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.

Rattlesden. Birthplace of my 8th great grandfather and home to the 447th Battle Group in World War II.

The 447th Battle Group of the 8th Air Force was stationed at the Rattlesden Airfield during the air war against Germany. The 447th flew B-17s. While blogging about Rattlesden I have received several comments from people involved in the war at Rattlesden. I may see the remains of the field as it is now the home of the Rattlesden Gliding Club.
