Seniors And Memory

Seniors And Memory

As I get older, I’m finding that my recall skills are not as quick as they were a few years ago. Now I have to write notes or use other means to help my memory. I think I have good hearing, however; lately my voice recognition and understanding what people are saying, on the telephone especially, is more difficult.  With certain people I have to cup my hand around the receiver to understand what people are saying. My wife has…

Information On Gout

Information On Gout

I have suffered from gout, for various periods, over the past twenty years. From my research, the information on gout on the internet, is some what contradictory.  Many of the articles may be written by people who are selling products for financial purposes. That’s just my opinion.

The Noxzema Girl

The Noxzema Girl

Can you still buy noxzema? A few months ago we were invited to a surprise 70th birthday dinner for a friend. Her husband and their two daughters had arranged the celebration at a restaurant that is well known for good food. It was to be a complete surprise and it was. When the friend came through the door she was floored to see about 70 friends and family who had come to celebrate with her. Opportunity was given, after the…

Did I Get Scammed

Did I Get Scammed

I’m normally wary of people who call with offers that are unbelievable or from a person saying that they are from Revenue Canada. I hate scammers. They are fraudsters and prey on peoples emotions. The question I have is did I get scammed from a person saying they were from Revenue Canada. I knew that there was a possibility that I would owe monies on a tax return. There was a question whether or not I would have to pay…

Searching The Obituaries

Searching The Obituaries

A little frustrated on this post as I forgot to publish and lost a few paragraphs that I had written. I was deleting a word and deleted what I had written. A senior’s moment? For me searching the obituaries of our local funeral homes is right up there with the local and national news and checking the sports scores.  We live in an area where we have many family relations, where both my wife and I attended school and where…

I’m Suffering From Gout

I’m Suffering From Gout

Since my first attack I’m amazed at the number of us who are suffering from gout. How well I remember my first attack. I was in my early forties and I woke this morning with an agonizing pain in my big toe. It was red and it was swollen. My first thought was that I had broken the toe but I couldn’t recall any instance where I had struck it. My visit to the doctor’s office confirmed that I had…

I Feel Like I’m Dying With The Flu

I Feel Like I’m Dying With The Flu

Many of us, living in The Northern Hemisphere, have heard or have said “dying with the flu”. I know I have said it many times. A few of my memories. I was always a pretty good actor especially with my mother. The weather, where we live, can be damp and cold in the fall, spring and winter. As children we wern’t blessed with the best of foot ware or warm clothing. Most of my clothes was handed down from my…

Seniors Driving Safely

Seniors Driving Safely

Today I was really impressed with driving habits of a lady who must have been in her eighties. On the other hand, I was flabbergasted by the way another lady. who would have been in her late sixties, was driving. For some reason I’m into the habit of looking for seniors driving safety habits. First of all let me detail the driving of the lady who frustrated me. I think I knew her but I only saw her from behind….

One Of The Baby Boomers Generation

One Of The Baby Boomers Generation

We are the baby boomers generation. I was born in 1948 so I fall into the bracket that was born between 1946 and 1964. This is a photo taken when I was 58 yers old. I have a photo that was taken when I was around two years old. The clothing that I was wearing was made from one of my older sisters winter coats. Those were the days of hand me down clothes, boots and shirts where the collars…
