Florida Baby Boomers Will Love This Story


Renee Fisher, writer extraordinaire for “Life In The Boomer Lane” shares a very interesting story on her website! Renee has been writing about “Boomers” for many years. The team at the Sarasota Post thought that this story certainly holds true for Sarasota-Bradenton and the entire state of Florida. Here is her story.

Why We Tell Lies


Life in the Boomer Lane is absolutely sure that National Geographic was not influenced in any way whatsoever by national events when they showcased their cover article in this month’s edition.  “Why We Lie,” according to NatGeo, explores the “science behind our complicated relationship with the truth.”

Yes, My iPhone is Certainly Larger Than Your iPhone


Life in the Boomer Lane has a long history of technology failure.  Most of these experiences can best be summed up by Now Husband as:
1.    What you are telling me isn’t possible.

Life in the Boomer Lane (Renee Fisher) has been preparing for this day for her entire life.  She’s forgotten a lot of what has happened to her over the last 70 years, and some of that is a good thing.  A lot of life decisions she has made were good ones.

Replacing A Baby With A Burrito


Life in the Boomer Lane is in Charleston, where Youngest Child and Daughter-in-Law have just produced their first child, after a mere 36-hour labor. DIL is a yoga  and natural food devotee and so was the perfect subject for the doula’s attempt to place her body in more positions than are contained in the Kama Sutra, in an attempt to eject Beloved Offspring.

How to Appreciate 2016


For those of you who look back and see 2016 as a year that felt like a trip through a scary haunted house in which, after you have narrowly avoided death at every turn, the monster waits until you are just outside and then, when you think you are home free, he catches up with you and spits in your face and rips your eyeballs out and then eats you, take heart. Life in the Boomer Lane has evidence that other ’16s were maybe just a little bit worse.
