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.

I took a tour of the world's largest building today.

Boeing makes big airplanes in it. It has a floor space of 98 acres. You could put California's Disneyland in it and have 12 acres left over for parking. 35000 workers work 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Many cafeterias and coffee stops.

Here is a pic of the typical airplane made in the building.


It would take a big building to put that thing together, huh? Here is an aerial photo of the building.


The tour bus loads, at a visitor center, a few miles from the building and Boeing did not allow cameras or cell phones. I took the following picture out the car window from the visitor center.


It was great tour. I got special treatment because I had a cane.
