Jury duty and enjoyable things
Looks like I'm going to be on jury duty call. DH was on it for a year (or maybe it ended up being 2 years) but never got called in. It's a year long thing here. Hopefully, I won't get called in either. I received the questionnaire form to fill in and mail back. I don't think much at all ever ends up going to a jury trial in this small county. I think they only have court one day a week, so if there is anything, it's most likely a one day at a time thing. Funny, we met the "justice of the court" at a 4th of July BBQ we went to. I would not have guessed him to be a judge, LOL. When we were looking at places to move over here, DH would look all over online. There was a place for sale in the neighborhood this guy lives in. It's a "loop" road, with lots of pasture land and houses spread out along it, on acreages. DH would do a google map view and check out the surrounding homes. He said nope on that house for sale. A super junky neighbor across the street. We were trying to get away from junky neighbors! At the BBQ we were chatting with him and some others - turns out his is the junky place, LOL. I don't think he and his wife own it. It's like 80 acres, registered to someone else, with 3 homes (all junk) on it and back behind some trees is a huge junkyard of cars. No thank you!
Three of my favorite pages on Facebook (and/or Instagram): Mike Rowe's mom Peggy, About my Mother page, UPS Dogs, and Max the Floofy Bear. Mike Rowe's (from Dirty Jobs, etc) mother is a joy to read her posts. She always makes me smile and laugh. And she's proof you are never too old to follow a dream. She wrote a book in her 80's that became a best seller. UPS Dogs has lots of cute pictures, but the highlight is when UPS Driver Scott, from Newberg, Oregon posts pics and a little story to go with it. He's very creative and a great writer. And third, Max is an adorable long coat German Shepherd who's owner makes cute videos and captions them in Max's "voice".
In other entertainment avenues, still reading and still watching some shows, when I get time. I've been watching Madam Secretary's latest season on Netflix. I see that on August 1st they will finally have Season 11 of Heartland on. I still have 4 months left on the Netflix giftcard DD gave me. That gets me through to Thanksgiving. Almost to Christmas, when she can give me another giftcard :)
We had quite the lightning show last night around 11pm. It was all happening straight across from the back of our house, so quite the view out all the windows.
