Stefania, this reminds me of something my dad, a former NYC police officer, would often say, "The night has one thousand eyes. There is always some old lady who can't sleep looking out her window. All I have to do is find her and hope she had her glasses on." Two out of three have them on dad, not bad. #6413618
