Some Times with Age Does Come Wisdom

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

There are so many times that I want to respond to some of the "Professional forums", but I can't because I'm a Home Expert. 

I don't get paid (with money but with love) to do what I do,

but I feel like one of the Pros, at least most of the time. 

Some times with age does come wisdom.

I've often replied to a thread in the Professional fora, and then realised that I'd posted on a thread where I was not allowed - had to go back and delete my comments!

 

Sometimes, it's really hard to bite your tongue, isn't it?!

I have to agree that sadly, wisdom comes with age sometimes....

I have yet to meet Miss Clairol but I'm sure kgirl you and I are close to the same age...

 

Try working in a kitchen being uhmmmghump and your co workers are early twentysomethings... that is an exercise in toungue biting let me tell you!! 

 

Now I am off to spend some time with the other two men in my life...  Mr Kenmore and Mr Janome... aka my sewing machine and serger!

So wait, what ?

kuan are you saying that as a non-professional I, the Home Expert, can start a thread in the pro-forums?

I understood that that was off limits to us

then I can start another one, same topic-title in the non-pro section and give my two cents there...

I think this is great idea. I can't tell you how many good ideas and recipes I have gotten from housewives and non pro's . If a day goes by and I do not learn something new, I consider it a wasted day. Also in work they call me" Poppy ," I  think I have you all beat, I just turned 70.

At work I do not tell the younger fellows what to do(I am not the chef there) I just say to them ""Want me to show you an easier way to do that""

The chef approves of me doing this.  Most of them are receptive.   Its a 2 way thing.

I would take love over money but you have to have money to survive.

I once asked my father a question and used the since you're older you have wisdom with it.

He said. "What makes you think that just because I'm older it makes me smart."



Words to live by.

I have and will.

God rest his soul.
