That’s really all that I did today. I reported for Jury Duty. I left early just so that I wouldn’t have to worry about parking. The last time that I was called, it took forever to find somewhere to park. Of course, I was one of the first and had to wait only a short time before they opened the door to the court house. And I forgot that I had some nail scissors in purse, so they got surrendered. (no real loss)
I don’t know if any of you have served recently, but in Sacramento you call in or go to the internet to check if you have to report and check each day for a week until you are called in. Lucky me, I had to report today, 1st day. If you do report and are not chosen, you are done for 18 months. (It’s one day or one trial.) They did call me for one one trial that would have lasted for three weeks. Out of the pool of jurors, they select the jury + alternatives. Of those chosen there were at least a half dozen or more that couldn’t serve because of the length of the trial. I was released along with the rest that weren’t chosen and sent back to the juror’s room to wait to be called for another trial. There were ten trials that needed jurors. I was not selected for any others and was released by 4:00 pm.
They have some process, it works, but you kind of feel like it’s a cattle call. Mostly it’s just move to one place then wait and see and move back and wait and see.
While in the jury room, we watched RV the movie with Robin Williams. :) Not too boring, I also brought a book to read and my I pad.
While there I did a little research on generators. I’m trying to decide on whether to get one or two portable or bite the bullet and get an Onan installed. So many decisions, sometimes it makes my head swim. Any input from any of you that have permanently installed or portables? (portable, a possible target for theft? I know some of them can be heavy, that’s why two smaller ones.)
I was also thinking about skirting around the bottom to block the wind and sand at the beach and later for the winter. pros/cons/cost ???????
ENOUGH !!!!! I think it is time to go to bed and probably dream about it all.
