prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. Retired oilfield. I am an old man. Will be 90 next July 20. I blog a lot about my body and getting old. As I approach death life gets interesting. Interesting is not good. I still drive. I attend sports, bluegrass, and civic events. I attend swim class three times a week. Some of my blogs might be interesting. A lot of my blogs are silly and trivial. None are very long.

The blogs are posted in the first column. The second column presents a condensed story of my life. And an archive of past posts. And links to blogs that I follow. The thumb nail pictures near the top of the second column are links to the most visited prune picker blogs. As determined by blogger software

John Wells


John is building an oasis in West Texas about an hour south of Alpine, Texas. He calls his project "Southwest Texas Alternative Energy and Sustainable Living Field Laboratory". He writes a daily blog about his work and life. I read it  and enjoy it. All kinds of technical projects and great photographs. You can reach his blog at The Field Lab.

John can also call wild long horn cows out of the wild and have them eat out of his hand!

Here comes one.

Getting closer.


John has a way with cows!

Watch out when she swings those sharp horns! OK, I will confess. The cow is Benita, an old friend of John's.

John's oasis is going to be centered in the structure he is building with storage crates at each corner. He is building that roof all by himself. It is going to be a greenhouse. Part of the roof will be translucent. He is  setting up a large water storage system.
