Norm came home from the Monkee Convention in a very thoughtful frame of mind and announced on Monday that he needed to go shopping asap on his own into town and as he would need to visit a lot of shops could be gone for a quite a while. No amount of coaxing could draw out the reason why but he was seen emptying his money box and putting it all in his pockets before leaving to catch the early morning bus. We expected to see him come home laden with shopping bags but no he came sauntering up the garden path with nothing more than a very small packet tucked under his arm.
Whilst he was busy hanging up his coat I had a quick peep inside the box.
Oh yes he has!!
Here's the happy couple. It did take a monkey gathering though for Norm to realise what a gem he had under his very own roof.
Sammy is on cloud nine.
