- The Voyage of the Gnusmobile
NBT – I cried on the way home in the car yesterday. Once the awesomeness of it all passed, I suddenly had a realisation why I was in the car and off I went. Managed to stop before I met Ambrose at the services. I was on the verge of going again while I was speaking to tj on the phone so handed the phone back to Ambrose quite sharply, sorry for that tj.
The journey home was a mixed bag of emotions. Happy to have a car again, but really upset and sad why this had all happened. Quite a few tears on the way home too. Crying isn’t for softies, although I think i have probably cried enough so far for all of you.
Thankyou all again for everything you have done. I know i keep repeating it but I genuinely mean it.Posted 8 months agomercuryrevSubscriber
When there’s so much anger and divide around, it’s incredibly heart warming and reassuring to read this and to thankfully be able play a very small part in.
Gnusmas, you really don’t need to say thank you to anyone here, your courage, strength and consideration of others is what made everyone do this for you. I know you struggle with ‘doing the right thing’, but you are. More than you know right now. Keep doing what you’re doing.
To everyone who has played a part in this, big or small, well done, I’m sure you don’t want to, but feel proud of what you’ve done.
Ambrose, you are a special person, I’m sure Gnusmas wouldn’t be where he is right now without your quiet help and support. Thank you, you’re an inspiration.Posted 8 months agoBunnyhopMember
Claps hand in glee. Happy, happy, joy, joy.
Now gnusmas you get that lovely bike of yours out and ride into the wind. (I need some photos as proof).
P.S. I’m sure everyone will agree that in a year from now, we can collect some funds for more tax, M.O.T and insurance purposes. But that’s in the future.Posted 8 months agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Despite all the tossery, this place never ceases to amaze.
Lovely to see the pictures of you all and if anyone fancies meeting up in North Wales at the arse end of January, the beers and accomodation (climbing club hut, nowt fancy!) are on me.
Ambrose, Rebecca is still wearing the necklace and asks me to thank you every time I speak to her.Posted 8 months ago
Aye its funny the image you have of folk. I had Ambrose as a huge gentle giant of a man. Molgrips as short and wiry with a shock of black hair – sort of Dennis the menace look 😉
Goodness only knows the mental image folk had of me – and the scratty beard and hair has now gone so I no longer look like those pics anywayPosted 8 months ago
Been out to do a bit of shopping this afternoon after picking the little one up from nursery. Stocked up on a few things that we really needed, like milk.
A couple of things i noticed earlier. First thing, i definitely won’t get the car seats in the way that i hoped. I need to work this out so will probably wait til Saturday to do this when i have more time. Second, i found a pair of cycling shoes behind the drivers seat. I am guessing they are molgrips shoes, seeing as he was the only one to cycle to get the car. More evidence of the journey though, which is nice.
Few more pics to add to the story.
Not sure whose these are, need to find out so I can send them back
He found the window switch
I think the smile says it allPosted 8 months ago
