Boomers turned "Mid-Century Classics"

The folks selling real estate around here tell me that buyers are drawn to our suburban, ‘50s housing stock.

Their marketing people have dubbed our ranchers “Mid-Century Classics.”

A lot of my friends, hither to known as “Baby Boomers,” should be forewarned.

They too are “Mid-Century Classics.”

Now I’m wondering whether they have the human equivalent of large lots, single-level construction, hardwood floors and small master bedrooms.

As for me, born in 1942, I’m a pre-mid-century classic. My architectural equivalent is the Quonset hut.
