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.

Berlin Wall tear down. Rebecca Bird Haley. "I was there!"

Rebecca gave a great talk last night at the Lincoln Parish Library. She was teaching and living in West Berlin when the Berlin Wall was torn down. She had tables covered with souvenirs and walls full of posters about the historic event. Her talk was illustrated by many excellent slides. She was assisted by Mr Ben Haley.

There was a large appreciative audience. I really enjoyed Rebecca's talk. I gained a feeling of what it was like to be there when the wall came down.
