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.

Lawrence Gibbs and the "Little Big Band"
Last night I wandered down to the theatre district of Ruston, Louisiana to listen to a program of soft jazz. I was an avid big band fan in the thirties and forties. Lawrence Gibbs got a great band together and put on a benefit show (for the Dixie) at the Dixie Theatre. The show was great and I enjoyed the evening.
