I nearly caused a divorce last night.

It was about midnight and we were both asleep, when I woke to hear the
"whoo-whoo-whoo-whoo-whoo-whoo-whoo" of a tawny frogmouth nearby.  I
jumped out of bed and said "listen, it's a frogmouth".

Jan felled me with a well-aimed right cross.

When I came to, I crawled to the window and peered out.  The bird was on
the cable from the street pole to our house (Kew East).  A new one for
the garden list.

I went back to bed very quietly.
