Ankles, Age, and Eyesight :-)

<VBG> milord, we lasses raised in Carolingia way back when, when Dirt was New
and possibly around the time of the great Birth of Stew, were never, never
encouraged to peek through holes in walls! :-) We couldn't, of course, be
blamed for looking with normal human curiosity when folks insisted upon
changing in front of windows .... such a fine invention as Glass, after all,
ought to be put to good use .... <g>
However, though I am certainly venerable enough to have failing eyesight,
perhaps it was nothing more than that you had removed your boots for a moment.
Then again, mothers are said to be able to see through walls and across county
lines to know what people are up to .... :-)
And it was very nice to finally meet you, too!
So--when's the next University? And where?
<who squints toward the bar and asks, Could I have a brown bock beer and a
bowl of Recently Made Stew, please?>
