So, how's your memory these days....

Are you as sharp as a pin, or do you find yourself forgetting things that you really should know?

We all suffer a degree of memory loss as the years roll on, but it happens to some more than others. I readily admit to forgetting names on occasion, and it can be embarrassing. I met an old client at the airport one day, and chatted to her for five minutes before her name came back to me. I think I got away with it, but I was panicking slightly. I forget the names of actors; my wife and I went to see a film recently. I was telling my daughter about it the next day, and do you think I could remember that it was Judy Dench in one of the lead parts?

I'm not alone, apparently What about you (whatever your name is)?

**I'll put something down,

knowing exactly where I left it I go back there for it and it will be gone.**

You are not alone, just buy a relacement and it will rematerialise moments after you have the new one.

lotvic, if you had bought another pair you would have found the originals in a few minutes.

bumpkin, I was about to do just that, I was cussing to myself and deciding which shop would be best to get them from... lo and behold 10 mins later they materialised in a cupboard when I was getting something else out.

They must have known you were serious about replacing them then:-))

  bumpkin 20:19 17 Mar 2015

An unusual phenomenon though as they do not usually re-appear until you have paid for new ones. You got lucky this time.

I think they were embarrassed by the publicity on the 'net ;p

Probably why the are called pinking shears:-)

I had this problem before I had my Cataracts done, which got worse as they got worse. No problem now with my new 'Bionic' eyes.

I was going to post on this thread the other day - but I went into another forum and forgot all about it.
