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.

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.
