I cleaned the cab today, now that the seats etc are in, gave Norman a big scrub up from headlining down to his toes. vacuumed ,dusted, polished, cleaned the windows and now our Norman looks lovely inside the cab, I'm sure I heard whispered in my ear (Thank you,) from a voice in the distant Past, I even replied, Your so welcome Norman, my hubby has done this because you spiritually have pushed him ever onwards.
Yes there have been times so trying, with age against you, that there was thoughts of giving up, but as a good wife encouraging her husband in the wily words of, Only do what you can do, rest today, he has brought Norman nearly back to completion, I shall review all my scripts and chatters to you, as I intend to write this story properly into a book with all Normans history, the trials and tribulations, the ouches and expletives !!!!!! and the Why Doesn't this !!!! fit, nothing fits, this bolt is different to that, but Eric persevered, and that I am in Full Admiration, I myself have been looking for the right outfit to wear once Norman is totally done, I mean "Have to look the part" when we take him down memory lane, even found a receipt stuck right at the back of the cab,
10 Gallons Petrol £12.49 on the 21st January 1980, the same year Norman was Parked up, laid silent 39 years.
I have loved sharing these moments, and I cannot wait to show you him in his Glory, but not yet , still a little way to go.
