Oh, yeah. 1950. Hated the furniture of that era but the music was interesting. Of course, I was waiting on the British Invasion to really light up the music world.

I'm a boomer; some sources say the last year (1964). Time flies, doesn't it?

I was born in 1966 and I believe that's the "cusp" of the Baby Boomer era or just left of that. My Dh was born in 1957 so he's a baby Baby Boomer.

'66 was a good year! :D My DH was born in 62. I identify more with the Boomer generation than the one that followed it.

If they respect you, respect them. If they disrespect you, still respect them. Don't allow the actions of others to decrease your good manners, because you represent yourself not others.

Depending on which matrix you use, I'm a boomer, my husband is Gen X, our daughter is a millennial, and our son is Gen Z.
