since James picked up Paisley Rose to start on her repairs. I have read enough blogs about restorations to know that there is always the possibility of finding many surprises when you start tearing into a vintage camper but I wasn't quite prepared for all that James has found. If money (or I should say the lack of) wasn't an issue then I wouldn't even bat an eye but in all reality, it is.
My initial excitement has somewhat waned but James is sure being a good sport. He's very competent and is eager for the experience. I wish I could just turn him loose but for now, we are going to have to make the repairs in stages. This means I won't be camping on a river bank any time soon. I know, without doubt, that it was meant for me to buy this little tin can that I call Paisley Rose so I have to believe that it just isn't meant for me to be on the river bank as soon as I had hoped. In the grand scheme of things, I have to remember that it's really not a huge deal. I'm very fortunate to even have this opportunity.
In the end, she'll be good as new (probably even better) and I'll be sitting back enjoying Justa lil Freedom 2 Breathe. I'll show ya a few pictures of the findings :-( and repairs, so far :-)..................laters
