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.

Bury St Edmunds

Edmunds was the last Anglo Saxon king of Suffolk. In the 900s the Danes cut his head off. He was shortly made a Saint and an Abbey was built and named Bury St Edmunds. The abbey grew to be one of the biggest and richest abbeys in Europe. Henry the VIII put an end to that and it is now ruins There is a large and beautiful Cathedral on the site.
