I am not looking for Hallelujahs - or presents - or acknowledgements -- or whatever ... read on.
In the mail today, I received a summons (or whatever it is called) to appear for Jury Duty on November the 8th.
Naturally, I decided to stay home instead of giving my time to the justice system. I have always heard that juries are made up of people who were not smart enough to get out of jury duty.
I will be a bit out of touch on the 8th -- so I called the court today.
I called the lady on the form. She was quite pleasant.
I said, "I received my jury notice for the 8th but I have two problems."
She responded quite pleasantly.
I continued, "first of all, I won't be able to be there on the 8th; however, my second thing may make that of no importance. I turn 70 on the 4th."
She laughed and said that I had no problem and would send the official form to me to complete.
There are benefits to turning 70. As of this moment, I can only think of one benefit to turning 70.
A "STONE" is a family word for a personal story or thought, not quite an essay or short story. We moved to central Texas to be near a daughter. We are down to only one wirehair dachshund - Sadie. (Goodbye in 2021 to Oscar the ball boy and Bruno the larger twin) & my wife -- penned by a retired Texas H.S. band director - just nonsense thoughts unrelated to each other or anything other than what's happening and comments.
