(Pictures are of Seniors in Athens, Greece in 1957. My first trip overseas)
Senior moments causes a mess in the microwave. Just put a half cup of coffee in to reheat and see what happens if you forget it, and you have given it a minute! My coffee was allover the inside of our new microwave. The danged cup was empty and I wanted that half cup of coffee.
I get jokes about seniors all the time, but that is what they WERE, was jokes. Now the laughs are starting to haunt me. This motorhome isn’t big, but I can get up and walk the five steps to the front and forget why I went there. Now I have read it, but when it happens I don’t laugh anymore.
In the car when I want the lights, I go thru the signal lights, wipers, washer, then I just might find the lights. This ain’t funny no more.
I have never had large vocabulary, but what little I have leaves me at the wrongest times. The words float by but I cannot grab them. Sherry will help me sometime. It feels good to find that lost word without asking for help, sorta like finding an Easter egg that isn’t cracked already.
Yeah and using cumin instead of Cinnamon doesn’t raise your self respect much either.
I like these crazy Sandhill Cranes, I mean to get a picture. When one walks/struts across in front of me I say, I meant to bring the camera.
I sit here in the morning, I read my e-mails and sit wondering what I should be doing. Then I remember, time to read the blogs, you do it every morning, you gotta check to see if Lucy has kilt Joe yet.
Then I leave a blog and say, did I comment? Every once in awhile Sherry will say, “I’m surprised, you didn’t comment on Paula.” My answer is always ‘Yes I did.’ But when I check either I did not submit it or FORGOT!
Face book is the worst. half the time I forget to submit my ‘cute comment.’
Alzheimer's is not in my family history, I hope I am not going to set a precedence. It is probably just dementia, I ain’t crazy about that option either.
Hopefully it is just those cute little funny ‘Senior Moments’ y’all all laugh at. I exercise my mind, I am doing jumping jacks, right now!……………….(in my mind) .
Yeah, I know we all have lapses of memory, I have decided to laugh at mine, really, until I can figure how to fix it. I like to fix stuff!
Reindeer night off!
