When Patty Saw the Photo


When Patty saw the picture in the newspaper, she really blew up! But she had to the fact that somebody had impersonated her in Las Vegas. Who was that woman? Patty needed to !


She's been trying to understand how this could happen, but she just can't . Usually when she gets so upset, she tries to go camping. If she can't get out of the city, she usually at her favorite restaurant. She's so confused and upset now, however, that she just doesn't eating out.


If she loses the election now, all her plans will . She won`t be able to stop the dam on the Big River, and instead of living in a the beautiful Governor`s Mansion, she'll living in a tent in the forest. Well, in that case, at least she`ll have the animals to keep her company!
