prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. Retired oilfield. I am an old man. Will be 90 next July 20. I blog a lot about my body and getting old. As I approach death life gets interesting. Interesting is not good. I still drive. I attend sports, bluegrass, and civic events. I attend swim class three times a week. Some of my blogs might be interesting. A lot of my blogs are silly and trivial. None are very long.

The blogs are posted in the first column. The second column presents a condensed story of my life. And an archive of past posts. And links to blogs that I follow. The thumb nail pictures near the top of the second column are links to the most visited prune picker blogs. As determined by blogger software

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.
