Blogging Boomers Carnival #69

It's my turn to host the Blogging Boomers, so why not grab yourself a coffee, put your feet up for 15 minutes and enjoy a good read?

Let’s kick off with Cindy at Don’t Gel Too Soon who offers her contribution to a “virtual baby shower” for three women who are moving from one child to two.  The question: what’s it like?  The answer – well – mostly, great.   Find out more at:

Ron at I Remember JFK reminisces about  the services that we grew up with which we took for granted would always exist… The guy at the gas station would always be willing to throw in some nice freebie just so we would continue to buy his fuel.
