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.

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.
