Yes - it's Bob the Builder's birthday!
May 17th - many, many, many, many years ago......the Doctor slapped his bottom, Bob opened his mouth for the first time, and has been practicing his talking ever since!
If you have ever been in the store, you know Bob loves talking to people. It's one of the things he enjoys about the store. Ask him anything, and he will gladly engage you in a lively conversation.
Now, I doubt he will tell you how old he is, but you could try asking him. But I think you will agree he is young at heart. A bribe might help though....
So today, on his birthday, stop into the store, and maybe bring a piece of birthday cake, you know the kind, the one with no calories.
I've never seen him turn down a piece of cake, or a piece of pie, or a cookie, or a doughnut.....(as long as Jennie's not around that is) And I remember him telling me once that as long as it is a birthday cookie, or birthday doughnut etc - it's calorie free you know.
I know Jennie has made some fun plans for the weekend to celebrate Bob's birthday - I think the best gift he has is being with Jennie everyday, don't you agree?
And by the way, I heard he has been in the wood shop again coming up with a new storage solution. It's a holder for Distress Ink Pads. I will try and get a picture to post for you - but I already have a feeling it will be a winner!
Happy Birthday Bob! Many, many more!
