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.

LC George, a most unforgettable character.

Lincoln Parish, Louisiana lost a sweet soul. LC George passed away suddenly yesterday. He could fix anything and do it with a smile. It has been said that he supported himself for forty years with a screwdriver and a can of Freon. Here are some pictures of him from past Prunepicker Blogs.

These are from five years ago at the retirement party for LC's wife, Earnestine.

LC and Ernestine.

Theses are more recent photos, taken on a trip to Swartz to visit Rosa Blakley and Rhonda Ray.

LC will be missed. A fine Southern Country Gentleman. I want to express my sympathy to Ernestine and family.


  1. What a lovely tribute. His brother attends my church in wm.

  2. I am Lc's oldest grandchild. On behalf of our family, thank you for this sweet tribute. He is greatly missed!

  3. The above comments on my blog post about LC warm my heart. Thank you so much.
