A Happy New Year, Through My Starkey Hearing Aids

I recently had cataracts removed from both eyes. Wow! I simply didn’t know how muddled my world had become, how much I was missing!

Gratefully, the answer is, “No.” Of course, if there’s something I don’t want to do, that’s a different story. I can (and do) just take out my hearing aids 😉 But I want to… [Read More]

I Am Not Deaf. I Just Misheard.

I recently had a house guest and was more conscious of the humor that marks the difference between what I hear, without my hearing aids, and what was actually said.  And frankly, what I hear is often much more interesting 😉   Examples of why people mistakenly think I’m deaf when I just mishear.
