The Eclipse

A couple of the artifacts/lens flare from my digital camera seemed to capture a bit of the peak of the eclipse from the back patio here in McDonough, GA (south of Atlanta).

Superior Court, McDonough, GA

Today was the third day that I've reported for jury duty this week. 

My number/name was called today from among the prospective jurors, so I got in line for the clerk to walk us upstairs to the courtroom. Halfway up the stairs we stopped, and waited for about ten minutes, then the clerk came and told us to turn around and go back to the waiting room. 

The clerk then explained that the lady, who's case we were going to see about, had left the building and the judge was putting out a bench warrant on her, so we could all go home and didn't have to come back the rest of the week, we were excused...

Blood Drive

I donated blood this morning for the Red Cross, at the Henry County Police Department.

I did have to wait for a bit, but that's a good thing since there was a steady flow of folks coming in to donate.

29 July 2017 EDC Pocket Dump

Not much has changed with my edc since my last 'pocket dump' photo back in April.

I made a quick run to Papa John's for a carryout order, using my 'points' for a free medium two-topping pizza, before the points were set to expire tomorrow.
  
Ma likes ham and pineapple on her pizza, so that's what I got for her, and I bought another with pepperoni and mushrooms for Pa and I.
  
We live much closer to this particular pizza shop since we moved last month, and it only took five minutes to drive there, but traffic stinks in this area, so it took a good twenty minutes to drive back home, even with it just being a warm 91° Saturday afternoon...

When I have to report to the courthouse a week from Monday for my jury duty summons, I'll probably only take my driver's license, keys, watch, cell phone, coin pouch, and mints, to avoid trouble getting past security, but will probably still set off the metal detector and have to be searched and wanded, maybe even remove my non-metallic belt and shoes, just like the last time less than three years ago, lol...

And,  later that evening I purchased a wedge of the Boar's Head 3 Pepper Colby Jack Cheese at Publix, to cut up and add to some crackers fer snackin' on, as I binge watch some Netflix on Saturday night...
