William's Blog...with a smile!


My memory is great...for my age!

AS we age we sometimes get selective issues.

My wife says I have selective hearing...True, but only whne needed.

My wife says I am getting forgetful.  I don't believe her.

So, am I getting forgetful?  Ponder this...


Why can I remember all the words to an 1965 song yet

when I go to the kitchen I can't remember what for!

I still have a great memory too and usually don't have to refer to my notes. Have a lovely week, William.

I can certainly relate! I think it's because the cumulative effects of trying to remember more and more as we get older hits a limit at some point. Our young adult children and teens have far fewer years of things they have to remember!

Some people can remember all of their "to do" lists, some remember the hit songs of their youth. None of us can remember all of the names, social security numbers, passwords, phone numbers, processes, instructions, etc. etc. that we have encountered and use over the course of decades. Our brains just aren't wired that way! Not to mention that we are rarely doing, or thinking about, one thing at a time in the digital age!

Fortunately, we have digital and paper note pads and calendars and that helps to keep track of things. Before you jump up to do something, even in the next room, take a moment to jot down what you are getting up to do in the next 5 to 10 minutes. That way, as your mind continues to mutli-task and think about other things you won't forget what brought you to the kitchen! Wishing you success!

Same here William. It is really amusing. I wish I could have back the years and know what I know now.

Good morning again William. I relate as well. Funny about the old songs too.

The mind is a difficult thing to understand, and why we can remember some things and not others, is beyond me.

That is funny! 

I've never seen it before, I have to print it for someone as a gift:) ( I use printable stickers, they are great:)

Also, we have memories holes in any age. For example I sometimes look hard for glasses that are on my head......truly embarrassing.
