    Well, I do believe my brain cells have finally "bought the farm"! Can't believe it, I found the missing Coleman 242NL!!! No one took it, I put it in a cardboard box! This is getting serious, too much breathing in gas and kero fumes! I guess I'll just have to give up lantern collecting! Yeah, right....;):whistle:](*,):mrgreen:
    Is anyone else losing their minds, or is it just me?....
    HELP....

    Hey, @george you too? Since my lovely wife passed I've suffered with memory loss and its only after 18 months its coming back. I'm sure my new lady has something to do with it coming back. So at 69 years old the brain is a bit slower, but hey, it gets there ............. eventually. :shock:
    I just prefer to think that misplacing things is just a game of 'hide and seek' that my brain has devised for my enjoyment ......... :rage:

    What I do hate is my mind making promises that my body can't keep! :roll:

    Cheers mate, its all part of growing old gracefully ....... gracefully!!! WTF !! .....

    Pete

    @AussiePete There you go, Pete! Thanks for the lift! Now I feel like I'm not along in this battle!
    Brain farts are fun!:?

    It's the joy of getting older, you keep finding things in your shed/ garage that you'd forgotten about. It's like finding it the first time all over again. The lamps that keep giving time and time again!:D/

    @george

    It’s part of the consequence of survival. I miss placed my tape measure the other day, I found it in the fridge.......

    @podbros

    That’s the rub, no idea when or how I put it there. Perhaps there’s some food stuff gently rotting away in my toolbox.....
