Prune picker

This is the blog site of an old man. As a native Californian I call myself a prune picker. I live in a fifth wheel trailer. My front door is 25 steps from my daughter’s front door in the Piney Woods of North Louisiana. My blogs are often silly and or trivial, and some times educational and serious. I hope that some are interesting. None are long.

Preparing these blogs seems to fill a need in my life. I am compelled to do it. It helps fill the time until I die. It gives me something to do everyday.

Old Roseburg Turtles



Dorothy, my niece in Roseburg, Oregon has two old turtles. Mohamed is 90 and Duffy is 95. This type of desert tortoise can live for several hundred years. Dorothy is debating the options for the future of the guys when she is gone.

In top pic Dorothy is preparing the daily turtle meal of romaine and blueberries. The food is soaked in water. Middle pic is of Mohamed chowing down. He really like the blueberries. Bottom pic is of Duffy, who at 95 is a little slower than Mohamed.

Dorothy puts the guys to sleep every fall and gets them up the following spring. Dorothy has been boarding the turtles for 20 some years.

  1. Do you think the turtles would be happy here? We could take them some day.
