Trials And Tribulations

Hip Hop? No, This Is Just A Hip Op

A German judge has ordered her trials to be held by her bedside after being hospitalised with a broken hip. She has ordered lawyers, witnesses and handcuffed defendants to take part because, under German law, all the cases would have been scrapped if the judge had been unable to continue with the trials.

FOOTNOTE: Folk law.

That's committment....I would worry about having the house clean! Okay, will be looking for a verse with the word zentangle in it!

I worry about her state of mind on medications. If she couldn't leave her bedside, she was probably not able to concentrate either.

One must have to be on their death-bed in Germany to call out sick, I guess!

Couldn't do much else could he? His hands were tied!

Hmn. If she is high as a kite on the old morphine, guess there is grounds for appeal right there. Then again, if she is the control freak she appears to be, it's doubtful she'll allow herself to be medicated, eh?

(Wonder who broke her leg?)

Those Germans are so practical or vengeful. Which do you think it is?

Now that is very impressive. I wonder what she wore - her super hero jammies?
