I seem to lose track more these days of everything I do. My thoughts sneak in to look around, then bid my mind “adieu”. And more and more each passing day, I'll come up with a plan. Like “in-laws coming over" day, it spun around and ran! My friends told me when I was young, I had a steel-trap mind. But, like a door-less armored truck, the truck was pilfered blind! I try to save my straying thoughts the moment that they linger which brought me to a new impasse: “Ten strings around my finger?”
