About Me & My Blog
I’m a boomer, writer, mother, veteran, ‘extra’ actress, and some other things. There are a LOT of us boomers around, and I think we have a lot to say. Wisdom to share. Opinions to spout. Rants to blather on and on about until the kids and our friends are sick of us. I’ll post with hope for wisdom, but sometimes it will only be opinion. I’ll post with hope to entertain, but sometimes it will backfire and just make people mad.
I live in the wonderful city of Portland, Oregon where much of our population is artsy fartsy, hipsters, forest-trail-hiking outdoorsmen, FISHERMEN, pub-crawling darts players, WRITERS, soccer and basketball fans, MUSICIANS, and most recently, thanks to Leverage and Grimm, television extras. In my unfocused dotage, I’ve been dabbing my toes into several of these categories.
My blog is about everyday things that concern those of us who are now stepping into our seventh decade on earth, shocked by the number of birthday candles we now have, but still ready to go to a Springsteen concert the moment a ticket falls into our lap. Or, for some, Barry Manilow. (I heart them both!)
Brothers and Babes in Boomerhood….. this blog’s for us!
