Blogging Boomers Mid-Winter Edition


We’re stuck in a beautiful snow storm in the foothills just east of the magnificent Sangre de Cristo mountain range in southern Colorado today. If you can think of a nicer place to be stuck, please share.

I am here today to share with you the works of a few of my favorite boomer blogger friends, and ask you a question at the end of this post.

Number one is from Linda Myers. She has a timeshare dilemma — too many to use. Go see her dilemma over at her Bag Lady in Waiting Blog. 

Over at The Survive and Thrive Boomer Blog, things are hot and cold. Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, almost had a kitchen fire, so she writes about tips for preventing kitchen fires.  On the cold front, she writes about how older adults can prevent hypothermia during the winter by wearing a hat inside and keeping the temperature at at least 68 degrees.

Meryl Baer of Six Decades and Counting, is traveling once again this week, and discusses the difficulties of finding great eateries on a cross country road trip. Go read about some of her disappointments in Dining Along the Road, especially when traveling off the beaten path.


I have been noticing an interest among my readers in the process we went through in moving from suburbia to rural Colorado, so I wrote about the wins and losses we have experienced in the past two years. 

Near the end of this piece I ask my readers whether age 60 is too old to make new friends. Please send me a comment with your own opinion on this issue. I am really curious what others have to say about this!

  1. I do think it’s harder after you leave school and then leave the working world. If you’re in the same town, maybe not so much, but if you move, I think it can be a challenge. Being a widow, like myself, is even harder, as most people are couples. But one or two really good friends are all it takes…quality over quantity.


  2. I think it is harder to make friends as we get older. People get involved with their families and current friends. There is not as many easy places to meet and make friends – like work, school, your kids’ connections.


  3. Yes Meryl! I am not a church person or a kid person and that limits my options greatly. Then I live somewhere where there are basically no exercise classes, which is where I met my last group of friends. But I am meeting like-minded people very slowly, so I guess there is hope!
