You Know You Are A Baby Boomer If…


baby boomers 77.3 million 300x202 You Know You Are A Baby Boomer If...This little diddy was forwarded to me by by fellow baby boomer and good friend Judy Belka.

Are you a baby boomer? If you remember any
of these things you can call yourself one of “us.”

Cruising on a Friday night, listening
to the Top 40 on your AM radio.

You remember the thrill of watching
television for the first time.

When there were only 3 TV channels –
and it was so hard to choose what to watch!

What a TV test pattern looked like, when
the channel went off the air at midnight.

Where you were when JFK was shot…
(or RFK)…(or MLK, Jr.)…

When the Beatles sang “I want to
hold your hand” to Ed Sullivan.

Watching the first man walk on the
moon with “one small step.”

You washed your hair with
Halo or Breck shampoo.

You remember Burma Shave.

Bryl Cream…..a little dab will do ya!

When the price of a brand new car $3000.

You were born before:

polio shots, frozen foods, Xerox, contact lenses, frisbees and The Pill.

We were born before radar, credit cards,
laser beams, and ballpoint pens.

Before panty hose, dishwashers, clothes dryers,
electric blankets, air conditioners,
drip-dry clothes and before man walked on the moon.

Back in the good old days…

Cigarette smoking was fashionable.
GRASS was mowed.
was a cold drink.
POT was something you cooked in.
AIDS were helpers in the Principal’s office.

So What’s The Difference?

Then: Rolling Stones.
Now: Kidney stones.

Then: Keg.
Now: EKG.

Then: Passing the driver’s test.
Now: Passing the vision test.

Then: “Whatever”
Now: “Depends”
