    I had this great thing to say but I can’t remember…..oh, well.
    My stepmother used to say that memory loss isn’t that big a problem because it doesn’t bother you for that long.

    Ma’s plan reminds me of some old guidebooks I read,
    from 100 years ago when life was simpler


    (And NO, thank you very much… I did NOT buy them new.)


    Follow the broken picket fence about half a mile, and turn left at the road by the old apple tree…. drive past Bryson’s pasture with two mules in it….


    And you’ll see the pebble driveway with the pink rose bushes.


    It never occurred to anyone back then that one day the fence might be mended or the tree chopped down to put an apartment building there.


    Same way Ma assumes the same cars will be next to hers after 5 hours of trying on shoes and eating Cinnabons.

    And Mikie…
    the best thing about Alzheimer’s is meeting so many new people.

    All that said….
    I am the worst at remembering where I parked.


    In fact I try to always park in the same area when I go to certain places so I have less of the lot to search for my car.


    I’ve always driven rather old station wagons…. like half the population here.


    When mine was a pale gold Taurus, I was always walking up to the wrong one.
    At least there aren’t as many Saturns.

    …Or when you ask for directions out in the boonies and get answers like: Go down past where the brick church used to be and turn left at the apple tree they cut down last year, etc.

    My 2004 Focus is not hard to find at some of the stores where I shop, but the things hanging from my mirror make it easier (a thing make of wood and wire as American Eagle with the pendant from a crystal flag pin that the pin broke off when new, but still sparkles) between the shape (seen even from distance in sillouette) and the sparkle, I find it quickly.

    Too bad that idea doesn’t always work. Once it took me a half an hour to try to find my car at the mall. All it got me was exercise and angry. lol

    Just printed my boarding pass and will be home by dinner time; only good thing is the weather (high of 81 there and 13 here). My poor darling is fixing everyone else’s heat (but freezing while he does it). He IS very dedicated to his work (one of many things I love about him).

    Always! Right after you tell them you have never been here before, they ask, “You know where Mr. Smith’s store used to be?”

    I always remember where my car was when I was at Wal Mart last week.
    It doesn’t work so well here today, at Food City.

    Now that I’m going back to my PC (not his as I’m now using) I’ll go back to our photo as my avatar. I thought he might be disturbed about his photo appearing with my comments (as if I were using his identity). He only uses PC for very basic things that I or others have shown him.

    I originally set up the customer data base that he now has in a proper program. THAT was way back in Tandy computers where you wrote your own program ;-)
