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

Meeting of Northeast Louisiana Genealogy Society

In a discussion about the poor maintenance of the Monroe City Cemetery it was pointed out that a member of the body guard of Jefferson Davis was buried there.

  1. Is it this cemetery?
    Old City Cemetery
    18th & DiSiard Streets
    Monroe, LA 71201
    318-329-3296

    As this cemetery is listed as accepting current burials with the Louisiana Cemetery Board, the city is in charge of upkeep.

    Here is the contact number to file a complaint about the city to the Louisiana Cemetery Board.
    Photographs and dates of poor upkeep are oftentimes most helpful.
