    Fortunately, being a little forgetful is not Alzheimers.

    Not being able to find your car keys is one thing; having them in your hand and not being able to figure out what they are is something else entirely.

    It is bloody awful frustrating when your spouse hides thing on you, though...

    Heck, I'm 23 and just yesterday forgot my wallet when the wife and I went for an outing. Got about a mile down the road and realized it, so I turned around and went back. As I got out she told me to grab her sunglasses and water bottle. So I went up and grabbed her sunglasses and water bottle, walked out and closed the door. I was about to lock it when I got the overwhelming feeling I'd forgotten something, and then it clicked that I still hadn't grabbed my wallet.

    I pulled up to a traffic light on a motorcycle a few years ago, stopped, and as the bike began leaning precariously....remembered that I needed to put my feet down.

    Old

    When you get old, the memory is the second thing to go.
    I forgot what the first is.....

    How totell when a man is too old:
    When he looks at some sweet young thing, and forgets why....

    I have dropped my cell a few times without realizing it. Once, a nice young man found it, and called the numbers in the speed dial. One was my wifes cell. We got it back and handsomely rewarded him.
    I was in another city 1400 miles from home.
    I bought a much better holster for it with a snap and velcro safety strap.

    I like a joke a read in readers digest:
    "I was in a night club in Newark.
    A man bent over and his gun fell out.
    All the other patrons were checking their coats to see if the gun was theirs"

I had unloaded it and cleaned it the weekend before I went on the trip and had never reloaded it!!!!!!!! Since I leave it loaded (usually) my old timers had kicked in and I forgot I had unloaded it. I carried a perfectly good EMPTY gun the whole dern weekend! I kept thinking of "what if I had to use it"!

    What was I saying?
    I can relate.

    The other day I was running around to a couple stores, grabbed my 642. When I got home, I noticed it was empty. I had been practicing draws and dry fires the previous day and forgot to reload it.

    At my age, I'm getting a slight case of dementia myself. I don't like all the aches and pains in my joints. I especially don't like having to take 1/2 a Viagra just to take a pee pee...

    My senior moment from yesterday: I had to go to Home Depot yesterday to pick up some electrical connectors for some repairs I was doing on my daughters truck. When I get there and get out of the Jeep I realized I had 2 different shoes on my feet! Ooooops!
