Good to hear that you are doing so well with NOTHING but your senses now, Nucky.
My hearing aids do NOTHING for me. I've had (SLOWLY) progressive hearing loss since birth, got my hearing aids only 10 years ago. They're high-tech in-ear aids, with a telephone button that eliminates background noise, blah blah. When they clog up with wax, they act as earplugs. So I have to take them out and clean them in the middle of dinner, or in the check-out when the cashier is trying to ask me something. The battery dies at the worst moments too.

So I just don't bother to wear them now. I'm so used to having "bad" hearing, it's easier to just tell people to face me when they're talking to me so I can read their lips.

Or tell them to ENUNCIATE and speak one word at a time. They don't have to speak louder - just clearer.

I have "nichts zu sagen".

(The rulebook doesn't say that nothing has to be in English, does it?

BK. My Dear Old Dad spoke German around the Casa all Da time. I have no idea what he was saying but I knew it was more than NOTHING. I knew what to do based on his tone also. German is such a beautiful language when you're a little kid listening to your Dad bark words at you. (NOT). But he was the boss and a good guy. I miss him and I know he would have Loved The Villages. I like the word Hippo also. Gonna stop while I'm ahead.
