Prune picker

Prune picker is a Depression Era term for a native Californian. It was not a complement. In the thirties when I was a boy there were times that I was the only prune picker in a group. Everyone else had been born somewhere else.

Once a year the Tech Music Dept puts on a tuba and trombone concert called Octubafest. Being a vulture for culture I attended the 2010 concert last night. Last night was Halloween so most of the players were in costumes. On the third head from the left you can see the ears of the Wolf-man. The first player from the right with the derby is Ollie Hardy, next to him is a Zombie. I saw a Mummy and Bela Logosi. Some costumes I did not recognize.

They played a nice program with music by Brahms, Amazing Grace, and Yesterday.
