July 15, 2017

Life in the Boomer Lane has always wished that she could secretly video any number of times that she has been in cars with groups of women.  These video-worthy events are usually precipitated by being lost,  concern about potentially getting lost, inability to find where one’s car is parked, confusion about how to exit parking […]

    Life in the Boomer Lane has a close friend who picks atypical places for her normal life events. She fell in love with someone who was living in her basement, then married him in the winner’s circle at Monmouth racetrack. Not to be outdone by these diversions from the norm, she has just […]

December 2, 2016

Back in the fall of 1973, Life in the Boomer Lane met Miki, a fellow special ed teacher. Miki was tall. Her legs started at her ankles and ended at LBL’s neck. Her life experiences were as different from LBL’s as could possibly be. There were a lot of reasons why they connected. But the […]

Life in the Boomer Lane has been thinking a lot about friendship, lately. She has written about friendship and friends in many blog posts.

  A friend of Life in the Boomer Lane brought up a very serious issue at their breakfast out, the other day.

For the last couple days, Life in the Boomer Lane’s carton-infested attic has been occupied not with a contractor, but with a house guest.  The aforementioned houseguest is actually a dear friend, who we shall call Joyce, because that is her name.

I’ve just returned from five days in Florida, visiting two dear friends, Joyce and Jean.  These women were also my co-authors for the two books we wrote about life after 50.
