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.

Grandfather list.

The list below is of the paternal grandfathers of my children. The list was worked up for the enlightenment of one of my children, but all of my children and their children might be interested in the list.

I realize that most of the brains and talent comes down in the blood of the maternal grand parents, but I do not have that data readily available. I must apologize for the incomplete list.
