Jury Duty

Went to Macon on Saturday. Ate lunch at Chickfila. Clipped a bunch of hedges.

Sunday night Ceil and I ate at Moxie Burger. Redboxed a great movie: The Intern with Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway. Then I was up until 1 am setting up Anna's payroll deduction after watching the 2 hour movie.

My Monday:
615 wake up
700 leave home
730 arrive at courthouse, first security check.
750 they let us in
