Nev, it's a yarn, not an assessment piece for a BA ... :D

Terry you have a real talent for writing these short stories and they are worth writing for lots of reasons: it keeps your brain thinking and remembering; I enjoy reading them (double spaced or not!); they record unknown and lost stories and characters and I think that if you eventually put them all together they would make a lovely little collection. Don't stop.

Thanks Heather and Ron, it's really pleasing that you enjoy these stories.

I reckon we all must have good stories tucked away in the memory banks of the brain's filing system somewhere.
In my case the memories are usually triggered by something said or read, usually without any connection,
but for some reason they trigger a memory of certain things.
Once the mind snaps into gear I have no problem recalling the story in intricate detail,
and though the story some times happened many years before, it becomes as clear as though it happened the day before.
My wife is blessed with a great memory for names, but I've always been hopeless with them myself.

It's funny how we tuck memories away in a corner of our brain and when we have a conversation with someone or we make an effort to recall, all sorts of things come back. (Either that or we can't remember a thing and it's all made up!) :)

I reckon I have selective memory.

On things that seem important to me, or things I have a great interest in, I seem to often have near total recall.

But on what I seem to consider lesser matters I struggle at times.

I guess we're all a bit like that

Terry your brain is probably full of old stories and has no room for lesser things! :) No use wasting space!

Let's hope not Terry.. :)

I'm told that it's ok to lose your keys, it's when you don't know that you have lost them that it is a problem....or maybe if you forget what the keys are for.... :)
