Jury Duty, Jury Duty, Jury Duty! Postcard Friendship Friday

I'm not sure how I ended up with this in my postcard collection ...
I probably picked it up at the Goodwill, where I find so many interesting cards and things.

I am in two minds about being excused from jury duty ...
On one hand, I completely understand there are very valid reasons to be excused ... my mom got called for jury duty last week, and had to be excused because she is the main caregiver for my handicapped father. Things like illness, certain professional reasons, and even death are valid excuses (my grandmother got her first jury duty notice EVER - on the day of her funeral!).

On the other hand, jury duty can be entertaining, and everyone should try to sit on a jury panel at least once in their life. I've sat on 3 juries in the past, and always wanted to be called for a Grand Jury (no reason, just curiosity). I finally got called ... and had to be excused because at the time my ex and I were stationed in Georgia, and they refused to fly me back home to Oregon for the event!

Have you been called for jury duty? Have you ever sat on a jury? Was it boring ... or fun?
What kind of verdict was reached?
(2 "guilty", 1 "hung" for me!)
Let me know!

Postcard - White Sands

I've never been to the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico.
I never pictured a desert as having flowers and trees!
But it does - and they are beautiful.

But I still think it is probably a little hot for me ...
