My Memory is Just Fine

Thank you very much. How is your memory? I have the same memory I had when I was 10 years old. Well, kinda. Sorta. I know the three most important things in life are the relationships we build, the legacy we leave, and, uh, you know, that third thing. It's right on the tip of my brain.

A Day to Remember

Just a line to say I'm living, 
That I'm not among the dead.  
I'm just getting more forgetful,  
And more mixed up in the head.  

One thing I can't remember
When I stand at the foot of the stair,
Was I going up for something
Or did I just come down from there?

I stand before the refrigerator,
My poor mind filled with doubt:
Have I just put the food away?
Or have I come to take it out?

Then snug in robe and nightgown,
With curlers on my head . . .
Was I going to retire?
Or . . . just getting out of bed?

So if it is my turn to write you,
There is no need of getting sore,
I probably think that I have written
And don't want to be a bore.

I'm going out to mail this letter,
For the mailman's almost here . . .
I look forward to your answer,
For now, goodbye, my dear.


There I stood beside the mailbox,
With a face so very red,
Instead of mailing you my letter,
I had opened it instead ! ! !

Memory is a Terrible Thing to Lose

"I'm at the point in life where I don't care about what happened in the past. I live in the moment!"  ~ Ethyl

"The medical term for that is Short-Term Memory Loss." ~ Ethyl's friend Martha

"My memory is so bad."
"How bad is it?"
"How bad is what?"

"I don't suffer from memory loss. I enjoy it."

"I am lost. I've gone to look for myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait here."

"As my memory is not as good as it used to be, I sometimes have trouble remembering my computer passwords. I'm thinking of changing them to 'incorrect'. That way, when I log in with the wrong password, the computer will tell me, 'Your Password is Incorrect'."

"A big advantage of having short term memory loss is that now I can plan my own surprise parties and still be surprised when it happens."

"While I sometimes walk into a room, and can't remember why I am there, I call still recall all the lyrics and sing along with the songs I heard in the 70's. Life is amazing!"
