Very funny! I'm younger than most here and I can still take a joke for Heaven's sake!

Hint! Hint! The year most commonly attributed to the beginning of the Baby Boomer surge is 1946. That would make the "oldest" boomers 65 this year.

Oh my goodness. That would be me!

Yes, it's funny. It's probably true in some cases. But a larger number of Boomers have kept themselves in pretty good shape. I'm 10 years older than the oldest Boomers and I live in my own house, shop and cook for myself, cut my own grass, have survived open heart surgery and colon cancer, and I could Trick or Treat with the best of them. It's just that T or T starts in the evening and it's usually past my bedtime!

Not past our bedtime, but definitely when Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy are on.........can't miss them! And after that comes Monday Night Football. Sorry, Monday night is all taken up!

My wife works a full-time job, but sure loves watching tv! I like tv, but she really LOVES tv! However, there are times that she'd rather play pinochole than watch tv. Either way, come Halloween night, we will flip on our outside Hallloween lights and watch tv!

A woman after myn own heart. Both Scottish heritage and I used to raise Shelties. best of all (at my age), I really don't care for TV and maybe watch it for a whole two hours or so a WEEK.

But alas, we're both taken.
