    Kinda sucks to think that my youngest son, (on Ba), is the same age as most of you. But then again, I'm proud of my battle scars

    Technically, but barley a boomer, since I was born in the last week of 1964

    January 1961. 51 years old. (That's 217 in dog years!) B-day coming soon.
  22. 1964, but most of us from '62-on prefer to disassociate ourselves from the 'Boomer' tag, as well as their culture. I'll thank you not to hang that one on me, thankyouverymuch.

    If you want to be disassociated, why do you use Jerry as your avatar? Just cool I'm guessing.

    1957 was without a doubt the best year my parents ever had. And my kids are following in my footsteps(my daughter more than my son but he's coming around)

    Not a boomer... to quote Maxwell Smart "Missed it by THAT much".

    Don't consider myself an Xer either.... like the rest of kids on the short bus. I'm pretty damn special.:p

    Still can't drive 65!
