Nostalgia for memory

I told her that I've written up several duplicate words, forgetting to check the dictionary.

I've done much the same thing. Sometimes, when looking back at old words of the day, I'll see one that I can't place or remember. Then it turns out to be one of my suggestions. Don't I feel silly then.

More often, an old word comes to the top after a comment, and I' m surprised to find I already commented on it, even with a similar comment to what came to mind.

How old are you guys? I know Perry and I are older than dirt and the Good Doctor isn't far behind us. As time goes by we will need more and more reminders of just where we are and what we are about. We can remember the past with nostalgia, if we can remember it at all.
