For those Loyal Readers who have been living for the past few months in one of the illegitimate voting machines that created the fake presidency of Joe Biden, you may not be aware of a new obsession sweeping the country: Wordle.

Covid Visits A Therapist

January 19, 2022


What brings you here today? I’m doubting myself. I’m supposed to be a Big Deal Pandemic. I did everything right. I came at a time when people were always travelling all over the planet. I snuck in easily from another country and took everyone by surprise. I kept changing, so everyone kept getting confused. I […]

Death and Other Avoidable Things

January 5, 2022


Unlike taxes, the GOP, racial injustice and idiotic comments on neighborhood listservs, Death does appear to have a cure. Well, not actually a cure, but a possible delay. Death procrastinators can take heart that wills, farewells and the honoring of IOUs may be able to be put off indefinitely, if we play our cards right. […]

2021 Was Certifiable

January 3, 2022


Life in the Boomer Lane fully intended to do a comical look at the major events of 2021. But, upon perusing the aforementioned major events, she realized that most of them had two completely different meanings.

Life in the Boomer Lane has been in a six-week whirlwind of travel, involving Brussels, Florida, and the homes of various humans who she gave birth to, as well as the humans they, in turn, gave birth to.

The Year Everyone’s Hair Fell Out

November 17, 2021


Life in the Boomer Lane has been getting used to her hair not only falling out, but flying across rooms and nestling in surprising places. She has noted hair inside freshly washed laundry, hair clinging to furniture, and hair doing a balletic freefall onto laptop keys as she types this blog post. While she considered […]

November 9, 2021


Life in the Boomer Lane and Now Husband have just returned from a week in Brussels. They stayed with close friends who live there part time, and they had a great week. One of the highlights of the week was to visit the Museum of Waterloo, the Belgian town in which Napoleon met the end […]

Your Questions Answered

October 27, 2021


It’s tough to write about nipples, when the world continues to careen toward its end. Life in the Boomer Lane had fully intended to devote herself to just that (nipple talk), but the Forces of Darkness kept obscuring her vision. Not that nipples aren’t important, mind you. LBL will simply put nipples aside for the […]

Burning the House Down

October 7, 2021


Life in the Boomer Lane has been around for a long time, so long that she remembers when everyone listened to the same news and either agreed or disagreed. It’s a crazy thought now, the idea of our choices being limited to either agreeing or disagreeing. Now, we are on a different path. It’s like […]
