Gerbelmann: There It Goes

Last weekend, Uncle Gerbelmann got moved to his new home:


Never an easy moment, is it?

The damage is not fatal, but it is really rather extensive. The front end has suffered most:


The tree, I am happy to report, is alive and well.

The new owner, Torsten, assured me that the van is fixable and indeed will be fixed. I’ll stay in touch, and report on the progress here. (Torsten is the same friend who will help me convert the Bug to Autostick, and build it an engine.) So Uncle Gerbelmann may be out of my yard (figuratively speaking — it hasn’t been in it since the crash in 2008), but not out of my life nor blog.
