Rachael Ray, celebrity chef, guru and overall dynamo,  has been the object of Bob’s desire for over a decade.  What blossomed in 2006 continued on.


Things changed in mid 2007.  My personal life took a turn.  Well… more like an explosion.

My personal problems spilled over into the strip.  I just wanted to hide.  So that’s what happened in the strip. I just went away.  Didn’t see any way out of my situation.  Bob enlisted the help of his love.  He wasn’t calling for himself, he was calling for his friend.

Make no mistake, the love was still there.  Oh yes.  I eventually unhid myself and left my old life behind.  Left it all. Everything except Bob and Rachael.  Bob’s love remained unrequited.

2008 and changes…

Bob and Frank moved on, as one tends to do.  We set ourselves up temporarily at my grandmother’s house while things were sorted out. I found love again with Lezley, but Bob? Well, Bob sill had his one-sided thing going on.

Eventually, we moved into our own house and I started grad school.  Lez and Lauren were kind enough to check in on Bob (and Rachael) while I was in Vermont…Despite my warnings, things nearly got out of hand.  Never get between a squirrel and a 30 minute meal.
