It’s that time again–some curated content from Baby Boomer blogs I follow. Got some time today? Peruse these gems!
Although travel can be fun and enlightening, it can also be tedious and tiring. Meryl Baer of Six Decades and Counting is on the road once again, this time driving to Vermont for a family visit. Following a long drive she discovered finding reasonable accommodations during the summer, height of the tourist season in many places, a challenge. Eventually successful, she writes about the hunt in In Search of One Night’s Sleep. That isn’t “clothing optional.”
Sundays are great days for reflection. Laura Lee Carter wrote about observations she has made since moving from Fort Collins suburbia to rural southern Colorado two years ago. But she hopes that you can find unconditional love wherever you land!
While Republican National Convention speakers complained on and on about government, state and federal agencies continued their work on behalf of consumers. For example, on The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, my favorite Boomer consumer journalist, Rita R.

Right?? 😉 Back in January I blogged about booking travel to France on the day of the Bataclan massacre. Nothing much has changed since then, except that our trip is now fully booked and paid for. Here’s why we aren’t canceling it. Yet.
