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. I always have a job to do.

My son Chris, in happier days.

This picture was taken a few years ago at Dana Point Harbor.

I want to thank all of my dear friends in Ruston and my family for their expressions of sympathy on the loss of Chris. They have been a blessing and a big help to me. God bless you all.  Chuck

  7. I am sitting here in tears at the loss of our dear Chris. I never met him in person, but we exchanged many comments online over the last couple of years. As Snaggletoothie, he always posted penetrating quotes that cut right to the heart of the matter. At the Chinese Jar, he was miles ahead of almost everyone in his depth of understanding. Everything he wrote revealed a thoughtful, kind, brave, highly intelligent person. I am so very sorry for your loss.

  10. I'm so sorry for your loss. Though I never met Chris face to face I know he was a courageous, thoughtful man. I loved his sense of humor and taste in music, literature, and television, especially comedy. I'll miss his comments and posts very much. Praying for you and your family.

  12. Dear Mr. Munson, I am so sorry for your loss. I read your son's blog from time to time, and always enjoyed both his insight and his lovely photographs. He will be deeply missed.

    The loss of a child is difficult, no matter their age. My parents are still reeling from the passing of my sister a couple of years ago. Please know that while the pain will never go away, time will ease it somewhat. I am glad that you have happy memories of time spent together.

    Please know also that Chris was well-loved and respected by those who knew him - even if it was only through the Internet. The thoughts and prayers of many people are with you and your family at this difficult time.

  13. Chris' passing is now a comment on how total strangers, very far away and unknown, could cherish the thoughts, personality and generous wisdom of a man they would never meet in person.

    As one of the Unknown, I am struck by grief. I am, suddenly, his family.
