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.

Big excitement on HWY 544!

John put an add on Facebook for a Labrador puppy.The recent passing of his black lab Midnight left a big hole after loving us for eleven years. Last Wednesday John brought home the answer to his add.

This guy has caused much excitement. What is nicer than a new puppy? The family in West Monroe is making a trip over to Ruston tomorrow to see John's new puppy.

I have a cat, named Patches, that came out of the woods about a year ago. I have been trying to get her to be a loving pet. At least lay in my lap once in a while. No luck. She sleeps on my bed at night and eats my food but hardly any loving time. Well the puppy has made a big change in her.

For two hours yesterday morning I held the puppy on my lap while John went to Tech and worked out. Last night and today Patches has volunteered to jump on my lap and rub her head on me. The puppy has taught her her how to be a loving pet. (Jealousy?)
