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.

Goodbye 88! I am 89 now.

Today is the start of my ninetieth year of breathing. To celebrate I requested brisket and apple pie. And a gala party.

I got my every wish. I was treated so nice. I really appreciated it. Thanks to John, Kerry, David, Joy, Ethan, Ross, and Christian. Today is high on my list of best birthdays!

Thanks also to those folks in Facebook land with their thoughtful greetings. I am not sure that i acknowledged your greeting properly but thank you.


  1. I just stumbled onto you and all I have to say is you are amazing looking to be this age. You most definitely look nowhere near your age and Wow to being a blogger to boot. Congratulations. Now I'll go back to reading your posts, beginning with the very first one. So happy to make your acquaintance, Mr. Monson.


    1. Thanks for your kind remarks. I hope you enjoy some of my blogs.
