THE CHURCH GOSSIP 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 style, but feared her enough to maintain their silence. She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his pickup parked in front of the town's only bar one afternoon. She self-righteously told George and several others that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing. Being a man of few words, George stared at her for a moment, then simply turned and walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing. Later that evening, George quietly parked his pickup in Mildred's driveway .. walked home . and left it there all night. Don't ya' just have to love ol' George . . . . ??!!
