AUG 30, 21 .. WHAT ABOUT BOB ? .. HAPPY 85TH BIRTHDAY TO YOU BOB !!



What about Bob ?

Well there is a lot about Bob for me !

To begin with, Bob was born on August the 30th and I was born, six days later, on September the 5th. So we are, to coin a phrase, sort of litter mates. We lived in, and we grew up in, the same neighborhood. I lived on one street and Bob lived on the parallel street one over from my street. 

For all of us, our memories only go back so far. I myself can only remember back to about the age of four. But Bob I clearly remember back to the beginning of my life memories.

Bob and I began school (Kindergarden) each of having just turned age 5 together and I clearly remember Bob from our Kindergarden days together. One favorite memory I have is that Bob was a bit of a cut-up. One day in Kindergarden (if I remember this correctly) Bob got into 'dutch' with our Kindergarden teacher and was put into the large open ended box that held our playthings to 'cool down'.

And we grew up during the WWII 'war years'. 

We went to Elementary School, Junior High School and High School. Somewhere in the mix, Bob lost a grade and slipped behind me.

And? I could write a short tome about the lifetime of memories that I have around Bob.

His Dad was really something special. 

So Bob, here's to you ..

HAPPY 85TH BIRTHDAY

Your Ally, Cap

Although this brief writing is about Bob, I must mention that we had a third chum. His name was Ed. Like Bob, Ed was born in August. Ed is still alive and Bob and Ed are closely in touch but Ed is slipping and is living in a care home for senior citizens. I send Ed misc pieces of mail from time to time and I call him but, sad to say, Ed no longer clearly remembers who I am.
