Picture from Susan's blog, Stony River

Check over at Susan's blog, Stony River, for more microfiction Monday! They should read quickly because our requirement is 140 characters or less.


These four photos were taken at the Round Tower Park (6th century), Glendalough in County Wicklow, Ireland. Our visit was in May of 2007. That was the time I fell and broke my kneecap at Powerscourt Gardens south of Dublin. You can read about that one here.
Osborne is one of our family names. We were pleased to find this tombstone. Here Mary Osborne died in 1927 so it is a more modern burial place in this old cemetery. The Osbornes have been solid citizens of the area for many years. Next time I may stop at the Osbourne's [sic] Pub for fish and chips

Grave-robbers! Not a nice thought! But when you're dead you're dead!
 
Grave robbing swine. Whatever would we do without them?
 
Is County Wicklow on the Isle of Man?
 
Never saw that one coming. Great take on this.

I'm new: Irony.
 
Robbing a grave is so ick! But perhaps a poor medical student needed a cadaver? Them in the ground is done with 'em!

Just the kind of place I'd expect to find ghouls and Jims.
 
You packed a lot of drama in there. Great job!
 
Somehow that is strangely moving.
 
Heartless they were, indeed stealing something the others wanted. Nicely done Jim.
 
Thanks for sharing your other pictures too. They are so interesting to look at. :O)
 
I knew that was an Irish graveyard! Yes, those grave robbers are swine.

Great photos of an old cemetery in Ireland. I love the celtic crosses.
