What does the #55 mean to you?




  • A common speed limit is 55 MPH.
  • Those turning 55 this year, were born in 1955!
  • Hancock Fabrics has 15% Discount on the First Wednesday of each month for those 55 and older!
  • Those having at least 30 years of service AND 55 years old can retire where I work! hmmmmm -- I have more than that!
  • It was Deer Season Opening 55 years ago today in Columbus, Texas.
  • My Mom and Dad were very busy 55 years ago today (although Dad wanted to be hunting).
  • Famous people born in 1955 -- John Grisham, Kevin Costner, Reba McEntire, Connie Sellecca, Debra Winger, Bruce Willis......
  • Did I mention Hancock Fabrics 15% Discount for 55 and older, 1st Wednesday of each month?
  • Bottom Line -- I will have more disposible fabric income starting today -- especially if I can find more Senior Discounts! Don't get me wrong, I am not so much a tight-wad, as much as I am trying to make the best of this milestone day.

Happy Birthday! Here is another Hancocks Fabric fact. Hancocks is only 53 years old. My sister just won a $53 gift card from Hancocks. I'm so jealous. Enjoy your extra buying power.
