My mom (who is 88) does this too. It absolutely drives me crazy. I know she is getting more forgetful but generally she reasons well but sometimes she will says she did X or didn't do X when the facts are different. Or, she will suddenly remember facts that -- well -- aren't facts. She recently visited us and was complaining that I hardly ever call her, maybe once every month or two. I actually pulled my cell phone bills and showed her that I average a call a week (usually an hour long).... Then... no, I won't totally hijack your thread....

But, yes, it does make you want to just bang your head on the desk....
