January 6, 2014

27

Life in the Boomer Lane attended a presentation yesterday evening, given by a candidate running for county board.  She did this because Now Husband is out-of-town and Downton Abbey didn’t start until 9PM and so she would be home on time. She also believed there existed a slight possibility that she might have understood enough […]

Those of you who enjoy reading about fun travel and adventure have, no doubt, heard of the antics of the Donner Party, a California Trail wagon train of eighty-one American pioneers who in 1846 found themselves trapped by snow in the Sierra Nevada.

My friend Susan, when she isn’t having dates with men who wear antlers or slippers out to dine, goes to weddings. Susan attends more weddings than a bag of rice. After she finished attending the weddings of her countless friends, she soon began attending the second weddings of some of them. Even while that round […]

In the ongoing spins of the Great Wheel of Life, Judy is usually too short to reach the lever. She has noticed, however, that the wheel keeps spinning without her. This is either tragic or hilarious, depending on her frame of mind at the moment or on her audience. However it plays out, the finest […]

The circumstances of Life in the Boomer Lane’s jet set lifestyle involved Now Husband making a reservation at a hotel near the Newark Airport, picking her up at the airport, and driving to the hotel.

Having had such a swell time with my recent trip to the ER, I decided to arrange for another life threatening adventure. Since I had been caring for my one-and-a-half year old and three-and-a-half year old grandsons, all scary and deadly items had been safely stored away.  So I had to get creative. Calling upon […]

The other night, Life in the Boomer Lane came perilously close to joining her ancestors in the Big Shtetl in the Sky. The events were as follows: While having a conversation with her daughter, a virus and annoying cough she has been dealing with all week triggers a severe asthmatic reaction, resulting in LBL’s inability […]

Breaking Bad: The Belt Buckle Version

What with all the recent antics involving Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney and the rise in women being encouraged to eat their placentas after giving birth, I totally forgot about one of the most memorable airport experiences I had on this most recent trip to Turkey. It occurred on the first leg of my journey, at […]

Getting old is no laughing matter, which is why it is so much fun making jokes about old people.  Take driving, for example.  As long as one isn’t driving in the same town as an old person, one can get a real chuckle out of the story of 86-year-old Margaret Lazor who drove her station wagon […]
