Re:My first post
Welcome, Kathy, who confessed
<< It was 10:00 pm and the yard light didn't reach that part
of the yard. I concluded that the neighbors would KNOW I'm crazy if I took

To your other sage advice on this subject I add:
1) Worrying about what the neighbors think is tacky, and thus to be despised.
2) No matter how well you behave, should circumstances invite it, there will
always be someone who will say you have always been nuts and they knew it.
3) Encouraging the neighbors to think you are nuts, on the other hand, is
fair-to-middlin' sport and keeps them and their issue out of your hair.
