Prune picker is a Depression Era term for a native Californian. It was not a complement. In the thirties when I was a boy there were times that I was the only prune picker in a group. Everyone else had been born somewhere else.

AE Phillips Veteran Recognition Program
The program was put on by the fifth grade. AE Phillips is a Magnet School located in the middle of Louisiana Tech.
It was a nice typical veterans day program. A week early because of school schedule. I was really touched by a portion of the program that was devoted to Patriot Paws. Patriot Paws trains and provides aid dogs to disabled veterans. In the picture above is Mike McHale and his buddy Cap. A check for $1600 was presented to Mike. The money had been raised by the students in two weeks.
