Doing my civic duty

Today I had jury duty. Immediately when you hear that you say "yuck", but don't. It was absolutely wonderful. Yes, I did have to wake up early. I usually sleep in late. But when I get there they had coffee and donuts waiting for everyone. Then I had 3 1/2 hrs of uninterrupted knitting. No laundry, no dogs to take out, no dishes. They called my name and told me I could go home after I pick up my lunch in the cafeteria. WOO HOO. I'm done. Since I had to go in I don't have to go to work. I am one of the lucky ones who gets paid from work, and I get to keep my $10 the court pays me. I win all around. They can call me up for jury duty any time. I have had a busy week, my daughter turned 27. I can't believe it. So we took everyone out for Mexican and then came back here for birthday cake. It was a lot of fun. I'm back at work after having the holidays off. Now that you can say "yuck" to. And we're still busy trying to get my mom's room ready. Here's what's new in my knitting world.This is where I am on my son-in-laws scarf. Today it's 60 degrees here. I don't think he'd need it today. I started these Uptown Boot Socks from Favorite knits. I started in the SAM5 this month so I figured I better get started. Since a lot of people have already finished theirs. And finally this is the rear end of my car.Any guesses as to what it stands for?

Not everybody is so lucky and gets to knit whle waiting for jury duty (read it on another blog), but it sounds like it was not so bad for you.
Nice WIP's! Where did you get that sticker?
