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.

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!
