No Sir, I don't, whats your Name?
Bob, Bob Brunoza!
A pleasure Bob, and thanks for letting me interview you!
What is the youngest age you can remember what you wanted to be when you grew up?
When I was about 10, I really wanted to be a school teacher. I am from Rijeka Croatia and came here 47 years ago. I spent 8 in New York and 39 here in Houston.
So what did you do for a living?
I was a Tool and Die Maker I retired in 2005 I am 72 years old. Now they call me Bob Birdman or The Mayor of Memorial park. I am going to be in a book they are publishing as the Mayor of the Park, yep me Bob the Birdman.
If you where to give anyone one piece of advice on life what would that be?
Keep moving and don't stop that is why I am here today after knee and hip replacements and colon cancer. I bounced back like a champion so just tell everyone, Keep On Moving! Did you write that all down?
Note: As I was shooting and interviewing Bob many regular patrons of the park stopped by Bob to pay homage and bring him more roasted peanuts to feed his birds.
