    I need to start riding with a pencil and paper....

    I think of these great threads to start but by the time I get home I can't remember what they were.

    Well, at least you remember that you had a thought. Your half way to actually remembering what the thought was!

    Leave yourself a phone message....often that's all that saves me from forgetting dentist's appointments, errands, make a phone call, etc. Sally Field (cycling interests unknown) said the older she gets the more lists of things to do she makes. Of course, I often make grocery lists and then leave them on the kitchen counter as I leave for the store. On the brighter side, at least you're still thinking of something.

    Hmmm, short term memory loss. What could possibly cause that? I think that I have the same thing.

    Incidentally, my wife and I and about 800 of our closest friends in your town last weekend for the Midwest Tandem Rally. We absolutely loved it but I can't recall why!

    This topic just brought to mind... Putting this in light of Nermal's signature, maybe....

    Some day we'll write down a great idea for the forums and plow into the back of a car.

    Just saw what you need at Office Max today. Wrist bands that you write on to remind yourself. Didn't even say anything about 50+ on the package.

    I use the memo feature on my phone all of the time. When I park at the airport I leave myself a message 'Hibiscus garage 4E'. I stay in so many hotels that I forget my room number some times as well.

    Ditto.

    Check your cell phone for a voice recording function. I use it a lot - someone gives me an email address, I spell it out on my phone recorder. Things I remember that I know in 10 seconds I will forget - etc.

    Heck, I am still learning about things I can do with my phone. So far, I haven't discovered the "print money" function - but I know it must be there somewhere!

    Yeah she's so forgetful she has to keep writing notes to remind herself "they like me, they really like me!".
