The next rebels

I belong to the generation that followed the boomers. No, not Generation X. That other generation. The small one that is considered boomer but really isn’t. We’re just the tail at best. We aren’t the ones that rebelled. As my high school history teacher said: We’re the nothing-happened generation.

I made this!

There is one thing I will never flaunt, and that is my cooking skills. I am grateful if I enjoy what I made, because that’s not a given.

Some bloggers I read have Like-buttons on their posts and I like those. Sometimes you don’t know what to say, or there really isn’t anything to say, but you do want the other person to know you saw what they wrote.
