOL.

I think you are five years older than me, but then I suck at math. ; )

Happy, happy birthday to you, today!

Paty Jager said...

Ha! Thanks, Danita! So will you be only four years younger in two weeks??

My birthday gift goes to MK. And I am 54 today!
