"Carol, there is someone outside your bathroom window."
"I heard a woman's voice outside your bathroom window," my good friend Connie said as she whispered down the hallway to the den.
"What did you hear?"
"Kind of a cry-like voice."
She was visiting from Louisville and, being from the big city, she has the mindset that if a noise is heard outside a window, it is not a good thing. I, on the other hand, find plausible excuses.
"Are you sure you didn't hear the wind?"
