Prune picker

Prune picker is a Depression Era term for a native Californian. It was not a complement. In the thirties when I was a boy there were times that I was the only prune picker in a group. Everyone else had been born somewhere else.

Most westerly and most easterly highway points in North America.

I saw the picture below on a nephew's Facebook entry and I remembered spending some time there while visiting an oil well for Schlumberger. Anchor Point, which is a little north of Homer is the most westerly highway point in North America.

Then I remembered driving through Main a Dieu, Nova Scotia when Jackie and I were RVing in Canada. I believe Main a Dieu is the most easterly highway point in North America. It is a little east of Sidney.

I wonder how far it is between these places. I have traveled it.
