Most folks believe I am a Baby Boomer. I was born in 1960, which according to many puts me in that boom box.
Many say Boomers are people born from 1945 to 1964. But that isn't accurate in terms of social experience. As a Tweener, my cultural references, influences and experiences differ from both the Boomers (except for the music), and from the proceeding Generation Xers.
I personally think true Boomers with the full Boomer experience were born from 1945 to 1955. We 'Tweeners didn't go to Woodstock. We didn't ban the bra or march on Selma or burn our draft cards. We didn't really change the world much. Why? Because, well, we came of age in the mid-70's, which was essentially an extended hangover from the 60's and, then, from Watergate.
How Tall is Your Family?
I come from a short family. My grandfather was 5 foot 3. In his younger days, he took dancing lessons. He became such a great dancer that women of all heights asked him to dance. He has his PhD and has never been defined by his height.
