Boomers Fade

 August 29, 2020

   Every generation has its run, and then, to put it bluntly, it's done.

    Increasingly, I find my thoughts turning to the great Boomer fade. We are living through the fade even as you read this.

   It's easy to see—and look at objectively—when you're studying, say, the Old West, and you read about the cowboys and gunfighters witnessing the end of their lifestyle and in essence, their world. Here comes the car, there goes the horse.

  But it's a little more painful when it's actually happening to oneself. In fact it's quite painful when you see the things you fought for and believed had some permanence, being swept away, by the incoming hordes of ungrateful, little X-bastards.


   But, at least now I know how The Greatest Generation felt about being replaced by the long-haired, Commie-loving Boomers, like me.


    Hey, give peace a chance, Man!

         And so it goes. 

"Every generation thinks it's smarter than the last and wiser than the next."

    There's plenty of the Silent Generation still kickin' butt, Bob.

    They just don't toot their horns like we Boomers did.

    Don't write us all off yet, heck, lots of Boomers not even 60.
