I can remember a time when I knew all my friends phone numbers by heart. Could even recite the Pledge of Allegiance without hesitation. And bring me a great wine as a gift….never forget the name or varietal of it because I bought it for everyone I knew as dinner party additions. But now?? HA!! I join the ranks of many by forgetting that I just recently bought mayonnaise when I open the pantry and realize…I actually put the last mayonnaise in there instead of the fridge. Yep…the times they are a changing and the memory is slipping…but just a little. 🙂

Thank the dear Lord for cell phones with a camera, because the mind just isn’t what it used to be. I find myself enjoying a wonderful wine and then can’t remember what the heck I had! A couple of the wineries I have visited recently provided a tasting sheet for taking notes, which I greatly appreciated, because I could then go back and remind myself what I liked about each one and purchase them online if I failed to purchase at the time of tasting. But recently, one of my “young uns” said something so brilliant and simple (and yes, so annoying and “know it all’ish)…”Geez…if you like it…just take a picture with your phone so you don’t forget it!

Bless her little heart……
