Meet Bob...

Just a while back I was out taking a few shots of the roses in our back yard, and I did not see or hear Bob appear out of nowhere....he does that from time to time. He calls me Pete for some reason I have never been able to figure out, and ever since I moved next door to him about 5 years ago, I have been designated as his "Mr. Fix It" guy. He throws absolutely nothing away, and when it is totally worn out, I get to restore it and give it the extended warranty that never came with the item....LOL! He just needs to make contact with someone. In his younger days, he worked on the railroad, and has all kinds of railroad toys laying around his house. As soon as I saw him peering over the fence at me, I immediately grabbed a couple of shots of him and his train engine. He never smiles much it seems, and I have never asked him why. It's none of my business anyway. He is a staunch supporter of the Royal Canadian Legion a few blocks away, and we often have a little chuckle at his expense counting the number of attempts he makes at backing his little car into his driveway at night....Hope you enjoy my little grab shot of him.....
