I always admired my uncle. He was not afraid of his feelings and was loud and silly. The Bubby walk and strut was part id his DNA but he took it to the next level. He loved his cars and motors and his wife and kids. I named my first Boar after him because Bob who I call Bubby has a strut and silliness all his own.💗💗💗💗
