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.

Tommy Ledford's 90th Birthday Party.

What a blowout! Half of Ruston must have been there. Tommy probably had worked on the plumbing of most of the guests in the years he was in the plumbing business. You know the old saying "once a plumber, always a plumber".

Here is a picture of Tommy sitting behind his birthday cake.  

The cake was made to look like Tommy's old plumbing truck.

Notice that the license plate number is 90.




These group shots were taken early in the party. Later these spaces were full of people.

Someone had made a great slide show about Tommy's life. I was particularly interested in the several slides taken at Camp Cook, California in 1943. Tommy and I were both at Camp Cook at that time. Now we are both in Ruston, Louisiana at the same time.

I want to wish Tommy many more Happy Birthdays.
