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

Four Monson Men

I do not have a group picture of the four Monson men. So I picked out a nice picture of each. They are all WW 2 era pictures. One of us was in the Marines, one was in the Navy, one was in the Army, and my oldest brother, Keith, was a defense plant worker. He made airplanes in El Segundo. He was married with children when the war came along. The pictures are arranged by age. Top is Keith, then George, then Warren, then Chuck.

Genealogy data.

Keith b. 1916 in Redlands, CA d. 1975 in Pomona, CA Age 59.
George b. 1918 in Riverside, CA d. 2003 in Van Nuys, CA Age 85.
Warren b. 1921 in Chino, CA d. 2003 in Seattle, WA Age 82
Chuck b. 1925 in Pomona, CA

We had a lot of  discussions about who was winning the war!
