Old age memory Loss

I guess you folks know that Marie and I are in our 80s. Right? Well, we seem to be forgetting things unless we write them down. Like we go to town for numerous errands…come home, and realize we forgot something we wanted to do. We hadn’t made a  list! Or we forgot our list we had made.

Well, this older couple, well into Old Age, were forgetting things too, if they didn’t write them down. So one day she asked her husband, “Honey, I’m going out in the kitchen. Can I bring you anything?”

He said, “yes, bring me a dish of that ice cream we bought…but write it down!”

She replied, “I can remember that, you want anything else?”

He said, “Yes, please put some chocolate syrup on it…but write it down!”

She replied, “oh Honey, I can remember that.

A short time later, she returned with a dish of scrambled eggs.

He said , “Honey, I told you to write it down…you forgot the sausage!



George and his wife, Marie, sailed professionally, chartering boats in the Bahamas, then in the Virgin Islands. They then leased an uninhabited island, Little Thatch, in the British Virgin Islands, and turned it into a small hotel. After six years, they left the island and bought a lovely beachfront property on Jost Van Dyke (BVI) where they built Sandcastle Hotel and the original Soggy Dollar Bar. George is now the author of Incredible Virgin Island Adventure: A True Story.
