So I had a busy day today. As you should know, I'm a lawyer. What you might not know is that the bulk of my work is through a non-profit organization that provides free legal services to survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and/or stalking. My law partner, Eric, and I cover the entire northeast corner of Oklahoma, which, unfortunately in this age of high gas prices, results in our driving around a lot.
Today we had court in Delaware and Ottawa counties, and, as always, we tried to stack as many clients in those areas as we could. We ended up working on six clients today, and since I am trying my hardest to complete a pair of Jaywalkers for a graduation gift (by a week from today--yikes!), I decided to bring along the sock I was knitting for the ride. It had quite a journey....
So here we are on the road from Jay to Miami. When you live in Oklahoma, you get used to sights like this. People are always trying to use religion to sell their products. Here, Eric is asking the Auto Aution gods for help in completing the Jaywalkers on time.
The big cowboy just called out for a picture.
Here's the sock with Madelyn, the perpetually friendly and cheerful court reporter, who, along with Susan and Judge Reavis, make Ottawa County my favorite county to practice in by far.
The sock prosecuting the case of The Grotesque Gauge. The issue at bar: Frog or Not Frog.
And here's the sock at the county jail, where we had to serve some divorce papers on an (alleged) abuser. They wouldn't let me take any more interesting photos inside the jail, but the deputy sure was cute!
Both the Jaywalker and I had fun with our trip today, and next time, I promise more pictures of things like the alpaca farm and the World's Largest McDonald's. It was just too rainy today.
And for fun, my emergingly beautiful Pomatomus.
