Merry Christmas To My Very Special Boomer Broads, their friends and families
Xmas treeIf I were ol’ Santa, you know what I’d do
I’d dump silly gifts that are given to you
And deliver some things just inside your front door
Things you have lost, but treasured before.I’d give you back all your maidenly vigour,
And to go along with it, a neat tiny figure.
Then restore the old color that once graced your hair
Before rinses and bleaches took residence there.I’d bring back the shape with which you were gifted
So things now suspended need not be uplifted.
I’d draw in your tummy and smooth down your back
Till you’d be a dream in those tight-fitting slacks.I’d remove all your wrinkles and leave only one chin
So you wouldn’t spend hours rubbing grease on your skin.
You’d never have flashes or queer dizzy spells,
And you wouldn’t hear noises like ringing of bells.No sore aching feet and no corns on your toes,
No searching for spectacles when they’re right on your nose.
Not a shot would you take in your arm, hip or fanny,
From a doctor who thinks you’re a nervous old granny.

You’d never have a headache, so no pills would you take.
And no heating pad needed since your muscles won’t ache.
Yes, if I were Santa, you’d never look stupid,
You’d be a cute little chick with the romance of a cupid.

I’d give a lift to your heart when those wolves start to whistle,
And the joys of your heart would be light as a thistle.
But alas! I’m not Santa. I’m simply just me,
The “matronest” of matrons you ever did see.

I wish I could tell you all the symptoms I’ve got,
But I’m due at my doctor’s for an estrogen shot.
Even though we’ve grown older, this wish is sincere,
Merry Christmas to you and a Happy New Year.

While we can all enjoy the humour in these thoughts, is there one of us who would trade where we are today for what we were 40 years ago? This Boomer thinks each day is even better than the day before and I would never really want to go back. We’re blessed; we’re beautiful; we’re Boomer Broads. Thanks for reading. And I look forward to 2014 being the most wonderful year for all of us.

As an early Baby Boomer, born in 1947, it seems to me that as we approach our retirement years, Boomers have gone from being the energy driving our nation to slowly becoming invisible. We risk losing our identity as society remains stubbornly youth-centric. And the irony is that Gen Xers and Ys are not the majority; we are. BOOMERBROADcast is my platform for being the voice of Baby Boomers, women in particular. We've generated a lot of changes over the decades but there's still a long way to go. After a 40-year career in the corporate world, I've taken up expressing the observations and concerns of our generation. Instead of pounding the pavement in my bellbottoms with a cardboard sign, I'm pounding my laptop (I learned to type on a manual typewriter and old habits die hard). If you have issues or concerns you would like voiced or have comments on what I've voiced, I'd love to hear from you. We started breaking the rules in the sixties and now that we're in our sixties it's no time to become complacent. Hope you'll stay tuned and if you like BOOMERBROADcast, share it with your friends. Let's rock n' roll! If you would like to be notified whenever I publish a new posting, click on the little blue box in the lower right of your screen that says +Follow→ Lynda Davis
