bullet  General Notes:

Sally Packard wrote me (E.Woods) 11-2-2005:
"Arthur Greathead had a "prune ranch" at San Jose, Calif. He had three or four sons, one named Sandy. Each Christmas they sent us a large box of prunes. I grew up thinking that prunes were cheap and undesirable food that you had to eat. When Lyle [husband to Sally] was in the navy we visited and Uncle Ernie was out there we visited them. They had a modest farmhouse with the prune and apricot trees growing so close around the house that the Bordeaux mixture that they used to spray the trees was all over the walls."
