Juror number 9

On Wednesday I had jury duty. One thing I don't get about the whole process. I have received at least 9 summons over the years. They say this is a totally random selection. Why am I so lucky to be chosen so often when in any other random drawing that would be for a cash prize my name wouldn't be drawn even if I bribed the person drawing the names.

Any way, I went, I was bored, I read a lot and I spent some time checking out one of the cute jurors on the other side of the room. I don't think he noticed me watching him. I even dared to take his picture with my phone. Nice looking don't you think?



How about if I zoom in a bit to give you a closer look at juror number 9.



Make that juror number K-9
It was tough getting a picture of him without being obvious.

Oh and in case you are wondering, I didn't get picked for a jury and I got to leave at noon.

I wonder if Juror Number 9 got picked for a jury.

After several years of being sent a jury summons, one year, here in Texas I had my chance to be taken off the list forever!!!

They sent me a summons, I was to appear on such and such day in January at 9 a.m.

Drove into town on the day the summons had....it was a holiday and the courts were closed. I ranted and ranted in letters, emails, phone calls, and even went down the next day to the county clerks office and ranted some more.


They have never sent me another summons. I think they thought I was a probable hot head terrorist.

that is one handsome juror and i would have taken that shot to... you know i would.. none of my fellow jurors looked that good but they were entertaining to watch and listen to.. i was called once and they chose me for the jury.. i think the way they do it is kind of silly... hundreds of people waiting half a day just to see if they get picked. got to be a better way..

That's probably the most "normal" juror I've ever seen at jury duty. There are always some really scary folks at the court house---and that's IN the jury room!

I've had enough court to last me a long time. Watch--with my luck, I'll get jury duty now! Hahaha!

Glad you didn't get picked.

I have been called twice. I was used both times, should have brought the dog. LOL

Well at least one juror could be guaranteed to be a good judge of character..

I do believe that is the best looking juror in the room! Definitely a handsome guy. I've been asked twice. The first time I went but the lawyer had an emergency and they sent us all home. Recently (last year) I was called the night before and told not to come in due to the snowstorm.

I've been called twice, used once. I'll never be picked again, though. No longer able to be impartial toward police. Listened to one lie on the stand, and that and a few other things have left me pretty jaundiced.

You made me chuckle with the K-9. I should have known.

Have a fabulous Friday honey. Big hugs to you and my very best to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

Hmmmm I wonder if the defendant will get a fair trial with a dog for one of his jurors. It would be so easy to bribe him with a good bone. Or perhaps he is there to keep any of the jurors from escaping! I have been chosen many times. Phil was chosen, but the man made a plea deal and the jury was dismissed. Love your stealth shot!

he's gorgeous!! I just met a lady over the holidays that has a puppy named Cody and he looks just like this dog but a little smaller, but he has huge paws and will be a big boy. :)

Donna said...

That is a handsome dog! Looks like a Belgian sheepdog. I have never, ever been summoned for jury duty. And I think I would enjoy it!

BeadedTail said...

Hahaha, juror number K-9! You're funny! I've only been called for jury duty twice and was on the jury once - we put him away! :)

I have been called a couple of times over the years...served a couple of times. There are actually some people who volunteer for jury duty! They must be bored! LOVE that pup!! You totally crack me up Ann!!

marie said...

I have never been called for jury duty! I've always thought I'd like to be...but maybe not! Looks kind of boring. Except for #9 of course!

What was the deal with the older man in the foreground of the first shot flipping you off while holding his papers?

Never been called for jury duty, it seems some folks get called all the time though. Juror K9 is very handsome indeed!
