Gotta Love Frank!!

Mildred, the church gossip, and self-appointed
monitor of the church's morals, kept sticking
her nose into other people's business.
Several members did not approve of her
extra curricular activities, but feared her
enough to maintain their silence.

She made a mistake, however, when she
accused Frank, a new member, of being an
alcoholic after she saw his old pickup
parked in front of the town's
only bar one after noon.

She emphatically told Frank
(and several others)
that every one seeing it there

Frank, a man of few words,
stared at her for a moment and
just turned and walked away
He didn't explain, defend, or deny
He said nothing.

Later that evening,
Frank quietly parked his pickup
in front of Mildred's house ...
walked home ...
and left it there all night.

You gotta love Frank!
