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.

Bartlett Pears have bloomed!

The row of Barlett Pears by the Louisiana Tech baseball field have just bloomed in the last few days. So have all the Barlett Pears in the vicinity of Ruston. Can Spring be far away? I am watching for the Dogwood blooms.
I noticed the blooms while doing a couple of laps around the Tech track. I had just had a big Applebee lunch with the family. Driving home I realized my steps for the day were low and I needed at least two laps aroung the track. So I headed for the track. I enter my daily steps into my log. I have been striving to keep my steps at least 3 or 4 thousand. I do the steps so that my log will look good. I could lie but I would know the truth. The graph below of my steps for the year show that I am not doing too bad lately. It is a long way from 10,000 but is better than a sedentery 1000. I should strive for a few thousand more.
