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.

Four very important women in my life.

From left to right; Neway Dinwoodie Smith, Helen Smith Ireton, Jackie Ireton Monson, and Nancy Ann Monson. They are great grandmother, grandmother, mother. and baby. You can see that Nancy is curious about the box that her daddy is pointing at her.

Picture was taken in 1946 in the side yard of Neway's home in San Luis Obispo, California. I was married to the beautiful girl in bobby socks for 63 years. Today is Jackie's 85th birthday. It is also Christian Newberry's 2nd birthday. It is a day of tears and joy for me.
