My wife used to tell me that I had selective hearing, that I heard only what I wanted to hear. That was probably true. But it was also true that I was in the early stages of hearing loss. It happens slowly, almost imperceptibly, for the person losing his/her hearing. High registry sounds are what first go. This is why many wives accuse their husbands of "selective hearing" since female voices are in the higher register.

Over the past two years, I have had the opportunity to visit several chapters, and I’m here to tell you, we are a very friendly group of folks. It makes me proud to be your president.

At every chapter I’ve visited, people have knocked themselves out to make me feel welcome. Beyond that, I have heard many, many stories about how important Prime Timers has become to individuals. Some had given up hope that they would ever find friends who were like them. Some had given up searching for a partner. The have found those friends, and those partners, through Prime Timers.
