I continually thank God for the fact that I paid attention to warnings about hearing damage when I was a kid. This was back in the '60s, during the advent of the "louder is better" amplified rock music. I have always been a "peace and quiet" kind of guy, and am blessed to have maintained my hearing.

It is gratifying when our music at church (contemporary) hurts my ears. I take that to mean that my ears are still healthy and sensitive. I just step out into the lobby when it becomes uncomfortable.

At the indoor range where I normally shoot, I double up with plugs and muffs. Recently, I forgot to insert the plugs, and shots with muff only were uncomfortable. Another good sign! Of course, I quickly stepped out of the range area.
