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.

Visit to Washington, DC. Sept 2011.

This blog is to present some pics from my trip to Washington. The non Arlington Cemetery part of the visit. This is a picture of the Butcher home in Potomac, Maryland. I have been visiting this home for many years. It is a pleasant sight.

This is Daryl and Jane Butcher. Daryl is the son of my sister Jean. Jean, in many ways, was a mother to me. I feel that Daryl is a brother as much as a nephew of mine.

Jane is very nice and is also a gourmet cook. She cooked two wonderful dinners. One with salmon and one with halibut. Each of the meals had an exotic vegetable. Exotic to me. Lentils and boc choy. 

Daryl and I walked down the mall. We saw the front of the Smithsonian and other sights.

We went though the Holocaust Museum.

I took some pictures as we drove by the Martin Luther King Monument.

I thought that this rose on Jane's table was a beautiful color.
