Time to Go Down the Basement

May 26, 2023

Decades ago, Life in the Boomer Lane was introduced to the concept of “things are not always as they appear to be” by Then Husband the Economist, who always declared that everything in life came down to economics. It was a new way of looking at events and pretty much covered all bases except for […]

Firing on All Cylinders

May 1, 2023

For the last couple weeks, every single time Life in the Boomer Lane starts to write a blog post, something crashes through her currently-firing brain cells that seriously diverts her attention. It’s like a fireball of headlines all barreling toward her at once. DeSantis Fires His Wrath Upon Disney World! Tucker Carlson Fired From Fox! […]

Sidney, Say it Ain’t So

Even preschoolers know that information disseminated among humans can become so corrupted so as to emerge as another entity entirely. Preschoolers call this phenomenon “Whisper Down the Lane.” Adults engage in that same phenomenon. To them, it’s called conservative talk media. Depending on which side of the fence one’s posterior currently rests, one either sees […]

Winning, Always Winning. Even When Losing.

Life in the Boomer Lane must apologize to Loyal Readers. She saw the up-to-the-second headline about Nikki Haley throwing her hat into the wrestling ring with Donald J. This needs a blog post, for sure, but LBL had already written the following post. And, blame her for what you will, but she has never been […]

Here, Little Doc

It now seems that the classified and top secret docs that were found at Mar-a-lago were only the tip of the iceberg. Like glitter and Life in the Boomer Lane’s hair, once released, they have the ability to be everywhere at once. First, it was the White House, then Biden’s personal home. Now they have […]

George, George, George

A lot has been written about Congressman and Newly-Crowned Member of the House Committee on Small Business and the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.┬áThe information is coming in at an alarming rate. What’s a poor schmuck to believe? In a service to Loyal Readers, Life in the Boomer Lane arranged for a private interview […]

How the World Could Have Been Saved

December 28, 2022

With only a few days left of 2022, and, with seemingly nothing more that Ex-and-Wannabe-Again-POTUS (XWAP)could possibly say to rivet Life in the Boomer Lane’s attention, he has gone and done it again. His Christmas Eve Rant was an eye opener, not because he trashed the usual suspects, while glorifying himself, but because he has […]

Constitution Constipation

Loyal Readers can be excused if they missed Trump’s latest post on Truth Social. After all, the World Cup and Herschel Walker’s mouth are sucking up most of the airtime now. In addition, there is the imminent appearance of Hanukkah and the fact that a Tortoise named Jonathan, the world’s oldest land animal, is about […]

Falling for the Midterms

November 10, 2022

19

In the weeks leading up to the mid-terms, Life in the Boomer Lane’s in box came perilously close to exceeding 100 political emails per day. Candidates, under a variety circumstances (running behind in the polls and in cash/running well in the polls and in cash/having had their personal credit cards declined) all indicated that LBL’s […]

Born to Peck

For the last few days, a Red-crested woodpecker has been at the top of the utility pole in front of Life in the Boomer Lane’s house. He has been relentlessly pecking away throughout daylight hours. He does not take breaks. The utility pole, as one might assume, is wood. But the object of the bird’s […]
