Making my way home from the east coast I stopped at a convenience store on the outskirts of Zanesville, Ohio a little after 7:00 AM. There was one person who stood out. You may have guessed that Bob was that one. Wearing his senior citizen sombrero, he was a natural for my 100 Strangers set.
This great and unusual hat was given to Bob at a birthday celebration for him. His friends know that Bob loves funny hats, so they often give him hats that they see. Bob also has a chicken hat, a hot dog hat, and a crab hat. I didn't get to speak with Bob for very long, but he was a very friendly and gentle man. Everyone in the store seemed to appreciate his great smile and demeanor.
