Jury Exemption

Just as she was celebrating her 80th birthday, our friend received a jury-duty notice. She called to remind the people at the clerk's office that she was exempt because of her age.

"You need to come in and fill out the exemption forms," they said.

"I've already done that," she replied. "I did it last year."

"You have to do it every year," she was told.

"Why?" came the response. "Do you think I'm going to get younger?"

I am a retired employee of the State of Texas (U.S.A), so this sounds quite plausible. I am now a director of a Meals on Wheels organization, and this will go in my newsletter to recipients. We are excited over here about the publishing of the first book of Tig's Alien Attitudes trilogy. Hopefully, you will receive your 5 copies soon, and you can post a review on www.lulu.com. -- Moona from Read My Lips
