Subject: One for the "Just for fun" Page Sent: Saturday, August 10, 2002 17:10:40 From: email@example.com (John Smith) A couple of weeks ago we had a really good night for observing here in the UK. It was about 3 am and I was having a lot of "fun" with my ETX 125-EC when there was this bloody great knock on the garden gate and a gruff voice telling me to "Open up sonny!!!" It was the local police!!!!!!!!!!!! Some silly old woman had seen the glow from my red light in the observatory and also had seen the scope, she had phoned the police as I "must be spying on HER!!!!", at 3 am in the morning missus?!!, through her "frosted glass" and "curtained" toilet window!!!!!!!!! After a cup of tea, look through the scope at M57 and eyeballing the video recorder and tv I use for OSETI they went blithly on their way and told me not worry about her. Ho Hum........ John
