We are indeed the people our parents warned us
against! Our generation, the Boomers, have been
through a lot - some of it joyous, some of it painful.
We are now approaching the autumn of our years. Part
of that stage of life is reflecting on what we have
done and what we will do with the time we have left.
Jimmy Buffett does that in his best-selling book,
A Pirate Looks at Fifty. As I read it, I'll try to
pick out some interesting quotes and thoughts and put
them here. Jimmy turned 52 in December - Ed turned 52
in January. We are growing older, but not up.
I was born on January 27, 1947, the same year as
the transistor was invented. I share the same birth
date as Mozart. I love sailing, music, and walking
in the woods. I try to work out or run five days a
week or at least do some exercise. In my younger
days, I rode a motorcycle across the country and
later up to Alaska.
Dorothy and I traveled around the world together,
lived in Kirksville, Missouri and then in The Hague
in Holland. Ironically, we returned to Connecticut
where I grew up and where we met. I started my
business, Micro Services Group, in 1988 and do
computer training, repair and systems work for
a variety of customers.
My first memory is being on a boat - not a real
boat, but a child-size boat at a carnival. It was
like a merry-go-round in water. I was two or
three at the time.
I grew up in the age of the ideal family. One of
the first TV shows that I remember watching was I
Remember Mama on Friday nights. Later, along came
the famous TV families of the Fifties: remember
the Nelsons (Ozzie, Harriet, Ricky, and David),
the Andersons (Jim, Margaret, Bud, Princess, and
Kitten), the Cleavers (the Beaver - Theodore, Wally,
June, Ward, and of course my namesake - Eddie Haskell),
and the Stones (Donna, Dr. Alex Mary, Jeff, and
Trish). Families are rarely ideal and I certainly
didn't understand much about family dynamics
I was the son of a sailor. My father's life and
only love was the Navy. He was in the Navy for 20
years. That was the high point of his life. My mother
had been severely abused as a young child and was
removed from her home. One can only imagine what
happened to be taken from her mother and step-father's
home in the 1920s. My mother could only love little
children and dogs. My mother would tell me that if
you could read, you would never be lonely. She was
wrong. Books don't replace people or experiences.
What I do:
