Their names are Bob Stine (AKA Hillbilly Bob), Dick Gross (AKA Grandpa Gross), and Thomas White — and when I grow up I want to be just like them. I met these fellas at the Grind Café, 7300 Washington Ave., on Thursday, April 16.
We talked about how Thomas plans to be married in June, how Dick has 30 grandchildren, and how Bob has a mini-flashlight bar clipped to his straw hat. That’s for when he has to fix the muffler on his three cars. Then, Bob and Thomas started singing. It totally made my day. So I thought I’d share this video of them. Unfortunately I didn’t get Dick singing on the video. But… there’s always next time.
