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.

Ernestine George Retires.

After many many years Mrs George retired from the Skip Russell Insurance Agency. She had the biggest cake and was given the nicest watch I have ever seen. Here is a picture of Ernestine at her Retirement. Behind her is her husband LC George. LC is a famous handyman and AC repairman. It has been said that he has made a living for forty years with a screw driver and a can of Freon.

Many pictures were taken.

This is Ernestine's old office. It looks so nice.

I want to congratulate Ernestine on her career and retirement. Instead of spending her days with Skip, she is going to spend them with LC. She does not seem to ever win.
