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.

Driving toward Shanksville, PA on 9/11/11.

Ten years ago today Flight 93 crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. I have always had a big place in my heart full of admiration of and sorrow for the brave people who brought the plane down. I wish that I could have been at the monument for the dedication ceremony but it did not work out. I will be driving 10 to 12 hours today and will spend the night close to Shanksville.
