For Your Windows

                                                       A little fun for the weekend.                                                                

 Back in 2012, I did a post on what to call the decades starting this century. I am fortunate to have 5 grandchildren born in those years.    


Here were some of the choices.

1) The 2000’s

2) The aughties

3) The aught naughts

4) The naughties

5) The oh oh’s

6) The ohsies

7) The twenty hundreds

And now we are in the in-betweens maybe? Or is it the “tens”?

I recently spotted this article that answers some questions on what to call the people born this century.

Gen Z or IGen?

So, that does not really help with what to call the decade, does it?

This decade seems easier. The “twenty-tens” works for me, and that distinguishes it from the “tens” from the early 1900’s.

However, I am still stuck on the first decade. I want something that rings positive.

Any ideas?
