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 interesting. 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.

The blogs are posted in the first column. The second column presents a condensed story of my life. And an archive of past posts. And links to blogs that I follow. The thumb nail pictures near the top of the second column are links to the most visited prune picker blogs. As determined by blogger software

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.
