I had a ring compressor that I couldn't find so I bought a new one BUT the old one is still lost. 

In Ye olde days in Europe folks used to put out milk and cookies for the fairies and dwarves so they wouldn't steal stuff.

I am not quite at the place where I am willing to consider myself as "older", but I am always losing things. At one point I blamed it on others, now I think it is the dead brain cells.

If I forget to do something, it is because someone forgot to tell me to do it. If they told me, then they forgot to remind me.

I can sit something down. Turn around. Walk away come back 30 seconds later and forget where I put what I put down 30 seconds ago. It's terrible.

I just tell people my brain is too full of crap and has no room for anything else.

I  call that instantaneous memory loss a butterfly. Like, "that idea/name just butterflied away".  I can remember perfectly where something was in the old shop almost thirty years ago, but can't for the life of me remember where I put it in the new shop last week.  As my father used to say, "this aging ain't what it's cracked up to be"

   My 96 year old mother says getting old is not for sises.   Don

Yesterday I reached for the TV remote that sits right next to my chair. It wasn't there. I looked around. I looked down around the chair. I felt around in the chair. I looked on the other side of the chair. I started it over again. I got up and looked in the kitchen. . . . . 

 

I came back to my chair and ​There it sat!​      Right where it was supposed to be. D**n I hate my brain!!! Don't ever ask me to testify in court.

I have a 16 month old baby girl who loves remotes. She can hide that thing in places you'd never think to look.

She will have you thinking you are losing your mind.

The worst thing of memory loss was when I worked as a maintenance machinist and would turn from the lathe to my tool box, a distance of maybe 6', for something and forget what it was that I was after.

I don't and I am!

   I would go down to goodwill and buy her several. Then mark them in such a way as she could recognize which ones were hers. Don

The problem with writing notes for later reminders is finding that dang note pad again!
