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.

This FGS Convention sure demands a lot of getting out of chairs.

I went to six one hour presentations today. I had to get out of a chair every time as the next class was in a different room. 4500 steps just going to classes.

Wednesday, Sep 7, classes were:
1. Copyright issues.
2. Building a website.
3. Effective editing and writing.

Thursday, Sep 8, classes were:
4. Workshop on using Word.

Friday, Sep 9, classes were:
5. Civil War Veteran records.
6. Power Point presentations.
7. Search techniques with FamilySearch.
8. Whats new at FamilySearch?
9. Tracing Scot-Irish Ancestors.
10. Apps Galore for the Genealogist.

Tomorrow will  be just as full as today. I may attend a lecture on Twitter!

Here is a picture out of the past. It is a pumper well in the Coalinga oilfield in Fresno County, California.
