Born too young to fight in WW2 but too old to get drafted for Vietnam; enjoyed the social & cultural freedoms of the 1960s while being just a fraction too old to lose their heads, turn into annoying hippies, get fucked up on acid or become bitter & disillusioned when it all got real in the 70s; benefited from late 20th century advances in education, medicine, nutrition etc to the extent that they're enjoying a healthy, comfortable, fulfilling old age and will most likely die in relative peace & dignity; will finally shuffle off just as the rest of us get set to be fucked by climate change & economic armageddon.

Bought an unspectacular family home in a no-big-deal suburb, back when you had to put on your best clothes and shine your shoes to go & see your bank manager for a loan. Fifteen years later the suburb had turned into a major hub, almost like a second city centre, and our house was now five minutes' walk away from the action. They eventually sold it for four or five times what they'd paid.
