Well, things are looking more hopeful in regard to my jury duty obligation. I had to call late Friday afternoon to see if I had to report on Tuesday and I'm currently on stand-by. That means I have to call between 11:30 and 12:30 that day and be available to report within the hour if I'm needed. Last year John was on standby and wasn't needed. I'm hopeful, and I'm trying to be optimistic. The good news is that if called, I won't have to report til the afternoon so I won't miss the Thunderbirds, or the "Thunderburns" as Abbey calls them. Yippee. We heard and saw one of them flying over a little while ago. It's the most distinct sound and when I hear it, I immediately jump up and run outside. I wasn't disappointed either. I tried to take a picture to post, but despite my zoom, it only appeared as a dot on the screen. Oh well. I tried.

This morning we broke from our normal Sunday routine and drove to Golden, CO. John is working with a pastor on a book he's hoping to publish, so we went to this guy's church. It was a nice change of pace for us. Our friends from the ranch drove over and met us for the service and then we all went out together for lunch. Mexican...our favorite. We took the back way home and it was a most beautiful drive. It was a gorgeous day and so many folks were out picnicing and hiking and biking and just enjoying the sunshine and cool air. I hated we didn't have our hiking gear on. Oh well! Hopefully many more beautiful Sunday afternoons are in store for the summer.
