A Shopping Trip

May 9, 2017

Life in the Boomer Lane has a close friend who is a brilliant, highly accomplished visionary.  Listening to her is both mesmerizing and inspiring.  This weekend, she took a break from her international and political work in order to accompany LBL on a trip to a popular antiques/home accessories store.  The shopping trip went something […]

This New Orange Era: The Day After

January 23, 2017

There’s a novel I read, One Second After, about a high energy EMP (electro magnetic pulse) missile fired above the US by a country with which we were at war. EMPs kill no one directly. Instead, they cause all electronic activity to cease. In other words, computers stop computing, cars stop moving, cells stop working, and what […]

    Life in the Boomer Lane marched with her daughter, 7-month-old grandson, a group of her daughters friends and their small children and babies.

An alert (and most likely having nothing better to do) reader has sent Life in the Boomer Lane an article about the latest form of abuse: pubic hair. Or, more specifically, how women injure […]

The Well-Dressed Closet

  Life in the Boomer Lane was standing at her curb, yesterday, depositing a carton into the recycling bin, before the recycling truck was ro arrive.  A woman was walking by with her dog. She stopped in front of LBL and complimented her on her cute little workout top (Forever 21, really cheap).  LBL thanked […]

Bitch Planet

December 10, 2014

Vox Magazine had an interesting article about a new feminist comic book titled “Bitch Planet.” This comic has deep and meaningful ramifications for society’s often misguided and misogynistic culture. But, since Life in the Boomer Lane stopped caring about comics once she got too old for Betty and Veronica, she doesn’t care about this. On […]
