Prune picker

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.

Pretzel Bakery

The first commercial pretzel bakery in America was in Lititz, Pennsylvania. It is still going strong. The building in the picture is the Sturgis Pretzel Museum in Lititz. Jackie and I visited the museum on one of our several stops at the 1000 Trails RV Park in Hershey. Part of the visit was rolling and forming a pretzel with Playdough. Jackie was good at it.

On the last Sunday Morning TV show on CBS the reporter visited the Museum and tried to roll a pretzel. The show really made the memory of the visit there by Jackie and I come alive. We walked through that door and stood in the spot where the reporter tried to roll a pretzel. The memory brought tears to my eyes.

Jackie and I have many wonderful memories !
