Holiday Humor

I spent the last two days at jury selection for a murder trial. I was questioned for hours, along with other prospective jurors, most of yesterday, and eventually REJECTED by the prosecuting attorney. He probably thought I was a liberal fruitcake therapist, just because I answered honestly about having worked with gang members. After two days,I REALLY wanted to be on the jury. Oh well! I baked each morning before court, and until late in the evenings, to "make up" all the time I lost. I also lost income, canceling work. What a waste!

Now, why would I get this ornament?



My shopping is FINALLY done. I finished this morning (on-line). I am usually wrapped and finished by Thanksgiving! This year was crazy!


There are 15 kinds of cookies ready for my guests who will arrive tonight.


The inside says: "What will I do for the icing?"

Easy: The anti-anxiety meds of course!

I know what you mean about jury duty. I get called every few years. As soon as I say that I am a social worker, I am excused by the prosecuting attorney.

Love that card. Wish I could find it in Phila. I have a few friends who would appreciate it!

That must have been very frustrating to sit there so long and then be rejected, especially since you wanted to be on the jury. Knock on wood, I have not had to go in yet. I think it would be interesting to be on a jury if only it didn't take up to 2 hours to get into town where the court is located in the morning. If I was on a jury, I would probably rent a hotel room!

Thanks for the morning laugh with all the cartoons!
