We spent the good part of the middle of the day at the park. I am sad to say that the weather is not as nice as it used to be. Summer is forcing her way into my life and I am not happy about it. The hot weather brings out my worst traits. Why is this so?
A man who watched Mike's trial over the past two weeks wants to take us out to dinner. It's a very nice gesture and we accepted. This man spends his winters in AZ (a snowbird) and summers in Utah. He is a retired defense attorney and enjoys watching criminal trial while here on vacation. Go figure. Anyway, he happened upon Mike's trial and became fascinated with it. He thinks Mike did a bang-up job (of course he did). Sadly, or maybe not sadly, the jury's verdict was: Hung Jury. In a few months, Mike will have to retry the case. I sure hope he is able to win the 2nd time around. Second time is a charm, right?
EDIT: So, I was totally wrong on who this guy was that sat in on Mike's trial that week. He turned out to be a really awesome man. He is an attorney but I am not sure what kind of law he practices or practiced. We ate at Pinnacle Peak Patio with other members of his family. It was a great night of good food and good converstation. The funnest part about dinner: everyone we met that night knew a member of my family or a friend or a co-worker. It was fun making all the connections and associations to other great people.
