This is the blog of a prune picker. (Native born Californian) Retired oilfield. I am an old man. (90) I blog a lot about my body and getting old. As I approach death life gets more interesting. More 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.

Minnie Ann Ireton
I assume that Minnie was a fine guitar player and could sing real good.
According to my calculations Jackie was 1/16 Choctaw. Our children are 1/32 Choctaw. Their children are 1/64 Choctaw. Jackie and I have great grand children who are 1/128 Choctaw.
The Choctaw Indians lived in Mississippi and were very successful at growing corn. They were the first Indian tribe to travel the "Trail of Tears" to Oklahoma.
