BABY BOOMER BLUES (c) 010391

As I gaze at myself in the mirror
At the lines that I have amassed
My mind travels back to my childhood
And how quickly the years have passed

While growing up as a ‘Baby Boomer’
The sheer joy of everything then
Danny Dux was our ‘HERO’ and Radio Star
His live broadcast – we’d kill to attend!

And then came the wonder of wonders
The first ever television transmission
Our lounge with neighbours all huddled around
(My big brother tried charging admission)

Kid’s shows like the LIVE Channel Niners
Uncle Jim hosted and if you were game
You could join in and be a contestant
Be on TV, life was never the same

Your friends watched you up on the monitors
Try your skills, or compete with post haste
And placed on our seats for us to take home
FREE Chips, Sliced Bread, ETA Peanut Paste

Holidays? – they were never a problem
Like our ‘day trips’, we’d head off on Sunday
To Amity Point by boat, Caloundra, Hollywell
Or Auny’s cane farm way up in Bundy

Simple ‘breaks’ that were always the greatest
Along with the neighbourhood parties
And the BEST treat that Mum would bring home for me
On their night’s out -
A packet of SMARTIES!
