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. I always have a job to do.

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.

I have always loved movies. When I was a child I got to see (if my sister Jean gave me a dime) movies at the theater on Saturdays for a couple of hours. How I loved movies! I envy kids today.

Rhonda's Mother, Rosa Lee Blakley, is in the red top in the front row. On her right is an empty chair for Rhonda's Father Marvin Blakley.
When I checked into the Wisteria Inn there was a bag for me. It contained two jiggers of vodka, a bag of seashells, and a box. The box contained some moss and a poem.
