Sincere thanks go to all the good Boomers across the USA and Canada who helped to make the 2015 celebrations of Baby Boomers Recognition Day happen. And thanks to Patty McGarr for the last-minute creation of the beautiful collage shown above.
You know it’s strange how often people keep trying to sell us on the odd idea that we should become ancient and obsolete. Remember those embarrassing 50-year birthday gifts? We laugh and pretend it’s “all in fun” but it keeps happening over and over, so we start to believe.
That’s why it’s great that once a year we take a day to remember our younger years, have some fun, and revive a bit more of that younger joy-of-life that once kept us dancing all night.
Like Lionel Richie said,
Well, my friends, the time has come
To raise the roof and have some fun
Throw away the work to be done
Let the music play on….
All night long!
