Brain Strain





       Image result for calvin and hobbes memory loss

Exercise class was exhausting this morning.

          Oh sure, the quads got a workout as we kicked our way to each end of the pool and my left shoulder’s a bit sore from dragging my foam weight through the water.

          It was the mental workout that almost did me in.

          Debbie mentioned the reaction she had to her second shingles shot.

          Call my doctor and see if I need a booster.

          Diane spoke about finding some long-lost family papers.

          Gotta get our own papers back to the safety deposit box.

          Vicky, our instructor, pointed out the efficacy of exercise - that it’s like an oil change for the body.

          Had My Guy remembered to schedule that long-overdue oil change for his car?

          Shingles, safety deposit, oil change, I repeated as we did our leg lifts.

          Shingles, safety deposit, oil change, as I dressed in the locker room.

          Shingles, oil change, - - - - -  I was down to 2 out of 3 as I pulled into the garage at home.

          Fortunately, by not thinking about it, the missing item eventually floated back into my head.

Time and Geography


I’ve decided there may be a time and a place for everything, but place has a distinct effect on time, and access to the place of a memory only makes it stronger.

Some things never go out of style


Our grandson just cruised into age 9, complete with a party of thirteen other 9 year-olds in the backyard (God bless his brave mother and father), all in a Harry Potter theme.

Insides Out


I finally made it to the gastro doctor. I’ve actually been treated by him before, but wouldn’t have been able to pick him out of a lineup if my life depended on it.

Minimal News


It's been a bit of a dry spell for the blog. I’ve been trying to make headway in book #3, so I must have used up all my cleverness there.

Bath and Bed


As I sit and type this, the sweet aroma of dog shampoo is wafting up from my tee shirt, which is drenched.
