It was nice outside, not too hot, so I took a walk around the downtown area. There was a farmer's market in Cesar Chavez park, a few blocks from the courthouse. That's the other good thing about being on jury duty on a Wednesday. I bought a bunch of fruit to take home. I ran into the people who sell pears in pear season, and today they were selling cherries. The lady remembered my pear photographs.
I got a little short of breath walking back to the courthouse, and had to use my inhaler. This doesn't seem to be clearing up as fast as I would like it to. I still had an hour, so I drove over to the office to visit with my colleagues and water my plants. I sat for a while and felt better, then drove back to court.
The called us all into the jury room around two. I thought they were sending us home, but they had a panel. I was on the panel, and went up to the courtroom. I have to go back tomorrow for jury selection. I'm always happy to serve on a jury, but equally happy to be excused, so I'll see what happens.
