It's been awhile

Hello,there!  Been a while since you've heard from me, hasn't it??  Let'sjust call my recent blog absence a little non-vacation, vacation.  I'vebeen here at work, but as I knew it would be, the nicer weather and justgeneral work fatigue has had me wanting to fly out the door when I've finishedmy stories for the day instead of sticking around to write! J 

Speakingof stories… today's was a doozy!  Police were notified last night that awitness in a murder trial (that started this morning) had been attacked at homeand threatened about testifying.  A photographer and I were able to talkwith the victim off- camera this morning, and then I was in court most of theafternoon listening to testimony.

I'vesat in on a few trials now for work, but I've never been involved in anypersonally in any way.  (And I hope I never will be!)  I do, however,quite enjoy listening to what happens in the courtroom.  Today things tooka little unexpected twist when the brother of the defendant was found incontempt of court by the judge and ordered to be taken to jail.  I didn'treally see that one coming!

Anyway,after a day in court, and the last few minutes spent downing Cheez-its andRolos from the gas station (classy, eh??), I'm going to hopefully burn off someof those mostly empty calories in a 100+ degree yoga room!  Time to gosweat it out!  Tomorrow's another day, which means another story (or twoor three… )

Untilnext time,

Erin
