Then you can spend some time honing your trailer parking skills . It looks like that trailer is at least an 1/8th of an inch more to the street side even with the door opening requirement.

Hi, Barry. Thank you, but I thought my picture was small enough so you wouldn't be able to tell it was that much off center.

1952. I've got a few years until SS, but, like a lot of boomers I really have no intention to retire.

Well, technically I am in the Baby Boomer generation, having been born in '62, but I don't consider myself a boomer. I've always thought this category was ridiculous because it spans too many years. The description above doesn't apply to me at all. During the counterculture movement I was beginning elementary school!

IMO, there aren't any commonalities among the cultural experiences of those born right after WWII and those of us born in the early 60s. Lumping us together simply because of birth rate statistics doesn't make much sense to me.

Gen X, Baby! Age is a state of mind until the metamusil runs out, then it's a state of emergency.

1963. I tend to place myself in Generation X. Local boy Doug Coupland wrote the book "Generation X" and placed this generation as those born between 1960 and 1965. My parents were born in 1939 and 1940, so they neither fit in the Silent Generation, nor the Boomer generation. I know for a fact that there are many cultural references of the Boomer Generation that I don't particularly identify with.

Maybe you shouldn’t have put it on your Public Profile. Then again, I have never doubted that you always will be 21 (or less).


Have you baked any more bread lately? We could have used it at the chili cook off in Branson this weekend. A lot of people were trying to cool down.

I was born in 1966, that was the summer before the summer of love. That makes me a generation "X'er" too. What happened to the "WE" generation and the "ME" generation? Wasn't there a "LOST" generation too? Are they all subgenerations of the generation "X"? How long exactly is a generation? Am I asking too many questions?
