Jury duty is over!

I was at the court house for two days and both days I was picked for a jury ~ two different civil cases involving car accidents. The cases went fairly fast and we were able to come to a quick verdict (the first case we came to a verdict in about an hour, the second case in about ten minutes). Then we were dismissed. Yeah!

It's over, and I shouldn't be called again for at least two years!


I just wanted to tell you about the 4H artisans show that we had on Saturday. It turned out to be a great day! Lots of vendors and lots of great things! We sold one of our big marble chasers to a very happy little guy.

Do you see those wind chimes on the right of the photo above? I just had to have one. And now it's hanging on the back porch tinkling in the wind.

If you want to see more photos on the show, go here. What a fun day!

Glad to hear that jury duty has come and gone and you are off the hook for a few years. Now you can get on with enjoying your pretty new wind chimes.

How nice that your art show was a success.

Glad it went fast! I served last year. One case that lasted for 3 days!

Love your wind chimes.

I hate it when called to sit in jury duty but I guess we must all take our turns. I complained about missing work..big forcast to present..any way someone reported me to the judge and he called me into his chambers and questioned me about my complaining!!!Oh Boy!!
I did sit on that jury and it was an attempted murder case so it took awhile! NOT GUILTY>Argh!!
Love the chimes!Music to your ears!! :)

Otis and Riley certainly seem glad it's over. Nice that your "civic duty" didn't last too long.

I can't say I ever feel thrilled to get a jury summons in the mail, but when it's all over I feel as if I've done my civic duty. Glad your experience was only two days and pretty painless.
