Women in Cars

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 […]

The Boomer and the Law

April 3, 2015


This year, Life in the Boomer Lane submitted her taxes and subsequently had a call from her tax guru. “I was looking at your personal property statement for your car, and there was an inspection sticker attached to it,” she said. LBL immediately went to her car to see if anything was amiss, but saw […]

Get Shorty

January 7, 2013


If you are a Boomer, you may have noticed that people your exact height are taller than you.  This phenomenon occurs when Boomers continue to believe they are the same height and weight they were when they were in high school or college or the military, and then a random occurrence forces them to be […]

September 9, 2010


When Life in the Boomer Lane wrote the post about Miracle the Cat (“Cats Flying off the Roof of My Car”), LBL was reminded that LBL has a long history of things in general flying off the roof of her car.  For the five people who have already read LBL’s post about Miracle, you are probably now […]

The Meaning of Brass Balls

August 30, 2010


On Saturday, I drove from Virginia to Oxford, MD to attend an annual gathering of a group of journalists who used to work at the Easton Star Democrat.  That’s where Bill Handleman worked many years ago, and, because Bill died this year, the gathering was going to include a few toasts to Bill, as well […]
