Jury Duty -- and Wedding Anniversaries

Tomorrow I will have a new experience -- something that not a frequent occurance at my age. I have been called for Jury duty several times in the past, but I have never actually served. Today I spent the morning at the courthouse waiting first in the crowded assembly room and then in the courtroom with a jury pool of about 40 citizens. Twelve of us were selected to serve in a criminal trial in the superior court. The judge says that the trial will likely last just one day. The waiting was an interesting experience. I had several long and unlikely conversations with several people by whom I sat.

Jim and I did manage to have lunch together today -- our 47th anniversary.
