On June 4th I left Kentucky driving my RV known as Leggs. The trip is mostly unplanned, it will be interesting to see where I end up. Let's GO!

I jumped right back in the maelstrom. Vacation?
When I came back my lender needed a bunch of paperwork ASAP.
Then I was on jury duty. Another one of my employees was in the same pool. But then it really got inbred. I was in the jury pool Monday AM, at the courthouse at 8:15 AM with 75 other folk. Jury selection. Been there, done that. But this was different. WAY different. I also was summoned as a witness in the same trial. That was not going to work. Yet I had to appear. This was all weird enough, but add to this the defendant was one of my own employees. How often does THAT happen? Maybe a lot, if you live in Dutch...
So I sat there all day wondering when the court would realize my situation. I even walked up to the court clerk during a break to ask. I did not know her, but she greeted me by name. She said the court knew about my situation. As court was ending for the day, the judge called my name and said I was excused. Last thing of the day. Why did I sit there all day? I had stuff to do at work.
The Shell boats are coming back through town on their way to WHEREVER. Even the boats themselves are not sure of where they are going to head. The same trend as usual, nobody really knows what is happening. SURPRISE! Several vessels are here right now, including Noble Discoverer. One of the drilling rigs. Kulluk is heading here shortly.
Weather has been Dutchworthy. Windy most of the time, especially at night. Two days ago the sun came out after a night of heavy rain. Blue sky! The rain has continued, melting most of the early snow.
I want to see if the pass is still open, just no time to do so. Ballyhoo Summit is closed, just because the corporation is lazy and does not want to even try to maintain the road.
I have a new fox buddy. BW. As in bow wow. A bark in the dark.
Sunday night I heard the unmistakable bark of a fox on my western deck. When I checked it out the fox was barking at Dutchie. She was on the porch but seemed pretty unconcerned. I tried to feed the newcomer, but he just got a couple of bites.
Next night he was back again. Lotsa barking. I hesitated to let Dutchie out later that night, figuring the bark possibilities. But I did let her out, and at 3 AM I was sorry. Bark city.
Blasting continues on the S-Curves of Airport Beach Road. They are eliminating a nice sized hill to build a new government building. Not a lot of flat space in Dutch.
We had a court verdict last night. Innocent on one charge, guilty on another. It could affect my company for a couple years. Hopefully I can give more details before then.
Say good night.
