Do I hear Sixty? Did I hear 60? | bonocular's Blog


My hearing.  Back in 1968 a portable stereo with the detachable speakers. They must have had 2 4 inch or 6 inch speakers on each side.  Well, I'd turn the left speaker up to about an 8 and do the same for the right. I'd queue up 3rd Stone From The Sun (Jimi Hendrix), put the speakers up to my ears and Let'er'RIP. The same for my hearing. R.I.P  As one ages, so goes the hearing....(humph!!) Now eyesight?  Did someone just mention eye sight? I didn't have my glasses on so I couldn't hear you.  It's not all that uncommon   What's really a bummer is that your eyesight gets just as poor as your hearing.  Well, for me anyway.  It's like a still life watercolor that got rained on. 
So what if I did turn 60 the other day? It's significance evades me.  As far as decades goes, it's only 6th! Why should turning 60 magically make it OK to leave the house without combing (Brushing) the hair? Heck, some days  it's even OK to leave your pants unzipped, PJ's still on and floppy slippers hanging onto your feet. Is all this the significance of sixty? Hey Aqualung!
