Baby boomers….

Just for the record, I believe the proper definition of baby boomer is anyone born after the war who remembers watching the original Howdy Doody show.  Period.  End of discussion.   If you didn’t watch Howdy Doody and you don’t remember Clarabelle honking his horn and squirting his seltzer bottle at Buffalo Bob, and you don’t know Dilly Dally, Flubadub, Chief Thunderthud, Princess Summerfallwinterspring and the mayor of Doodyville, Mr. Phineas T. Bluster, then you do not qualify, sorry kids….

This of course means that Obama, born in 1960, the last year of the original show broadcasts, is speaking true when he says that he does not identify with boomers but rather with the next generation.   The torch has been passed….

  1. Boomers plus…that is the way it should read…Anyone who was of the easy generation of no seat belts, helmets, worrying mothers, guarded life in general can be part of the baby boomers generation..carol stanley author of FOr Kids 59.99 and Over

  2. Thanks, Carol. That’s one way of looking at it. I’m now a plus-size so I guess I can be a Boomer Plus. I think, officially, my generation is called the “Rock and Roll” Generation…those of us born between 1942-1946. I don’t think most of us know that that’s what we’re called but, at 66, I watched Howdy Doody before some boomers were born. Phyllis May, autor of “ReFIRED not Retired…reignite your zest for life”!
