Hello again and I hope you are well today. I got an email the other day and someone indicated they were looking forward to knowing a little about what makes me tick, so I thought I might described a bit about Bob for you all:
EDIT: Sorry I have confused so many but am not writing about myself here rather a friend of mine with the same name.
Bob has hazel eyes and auburn hair;
Bob drives a car from Sweden;
Bob grew up near Boston, Massachusetts USA;
Bob loves to attend sporting events;
Bob is very athletic even till this day, and he has the cutest butt;
Bob also has the cutest dimples;
Bob went to one of this countries bests business schools to get his masters degree, and I am not telling you which one;
Bob has never used drugs;
Bob used to have a Mohawk and an earring;
Bob used to have a six-pack but time has smoothed his abs;
Bob used to run long distances; and
My friend Bob doesn’t know how much I love him.
If you had met Bob during our college years when we met I think most of you would have understood how I felt about him, he was just so fit as my English friends say. Bob shares my name but unfortunately not my orientation. You know when you see someone who just makes you stop and stare, well meet Bob. The first time I saw him on campus I just knew I had to get to know him. That turned out to be easy as Bob and I both started out in engineering school. We found ourselves in several courses together. At some point he decided engineering wasn’t for him and he wanted to change majors. I was heart broken and remember trying to get him to change his mind.
As time marches on, I will probably tell you more about Bob as we travel down this road together but I have worked with Bob every day now for the last 15 years. It’s not perfect but every day I get to be with him and have him close. Bob is one of my best friends and loyal to a fault. He really is one of the things that keeps me going and gives me a reason to go to work every day. I hope you all have a friend like Bob someday as he clearly is one thing that makes me tick. Let me know if you have or had a Bob in your life or someone like him even closer to you.
Gay Marriage Update
On a side note, today Maine and last week New Hampshire’s legislators moved bills to legalize Gay Marriage. Rhode Island is now the only state in the New England which hasn’t legalized Gay Marriage or moved to legalized it. Maine and New Hampshire are following up on what Vermont did a couple of weeks ago when Vermont became the fourth state in the nation to legalize gay marriage. New York’s Governor has also submitted a bill to legalize Gay Marriage to his Legislators so New York could be next. California's Supreme Court has until the end of June to announce it position on the appeal of Prop 8. Guys if things go right we could have Gay Marriage eight states before the summer is done. Additionally the District of Columbia (where our nations capital is for all you readers form outside our borders) has agreed with New York and will recognize gay marriages from other states. I think the tide is turning and soon it will be legal through out our nation.
Once again thanks for all the support and I have to apologize to some of you for not having the time to thank all of you who I have not previously met and I will get an email to each of you soon. I have just been busy with real life issues and such. I guess in this economy I should be happy that I am busy but its getting tough out there for a lot of people and declaring bankruptcy appears to be a new trend for so many. So thanks for your patience and support.
And to all my friends’ writing papers, preparing for finals or working hard in any endeavor I would like to join my friend RC, a humorist, artist, a musician and University professor, in wishing you good luck and success. If you haven’t read RC’s blog Mental Doodles as of yet consider adding it your blog list as he posts almost daily and even Torchy reads it. . Lots of love to all and thanks for coming by today!
Take care and be safe
