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.

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..
