March 4, 2022


Life in the Boomer Lane believed she was safe from being sucked into writing another post about the recently sprouted branch of the human tree who refer to themselves as Trumpers. She could then devote herself solely to Putin’s War Against Humanity and watching Season 2 of “Love Is Blind.” Not so. The New York […]

Cloud Cuckoo Land

February 26, 2022


As the ongoing target of Trump’s affection continues to steamroll his way across Ukraine, Life in the Boomer Lane chooses to take this opportunity to discuss something other than politics or the giant cinderblock of climate change that is suspended over our heads.

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.
