I survived jury duty...
They didn't call me. SOB! I just had to check a web site twice a day for a week to see if they wanted me to report. Not that I would have been chosen for a jury -- it's a "jury of peers" and hey, how many penguins are subjected to trial by jury? A penguin on the jury of a people trial just doesn't work out! But it's nice that I'm finished for a year with that silliness.
In other news, I got a new tent, an ultralight one-man tent (no link, not sure I want to recommend it yet). Last night I set it up to seam-seal it. Because it was raining outside, I set it up in my living room, using string and weights to take the place of stakes. The Mighty Fang was much help in tying the strings (not!).

In 63 years I have never had to do jury duty.
Got a few notices that I may be called on but my reply was such that they didn't want me.

Same here. For some reason, as soon as I mentioned I had been a cop, I was immediately excused. Wouldn't even let me serve on civil juries.

I am a black and white and yellow multicolored penguin making his way as best he can in a world of monochromic monkeys.
