he plays solely for the fun and not the skill: “I am a duffer, not a real golfer.” Fishing was an activity he enjoyed with his
wife who, according to Bob, was a greater fisherwoman: she would often spend an entire day on their fishing boat. They
predominantly fished for largemouth bass, although Bob also enjoyed fishing with his father in North Bay Ontario for
walleyes and muskies. When Bob would hunt, he would take his one deer annually and then enjoy deer hamburger and
bologna the rest of the year.
Bob admits there are other activities he enjoys in addition to the top three noted above, including Mexican Dominos and
playing cards. When asked what card game his favorite is, Bob responds that he enjoys the “goofy ones” such as Hand
and Foot and Up and Down the River. When Bob moved to Rainbow Springs, he cleaned house by giving away over
1,000 books that he had accumulated over the years. Although Bob claims to enjoy reading almost anything, his favorites
of all time are futuristic detective novels by J.D. Robb (a pen name for popular author Nora Roberts).
“Whoever laid out the Woodlands did an excellent job,” declares Bob. He loves the fact that there are so many homes
in the Woodlands, yet each house feels private and as if it is out in the country. If the pleasing aesthetics of Bob’s new
neighborhood were not enough, he has been blessed with wonderful neighbors. In the short time he has lived in Rainbow
Springs, Bob relates he has experienced many kindnesses from the Rainbow Springs community. His neighbors have
collected his mail when he had to leave town, and personally delivered it the moment he pulled into his driveway.
Another neighbor mowed Bob’s lawn simply because the neighbor knew Bob was busy getting settled.
“Other than the obvious response of bringing my wife back… well, that is the only thing in my life that could be better
right now.”
