    He’ll be okay as long as she doesn’t send him to the holiday decor and clown school store.

    Well, saying that you forgot is better than telling her that you were using it to swat flies.

    Earlier today (or was it yesterday), I couldn’t find my lap desk. I looked all over for it, without getting up from my chair, of course. I was just about to get up when I found it on my lap.

    Maybe he knows, but he doesn’t want to tell her which part of his body he was scratching.

    Was Earl planning on a grill-out for dinner tonight (assuming he and Opal have an outdoor grill)?

    Today, I walked into a room and remembered why I went there. It was the bathroom, but I am counting that as a win.

    I went out to the shed to get a tool, and forgot what it was. I returned to the house and remembered, but when I returned to the shed, I found that I had locked the keys inside. My friend’s comment; Mission accomplished!

    Garfield’s memory isn’t what it used to be. Sometimes he forgets things.

    I was told that technically speaking what he is holding is a turner (more specifically a slotted turner) instead of being a spatula. Practically speaking, I think practically everyone I know would call it a spatula.

    My boss’s secretary handed him a ticket to Washington DC. A few hours later he called, “Why am I here?” He was responsible for a budget of tens of millions.

    I seem to be in the midst of good company. I’ve taken to writing myself notes, which doesn’t help as well as it sounds. You have to remember to take the note with and remember that you have the note. It can be funny if you keep a good attitude.

    I can walk into a room and do two or three things, leave and then remembered the reason I had gone to the room….which was not one of the things I had accomplished there.

    Yup, God’s way of making sure you get exercise. Yesterday, I walked to the shed three times to get one item, and now I can’t find the stupid thing.

    I know that I needed something, and I remember where it was when I last saw it, but I can’t find it where I know I left it. It speaks to a need for organization.

    Pearl, check the stove. Earl was making a grilled cheese sandwich, the phone rang, after he answered it, he realized it was time for ’’Let’s Make a Deal’’ and sat down to watch.

    And, there goes the Smoke Alarm again.
