Hmm. You look very familiar. I feel as if I've seen you before.

Is it just me, or are come-backs coming back?

Was that question confusing? I’m sorry. I’ll give it another go, which is exactly what I’m talking about.

I see lots of things from my past coming back, but appearing as if these things are somehow brand spanking new and better than the original version.

Back in the day, I called them records and they skipped and scratched. Today, they are called "vinyl" and have superior sound quality. Huh?

Do marketing people think we Baby Boomers ALL have memory problems?

So. Yeah. Right. The 70's, 80's, 90's, and whatever you call the time we're in are a little fuzzy. But the sizzle I remember is fine, Man. Real fine.

Take the Star Wars movie that’s coming out. That movie is (in human years) retirement age, right? But it’s bigger and better than any Marvel comics superhero–also among the geriatric set if we’re honest (and honesty is the policy here at Lorna’s Voice, even if it’s true).

A moment of silence, please?

Take Retro design. You walk into some people’s homes and you think you’ve been transported backward to times you would much rather forget. Or maybe you already forgot. Either way, the mirror ball in the living room creates the kind of flashbacks you won’t soon get over without a little help from your stress reliever of choice.

I'm not able to get the prescription stuff, so I'm trying this holistic approach to managing my stress. Leave me alone. It's not working yet.

And fashions. With the obesity problem in America, who’s bright idea was it to bring back the mini-skirt? When we Baby Boomers were all nubile, leggy lovelies, well, okay. But, please understand, fashion designer people, that we Baby Boomers still think of ourselves as nubile lovelies (well, at least us women do). We tend not to put mirrors in our homes because they don’t reflect an accurate portrayal of our imaginary hottie selves. So we will force ourselves into the mini-skirts, People. Watch out for exploding zippers.

If you wear that new mini-skirt to the ceremony, Honey, I'm going to have to wear this mask you hate so much. Sorry, but that last zipper blow-out cost me an earlobe.

There’s a favorite book of mine that’s making a bit of a come-back lately, too.

Yes

Yup. This little old memoir I wrote is still alive and kicking!

Recently, a brilliant author/illustrator, Susan Clancy, did an interview with me. Along with the interview, she drew some wonderful sketches of me and my furry (and feathery) friends mentioned in the memoir. Hop over to her blog and take a look! 

Sue’s review on Goodreads is: “The book is funny, savvy and smart! Glad I read it. I’m honored to have gotten to meet the author too! I recommend this book as a rainy Saturday read.” Thanks, Sue!

Also, the Women’s Story Circle Network, an organization that supports women writers, just reviewed my memoir. Here is the full review if you’re interested. This excerpt gives you an idea of what the reviewer, Diane Stanton, thought:

“Throughout this book, Lee successfully entertains her reader with a series of anecdotes of one tough life. Her tales are incredibly upbeat and many times just plain funny. This reader never felt sorry for her. Indeed, Lee’s energy and drive and overwhelming desire to get things right are motivational. Her culminating reflections on her contentment with “being me” are inspirational.”

If you haven’t read my memoir yet, what’s stopping you? The e-book is only $1.99. And please review it on Amazon or Goodreads. The 1st edition has 20+ reviews, but they aren’t linked with the new, improved, and award-winning 2nd edition!

Some things really are worth revisiting, wouldn’t you say?

Hmm? Yes, I think it's about time the apron makes a come-back.

Hmm? Yes, I agree. It’s about time the apron makes a come-back. On you, it’s unbearably smashing.
