If you never hear from me again you'll know why and in that case I just wanted to let you know I've loved you all like brothers and sisters.....even the Bride of Dracula.
I'm sure the gray hair count doubled after teaching my two youngest to drive. In the end, they did alright and I survived. I started them off in a really big, empty parking lot to get them used to the car and braking etc. It was still a bit hairy on the road.

I never even knew he knew those words.
At least in the UK most people have at least one course of driving lessons. In NJ they only have 4 hrs...then they hit the road with no 'L' plates and can drive on the freeways

As there is not a "What makes you think you are developing Alzheimers" thread; I will put this here.

Ready to go to work, I walk out and no car, OK I must have (for some inexplicable reason) put it in the garage. Not in the garage. I drove the little one to school today, it is either still at the school or stolen. I walk to the school still not sure if it is there, until I am on top of it, as it is hidden by a truck.

We as a rule walk the 10 minutes to school, but today we were running a little late, so drove, but so accustomed to the walk am I, I walked back, not stopping for a moment to remember that I had driven there, and a few hours later, not remembering that I had walked back.

My friend's husband took their daughter into school and drove home. When he opened the back door to get their youngest out of the child seat she wasn't there. He'd left her at school. When he went back to collect her the teacher was not amused.

As I appear to be losing my mind, I certainly do not have one of my own, so I have done as I was told. Here

Eyes, or one-track mind?

Still, you could have read it as "prehensile dementia".
