I know Cheryl!  It's absolutely true.  And I'm trying - one of 
these days.   <g>   A guy I used to work with who was also an 
avid gardener, used to say that he dreamt of the day when he 
could get up in the morning, go out on the porch starkers and 
shoot that muskrat crossing his pond, without complaint from 
anyone.  ('course he was pretty elderly and the one time he did 
try to shoot the muskrat crossing his pond, he accidently 
removed the tip of his dog's ear.)  He did, btw, nearly always 
garden sans clothing.
