I‘m not a fan of walking. I know how to walk, and I walk when it’s necessary. Some years ago, I walked 60 miles in three days in order to raise money for breast cancer research. I walked in honor of a close friend who died in her forties of the disease. I walk 1.5 […]

Life in the Boomer Lane is about to say something positive about something that is happening in Russia. Contrary to what some readers may believe at this point, Donald Trump, Former Guy and Loyal Russian Supporter, had nothing to do with this post. Russia, for all it’s megalomaniacal intrusions into the US presidential election and […]

Life in the Boomer Lane will begin with an explanation to Loyal Readers. This post is not a follow up to the last post about LBL’s gym attendance. LBL’s going to the gym has never, in all the decades that have gone on, resulted in her being faster, or tougher, although she does seem to […]

Life in the Boomer Lane has been going to the gym faithfully for a long time. She joined her first gym just about 48 years ago. When she came home and showed Then Husband her shiny new gym membership card, his response was “Gyms make money from people like you.” Perplexed, she asked him to […]

Yesterday was the annual neighborhood yard sale. Life in the Boomer Lane was both organizer and participant. The weather was what the DC area rarely provides: temperatures in the high 80s, full sun, and no humidity. The starting time was 8 AM. The first looker arrived at 6:45.

For a fair number of years, Life in the Boomer Lane has had someone come into her house every two weeks (or maybe three or four) and clean. Her cleaning person was reliable, efficient, and an absolute pleasure to be around. When COVID hit, that stopped. Since LBL no longer has children running all over […]

Freeganism

A Loyal Reader recently called Life in the Boomer Lane’s attention to a movement called Freeganism. Freeganism, she found out, is an ideology of limited participation in the conventional economy and minimal consumption of resources, particularly through recovering wasted goods like food. The word “freegan” is derived from both “free” and “vegan,” although LBL realizes […]

A close friend of Life in the Boomer Lane came back to the DC area to celebrate her birthday with her daughter. Her daughter asked her how she wanted to celebrate and she said she wanted to do a driving tour of all of the different places she had lived in the area. The journey […]

Having now been fully vaccinated (Note to Readers: Life in the Boomer Lane experienced absolutely no side effects from the second vaccine. It was a non-event, leading her to believe that it was a fake vaccine created by the same folks who brought you pizza parlors and child molestation), she can now get on with […]
