Glad to be home...

We are both enjoying being home. Went to our favorite pizza place; went to the casino for breakfast and a little gambling; just doing all the usual stuff. My wife had the video recorder going while we were gone; recorded probably more than 20 hours a week so she's glued to the tv. I am catching up on all the blogs, etc. that I waste my day on. Then we got the mail....

There was a registered letter for me from the Sheriff: I've got jury duty starting tomorrow! It's only my second time, the last time was about 1985, so I guess it isn't that onerous. Besides, it's a good excuse to delay taking the trailer to be fixed. I'm enjoying driving something that's under 50 feet long.

Today I spent an hour or so out spraying weed killer on our rocks. All the rain this winter has brought out a fantastic crop of the little buggers and they are (wait for it...) growing like weeds! There are tons of them; I'll be headed off to the store for more weed killer after jury duty tomorrow. It's the nice season here in the desert, I did my spraying in my shirtsleeves. We are still wearing jeans but it's going to be shorts season soon.

Gotta go. Have a good one.
