Re: Re: nursery interview apparel

Thanks for that info Gene.  The fact is, I don't have experience at working
in a nursery.  This is one reason I'd settle for less money - so I could
learn something.  So, no, I don't have a "my way" to insist on!  My main
concern is whether I am up to the task - and whether they'd think so.  I'm
51.  I've worked a desk job for the last 16 years.  I wonder if I'm capable
of all the grunt work I expect I'd get. But I think if they do turn out to
be willing to give me the chance, it would bolster my own thoughts on
whether I can do it.  We'll see. Thanks.
