Bob & Mike

If my construction career doesnt pan out, perhaps I can still exploit the life and experiences of my travelling lightbulb, Bob.

A lovely woman I once met from New York, Shoshana, saw the effect of Bob with my niece and her daughter and wants to someday help me write a children's series of books. The idea is to rival Dora the Explorer or her cousin Diego....just think of it, Bob the explorer.....

I would very much like to do a book in the vain of a memoir or biography from the point of my light hearted buddy. I think it could be an interesting autobiography or a unique travel book that is nothing like anything anybody has read before.

My new buddy, Mike, on the other hand came up with the idea of the Book Of Bob ( the ingenius anagram being B.

Bob & The Floor Crew
O.B). Everyday on the building site his ideas got bigger and stronger. All the others seemed to not think either of us crazy either. His idea is to have a collection of interesting stories to punctuate "my illuminating adventures, five years travelling with a light bulb". The plan is to include some stories of people's first encounters with Bob and how quickly they began to discuss Bob has a "he" like a real person as opposed to the bulb that he is.

I may just take the easy way out and listen to my brother about publishing a book made up of a collection of the photos that I have of Bob through the years.

Would any of these books actually sell??

Well, probably not, unless of course you have already had the priviledge of meeting Bob. For me, it would be simply great to have my name attached to a book. Much more than that, it would give more weight and meaning to my future travels with Bob.

Anybody who does buy such a book having never encountered the roaming bulb, shall forever be labeled a danger to society and should be avoided at all costs!
