'57 was the year I was born. Yep, I'm over that 50 hump by a few years, and fixing to be another year older in just a few weeks. That's okay though, I enjoyed the music of the 60's up til now...(some of it now,). I've seen things invented I never would have imagined, worked almost every job I ever wanted, yeah, I'm happy with my life now. Wouldn't trade it for the world, and would NOT want to have to go through it again. I worked too hard to get here, grey hair, wrinkles and all. Laughing.

I'm a Baby Boomer. I'm a 1959 model. My favorite period was the late 1960s to the mid-70s. I only embrace 21st century technology when it serves my needs, such as typing this reply or driving cars that don't fall apart as soon as the odometer reaches 100,000 miles, but I find things like smartphones, texting, GPS, apps, or for that matter, 442 channels on TV, unneccessary.

I'm one of those early 60s kids that pretty much fall in the cracks between the Baby boom and whichever of the dumb names they hang on the next generation. It's helped me though, because I can keep up with conversation and get into things from both those who are older, and younger than myself, but identify with neither. I'm not complaining though, I still get invited to concerts and activities by the teens and twenty somethings but also get to enjoy the stuff off the Boomers too. ;D
