Wouldn’t it be nice to hop in and take a ride back to a more innocent time? It wasn’t a perfect time, not by a long shot, but it wasn’t as openly vile as the zeitgeist now. I don’t know about you, but i’m so weary of the stuff going on around us. Exhausted.
So let’s distract ourselves with some fun posts by my favorite Boomer bloggers.
Summer is officially here in Northern Alberta! That time when the habitually housebound tentatively venture outdoors for fun and games and family times. For the more daring, taking rides at the midway—including the roller coaster.
Something Diane dares—only read about. Or put to the pen…

A different profile in courage from Laurie
Laurie Stone sees him around town sometimes. The other day he was in her neighborhood coffee shop where she heard the lady behind the counter call him Ray. He looks to be in his thirties with brown hair and always wears neatly pressed khakis and a flannel shirt. A red bandana is usually tied around his neck. Whenever she sees this man, she’s struck by his courage.
Jennifer talks about our most recent holiday
This year, on Monday, there is a Federal holiday recognizing Juneteenth, which is actually June 19th. Have you heard of Juneteenth? Or did you first hear about it last year when you got a day off for it? Jennifer, of Unfold and Begin,
didn’t hear about it until the early 2000s when she had an employee relocate from Texas. And yet, it’s been celebrated in Texas since 1866. When did you first learn about Juneteenth?
Tom’s reflective today
Tom from Sightings Over Sixty spent the week reflecting on a few of our current issues, and now in Sometimes I Think I’m a Liberal … he wonders if he’s a liberal or if he’s really a conservative. Despite our so-called polarization, he thinks, sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference.
Meryl celebrates another year!
As we get older and the years roll by, birthdays are not usually cause for great celebrations, especially if not auspicious ones ending in a 0 or 5. On the other hand it beats the alternative, and we should rejoice. Meryl Baer of Beach Boomer Bulletin faces this dilemma as she officially turns another year older.
And of course, it wouldn’t be right to not acknowledge Father’s Day with a story about my own dad.
