I keep a magnifying glass handy and use it frequently. When I was little I would tease my grandmother for her rather large magnifying glass collection spread all through her house. She’s likely in heaven having the last laugh.

Us too. We have one credit card that pays us cash for using it and paying it off. We only have one card for the sake of “the family bookkeeper.” (DH) We use credit cards, debit cards and cash.

I hold on to things going up and down stairs


I avoid getting down on my knees, unless there's something close by, that I can haul myself back up with.

Other than that I'm doing okay for 64.
