Rockin’ On!

Yes, we’re at it again… breaking through milestones and making the news. On Monday, October 15th, 2007, the very first baby boomer applied for Social Security. YIKES!

In fact, this woman has been known all her life for being on the forefront. Her name is Kathleen Casey-Kirschling and she was born one second after midnight on Jan. 1, 1946. She is considered, by those who track such things, to be the nation’s very first baby boomer and it seems only fitting that she be the first to take early retirement benefits.

Okay, the thought is a bit daunting to an age group who loudly and forcefully prided itself on being on the youthful side of the “Generation Gap.” But, hey, this is no reason to slide into a funk about growing older. Actually, it’s pretty exciting. We truly are going to change the world one more time and revolutionize how aging is perceived by the culture. No rocking chairs for us! We’re going to keep on rockin’ & rollin’ long into our naughty nineties!

Although we are the grooviest generation on the planet, let’s borrow a bit of attitude from our elders. Take a look at this!

Thank you for sharing the video.
I can’t wait to pass it on!
Our generation is pretty GREAT!

Yippee and Woo-Who — I am polishing my dancing shoes! You bet we’re going to change the world one more time — we might even have time to change it twice. Great post, thanks for the inspiration!

I believe that first collecting boomer is a fellow Jersey girl…and right in my neck of the woods. She actually went to school with my sister-in-law!

I loved it and will pass on.

very interesting, but I don’t agree with you

How did I miss this post??? This is a great post and telling us about the first “official” baby boomer applying for social security is an eye opener – yes, we really are no longer young, but we are not dead are we???

Yes, let us continue to rock on and bring revolution to the “golden years”!
