I went to the mailbox today and brought back a letter for me and one addressed to Dorothy. My letter was from the Office of Personnel Management informing me that they received my application for retirement and would be issuing me a check "as soon as possible". "Oh, boy", we thought. Now we can leave on our trip on October 8th as we planned. Then Dorothy opened her letter. It was from the Court Clerk of Adair County. It said she is to report for jury duty on Oct. 7. Some people have one of those days. We seem to be having one of those lives.
