Two Gun Bob



See this guy? This is Bob.

It’s his birthday today. He would have been 110 years old if he hadn’t taken his own life in 1936.

He was a bit of an oddball. He lived his whole life in a small town in Texas and never traveled very far from there.

They made a movie about him, though. Well, it was really about his girlfriend. Vincent D’Onofrio played him.


Bob wrote a lot stuff in his short life and people still read it today. I have five big trade paperbacks in the bookshelf to my right that is filled with his words.

Bob created this guy:


So, Happy Birthday, Bob!
