Z is for Zoomers of Zamuner Crt

zoomer signs oakville

Zoomer magazine, for “Boomers with Zip” according to Moses Znaimer, a media mogul who renamed CARP (Canadian Association of Retired People) Magazine.

Zamuner Crt in Oakville may or may not be named for retired NHL player Robert Zamuner who hailed from that town.

I'm a boomer, but I don't know if I have enough zip to be a zoomer

I have had a few Zoomers amongst my children, but am too old to claim the caption for myself.

I would much rather receive Zoomer than the AARP Magazine (American Association of Retired Persons. Perhaps a move to Canada is in order!

Really love visiting your site.

I was born at the beginning of the post-war baby boom, so my zip and my zoom have both gone the way of all good things.
Great post for Z day, and I'm sure, if Oakville, Ontario, produced an NHL player named Zamuner, that street name can't be a coincidence.
(If you're retired from the National Hockey League, do you have any zip left?)

I suppose I'm a zoomer too, though some days I feel more like a slug.

Zips and Zoomers? And throw in a Zamuner too and it's like a foreign language! LOL!

Very interesting. Never heard of this magazine though I have heard of Moses Znaimer. His name appears on Much Music credits, I think.

VioletSky said...

yes, he was the creator of Citytv and MuchMusic.
