Ruins of old Abbey and Castle   Medieval wall and Gate

I'm typing this on an old desktop that has seen better days. While I was bringing my infected laptop in the hope of having the many Trojon Horses removed I wandered around the older part of Wexford - the remains of the Viking/Norman medieval wall, the Westgate tower, and the remains of Selkskar Abbey. The returning crusaders called the Augustinian Abbey  "St. Sepulchre", but this name gradually became "Selskar".  Among the many visitors to Wexford in the 1170s was Henry II of England reputed to be doing penance at the Abbey for the murder of Thomas a Beckett.

Sorry, I know what you mean,
but I'm having a Tex Avery moment,
imagining you trying to get an old desktop
into the platten of a typewriter...

And those ~are~ nice pix...
