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.

Katelynn Cook, Prunepicker Techster.

Katelynn was born in Chowchilla in California.Therefore she is a Prunepicker. I met Katelynn in my water exercise class where she is currently an instructor, She is a fielder on the Louisiana Softball Team. I watched a double header today between the Techsters and UAB. We won the first game and were within one run of UAB in the second game.

Katelynn is a nice person (even if she is a prunepicker) and I am sweet on her.

 Katelynn and the Techster behind her are actually 15 feet apart. The player behind Katelyn is in the warm up circle. Katelynn hit a long fly ball.

PS My hero Katelynn.

I went to a third game between Tech and UAB yesterday on Sunday. I left after four innings to attend the concert by the USAF Band. After I was gone (the last hit of the game) Katelynn hit a "Walk Off Home Run"  !!!!! I am so sorry that I missed it.

Congratulations Katelynn!
