Talking? Honey, you dont know what you're asking. Tell you a good joke on me: You know, I always dreaded the idea of becoming an old woman. And the way things look now, I won't have to worry about it any more.

Yeah - I could call it the May Holst Home for Broken-Down Broads. I kind of like that, don't you?
