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. It gives me something to do everyday.

I had several days of agonizing over the color of my new chair. It was available in red and black. I chose red but was immediately deep in second thoughts. This chair is a big part of my life. Quite often I have to sleep in my chair. (Cough, trouble breathing.) I am in it a lot. There is a good chance that I will die in it. It is the center of my living area.
I liked the red but thought; is it a sissy, gay color? Black would be manly and not show spots as much as the red. But I am glad I went with red. It looks good, huh? Anyway, I am so tough that I could have a pink chair if I wanted to, huh?

Charlie lived next door and was one of my best friends. He would come over most every day to visit. You knew it when Charlie scratched on the door. Often he would see my car coming home from his yard. By the time I got to the garage door he would be there. He would do his best to act like a very happy puppy. He would sort of jump and wag his rear end. Charlie was 15. That is very old for a lab,
