Norm Abram is Retiring

Norm Abram's retirement from This Old House was announced yesterday.

PBS will air a tribute show to him titled The House that Norm Built. While Norm is 72 and has not appeared on camera for a while, it is sad to see him described as "hanging up his tool belt." I hope he continues woodworking in his retirement, as 72 years old is certainly not too old to do most things with wood. I hope he isn't ill, and I wonder if there's a deeper story to this.

I'm hoping to see him on a YouTube channel, but he doesn't seem to have much of an online presence.

Here's to the legend himself!

This old house was right on time for us buying our first fixer upper. Really liked Norm in both shows. Little bit of GlOOOO stuck with me also. My favorite Norm quote "What's a duchman? Its a PATCH!"

Vila was pompous in my opinion.

TOH taught me how to do a lot of things way before the internet.
