    When my grandson shouts in my ear, though I am not that hard of hearing. :)
    Yeah, but not when it concerns the family.

    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.

    I am concerned about passing the stress test and curious about the outcome. Trying keep positive, and so I should be for trying.

    Finding out your capabilities on dry land, seems sensible to me

    scuba diving is interesting because it is technical and somewhat strenuous. It's. not for everybody maybe that's why I want to learn

    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. -;)

    I had to "pay" The Trio extra because they kept me from drowning (I fell asleep in my bath!) At least I didn't leave the bath water running (I turn it off before it overflows by stepping in the tub before I start the water [unlike one of my upstairs neighbors].)

    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!)

    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! :D

    Next senior moment was spending an hour looking for my glasses that I'd left on the shower door rail! o_O

    Taking great care in making a shopping list. Adding to it every time I think of something else. Printing it out before going to the store. Leaving it home anyway.

    Thought for the day: At my age I have finally got it all together. But now I have no idea what I wanted it for.

    I forgot about a recall due to listeria (the item was already removed from shelves, so everything was moot.) I also forgot about a couple of pans that I purchased (luckily I had brought them in already!)

    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... :oops:

    Sometimes I realize I am speaking an alternate language to myself. I wish I understood it.

    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 :confused: to the point they leave me alone.)

    Here's a senior moment for you: My wife's car has a floor shifter. On my car it's a small lever sticking out from the dash panel. We haven't owned a car with a column mounted shift since the early 90's. Ok, so there I am today driving the wife's car trying to change gears with the wiper stalk, all the way home from the gas station. o_O
