You've all heard how Baby Boomers start turning age 60 today. Here's the press release from the Census Bureau if you somehow missed it.
There are zillions of us boomers - we're sure to make this rite of passage a big event - if only for the number of dollars spent and the amount of angst spewed. Is it possible for an entire generation to age gracefully?
About a month ago Leslie and I were invited to a Quinceañera - an elaborate Latina's fifteenth birthday party. (The picture is a table decoration from the event.)
Leslie remembered her Sweet 16 party for me and it made me think that boomer women should start having - - SWEET SIXTY PARTIES. Judging by a Google search (just one hit) this is not an idea whose time has come.
Men could do it too - but we'd have to think of a different name.
