Is what I hear true?

You don’t know what to do?

Nary a clue

nor an idea out of the blue?

You can’t build trust

on ought for naught

No reputation = no remuneration

“You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.”
Henry Ford

    Clever poem. Henry would agree with you. Thanks for sharing with In Other Words. BTW I thought your name was Franci but I see here that it is Eugenia? Which is it? Sorry if I have been calling you the wrong name.

      My name is Franci Eugenia Hoffman. I made some changes to my blog. New theme and using my middle name. I am a big fan of and use all 3 names on their site. beBee is based in Madrid and my Spanish friends use three names so we American and Canadian fans decided to do the same. So, you are not wrong. 😁
