For most people for get me nots are a flower. If you are plus fifty they’re sticky notes, scraps of paper, and any other way to remind you – Not to forget!

I remember in school having a button on my backpack that said, of all the things I miss, I miss my mind the most! Little did I know that simple saying would be true! Losing your ability to remember is insidious – You barely realize it, then you can’t remember when you could remember. First you do word searches, not the puzzles, but mental searches. You stand there with your eyes rolled into the back of your head like you’re searching a dark closet until you find the word. If you’re with a group of fifty somethings word search turns into Jeopardy. When you know the meaning but can’t recall the word and your friends assist with the word search. This sometimes can be played out as twenty questions or charades. If you can’t remember the word or meaning, but  you can recall something similar.

There are all sorts of supplements and vitamins that can assist with this type of memory issue. The only problem is remembering to take them! So far the best thing that’s come along for the” loss generation” is the iphone 4 s! You ask it to remind you to do something, schedule your appointments,or how to spell a word and voila it does it for you! Thank you Apple! The only problem is forgetting where you left your iphone!


Which reminds me, did I charge mine?
