Our days are numbered.
We Baby Boomers (my tribe) have been the nation’s largest living generation since the boom ended around 1964. However, the U.S. Census Bureau projected in January that Millennials (ages 18-34) will pass us in 2015.
Boomers were born between 1946 and 1964 (now ages 51-69). There will be an estimated 74.9 million Boomers still alive in America in 2015, compared to 75.3 million Millennials. The Census Bureau also projects that GenXers (now ages 35-50) will outnumber us beginning in around 2028.
So who cares?
Apparently Boomers do. They have plenty to say about the lifestyle, health, work and leisure activities of my age demographic, much of it available on the content-rich website www.boomercafe.com. This eclectic site features a plethora of articles about all these topics and more. I’m joining the conversation today with my essay on refusing to retire.
Stop by the Boomer Cafe for a little information and some entertainment, even if you’re not in the 50+ crowd. You never know what you might learn from hanging out with the “old folks.”
