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.

Margaret Shadow. The little old lady from Pasadena.

I had a nice visit today with Margaret. I enjoyed seeing her lovely home.

Margaret's daughter Anita Lawson is staying with Margaret. Her dog Dixie is a lot of company.

Sure would like to see the red car at the Senior Center. Take my word for it but the plate on the front of the car has these words on it. Little old lady from Pasadena.

Margaret was born in Santa Monica in 1914. She moved to Ruston in 1936 and has lived here since then. She is a sharp bridge player and a dear friend.

  1. Dear Prune Picker,

    We hate to sound so harsh, but is Margaret still living? I am a reporter with our local newspaper here in Ohio and she has become somewhat of a local celebrity and we would like to interview her.
