This is Bob. Bob is an icon from my childhood. He used to stand outside Googie style roadside establishments called Bob's Big Boy Restaurants. My family stopped at one on a road trip and I remember he was taller than me, taller than my dad, even. Well, I met him again the other night, only he was peeking at me from an antique and collectibles shop window in Seattle's Cascade neighborhood late at night. I feel an episode of the Twilight Zone coming on. . .
