I hope Sir Wisdom will feel comfortable in his new home.

Its comforting to know he'll get the care he deserves and be in good company.

As far as I'm aware, Norman hasn't actually decided to move in to the home yet. If he does chose to go, I believe it won't be until the end of the year. I'll ask him on Sunday. I'm going to give him a forum t shirt when I see him.

Ross — Please pass on the best regards of the Another Fine Mess Tent in Northern Ireland to Sir Norm. A few years back he came over to Belfast to do a booksigning and I sneaked out of work to see the great man. When it came my turn I presented him with my autograph book to sign. "Did you not buy my book then?" quipped Norm, and winked broadly to the people in the bookshop. Naturally I was tongue-tied and just managed to blurt out, "I'm sorry, but I left my money wallet in work." "That's OK", he said. "Next time I come you can buy two." Sadly, he never did come over again but his autograph is a treasured possession. Sad

Norman says thank you to you all for your kind messages but he didn't give anything away as to whether or not the story was true about him going into a home. I didn't really push it to find out to be honest as I thought it was a bit personal. I told him how much we enjoyed his recent BBC radio show on Laurel and Hardy and I thanked him for keeping their memory alive by getting involved. Pics below.

see pics of Norman with his Laurel and Hardy Forum T Shirt here... http://www.laurelandhardyforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2801#27375

see last years pics with Norman here... http://www.laurelandhardyforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=509

Hello again Norman

Norman was looking VERY well indeed. I would go so far as to say he looks better than he did last year.

Fiona (my girlfriend) really hit it off with Norman and he didn't stop making her laugh the whole day. At one point, after he had signed the stuff I gave him, he put his head on Fiona's shoulder, closed his eyes and said "lets go to sleep".

Then, as we were leaving, he called Fiona back and gently grasped the back of her hand to kiss her goodbye like a gentleman, only Norman being Norman didn't kiss her hand,... he licked the back of her hand and all the way up her arm hehe. Here he is with Fiona... the photos of her and Norman are better than the ones I got with him. I'm so jealous.

At 91 years old Norman started work on a new project just after I presented him with Lucy's drawing.
