She did indeed raise me right.  Unfortunately, I never was very 
good at minding her.  :\   I do believe I mentioned to Margaret 
that these could also be called moonflowers.  <VBG>

What I did discover after this episode is that _all_ my 
neighbors watch my garden in the morning.  I nearly always go 
out very early in a longish t-shirt, I nearly never can remember 
I've got nothing else on and I never ever can resist deadheading 
or pulling weeds.  (I adore that snicking sound when you 
pull the whole weed.)  Since my knees are lousy, I have no 
choice but to bend from the waist.

I had no idea I was providing daily entertainment for the 
neighbors.  Now I know why Rachel mentioned that I'd lost so 
much weight a couple of months ago.  I didn't think she'd seen 
me since she returned from Florida.  Heh.

Jaime, who is red-faced & grinning but will most likely forget 
all about this embarassment by the time that first warm spring 
morning comes around again.
