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.

Roller Derby

Judy and John Collins drove me over to the Monroe Civic Center last night. Thank you folks! I really enjoyed the evening. A roller derby game was presented by the Roe City Rollers. The Rollers opponent was the Mississippi Brawl Stars. Some game! From the selfie you can see that Judy, John, and the Prunepicker are deep in the game.

My last roller derby game that I attended was 55 years ago in Los Angeles. I guess that I am not too rabid a fan.

The game was proceeded by the Colors and the singing of the Star Spangled Banner,






Here is a short video.
