The phone recording last night said that jury duty selection was still on, so I went down to the courthouse today and was told that it had been cancelled.  I remind myself that the phone message was on a Sunday and probably not very timely.  But hey, I’ve still never served on a jury, and I only need to get through the next few years to make it ironclad.


But I have some government appointments that will keep me here this month.  So I won’t be on the road until the last week of June (well, maybe a quickie to Bryan).  I ended up not going to Bryan a week ago and went back to Austin instead, where I got to pay a visit to Leonard’s Garage on S 1st to extract a frozen bolt on the alternator mount.


Nice to have the truck fixed.  I will be here most of the time for the next three weeks, and I won’t have to inflate tires and charge the battery.  It feels nice to get all these woes behind me (muffler, tire, alternator, headlight switch, etc.)


I might try to record a few songs while I’m here.  I’ll have a little time to spare.  As long as I don’t get too wrapped up in the renovations.
