Notes from Baby Boomers

This is really funny! But NOT! . . . and we Boomers thought we were so "radical" back in the '60s.

Please be ESPECIALLY careful when you use the term "thongs"--to us it otherwise denotes "flip flops". . hmmm.

Fashion No-Nos: Many of us (those over 40, WAY over 40 or hovering near 40) are quite confused about how we should present ourselves.

We're unsure about the kind of image we are projecting and whether or not we are correct as we try to conform to current fashions.

Despite what you may have seen on the streets, the following combination DO NOT go together and should be avoided:

1. A nose ring and bifocals ESPECIALLY if there is a chain attached from the nose to other body parts. . .

2. Spiked hair and bald spots or hair implants

3. A pierced tongue and dentures

4. Miniskirts and support hose

5. Ankle bracelets and corn pads

6. Speedo's and cellulite

7. A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar

8. Unbuttoned disco shirts and a heart monitor

9. Midriff shirts and a midriff bulge .

10. Bikinis and liver spots

11. Short shorts and varicose veins

12. Inline skates and a walker

And last, but not least . . . my personal favorite:

13. Thongs and Depends

14. Tattooes and potbelly

Please keep these basic guidelines foremost in your mind when you shop.
