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.

Jennings High football player signs to play for Louisiana Tech.

This picture was taken in the front room of the Adams family home in Jennings, Louisiana. John Morgan Adams is seated in the center signing up. Seated with him is his proud Mom and Dad. Standing is the Tech Coach EJ Lewis and the Jennings High School Coach Hudson. I am a little late reporting this event. It took place 45 years ago in 1967. But I liked the picture. It is a good picture of John and his parents.

The picture below of John and EJ is a little more recent. It was taken in 2012. John and EJ both live in Ruston and see each other often.


  1. An important piece of Louisiana history. Love the pictures.

    1. You are so right. It is such a good picture of John and his folks.
