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. I always have a job to do.

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.
