The Case of the Missing Fingerprints


My friend Madeline and her husband attended open house at the day care that their grandson would attend. For security they would need to be fingerprinted because access through the front door required a finger print to open the door....

Guess what???? they have no finger prints... none, nada, nary a one... Did you know that as we age our finger prints disappear?  NOW you know, when we age our fingerprints disappear. I checked, mine are gone too.

This could be an advantage if we wanted to live Off The Grid... or do murder/mayhem and not leave fingerprints. Oh Wait! does our DNA disappear????   I am contacting Baldacci and Grisham to give them a story line.

Guess what this smiley face means??? it means I got Photoshop CS5 in my desktop and created this face all by myself. Just So You Know..

I am surprised to read that our finger prints will disappear. Still i am able to believe it.

Hello Sandra!:) This is intriguing! I immediately took a large magnifying glass which I keep on my desk to see for myself, and sure enough there was only the faintest trace of any lines. Only the little finger on my left hand has a slight whorl. It's amazing what you find out Sandra,:)) The fingerprint art was amusing and some were really imaginative and artistic, I think I'll give it a whorl,...with my little finger of course!!:)) Have a great day!;)

In South Africa, they take your thumb prints when you apply for an Identity document... my mom ran a swimming club for decades... and her thumb prints 'washed' away... unfortunately, the DNA stays...

How interesting. When John and I first married, I did a lot of crafts with a hot glue gun and I joked that I was losing my fingerprints! Little did I know it is true. Love the cute art!

Are you serious? Okay, I gotta go check my prints. I'll be back in a bit....Okay, I'm back. My prints are still with me....tho somewhat less detailed than years ago. Hmmmm.

I did find out I have a sliver in my left thumb tho!! Couldn't even feel it 'til I check my prints under the magnifying glass.

Madi and Mom said...

Hi Sandra, I did not know our fingerprints disappear! The fingerprint art is cute! I know you will be having fun with the Photoshop!

Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

Cranberry Morning said...

Wow! Next time the 7-11 is robbed, we'll know who to check first! LOL
Have a great week, Sandra. Grandson here last week, family here the past weekend just left today. It was wonderful, and next weekend we have another family birthday party. My goodness, when it rains it pours! :-) xo

I had NO idea, and I can't believe no one already used it in a detective story...?! Surely literature must be full of old criminals??? (Looking at mine I still seem to have them but maybe they have faded... I've not tried it lately with ink...)

Ginny Hartzler said...

So glad you got Photoshop! This means more fun for all of us! My DIL does this fingerprint art with the grandkids, it is so cute! NO senior prints??? Unbelievable!!! So what age o they start to disappear? I still have mine. I had to be fingerprinted a couple years ago. I had to come back because they had to do it twice, so maybe that means that mine have started to fade?

photowannabe said...

Fascinating...so much about us fades as we get older or in my case...just plain old..(:0)
When I did a lot with VBS at church we used to do fingerprint art. It was always a fun project.
I can't wait to see all of your new creations now that you're all set with photoshop 10.
Have a terrific Monday.

Haha....I discovered that I had no fingerprints years ago when I became a licensed social worker. They really had to work hard to get anything to show up with the old fashioned ink pad method. I'm sure it's all done digitally and more sophisticated now. If we have no fingerprints when we get older I wonder if that is because we have spent a lifetime "worked our fingers to the bone"as the saying goes!!

carolann said...

I sure have enough finger prints for you and you and you. Hey maybe I am not old to lose my prints. Ha-ha. You think.

I know though when I have to have blood work done. They have a hard time finding my veins. Once they get in.

It keeps a coming good flow. Those containers fill up in know time.

Mevely317 said...

Seriously?!?!?! That's troubling, in a way.
Oh, you know the way my mind runs to True Crime. ..... As she sits, studying her fingertips.

Years ago I had to go downtown Tampa to be fingerprinted for my concealed weapons permit. Wonder if I shouldn't let them know they can delete me, now that I'm OLDEN.

A Quiet Corner said...

Wait a minute...I open my phone with a fingerprint and it works..wonder why? Glad you got another program to enhance your creativity...:)JP

Lois said...

I did not know that. Mine seem to still be intact!

Gail said...

At least maybe my finger prints will go before my mind does.

Kim@stuffcould.... said...

No I did not know our fingerprints disappear! I cannot even see if I have mine lol. You did some creative work again lol

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Now this fact does leave lots of room for my imagination to run wild...like seniors not needing gloves to do heists!

pattisjarrett said...

I had no idea! No ID? Oh yes, DNA. We'll have to wear gloves if we're going to get into mayhem. Love the fingerprint art. CS5! Girl! You are movin' on up!
