Memory...Gone!

I tried to shoot the moon Saturday night...not too good but the point is I tried.  I stay so isolated I heard about this special moon on someone's blog.  I really keep up with current events!

Then I got this picture.  Who knows how but I thought, Kinda artsy, I'll keep it. Yes, that is the moon in the middle.  Maybe all these circles were my guardian angels.  Goodness knows I need the help.
As the evening progressed I discovered I could answer many of the questions some shows now post between commercials so you will keep watching to discover the correct answer.  Where does all this useless knowledge come from???  I've discovered I knew ten million people in the US owned pianos, that Cairn terriers continually change colors, and the record weight of a Blue Catfish..  Could you tell me please when this sort of information might EVER come in handy.

I need to know important things like...Where are my glasses?  Where did I set my tea glass? and Where is the book I was just reading?

Ok, now I need to know how you knew all that! I'm with you on the last part. I have to have the dh call my cell phone all the time so that I can find it.

Hey - try out when Jeopardy comes to town. I wish I could have retained memory better in my life. I tell my oldest cousin - and she's about 85 - not to die because she's my memory to that small town where we grew up. Me - I can't remember yesterday.

Well, I am in worse shape than you. What special moon?? Actually I read about it on a blog this morning.

Great moon shots. I haven't mastered that night picture thing yet.

We have a running joke here.....several times during the week I have to ask for help in finding my Kindle....and my keys. At least the cell phone has the decency to respond when I call it. Never my glasses; they go on before my feet hit the floor.

You make me laugh. I found a pair f glasses in my coat pocket the other day I had been looking for them for over two weeks so just kept squinting. Yup the important stuff:)
Great shots. Love the orbs:) B

the thing is i knew none of the three things you named, and now that you told me, this time tommorrow I will still not know the answers to those 3 questions. this is not age related, i have always been unable to answer questions unless there is a choice of answers, that i can do... we don't watch commercials so i have not seen this. we DVR everythig we watch and fast forward through everything we don't want to watch... maybe that is why i don't know the answers...

I tried too to capture a photo of the largest moon we will see until August of 2014 . . . Very difficult with hazy, humidity filled sky . . . The photo job is complete . . . you don't have to remember it anymore . . . just find your glasses and your book, relax and get well . . .

Farm Girl said...

Haha I does make you wonder. I have all sorts of useless information in my brain and no button to access it when I need it. It only comes at random times.
The moon photo looks great.

Cool photos!
Crossword puzzles and trivia games - that's when you'll need to know that useless trivia.

TexWisGirl said...

you just might win a game show some day. :)

LOVE the artsy shot and all of the souls around you.

Irene said...

I know lots of trivial information, but if I were to go on a game show, my nervousness would probably block all the answers. I was a lunatic because of the super moon. It really affected me. I sure as heck am glad that's behind us now.

LindaG said...

Hahahahaha!!!!!!

I saw the big moon. Heard on the evening news it was a super moon and that was the last I thought of it. ;-)
Have a wonderful day, Gail. Hope you found what you were looking for! :-)

Ohhh, I wanted to see that moon so much but there was heavy cloud cover over here and no moon visable from where we live.
It was nice to see your photos of it.

I love the moonshots!

Willow said...

Oh you always make me grin. Those moon shots are great . Seems you just made good use of your information right here on the blog ...so Toto was constantly changing colors in Oz and here I thought in was only those horses .

Teresa Coltrin said...

Lovely moon shots. I overwork my guardian angels for sure.

The standing rule in our house is that after the third trip to the basement to get whatever it was you went there for, you just give up. You probably didn't need it anyway.

Camille said...

Huh! Go figure. Hate to disappoint but my two Cairns have remained the same color for years years and years. How boring of them. Nice moon shot.

missy said...

I had a hard time trying to get crisp shots..Too hazy..I must read my manual someday about taking those kinds of pics..

Sue said...

haha on the remembering thing...I can relate.

And I am always impressed by moon photos! They are hard to get.

=)

I love the spirits that share the farm with you! I am the same as you, have a brain stuffed with useless knowledge and details, but can't remember what I walked across the room for, and I fear it shall only get worse!
