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.

Now wasn't that a busy five days? Made it to one track meet, made one softball game, made one baseball game, made one soccer game, and one Birthday party. Missed one football game,  missed one baseball game, and a 5k run. I missed some grand affairs. I can not get to everything, darn it!

Below are some miscellaneous photos from the five days.


Above is a photo from the track meet. That is Ethan in second place. He came in fourth. That is very good for a freshman. We are all proud of Ethan.

The next five photos are of the Techster softball game. They played ULM.






The next two photos are of a Killdeer and her four eggs. She pulled the old broken wing act on us but we were not fooled. Her eggs were very near a goal at Christian's soccer game. People had placed yellow tape around the eggs. We hope that they hatch, The gestation period is three weeks'



The next seven pictures were taken at Christian's soccer game.









One photo of the Tech baseball game.


Sometimes it gets busy for the old prunepicker.
