I immediately recognized the jury summons mixed in with a load of other junk a letter carrier delivered to the Willard home in August.
I've seen plenty of these yellow summons sheets from Catawba County Superior Court Clerk Al Jean Bogle. It seems employees of The O-N-E make monthly trips to my office with the form in hand and hoping I will help free them from the obligation.
Yes, I have written a few jury duty "excuse" letters for the folks at The O-N-E.
Sometime about 1990 was the last time I was bored.
Itâ€™s actually one of the earliest moments I remember from my life. Sitting in my childhood room, I remember saying to myself, â€śThereâ€™s nothing in here and nothing to do.â€ť
Then life happened.
Action figures, baseball cards and clothes started to flow into that square living space. Then school ushered in returned homework assignments, reports and projects. Art classes created framed drawings, and basketball teams merited participation trophies.
