Prune picker

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.

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.
