My Valentine

Hi Joey,
Many of your readers are asking for “more” after my last posting of “the beach guys.” Here is my Valentine, my husband Bob, The Love of My Life. Photo was taken about 1949, when he was recently discharged from the Navy. He was stationed in the Asiatic Pacific on LCT and LST landing crafts during WW2  as a diesel machinist in many major battles. At the Weight Lifting Club of the old YMCA, Bob was known as “Big Bob” by his many younger body building admirers. He never entered any contest, but you have to agree he would have won first prize. Bob will be 90 years young this year. He has discovered the fountain of youth, as he continues to lift weights in his home gym.
