I am sure that most of us had to google it. Here is a good link to the evolution of the US flag

It had 48 when I was born.



As a teen I had a 48 star flag off an aircraft carrier hanging in my bedroom. It was huge!!

BZZZ!!! Not quite.

Alaska was admitted to the union in 1958, but the flag wasn't updated until 1959.

That makes me 51 going on 52.

Well, seeing as how I started the thread, and just passed another 'milestone' myself....

On Tuesday I became 54 years of age.

Thanks to all who posted well wishes in one thread or another.

This from one who, in high school, was voted in an unofficial poll to be 'class member least likely to live long enough to graduate'......

I was 'hell on wheels' back then.

I can remember the 1701 Act of accession, when Scotland joined England, Wales and Ireland to form the United Kingdom.

Does that make me a pre-war boomer?

Amazing the outfits some folks wore back then. January 1975 - I missed that one, and quite a few others. I was working 12-hour shifts learning how to operate a Navy Nuclear Propulsion Plant in the middle of the Idaho desert. Graduated on 15 April 1975, reported to my first submarine at Pearl Harbor in May, deployed to the Western Pacific in June. Time flies when you're having fun. Sometimes seems like yesterday, sometimes like 100 years ago.

Think I'll put a Chicago or Blood, Sweat & Tears LP on the turntable for going to sleep music.

Here it is ... just a little bit after the Act of Union.

Told you I can remember the joining, and no need for a TARDIS. But, one needs to be sure of not losing one's head.

How old am I?
Ok, let me see. I can remember the explosion at "Ripple Rock" at the inside strait (The Georges Strait that is.) My Dad and I watched film of the Suez crises on CBC in 1956, and I could read the name of Egypt. When I was very little I remember my mother explaining that Japan had "Hot rain" I thought it meant that you could make hot tea with the rain water. Everyone I grew up with can tell you where they were when John Kennedy was shot. I was late for school every time there was a manned launch from Cape Kennedy. I remember the explosion in the powder mill on the shores of the Minus Basin after the war. We lived about 12 miles as the crow flies in the country. My mother had to very firmly call my older brothers down from the trees where they could see the aftermath. I remember that Newfoundland had nickels and dimes, and twenty cent coins made out of silver. I can remember when the paper money had the images of the old King and Queen, (George the fifth, and Queen Mary.) I remember when the rag and bone man would come to visit, and he paid money for scrapp metel.

Shouldn't this be in the Contest thread? (8{)

The references to "Hot Rain" in Japan and the Suez Crisis in 1956 suggest you were born in the 1946-1950 timeframe, which would put you between 61 and 65 years old.
