prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. (Native born Californian) Retired oilfield. I am an old man. (90) 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, bluegrass, and civic events. 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

They seem so just like pretty beach towns of anywhere. There is a special feeling to beach air. But what horrible things happened here.

1944 was a busy year. Jackie married me on June 3, D-day was June 6, and I was wounded on Peleliu in September. If I think selfishly, my wedding was the most important.

  1. 1946 was the year you were going to college full time and had baby Nancy.
    Also a pretty busy year.
