For the life of me, I cannot think of a word that starts with the letter N that relates to my subject matter. At first, I did this huge post on the United NATIONS.(A replacement for the ineffective League of Nations, the organization was established on 24 October 1945 after World War II in order to prevent another such conflict.)
Baby Boomer Neighborhoods?
|Yes, this is me, in my Haight-Ashbury Neighborhood.|
Back then, our neighborhoods were safe - everybody knew everybody and during Halloween, the streets were packed with kids, dressed up as Cowboys, Astronauts, Ballerinas and I was a Flapper once.
|After that photo in the San Francisco Chronicle, I thought I was pretty cool.|
Many times your neighborhood friends, were your best friends. I was lucky, the boy next door was a drummer in a rock and roll band. My parents hated it - I loved it. He had his cute friends over and I would peek out my bedroom window and watch all the comings and goings.

When my sons were young, I tried to mimic the whole "baby-boomer" thing, down to even the house in a good neighborhood. We lived in our neighborhood for 22 years!
