Prune picker is a Depression Era term for a native Californian. It was not a complement. In the thirties when I was a boy there were times that I was the only prune picker in a group. Everyone else had been born somewhere else.

Lionel Moore to the rescue!
About 7:30 this morning I was quietly treading water in the aqua exercise class. Then there was a tremendous noise next to me and a column of water arose and fell down on me. Lionel had just made a shallow dive. He was swimming when he hit the water. He swam rapidly across the pool and helped a gentleman who was having a problem with keeping his head above the water. Lionel helped the gentleman to the stairs out of the pool. The gentleman was able to dress and leave the pool building on his own. The action by Lionel was impressive and well done. He received a standing ovation from the aqua exercise class. The picture below shows Lionel on guard. I am glad he and his fellow lifeguards are there!
