I agree! I thought there were more, too. 1966 myself, and I have never heard that I was a Gen X'er until this topic. Wow.

I always thought the "X" generation was the 90's...

I don't buy into the whole 'generations' thing. I'm supposedly Gen X, but there's a huge difference in the experiences of someone born in 1965 and someone born in 1980.

If anyone asks, I'm the Star Wars Generation.

Gen X Blues

I just turned 38 not too long ago. My hands are starting to look a little wrinkly. Not cool at all

But hey, I can bench 285, and I have a silver trailer, and that's cool!

Never smoked pot, but I like my rum.

Angus Young is my man and I can play nearly every song AC/DC ever did.

Way too much gray creeping into my hair, but the hair dresser chick says it's just "character". I pretend to believe her

Besides, my best buddy says I'll get beat up if I go to the Harley shop with jet black grecian formula Wayne Newton looking hair. So I'll just get grayer and grayer like David Alan Coe every day.

On the flip side, I still like to go to Toys R Us and get the cool die cast cars.

I listen to harder/heavier music now than I did 20 years ago.

You have to age, but you don't have to grow old!

Long live Gibson and Fender!

See ya on the road,

I checked the Baby Boomers only because that is what the survey "SAID"... However I truly am........

Generation Jones - is the generation born between the Baby Boomers and Generation X. Jonesers are primarily the offspring of the Silent Generation; mostly they were children in the 1960s, and teens in the 1970s. excerpt from Wikipedia.

IMHO - We respect our elders, have practical and artistic skills, appreciate the Antiques (including the Airstreams ). Quick to learn the new technology as fast as we created it! Come from the days where QUALITY and TRUST were honoured, we have learned from our parents mistakes, ashamed at the wars of the world today, are first to offer a helping hand..........and boy can we party!

Oh and the phrase "keeping up with the Joneses" might have even come from my line of the Welsh Jones!!! (Maiden name JONES!!)

I guess I'm a Jones Generation, too. Born in 1961 and married a 1964 . We are tail-end boomers...wait, that just doesn't sound right...wait, that doesn't "sound" right either. What I mean is, we are late "boomers". (I'm not sure this is getting any better.)

I, too, was a child in the sixties and a teenager in the seventies. We sang to the "Age of Aquarius" and danced to "Boogie Nights" . We are patriotic but didn't like the Vietnam War nor the way our Vietnam War Vets were treated when they returned . We were/are yuppies and helped to invigorate the economy in the '80's after the Nixon and Carter years. We pulled the stock market out of a bear market and into a bull market. We are conspicuous consumers! Does that make us bad? I don't think so. But all those Hollywood celebrities and limousine Democrats would try to make you think so.

Whew! Is it getting hot in here? I need to calm down and take my blood pressure medicine. Anybody got a glass of iced-tea?

I was born in 1938...The Quiet Generation?? World War 2 wasn't quiet . I remember the national unity of then. I remember very clearly at age 7 I awoke up in a hospital bed after surgery and the hospital staff were singing and laughing and letting me have ice cream .....well it was 'heaven'....NOT. Japan just surrendered. When I was almost 10 my future wife was born. A Baby Boomer. Of course we didn't meet until '68. We had 2 'Disco Generation kids, '71 and '75. One of those kids had 2 'New Millinennium' kids. Good Luck grandsons
