How to Buy A Swimsuit

March 18, 2014

Life in the Boomer Lane has been so busy shoveling snow, losing gloves and stocking up on milk, toilet paper, and the makings of chocolate chip cookies, that she has failed to notice that Spring starts in two days. Spring is the season in which all of LBL’s senses undergo their yearly reawakening, and she […]

How to be A Jewish Boomer and Still Celebrate Christmas

December 16, 2013

  Jews throughout history have devised clever ways to horn in on the Christmas holiday. They have, like Life in the Boomer Lane, married Christians. They have created their own traditions which usually involve going to the movies and/or eating Chinese food. They get trees and festoon them with blue ornaments and call them Chanukah […]

The Model and the Boomer

November 20, 2013

It has come to Life in the Boomer Lane’s attention that if she doesn’t write about boomers soon, she might as well change her blog to Life in the General Doo-Doo Lane. To avoid this, she has returned to Boomerdom. Here goes: LBL loves shopping at Loehmanns. Aside from the discounts, it’s a store that […]

Let’s Talk Boobs

July 11, 2012

Actually, let’s talk bras, even though they aren’t much fun to talk about. When we start wearing them, they are usually too big and they feel like alien beings have attached themselves to us.  Our first heavy make out sessions can involve young men who have seemed up until that point perfectly normal, with all […]

Ur-ine Control

Many people, especially older boomers, often wonder why technology is important.  They mostly wonder this at the exact time they are using technology.  At other times, they pretend technology doesn’t exist. But pretending technology doesn’t exist is dangerous.  Imagine a massive, rabid bear (technology) beating your front door down (your actual front door), clawing your […]

Christmas in London: Santa is Booked, But An Elf Might Be Available

November 24, 2011

It’s Thanksgiving and the best way to celebrate is to get in line now for all the “Black Friday Sales That Start on Thursday” sales. The second best way is to post this brilliantly reworked piece about Christmas in London and to hope that the people who read the inferior post  last year are too […]

        before and after Spanx (The following is the fourth in my new series, “Old Posts to Dredge out on Slow Weekends Because When I Posted Them Originally People Cared More About the Economy and World Peace Than My Blog.” Although nothing has changed, it’s the start of a slow weekend.)

First, this week, www.livelaughloveliquor.com has bestowed on me the Stylish Blogger Award, for which I am very grateful.  LLLL is a very, very funny lady, whose material is the Universe of Satire.  And I wanted to pass along a blog I just started following: www.mylittlespacebook.wordpress.com.  I was hooked when I read her page “I Am.” […]

We have stuff. Like earrings with a lot of breasts.

In my quest to come up with more activities than one human being can possibly engage in without making a dime, I have started making cuff bracelets.  Since I have already purchased my new spring wardrobe (The sleeping bra.  Remember?), I am now purchasing metal cuffs, ribbons, glue, and vintage buttons and earrings for embellishment.  I […]
