Inside every older person is a younger person wondering 'What the XXXX happened?'

An observation I've made with no help from anyone but just based on my life.. the older I get the faster the train runs and the more down hill it seems to go.. I'm sure many of you have noticed that you can remember what happened 20 years ago better than you can remember what happened 2 weeks ago...or maybe its just me.. or genetic according to my dad who will soon be 89...I think this comes under what Lurose keeps calling a senior moment.. I spent almost an hour looking for my reading glasses until I passed by a mirror and saw they were clipped onto my shirt.. Talk about feeling dumb...or sometimes entering a room and forgetting why I came into the room.. so I go back out and come back , hoping that will jar my memory.. I've reached the point that being forgetful is a way of life.. and I don't know about you others but I find it forgetful, especially since at one time, I could remember everything seemingly...and now all I remember are facts that are worthless.. example...thirty years ago I lived in San Antonio, Texas.. I not only can tell you my street address but my phone number.. but I can't remember where I left my billfold the last time I changed clothes..
Soli Dee Glori... as always.. Chaz
