The Last Furlong

Comments on the race of life.

Is it possible my memory is better since the lightning


The only physical thing I have noticed since my lightning strike incident when I was buzzed up the leg and momentarily knocked unconscious, is that my memory seems to be better.

Is it my imagination?

I seem not to have to think so hard to find a word I want to write, remember names and words for things. Poor Mr Furlong has been my thesaurus, dictionary and prompt for many years.

We play an on-line computer game together. Sometimes our generals in battle get “intercepted”. Do you think I could EVER remember that word? Never.

But look – intercepted! – I remember….intercepted, intercepted.

This is just one of the little things I have noticed.

I hope it lasts…..

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

  1. That’s some good news, maybe your inadvertent ECT has opened up some old disused pathways. Looking on the bright side this may be the best thing that’s happened to you for a long time.
    Hopefully the positives will be more than the negatives. Fascinating. Just off to stick my fingers in the plug hole………………….
