prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. (Native born Californian) Retired oilfield. I am an old man. (91) 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, music, and civic events. I am writing my memoirs. 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.

They really take good care of school kids in Franklinton, Louisiana.

I spent Monday night with the Millers in Franklinton. My four year old  (youngest) great granddaughter , Johnny Lynn, lives there with Pop and Mom Miller. I was able to ride along when Johnny Lynn was picked up Monday evening and when she was dropped off Tuesday morning.

I was very impressed by the procedure used by the school. Parents drive and park in lines two abreast. The children are held in a big holding room and are escorted from the door to their parent's car. The school coaches do the escort duty. The school is K through the 12th grade, so there is lots of staff. The morning drop off runs a little faster as children do not have to be sorted and identified at the door.

It is very impressive to see the system in operation.. It is a sad sign of our times that this is necessary..

It must be stressful to work at a school any more. Look at one of the precious students. Johnny Lynn.

She is so very much worth all of the care taken by the Franklinton School District.

  1. I was hoping you would blog some pictures from your trip to Katie's. I bet Johnny Lynn loved having Papa Chuck at her house!
