This month's winner is LINDA FOXLOW of Sarasota, Florida:

We were traveling with some friends in Italy in December 2018 when my husband came out of a public bathroom chuckling.

Seems while he was standing next to a person unknown to him, our grandson's talking "Toy Story" doll Woody, who was riding in his coat pocket and who accompanies us on many journeys, spontaneously came out with, "Howdy, partner!"

The other person bolted out of the bathroom!
