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.

Cross country racing at Jimmie Davis State Park.

We went to Caney Lake today, My first visit there. The Jimmie Davis State Park is on the shore of Caney Lake. The park was the site of a large cross country race. My great grandson Ethan ran the mile and came in second! We are all very proud of Ethan.





The last hundred yards or so of the race was on beach sand. Can you imagine running a hard mile race and then trying to dash the last of the race in deep sand? Pretty tough.



Ethan and his medal.

Jimmie Davis is a former Governor of Louisiana. He wrote the song "You are my sunshine".
