Working for the people

It's been a grueling day at jury duty, working for the people. Though I spent most of the day sitting, I feel as though I've plowed the back 40 acres with a tablespoon.
When I got home at 4:30 I decided to stretch out on the couch for a moment. An hour later, the phone jangled me back to consciousness and it took an incredible level of restraint to keep from tossing it through the window.
I decided to walk around a little to stretch my legs so I headed out to get a scoop of corn for the deer. Jilda stood at the garden door and said "Look."
Out under the apple tree were three bucks with racks on their heads that looked like rocking chairs. I grabbed my iPhone to snap a photo, but it doesn't have a zoom and the moment passed. I think they sensed we were watching them because they whirled and within a matter of two seconds they all three hit the treeline and were gone.
I stepped down to toss out the corn and I snapped a picture of the apples.
I'm hoping the new iPhone  6 has telephoto capability.


  1. I think telephoto capability would be cool... I never get the good shots, I never fast enough :)

  2. You just gave me my way out of jury duty if I'm ever called. I'd never be able to sit in the chairs all day because of my pitiful back. No matter what chair they gave me, I couldn't sit in it for more than ten minutes. I'm so grateful to realize that I am worthless.


  3. Looks like you have great apples this year...we usually have to go somewhere to pick and buy them. Jury duty can be hard on you, all the sitting, but hopefully it will end soon for you.

  4. Bucks in the back yard and a great crop of apples. Probably made you forget the day serving the people!
    Take care.

  5. I love apples..............just saying...............never done jury duty also just saying

    1. And I love Apple! This company and it devices are cool... New iPhone 6 Plus amazing! It has a 8 MP digicam.
