Things that make me happier than I can account for…

I have a friend. A dear friend actually. His name is Bob. Bob Loftin. Bob and I met through our mutual love of skateboards and geekdom. He’d done a trick tip sorta article for a little skate magazine I was working with, I saw he was just down the road from me (in real life), so I contacted him via the supplied email address. We’ve been buddies since then.

Bob is, very simply, one of the smartest people I know. His thirst for knowledge, and the ever elusive “more”, is more than inspiring. He’s got a love for skateboarding, knowledge, and basic goodness that we should all share. I’d be lying if I said I don’t sometimes feel somewhat less than 100% human when I’m around Bob, no insult to Bob…he’s just prone to reach further than my heroic state of apathy allows me to at times. (Translation…sometimes I suck).

In short, Bob’s a good guy.

Bob is on a bit of a hiatus/work trip. He hooked up with a mutual friend Mike “Money” Niemann from Cockfight Skateboards in “Hate Town” aka Houston. Seems as if Money took him to the top secret Cockfight DIY Playground “Mosquito Farm”.

Brother Bob got his grind on…

  1. Dammit, Mike, now I have to deny all goodness and claim to be an asshole. Thanks, man. Your friendship is a wonderful thing — you are my brother.

  3. Yeah…don't let it go to your head Poindexter (I don't really mean to besmirch you with that name…but you're smart enough to figure out the broader meaning…).

  5. Had a good time in Europe last week, but thing on the home front are a little rough right now (we're OK – just some disappointing stuff for the wife has things a bit less than optimal in the emotions department you know how that goes). Anyway, I was thinking about this pic, and found it, then read your post, and well goddamn if it didn't make me feel better man. Thanks. I will persist.
