Robert Vegas Bob Swetz steps back in time
Well Vegas Bob will be headed to Minnesota early this afternoon and it's been 5-6 years since I have gone back.
Being born and raised in Minnesota every time I go back there I get flashbacks of when I was very young.

Now some of you might think with the name "Vegas Bob" that I must have been born and raised in Las Vegas Nevada.
But actually Vegas Bob was born in the state of Minnesota.
And at the age of 17 years old Vegas Bob traveled to Portland Oregon and lived there for 5 years.

And after living in Portland Oregon for 5 years Vegas Bob went back to live in Minnesota for several years.
Then in the mid 1980's Vegas Bob lived and worked in downtown San Francisco California building glazing windows in a shy scrapper.
Then Vegas Bob lived and worked in Santa Barbara California working in the glass industry.
Then back to Minnesota for several years.
It wasn't until the year 2000 that Robert Swetz moved to Las Vegas Nevada where the rest became history for Vegas Bob.
And it wasn't until around 2008 that members of the ActiveRain gave Robert Swetz the nickname ... VEGAS BOB
