Last Minute 5K For A Great Cause & Free Photos At Bob's Photobooth Bus

Hello Bob's Photobooth Bus Followers,

Friends from our neighborhood have a boy, Benicio, who suffered a brain tumor. He's the honoree this year as Patient Champion for the Run for Gus 5K. Today is an event I just found out about if you guys want to run. You can do a show up/sign up.

From their post:

We hope to see you at the race on Thursday! We have our own tent for Team BennyStrong and will have everyone's t-shirts and bibs for the race there. We'll be bringing Benny from the hospital and should be there around 5:30 PM. If you haven't signed up but would like to join us, you can sign up when you arrive. 

See story and details here and a profile of his struggles that aired on WGN last night;

I'm donating my bus tonight for the event and will be at Peggy Notebaert museum circle drive from 5:30 until the after-party ends (10:30 PM ish). Nice night, free photos and a great cause, get off the couch and on the Charity Bus!

It’s All About Me, Me, Me, Me, Me.  Who the heck is the Bob behind and do you really want to know?  Anyway………

My name is Bob and I’ve been told I joke too much.  The naming of my website came from my trip to Nepal when after the first couple of days trekking to the Mt. Everest Base Camp our Sherpa Guide, Limbu, confided in my friend the following; “Bob is a nice guy but Bob Joke Too Much”.  Once he started to understand and/or tolerate my sarcasm (maybe 21 days in) we became good friends and supporters of his guide business.  So it all worked out but now my friend tends to remind me of that quote when I go too far with my satirical humor.

Anyway......I was born a poor black child of a sharecropper on the front porch of my home in the Mississippi Delta.  Not buying that?  OK, just a middle class, blue collar kid in an all-white, Irish Catholic neighborhood boarding the Southwest side of Chicago.  One of seven children raised by a normal Mom and Dad who obviously believed the Catholic Church recommendation of the Rhythm Method as an effective form of contraception.  My Wife, two boys and I live in Chicago.

Observing and experiencing life since 1963.  I have been extensively educated at Father Mulsoff Industrial School for Incorrigible Kid’s, Brother Duffin High School for Vulnerable Boys and The Institute for Applied Nonsense.  Note that even though the 1st two schools had known molesters as “teachers”, I was never once approached for molestation in spite of the fact that I was very susceptible, small, skinny and weak boy.  Due to current litigation against the Catholic Church for discrimination, that’s all I can say on the subject.

I have no qualifications for being a writer.  However, this will not stop me from publishing many of the yearly 17,000 thoughts that pop into my mind on the website and anywhere else. I will cover topics including parenting, gun control, donkeys, idiots, politics, religion, racism and any other controversial subjects I find worthy in an attempt of provoking laughs, stimulating deep thinking and/or just pissing off the politically correct with my satirical prose.  My thoughts and opinions will appear on my website and all other social media outlets no matter how much a waste of time until I die.
