prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. (Native born Californian) Retired oilfield. I am an old man. (90) I blog a lot about my body and getting old. As I approach death life gets more interesting. More 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.

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..
