prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. Retired oilfield. I am an old man. Will be 90 next July 20. I blog a lot about my body and getting old. As I approach death life gets more interesting. More interesting is not good. I still drive. I attend sports, bluegrass, and civic events. I attend swim class three times a week. Some of my blogs might be interesting. A lot of my blogs are silly and trivial. None are very long.

Osman's Dream

I am 100 pages into the book "Osman's Dream. The History of the Ottoman Empire. From 1300 to 1923."  By Caroline Finkel. Chris had been reading this book for some time. Bloggers often post what they are reading. Chris posted this book for some time. It was in his backpack when he passed away.  The book is of interest in these times of Christian/Muslim interaction. I am reading the pages that Chris had just read. Chris underlined some passages of text. Reading the book and looking at the underlined text is spending time with Chris.

Chris passed away four weeks ago today. It is getting easier.
