Life in the Boomer Lane has been getting used to her hair not only falling out, but flying across rooms and nestling in surprising places.

Life in the Boomer Lane has been, for the past few months, spending an inordinate amount of time on her screen porch. The porch has become her window to the world. On her porch, she can appreciate the outdoor air, without regard to rain. She can watch the never-ending stream of dogs and owners, parents […]
