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.

Senior Softball Game 2016. Prunepicker Katelynn Cook gets a hit and gets hurt on Saturday. Honored on Sunday at the Senior Game.

Katelynn played in her last Techster Home Series this last Saturday and Sunday. The Techsters played Southern Miss. In the first game Katelynn got a hit (her swing is pictured below) and scored a run. Unfortunately she hurt her hand sliding into home plate. 

Katelynn runs to play center field.

Katelynn is number14.

On Katelynn's right is one of her big fans. Her Mom, Patty Cook from Chowchilla, California.

Before the Sunday Senior Game the six Techster Seniors line up. We thank them for their playing and wish them the best.

The Athletic Director presents Katelynn with a Certificate.

Two nice Prune puckers.

Best wishes to Katelynn and her team mates for the future. My thanks to them for many hours of viewing pleasure.

    1. Meeting Katelynn and watching her play softball was the high light of the year for me! I fell in love with her. I did so want to attend her graduation (and the lunch after) but family obligations make it impossible. I wish her and her loved ones the very best for the future.
