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.

(Widower 10) More 3rd Farewell Tour.

I am on the return trip from my 3rd Farewell Tour of the West Coast. I have stops in Hanford, Coalinga, Bakersfield, Van Nuys, Dana Point, Chino, Fort Mojave, Meteor Crater, Socorro,  Las Cruces, Terlingua, Fort Stockton, Fredericksburg, College Station, and finally Ruston. Some of these stops were interesting and/or photogenic. I guess I am a tourist!

From Modesto it was a short trip to Hanford. My niece Donna Sue lives in Hanford. I met a
sweet little girl in Hanford. She is Bella. Bella is (now get this) my great great great grandniece. Yes that is three greats. So I am a great great great grand uncle. You can call me Chuck.

I visited folks in Coalinga, Bakersfield, and Van Nuys before I moved in with my daughter Nancy and husband Bob in Dana Point. Here is a picture of Nancy and Bob. I had just told them that I was going home Tuesday.

During this visit I looked at some of my old haunts. See blog I used to work here. I had a nice luncheon visit with my oldest son, Christopher David. I did not know it. This was my last visit with Chris. He had an accident and passed away in January, 2011. See Lunch with Chris.    Our lunch was in August, 2010. 

I had a lovely visit with my grand daughter Annie in Chino. She is so busy with her husband and three sons. What a great family! We visited the Chino Farmer's Market. See Chino Farmer's Market.

On to Fort Mojave, Oatman, and the Colorado Casinos in Laughlin, Nevada. I had a nice vissit with my niece Sandy. What a nice lady. See visit Fort Mojave.
 Cool Fort Mojave.
 Downtown Oatman.
