Old Pattie just cannot stop talking Voice grates like a mallard duck squawking Can't you just be quiet ? For once you should try it Her hen pecked husband left walking! Written after we went out tonight - this woman would not shut up and in the end her hubby just walked out of the room 6/10/18

No one is spared the poet's pen! We've all run into Old Patties, male and female. And your Foghorn Leghorn image is spot on :) Good one, Jan.

What the duck. Brilliant! Guilty as charged!........................................................................ You know I suffer from that ailment. Can't understand those that show resentment. Most take life for granted! Can't see why I've ranted! I ask, "Should I be so complacent"? ........................................................................ hugs Mick

What the duck? LOL Love the humor, Jan. A recent poll revealed that the thing men dislike most about women is their "chatter." Love, Carolyn
