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.

The Knowltons.

This is a picture of my Mother's family. I believe it was taken in 1904. It was taken in Stirling, Kansas. My Mother is the beautiful teenage girl on the left. She would have been 15,

The names of the people in the picture by front row, middle row, and top row, from left to right are;

Front row: Uncle Harold Haight, Uncle Francis Willard.
Middle row; My Mother Olive, Grandfather John Edwin, Uncle Warren Gray, Grandmother Ermina Delphine.
Top row; Uncle Clifford Hale, Uncle Jesse Lewis, Uncle Leon Mathew, Aunt Marjorie Adela.

I never met my maternal grandfather as he passed away a year before I was born. I met all my uncles and Aunt Marjorie. I spent some time with my Aunt Marjorie and Grandmother Knowlton.

The Knowltons all tended to be nice people.
