prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. (Native born Californian) Retired oilfield. I am an old man. (91) I blog a lot about my body and getting old. As I approach death life gets more interesting. More interesting is not good. I still drive. I attend sports, music, and civic events. I am writing my memoirs. I attend swim class three times a week. Some of my blogs might be interesting. A lot of my blogs are silly and trivial. None are very long.

My five sisters.

I ran across this happy picture of my five sisters. I do not have many pictures of the five together. Seeing it warmed my heart on this cold Christmas Eve. They were just as sweet as they look. I estimate that the picture was taken around 1940 when I was a teenager. Standing from the left is Nita, Thelma, Donna, and Jean. Sitting in front is Dallas. Dallas was my only living sibling who just passed away at the age of 98.  I have many happy memories of my sisters.

Nita did the Charleston for me and made biscuits and salt pork gravy.
Thelma made ice cream and sent me fruit cakes over seas.
Donna made waffles with walnuts in them and made a wonderful 1000 island dressing,
Jean gave me dimes for the Saturday movie and bought school shoes for me.
Dallas made me pancakes with Karo syrup.

I remember food, huh?  They all put me up from time to time and gave me loving attention.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
