As some of you know I have been gradually replacing many of the LPs I sold a LONG time ago, plus getting more recent ones by my favourite artists.

I used to have about 6-800 or so LPs and can remember them all, the common and the obscure.  Well, except I can't remember if I ever had Venus And Mars .  I had a lot of Paul's early albums, but I don't know if I had that one.  I have listened to it a lot, but either I had it or my sister did and I borrowed it off her.  For the life of me I can't remember which it was, but just for that one album out of the many.

Anyone else have any odd little missing memory bits?

Every hour of every day. But that's just me getting older.

I used to remember EVERYTHING. Now, not so much. I think I've given up trying because everything is just becoming so fast paced and always in flux. Is it more now about being able to figure things out instead of remembering how to do them? Microsoft moving functions around with each release is one example. I think things like that, and like having to change passwords so often for so many sites, just gets our older memories garbled up to where we can't recall them properly. Or, as Zig said about himself, perhaps I'm just succumbing to the ravages of aging.
