prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. (Native born Californian) Retired oilfield. I am an old man. (91) I blog a lot about my body and getting old. As I approach death life gets more interesting. More interesting is not good. I still drive. I attend sports, music, and civic events. I am writing my memoirs. 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.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! and remarks.

I want to wish all of you a very Happy and Healthy New Year.

I have enjoyed doing a daily blog since April 10, 2010. This is the 289th blog I have prepared. Blogging makes me think, go places, take pictures, and gives me a place to archive many thoughts and images. It allows me to communicate every day to people that I love and who mean so much to me.

I hope that you enjoy reading and looking at my blog. If you have any comments or suggestions about my blog I would like see them. There is a place at the bottom of every blog for you to add a comment.

When I started blogging my head was shaved. I am now a long haired blogger. I weighed 253 pounds. I had just started on Nutrisystem and by June 12 I was down to 224 pounds, my lowest weight of the year.  I am now back up to 249 pounds and will go back on Nutrisystem soon.

  1. I thoroughly enjoy Prune Picker. I look forward to it and love when you post two editions in one day! I'm looking forward to another year, even with unflattering pictures of me!

  2. I love it to Papa. I check it several times a day just to make sure I am up on all things "Papa Chuck". I love you so very much and am so glad that you blog.I love your sense of humor in your posts and enjoy the pictures too.

  3. I love grand daughters! Thanks for your kind remarks. I am enjoying blogging.
