Prune picker

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.

A quiet day on Mitcham Orchard Road.

We are all concerned about my great grandson Christian. He spent last night in the hospital, He had a fever and was dehydrated. They say he had strep throat. Joy spent the night with him. I just talked to her and I could hear Christian in the background. He sounded ready to go home. What a relief!

I have a VA meeting and lunch tomorrow. John and I have tickets for a Wild Game Dinner Saturday evening. It sure is hard to work in a diet.
