On Wednesday we announced the winners for our Scarecrow contest (see previous post). I didn't post all of the entries on here, because I didn't get around to asking permission to do so. We had two kiddos each win a $25 gift certificate from a couple of local businesses.
Then the crud. Actually it didn't knock but just barged in and attacked Grace during the wee hours of the morning...1:30 a.m. (to be exact) and didn't go away until 6 a.m. (to be more exact) leaving her a very exhausted and wimpy young lady for the rest of the day. Her Dad was right there with her, because that's what this dad does. Being a plumber and a former septic tank cleaner, Sunny is used to being around...yuckiness.
Me? Not so much. You hurl, I hurl. That's just the way it is. My gag reflex goes into overtime. So Sunny takes care of that business, and I pat her on the head when she's done and say, "There, there". It's all about teamwork, right?!
Fast forward 24 hours. Guess who's got the crud now? Sunny. Yep. But he's over it. And just in time. This morning he had to show up for jury duty. We kept calling the number hoping beyond hope that it would be canceled. Nine times out of 10 they do. But apparently murder trials don't just get canceled (who knew?) It all worked out in the end. He was released to go after he explained to the friendly judge that it would really be a hardship on our family and business, being self-employed and having no one to carry on the business for the two or three weeks of trial. Thank you, Your Honor!
So far I've managed to escape...the crud...but I wouldn't mind jury duty.
Have you ever done jury duty for an actual trial?
It's All Good!
