What's more embarrassing than hanging around the neck is when they are sitting on top of your head. :roll:

With me it's keys, I can never find my keys. Somebody must be moving them after I put them down, it's the only explanation.

I wear specs, but cannot use them when I'm doing close up stuff like working on vehicles and computers, etc. I mislaid a pair a while back at the house and still haven't found them to date.

I've done the very same thing. That’s why I wear contacts now. The problem now is I go to do something and get to the garage and forget WHY I had come to the garage. I stand there with the deer in the headlights look then walk back in the house where the wife chides me for forgetting why I had gone to the garage in the first place. It hits me WHY and I head back out. Enroute to getting or doing what I had gone there for in the first place I see something out of place and put it away. When I am doing that I notice something else I had forgotten to do so I get busy doing that. In the end I end up NOT doing what I had originally went to the garage to do, do a half a dozen other things and flat forgot why I had gone out there to begin with. I walk back in the house and the wife is sitting there with a big grin on her face because I was supposed to bring a screwdriver back in with me, she knew it, and I am empty handed. GETTING OLD S U C K S ! ! ! ! But old age and treachery will out do youth and exuberance every time.

I worked it out - I never take them off except to shower or sleep. Either time they are on my vanity if not on my face. After my wife had a brain tumor removed years ago, she had issues with loosing things, short term memory issues, etc. We went to a psychologist to discuss resolving the issues. She told us "never move anything" and that is what we do now, though some things still get lost as we forget where we always put things. ;-]

This is a story I'm sure somebody else can relate to. I was in a tool store shopping and browsing. Went to leave and couldn't find my glasses. Went back inside the store and retraced my steps. Looked on the floor, the shelves, went everywhere I'd been looking. They weren't to be found. I gave up and decided they were probably gone forever. Returned to the truck and strapped myself in, looked into the rearview mirror. Yeah you know the punchline. They were on top of my head!

Wow, I do not feel bad now guys, thx! I have only been wearing glasses for the last 4-5 years....but they are trifocals. So I went golfing today, and in the NW you learn to golf in the rain. You also learn either to keep your glasses dry (don't I wish) or not wear them......so smart me, I left them home. I had to go to Home Depot to get some "stuff" and I swear the directions on the back of cement caulking is so small, I need a microscope, but my glasses were at home, so I was doing that "Stretch your arm out as far as it can go so you can read the dinky print" thing.

DAMN!!!! I hate getting old, and I am only 48.

I learned a lot about eyes when I was diagnosed with cataracts in both. I had the lens replaced with plastic ones, and my eyes adjusted (by the surgeon) - one is good for distance, and the other for closer work - but I have to concentrate to work out which is which. However, I no longer wear spectacles, except sunglasses.

I have been advised by a medical memory specialist to take Vitamins B, C, and D (with D being the most important) for memory issues. I have noticed an improvement since commencing in late August.

My contacts work the same way. My right contact is for distance and my left is for close up. Its a bit to get used to and I still end up closing one eye to see if the other is working right, but I'm kind of used to it now.
