I had a baggie of casting gold (about $200) that I had put in my
pocket after giving a talk on jewelry to high school students.
Well, I did the laundry and into the hot dryer and you can guess
the rest. After taking the entire dryer apart, we recovered
about $175.00 worth.

I have really enjoyed hearing about the spacey things that
people have done, except of course, the painful things. This has
nothing to do with the studio, where I still seem to be doing
allright, it’s the rest of my life that seems to be confusing
for me. Yesterday it was very cold here (-20 wind chill) so I
went out to start my car, which sits outside, because I hadn’t
used it in a few days. I did this at 6pm. At 12:30 when I got
into bed I heard an odd noise… I forgot to turn off the
car and it was still running. Is 42 too young for this kind of
memory loss? Maybe those chemicals in the studio are having an
effect I hadn’t thought of.

Deb, how many things are you balancing in your life? Think of
all the details that we think we should remember each day. Family
concerns, calendar dates, food, travel connected to all of these
concerns, and very focused detail work. It?s a wonder our heads
are still attached to our shoulders.

No Deb, 42 is not too young. This can start at 35, it did for
me. I’m over 50 now and last week, while driving and talking
with a friend on the subject of suddenly realizing you can’t
remember where you are or where you’re going we realized we’d
gone 10 miles in the wrong direction, north instead of south.
She blamed me for not cueing he in (she was driving), I blamed
her for not paying attention. Oh well, we had a good laugh. I
could blame it on the chemicals, but I wasn’t a jeweler at 35
so I’m hoping this is a somewhat common occurrence for mankind
---- and if it isn’t ---- DON’T TELL ME! I’ll be happy in my
ignorance and dottiness.
