The Mail

The picture from the top of the subdivision this morning!

Do any of you still get that excited feeling when you go to check the mail? You know the feeling that I am talking about. That feeling that we all had as children when our parents would tell us to check the mail, and we thought maybe just maybe something would be there for us. That feeling left me about the time that I realized the only thing that came in the mail with my name on it were bills! Then this last year I started receiving samples in the mail and I started getting excited when the mailman came.


My daughter loves to check the mail. She usually checks the mailbox everyday on her way in from school. Lately she has started getting college invitations, I guess that is what you call them, you know the letters that say "Come check out our school", so checking the mail has a whole new feeling for her now. Let's just say she is super excited about checking the mail!


Well, yesterday, for some reason, she didn't check the mail so I did. She again had several college invitations which I knew she would love, but there was an envelope for me... It said open immediately, time sensitive, who knew can they put bombs in an envelope. As soon as I get in the house, I rush to open the envelope, and guess what was in it?


JURY SUMMONS


You are hereby summoned to appear before the JUDGE of CRIMINAL COURT...


Since living in Tennessee Charlie & I have both now received an invitation to be on a jury. I served on a jury once in Georgia, but it was a civil case. This could be interesting...

That is a complete let-down for mail! I love getting the mail every day, but goodness, I would not like to get that invitation!

I never get the mail. Our mailbox is up the street and around the corner.. too lazy. My husband gets it in the winter and the kids get it in the summer. I have never been on jury duty... seems like it could be interesting... or not, lol!

This is something I have never had to do. I don't know why. I would probably get so involved in the case that I would try to play detective or something....maybe they know me...maybe thats why!!
