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.

Studying like mad for my trip to England and France.

I have google to help me study for the trip that my daughter Nancy and I are taking on May 15. (That is 83 days from today, but as Nancy stated "who is counting?")

I have been furnished several travel books by Nancy and grand daughter Joy.

Notice the book marks. Three books on England and two on France. It is fun and exciting going over the walks and sights ahead! I read for awhile and then I google for awhile. I am learning a lot of history.


  1. I'm glad to see that you're holding up your end of the deal. I'm very interested to hear what your plans and ideas are.

  2. I am training to be in shape to keep up with you!

  3. Actually, I'm a very low-key traveler. I can't walk very long distances without resting or I am in pain. And I love a good "down dat" every now and then when I take things slowly and just enjoy being in such a different place. It's not even possible to see everything and that can put a lot of pressure on a traveler. I do like to plan ahead and

  4. Oops, things froze up before I could finish my thought. I like to study and plan ahead so I won't miss something I would have loved to see if only I'd known. I rarely get to everything I've planned but I still come home with an amazing amount of memories.

  5. I was hoping that we would have a day or two where we just laid back and acted like citizens. There is so much. I have the British Library on a must see list. So much to see in London. Just have to miss a lot. Might plan to go back in a few years if I am so lucky to be up to it.
