so true. I am only wise because of the foolish ways I gave up.

Must we give up our foolish ways? Can’t we just be wise while maintaining them? ;c)

At times I still get as foolish as I did in my youth just because it’s damn fun.
May 3, 2015 at 7:58 PM
Yes, it is! 😀

Thank you for liking “Wildflowers.” Nice post! 🙂 I agree with you. As long as we live, I don’t think we stop being fools. There will always be something that we don’t know about that we end up learning about the hard way through experience.

And sometimes we have to experience it multiple times… sigh…
Thanks for stopping by! ;c)

You are welcome. 🙂 I agree. Sometimes life tricks us, and we end up making new versions of old mistakes.

Frankly, Sister Madly, I spend way more time being foolish than wise. I comfort myself in the fact I still have friends, even if they only keep me around to make themselves feel wiser… xx MH

I hear you there! Sometimes I think my life’s calling is to show the world how NOT to do things. ;c)

Of course no one has tasted Kraft Mayonnaise. There is only Hellman’s!
Ahhhhhhh grasshopper your wisdom grows.
Childlike can be wonderful. Childish not so much. Failure to learn an exponential difference despite having been shown the proof is the wisdom of those that look only to serve themselves.
Gotta go clean out the trunk and dust off the wings.
As ever Milady

A single experience with Mayo is all that is needed to obtain the wisdom of avoiding the stuff completely.
But sometimes you have to make a mistake several times, just to be sure it IS a mistake!

Harumph Harumph Harumph!
What’s next huh moppet? You going to come out against Bacon too?
The 3 food groups, Bacon, Sour Cream and Bacon Potato Chips and Canadian Bacon!
May 4, 2015 at 9:54 AM
I speak out against only one food indiscretion a day. Bacon is off the hook.

Where did you rake up these classic ads!! Delightful and reminds me of Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s baked beans 🙂
You did it again with all the wisdom ha ha!! Thanks for this Sister Madly!! 😀

You can easily find more nightmarish ads like these by searching ‘Creepy Vintage Ads’ on google. ‘Creepy’ is the key word here. ;c)
May 4, 2015 at 9:46 AM
Of course Google LOL!! Seriously “creepy” ha ha!!
May 4, 2015 at 4:21 PM
‘Scary’ or ‘horrifying’ will also due in a jam. 😀
May 4, 2015 at 4:38 PM
Oooh…*rubs hand in glee in anticipation 😀

As someone who called his blog ‘The Wise Fool’ I personally condone and vouch for being totally foolish and gaining wisdom from hindsight.
May 4, 2015 at 3:42 PM
You condone foolishness in order to obtain wisdom? I knew I liked you! ;c)
How else is one to learn? It’s not that angels fear to tread, they just send in the fools as a scouting party.
May 5, 2015 at 12:17 AM
HA! I believe it!
Now, how does the fool avenge himself of this mistreatment by the angels?
May 5, 2015 at 10:48 AM
By finding the best bits of treasure for themselves and leaving all the pretty (but worthless) tat for the angels. That or use the old ink around a telescope rim… Get’s em every time! Or my favourite… Lead them down a passageway to a hole and kick them shouting “THIS IS SPARTA!” Either works. 😉
May 6, 2015 at 11:21 AM
Ha! Well done and well said. I am very experienced in, uh, a lack of wisdom? 😉
May 7, 2015 at 8:15 PM
Seems to me that those who are truly wise are the ones who never claim to be.
