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. She has noted hair inside freshly washed laundry, hair clinging to furniture, and hair doing a balletic freefall onto laptop keys as she types this blog post. While she considered […]

Congress is entirely distracted now, either trying to pass legislation or trying to stop the passage of legislation. Life in the Boomer Lane will not deter them from their respective missions by casting comments in their direction. Instead, she will address herself to something other than the GOP that annoys the shit out of her: […]

A good friend of Life in the Boomer Lane’s Now Husband retired to Maine a few years ago, to be closer to his family. Recently, he threw out his back, and was on the verge of being bedridden. Now Husband called him a few days ago, to check up on him. He didn’t pick up. […]

LBL hasn’t posted anything in quite some time. She has spent most of that time with family, reminding herself that, when both children and then grandchildren have all been successfully potty-trained, life becomes far more civilized.

In the enlightened era that surrounds us, folks are beginning to look around them and say, “Whoa, that’s bad!

The news lately has been filled with so much to ponder, that Life in the Boomer Lane barely had time to focus on her three hour cry-for-help call to Apple this morning. But she did get through the call, learned her issue would remain unresolved, and so could then get back to the musing at […]

12

Eschatology within Christian theology, derived from two Greek words meaning “last” and “study,” is the study of ‘end things’, whether the end of an individual life, or the end of the age. This, then, seems a perfect time to discuss the massive end of things that is staring humans in the eyeballs right now. What follows are […]

April 2, 2020

19

Friendship was invented a long time ago, specifically when some random human told a second human, “Hey! There’s a Big Something behind you” just in time for the second human to jump out of the way as a surly mastodon barreled through. After that, the two became buddies and watched fighting every Friday night together. […]
