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.

5 am Birthday Party!

When I walked into the meeting of the Jefferson Corner Liars Club this morning at 5 am this was the scene.

The Club must known that today is my 86th birthday.  There was a huge good looking cake with a candle, a birthday card, and an $100 debit card. I want to thank everyone for the present. The members all burst into singing the birthday song.
Jewette the photographer took my picture. Notice that the card has a likeness of me on the front.

The cake was a humming bird cake it was delicious. It is like a carrot cake without carrots.

The cake was made at home, from scratch by Rhonda Blakley. Rhonda is the treasurer of the JC Liars Club. The thing that really touched my heart and that I appreciated so much was that Rhonda took time out of her busy life to make a cake for my birthday. I love her like a daughter!
