Yesterday I had to be over in Liberty to report for Grand Jury duty. I have lived in Clay County for 45 years and have never been called.
Out of 100 people, 12 are chosen to be on the Grand Jury----well, I only thought we would have to get through the day. But oh no, I will be on the Grand Jury until June the 2nd. I have to report every-other Tuesday and listen to cases. Our job is to decided if there is enough evidence to go to trail.
It should be interesting, but it sure is a big commitment. The other folks just have to be ready to answer their phone in case one of use doesn't make it to the Jury.
Hoooray for Me!

We had all three grandkids all weekend and I am worn slick. They are so good and so much fun, but both Mike and I just looked at each other when they left today around five and said, "we're really glad we are retired and don't have to teach tomorrow!"
