Default Norm Caught Hoeing Around

I was talking to Norm this morning and he let slip of his early afternoon plans. So I slipped over and caught him in action. Norm had the loader and the "Rabbit Diesel" backhoe in operation. The backhoe is a creation of Norm's and seems to work just fine.

1 - Norm on the backhoe
2 - Norm on the loader
3 - the left side of the loader
4 - the left side of the engine
5 - right side of the motor

Jack said I should be prepared to defend myself, I don't see anything that needs defending. It may not be elegant, but it beats a shovel.

Looks to be a right nifty piece of equipment to me. Wish I had one just like it.

Evidence is still being collected and processed, he will need to defend himself, as soon as the evidence can be bent into our..........I mean, when the evidence is conclusive.

Norm, do you need defense counsul? I can recommend a few good ones, but they don't come cheap!

I hope the Spanish Inquisition isn't your role model for a fair trial.
Personally, I think Norm is completely innocent of all the trumped up charges.

Spanish Inquisition, hell no it will be in English

Trials go much smoother if the verdicts are known before hand.
