Jury Duty

I told a few people that I had been summoned for Grand Jury duty tomorrow. There was a thing on the form they sent me about Grand Jurors but that was just part of the form. I was actually "summoned to be available as a trial juror for a 2 week term of Supreme Court."

I was looking forward to getting paid $40 a day. And I went out and bought sandwich fixings for lunches. I was all set to show up and Jur tomorrow.

But then I called in for my "reporting instructions" today and they said "Don't bother". Well actually they said "jurors are dismissed".

On the one had I'm relieved because I was starting to worry about parking. On the other hand I would have liked the extra money.

And then there is Ninshurbur. She has been acting a bit crazy since Kip died. I don't know what sort of problems would have developed if I left her alone for 9 hrs ever day. She really needs a cat companion. But I really shouldn't take on another expense.

Comments

Poor Ninshurbur. Kitties do take it hard when their friends pass away. Give her lots of love and comfort--that should help. Also treats and toys, if Dickens is any indication. :-)
I have been trying to give her lots of affection. And really, she is not as bad as Kip was when J left. She is more talkative, but she doesn't wander the house crying like Kip did.
