In this photo taken Nov. 2, 2012, Diane Spitaliere and her pet dog Izzie sit in her car outside her house in Alexandria. Baby boomers, that giant population bubble born between 1946 and 1964, started driving at a young age and became more mobile than any generation before or since. Spitaliere, a 58-year-old who recently retired after working 38 years at the Federal Aviation Administration, said the idea of moving to a retirement or assisted living community "is just very unappealing to me."
