But unlike past generations there are more of us boomers alive and thriving in good health today than any other generation in the entire history of mankind. Little did we realize that when we were kids, sayings like "never trust anyone over thirty" would ring hollow just years later. After quitting smoking over twenty years ago, little did 'T' realize that saying stupid things like "if I live to sixty rm going back to smoking. A little definition Of terms is needed here. A "boomer" or "baby boomer" are those of us that were born to the generation that lived during WWII. We were born in the forties, fifties, and early sixties, We, in our sixties and late fifties are the progeny of the "Greatest Generation". Things were much different then and the receipt of a recent e-mail from my inimitable Aunt Judy brought to mind things that I remember hearing from my parents and grandparents. Like... 'TII tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are, it's going to be impossible to buy a week s groceries for $10.00." "Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won't be long before $1,000.00 will only buy a used one." If cigarettes keep going up in price, rm going to quit; 20 cents a pack is ridiculous." And I love this one, thinking back to my first paying job at fourteen when I was making a little over a buck an hour. "If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store." When I tell youngsters about when I started driving I paid for gas with the change I had in my pocket because gas at the local Texaco was usually about 27 cents. Then I saw this, which was obviously a statement from an earlier generation than mine and it really hit home. "When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon. Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage." These days there's hardly anything that's taboo in the movies and TV isn't far behind.~ "e parcel ~ ar'rp~ Nicp ~pntlv on 2 1 acres with uninterruptedThe generation ahead of me Vl W ...... , ~. .,. .......... o .....

When was the last time the day when the Government takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best people to government." There are these gems from the forties and fifties. "No one can afford to be sick anymore. At $15.00 a day in the hospital, it's too rich for my blood." Are you kidding me! They charge more than that for an aspirin today. "There is no sense going on short trips anymore for a weekend. It costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay in a hotel. Are you kidding me? A coke or a bag of ~oretzels from the vending machine costs more than that. "If they think rll pay 30 cents for a haircut, forget it." Are you kidding me?... Never mind, rll leave you with this one which should be a nice segue into my close. "The fast food restaurant is convenient for a quick meal, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on." So here's the segue, No. fast food at the Legion. This Friday night at the Legion is the second in SACs Beefeater series of classic beef meals. Oh did I say beef? I meant meat, as in meat eaters. This Friday it's going to be ribs, as in the baby backs the jewel of the porcine rib cage. BBQ'd in a delicious blend of spices and sauce, with red potatoes, seasonal vegetable and salad of course. At fifteen dollars you'd be crazy to miss this one and to ensure you get a seat at the table, buy an advance ticket for $15.00 from one of the Sons, or come to the Legion to get one. Walk-ins the night of the event are welcome of course, but to guarantee a seat at the table an advance ticket is what it takes. Hear Ye! Hear Ye! If you're getting this issue on Tuesday, don't forget that ff's St. Paddy's Day and tonight is the annual corned beef and cabbage dinner at the Legion in celebration of the Irish Saint. This year ff's hosted by the Auxiliary. Wear a touch of green, add a brogue or lilt to your speech and enjoy a great meal for ten dollars.

The script demands lively pace and sharp comic timing; without either it drags.., this show soared. The enthusiastic and well rehearsed cast was spot on; the stage crew delivered two distinct settings as the plot took us from indoors to leafy outdoors. Director, Sonja Kodimer, her cast, her crew and slew of volunteers have set the bar high for future performance in this historic space.
