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

June 3, 1944.



I married Jacqueline Lois Ireton 67 years ago. We met on a blind date while I was stationed at Camp San Luis Obispo. My Army unit was taking training at Moro Bay in amphibious combat landings. We were married three months later. I miss her every day. No matter how busy I keep myself, I still feel lonely. On September 13 I will be at her gravesite at the Arlington National Cemetery. The ashes of my oldest son, Chris will be placed in the gravesite with her ashes at 11 am..
