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.

D-Day Beaches.

On May 27 to May 30 my daughter Nancy and I will be staying in Bayeux, France. I am looking forward to this stay. We will be a few minutes from the start of battlefield tours. We will see the beaches and the American Cemetery. Nearby Caen has a great D-Day Museum. We will spend a day visiting Mont St Michel. We will see the Bayeux tapestry which depicts the events of another strategic battle, the Norman victory at Hastings over the Anglo Saxons.

Bayeux is really in a great location. Picked by my excellent tour guide, Nancy Wright.



I am getting in shape for the steps in our hotel (Reine Mathilda) and our visit to Mont St Michel. A reader of this blog, Carrie, has advised me to build up my endurance for the steps at Mont St Michel.
