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.

Flag Retirement Ceremony June 14, 2017.

Thanks in large part to the efforts of JD Harper and his staff of dedicated volunteers from the Ruston VFW a Flag Retirement Ceremony was held this morning in Ruston. Many of those folks are somewhere in these photos.

Many thanks and appreciation for the efforts and help of the Boy Scouts and the Forest Lawn Memorial Park. The Park furnishes a dedicated spot in the cemetery for the ceremony.

By the way, today is Flag Day.

The Scouts demonstrate the correct procedure for folding a flag.


The correct procedure for preparing a hot dog was demonstrated by able volunteers.

Entrance to the Forest Lawn Memorial Park on Highway 80 in Ruston, Louisiana.

Gene Murphy is holding up the tree. Isn't that a fine beard?


JD says "see you all next year!"
