Baby Boomer's social commentary on life in OUR sixties for those who rocked life in THE sixties.

These boots are made for workin’

Sometimes entering a radio contest pays off as it did for me a couple of weeks ago when I e-mailed my entry to a contest on Sirius Satellite’s What She Says program that runs every morning on CBC Talk Radio, Channel 167 starting at 10:00 a.m. I always enjoy the topics covered by hosts Kate Wheeler, Christine Bentley and Sharon Caddy Their guests are interesting and the topics of discussion are of interest to women as well as men. In promoting a line of work boots designed specifically for women, they were offering a free pair to the person who submitted the best reason for why they should win. Here’s what they said:

WINNER OF OUR “SHOW US YOUR MOXIE” CONTEST

 

This contest entered the construction phase with the appearance of our guest Marissa McTasney, the inspirational entrepreneur who told us her story of ditching corporate world high heels for the trade’s world work boots … only to find out there was no such thing as women’s work boots! Marissa is now President of Moxie Trades Ltd. whose first product was the Iconic Pink Work Boot for WOMEN! You can check out the entire line of women’s safety apparel now available at www.moxietrades.com

Well, we were so inspired here at What She Said Radio by Marissa’s story that we challenged our subscribers to SHOW US THEIR MOXIE and that is exactly what our winner Lynda Davis of Mississauga did! This is what she told us…

” As someone who spent most of my career in the construction industry it was always frustrating to me that I had to buy MEN’S size 4 safety boots, which were nearly impossible to source in the days before the internet. I looooooove these boots – just wish they’d been available years ago. As a cool, rockin’ Boomer chick I’d really do them justice. Everyone would stop me and ask where I got those boots (Amelia boots) and I’d be your best promoter.” Here is a picture of Lynda Davis wearing her men’s size 4 safety boots. We are sure you will all agree how amazing she will look in her brand new black Amelia work boots – with pink laces of course!

And here I am a couple of weeks later in my new Moxie boots. Although they have safety toes and are shock-resistant, they’re not just for working—with a choice between hot pink or black laces, they’re suitable for both informal and formal wear. Rock on!

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
