Superboomers!

August 5, 2014 - Graham

‘Baby boomers are spearheading a social revolution by redefining retirement and old age’ (The Times 4 August 2014).

Well, it all depends on your outlook ( and wallet). Two snippets of conversation heard this week:

1. Two ladies, mid 50s, strolling in the park.

‘Well, when you get to our age you don’t much want to ….’

2.  Couple,  mid 70s

‘We are off to Aldeney in the Channel Isles next week’

‘Lovely! how do you get there?’

‘Well sometimes we sail the boat. This time we are flying our plane’.

Boom on!
