Default Misplaced my Glasses

Out in the B2 coupe yesterday and now can't find my reading glasses, now have to ware two sets of older glasses at the same time to do anything apart from driving, I am so pucked off,
the saying " Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional. " dose not deal with loss of memory or where the hell I have put my glasses.

Been there done that, looking for a 10mm spanner and it is in your pocket, feel like a right old fart now with loosing my glasses, old age dose not come on its own.

You're not old Colin, i take things off my car and have to ask where it came from if it's off more than a day
I also put things in such safe places they never get found again and i'm not old either, they will turn up in the end so don't beat yourself up about it, look at the funny side like i always try to even if it can get me into trouble

As a rule of thumb I take photos of any parts I take to bits, only if I can find the phone and can work it.

You gotta laugh at ageing otherwise it will depress you.

Saw a programme on Centenarians a couple of days ago. Although I have become familiar with what awaits us all having observed most of my family fade away, the programme was really depressing. Assuming your health doesn't totally debilitate your quality of life, the secret to aging is not to do it alone.....

And what will happen to my C3?

Colin, I can fully empathise, it's like you were describing me perfectly !!

Always looking for whatever tool I happen to have my a*se on while sitting on the garage floor.
At work, I have a clipboard with my name on it. Guys in the warehouse return it to me at least twice a week!!!

You are not alone, trust me.
Now if you only had a pair of glasses to put on while you hunted for your glasses...............
