    kids born to the generation that came home from WWII.  My ex was born in '61, her father was in France toward the end of the War, and she was the last (an oops) child.  Boomer.  I was born in '62, and my father was born during the war, while his father fought it.  So I'm not a Boomer, and arguably, neither was my father.

    Another part of that Boomer definition is often attitudes, expectations...and my ex fit the stereotype, though I never did.

    I realize that all this stuff is all just over generalization, anyway.

      I was born in 54, my youngest brother in 1960, 64 seems a reasonable cut off date.
