Not on jury…this time… next week maybe

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAToday, I went to be on a jury at 9:15 a.m.and there were 49 other people there waiting for the inevitable. Some were busy farmers, others busy professionals or housewives.  I had asked for a deferment already so no time was convenient but better than when I am teaching during the school year.

It was a sad case of a rape that happened in 2008 and it is come to light now?  Well, the “innocent guy until proven guilty” was sitting in the room the whole time as we were asked questions of the judge, of the two lawyers and finally, I was part of the 20 people to be potential candidates. I was eliminated at 5:15, so it felt like a long process just to be rejected.

When I got home after picking asparagus in the ditches and picking flowers and watering other new plants, I went to pick more glass and enjoy the great outdoors.  I have a garden that is coming along and that needs tending.

Right now I am tired and want to go to bed. My family is coming up for the week to help my Dad de-clutter his shop…he has a LOT of inventory and he IS a hoarder.  As an 87 year old, he grew up as a Depression baby so he holds on to things…just in case.

Well, we will see how much we can fill a BIG dumpster with all the things he has in his shop.  I may post pictures of that later.  I should have gone out to pick gooseberries. I’ll have that for my nephew from Russia, he LOVES gooseberries!
