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.

Parking Ticket.

The Jeep that Skip has loaned me does not have a valid Tech parking sticker so I got a parking ticket from the Tech Police this morning while I was in the swimming pool. I got a ticket every day I went to the pool when driving the rental car for three weeks during my previous trip to the body shop. The Tech Police are really on the ball when it comes to parking tickets.

To avoid paying the $20 fine I have to visit the Police Station and explain that my car with a valid parking sticker is in the shop. The Police then void the ticket. This is good because the ticket window is up some 20 steps and I get additional exercise going up and down the steps. No charge for the extra exercise.
