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.

Scenes around Port Townsend/Chimacum.

Corrie came to visit me and stayed over Monday night. We had such a good time. We hope we can do it again some day.


Corrie and I are seated in the two seat window booth at the Mexican restaurant in down town Port Townsend. Jackie and I sat in this booth many times over many years. We could see the sidewalk traffic and some ocean traffic out the window. I am a walking nostalgic nut. Thanks to Corrie for filling in for Jackie.



The Blue Moose Restaurant at the Port Townsend shipyard. Corrie bought me breakfast here.



This organization chart for the Evergreen Coho Resort was drafted by me 25 years ago. It is still posted on the board in the same prominent position. It is an heirloom.


The drafting area is still in use and neat.


The picture board directory was my suggestion. I was told to make it.



Larry and Jo Anderson. Larry ran the coop backhoe. He still does at 92.


Paul Cooper was the Resort Architect.



The Landscape Committee put on a fund raiser dinner while I was there. A nice lady introduced me as a worker in the early years of the Resort. She was most kind and I received a good hand. Many old friends came to my table to say hello. 

Tuesday night Poker game.


Clubhouse buuletin board with posters for various coming events.


Front of Clubhouse.






Downtown Port Townsend scenes.




This was Jackie's favorite downtown store. "April Fool and Penny too!"


Across the water scene. That is the crane at the Indian Island Navy ammo dump. Tallest structure in the county. The end of a ferry is visible on the right.
