A good friend called me last night...

Post by Tom Bombadil on Sun Mar 27, 2011 8:34 am

...and we talked about life, family and what we had been up to for the last month or so when he blurted out if there was any particular reason I had rung him because he had a couple things to do before it got too late.

"Umm...Brent, you called me."

Dead quiet for about 3 seconds.

"Are you sure?"

"Yep"

"&#%*!"

"Hey no biggie Brent, go and do your errands before you forget them too."

"What?"

Now I want to believe he was kidding with that "What?", but it sounded pretty genuine. < grin >

So this vid is for us in this age group and what we have to look forward to.

This is priceless. My family is dealing with my mother and her memory issues. It's to the point where you start to notice your own memory lapses, misplaced keys, nameless familiar faces, ... This song hits the nail right on the head. It's good to be able to laugh at the subject. Thanks for posting it.

Rags you kill me. Now you killed my computer as the keyboard and monitor shorted everything out from the coffee sprayed over them. < grin >

gtrbill, I have misplaced things my whole life. Dad used to tell me I would lose my head if it wasn't screwed on. Finally in my late twenties I started making mental notes and developing patterns of where I would "set down" items. Funny thing is it sort of carried over to noticing where Jen would leave her things and trying to figure out if she had patterns or used some technique. She doesn't, but now I do for her. It just sort of happened. So when I see her looking for something I can usually tell her where it probably is. Weird. One new thing I absolutely love is the new keyless entry and start feature new cars have. My Prius has it and it is so very nice not worrying about darn keys anymore.

TB they make spray cans of air, now ain't that just something, a spray can of air, which we can get just by blowing out your breath with a little force to keep the dust off the keyboard and monitor. Well that is not what this is about anyway. I wanted to let you know spraying coffee on your computer and the monitor is not the best way to clean either of them. Again, you might want to think about.....what does breathing have to do with a computer anyway?
