Mmm… Brownies!

Sylvia just baked a pan of brownies and me oh my are they ever GOOD!

I started this Saturday with an hour or two of yard work: using my new pooper scooper to rid the yard of dog crap left by a neighbor’s dog, using weed eater and leaf blower to tidy up part of the lawn by the front siidewalk, etc. It does look better now; smells better, too. And I wrapped up the work before the heat of the day kicked in.

Back in the house I watched Oklahoma win their early afternoon football game and enjoyed Sylvia’s cooking.

Now it’s time to get myself together for this evening’s work with the Knights of Columbus Fourth Degree. We are to be on hand for the White Mass held on the campus of Incarnate Word University. Hopefully there’ll be some photos to share from that event.

Okay then, time for me to get busy again. I’ll get back to you later.

It’s good to be old.

A few weeks ago I received a Jury Summons ordering me to appear for jury selection next Monday at 08:00 with the form filled out. Looking over the form this afternoon I saw that there was a phone number I could call if I claimed exemption from the duty. One of the reasons that could disqualify me is my age. According to the form, a person can be disqualified if he is over 70 years old. AHA! I happen to be exactly 70 years and nine months old.

This afternoon I phoned the Office of Juror Selection and explained my situation. The nice lady on the phone explained that all I needed to do was fill out the form completely, noting the reason I was claiming exemption, and mail it to her office. The form will go out with tomorrow’s mail, And I’m glad that I won’t have to appear at the courthouse on Monday morning.
