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!
