To Blab or Not to Blab

This is my facebook profile picture. Several people have told me that they think it's pretty weird but I like it because it doesn't show any of my wrinkles or triple chins.

Well, now. I didn't ask this question of Sister Mary Martha, but I think I probably should have:
I tend to run my mouth and say more than I need to.....who is the patron Saint of those who talk too much?
Talking too much is a relative situation, is it not? If you're at Aunt Tillie's funeral and you just can't stop commenting on the mourning garb or lack thereof, you talk too much. If other people can't get a word in edgewise, you talk too much. If you're Chris Matthews, you talk too much.
But some people talk a lot and it's a very good thing. With that in mind, I offer two patron saints for you, with the thought that if you have a tendency to run your mouth, you could at least not run it on empty.....
.........So blab away, my dear. And remember the words of St. Francis "Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary, use words."
Oh, my, Sister. Girl. You don't want to tell someone like ME to "blab away"......!
