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.

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 need to walk more. I am going back on Nutrisystem soon. I can not start yet. A group from the Jefferson Corner Liars Club is going to Moons for steak tonight. 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.
