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.

Griffin House History

The house was built in 1985 by the Griffins. The materials used were in large part salvaged from older structures. She was a professor at the college and he was in the insurance business. He had played football at the college. They had two sons, both of whom became doctors. The Griffins do not live in Louisiana now but return for visits. No one that I talked to knew who lives there now.

  2. This house replaced an older house. The older house probably had a romantic history.
