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 was invited to Sunday Brunch by my good friends, Sue and Jewette Farley. The Brunch was at the Squire Creek Country Club near Ruston. I was delighted. The food was great and the Farleys are fun to be with. I want to thank them very much for the invitation.
The richest man in Lincoln Parish sat at the next table. I was impressed that Jewette exchanged greetings with this man. Jewette said that he and the man had gone to high school together. However, the man was better at math and had built his Father's small trucking business into a multi-million dollar business.

A heart wrenching sight in Ruston is of students at the Louisiana School for the Blind making their way around downtown. Can you think how sad it would be to be blind? It is a heart warming sight to see the student's courage and dedication.
