Gene was never selected for a jury. He was picked today, like yesterday, to be interviewed, and sat around in the courtroom for most of the day, but in the end was dismissed. He had done his duty and we are now free to carry on with our lives. Sure glad that’s over.
I got over to my folks’ about 9 AM after dropping him off. Mother had a day planned for us. She wanted to go over to Cheekwood Botanical Gardens and Museum of Art to view the tulips.

Mother tires easily, so we concentrated on the tulips today. Of course, we couldn’t miss the dogwood which are in full bloom right now. After our walk around, we had us a cup of coffee in the Pineapple Room and fingered the merchandise in the gift shop. By the time we got all that done it was well past our lunch time and Mother was pretty pooped out.
Gene called for his pick up just as I was finishing my late lunch. By some miracle, I got back downtown to grab Gene and got back out again before the worst of the afternoon traffic set in. On the way home we stopped to get gas, stopped to pick up a few groceries, and stopped to pick up some Whitt’s BBQ to feed to my friends, Mike and Peggy. We had a very long day and now we’re both pooped, as well.
That’s it for today. Thanks for tagging along.
