LOL my luvver..
If I had a penny for every time I've heard that in the last 40 odd years I've been wearing hearing aids (and the years before that when I was deaf but didn't have them.) I'd be a very wealthy person

Thanks all! I'm still smiling today - I made my first phone call to a friend in more than 2 months today.. it was luvverly!
A little ditty I wrote back in 1975.. for your amusement (although the original was a little more blunt and colourful!)

I have the same problem, I'm not completely deaf, but without my hearing aids I'm very hard of hearing, we had a safety talk about a couple of years ago at the building I live in on fire safety. Tey offered free supplying of s[pecial smoke alarms for the hard of hearing, so I got one. I now have a vibrating alarm under my pillow, and a loud siren and a flashing light unit installed, all done for free as well. Cant sleep with the aids in as they make a loud whistling sound.

Looks like maybe a damsel fish of some sort, and damsel fish lets just say are not the friendliest fish in the sea, especially the little blue ones with yellow tail, put one of those 2-3" terrors into an aquarium and it will have all the fish on one side, small but mighty.

Hell, I could not stop laughing. My youngest daughter posted this conversation with my 7 year old grandson today.


While sitting at the table eating cake with Colby...
Me: This is really good cake eh?
Colby: So the price of oil went down they said
Me: Pardon?
Colby: The price of oil went down by like a dollar and a half from $70
Me: And you thought you would like to randomly share that information with me now?
Colby: I saw it on the news today
I mean... who doesn't think about the price of oil while eating cake?


I guess it's to be expected from a kid who could count to 100 forwards and backwards when he was 2 and could read when he was 3. Boy has an inquiring brain.

This is silly but it made me smile.
I knew our County District Attorney had retired last year but I hadn't taken much notice who had been voted in to replace her until reading a local news story.
Our new DA is called Tom Selleck Yep, Magnum has changed careers!

I am sure he gets all kinds of corny comments
