Oh Look, It's Santa……Bob!!


Santa Bob


If you follow the blog, you know my life has taken some pretty sharp turns here of late, and so, in keeping with the zaniness that is defining this holiday, I thought I would share Santa Bob with you!

Santa Bob is the mascot where Chris works, The Compounding Shop of Riverview. His real name is Bob Skurrel. He works in Marketing and Purchasing as a manager in addition to bringing cheer to the office. He sometimes comments on my blog as "Drugstore Bob."

In addition to Santa, Bob has been known to dress up as a pirate for our local holiday, Gasparilla, the Easter Bunny, a doctor (just for fun) and even as a turkey in honor of Thanksgiving - he takes his job of cheering the office very seriously.

Bob knows and uniquely understands the value of humor and lightness during times of stress. He learned this during his ordeal being a victim of vehicular homicide and his reincarnation as Bob Skurrel. He is known to often comment "You gotta laugh or you'll cry. Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry and you'll get ran over. No. Really. It happened to me. Let me tell you………………"
