Follow up on scuba diving. Two weeks ago I had a. televideo conference with primary physician for medical approval to scuba dive. Monday I must undergo a stress to make sure I am physically fit for scuba diving the doctor reminded me of my excess weight and not being overall good shape.You're looking at senior moments the wrong way. It's not about loss, instead, it is about reinvention. Us old dogs have much to offer with years of wisdom and experience. Don't be afraid to take risks especially now as a senior. Life is an adventure, and one must live to the fullest no matter what your age may be. As a matter of fact, I am 65 years old and Wednesday I am meeting my new scuba diving instructor and at that time I will get a medical release form for my doctor to authorize.
By far, learning how to scuba dive will one great achievement
Ad came on telly about folks becoming their parents and I immediately thought of this thread. Only in our house that old adage seems to have skipped a generation. Rather than becoming his old man, my son seems to be becoming his grandfather. More soft spoken than he, but got me dad's work ethic down pat. Well, better his than mine I suppose. -As time goes by I find myself doing that more and more. Witticisms from dad I once rolled my eyes at, spewing out me own mouth!
Talk about your senior moments... hopped in the shower today with my glasses on!
I can get by without my glasses, even drive. Although I can't read the dash gauges. Eyeglasses are a tremendous asset, but quite a nuisance in the shower with the water running. Senior moment part of the equation was how long it took me to figure out what was wrong!I require my glasses because I can't see otherwise. Hell, I wouldn't be able to do anything without my glasses (including finding my glasses!)
What's ironic is that I can "switch" languages pretty much on the fly if I want to avoid someone giving me a hard time. Now I have to remember who gets an alternate language...
You really are are a bit of a polyglot. Spanish ... ok, Cat ... to be expected from you ... but then also: Gaelic, Japanese, Hebrew ...I'm a bit of a polyglot, so the languages that I use are ones that I've learned either in high school or college. I might start with a dialect of Spanish, then switch to a dialect of Japanese or Hebrew, then go with a dialect of Gaelic until I'm left alone. I've even started meowing to the local cats that I encounter (drives strangers to the point they leave me alone.)
