Prune picker

Prune picker is a Depression Era term for a native Californian. It was not a complement. In the thirties when I was a boy there were times that I was the only prune picker in a group. Everyone else had been born somewhere else.

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.
