  Robert Vegas Bob Swetz Steps WAY Back in Time Vegas Bob has been visiting Minnesota for 5 days now! Spending quality time with his father, older sister, nephews, cousins, uncles, aunts, in-laws and very close friends.I have always realized that when ever we visit and or spend time in areas we were born and raised, our minds race with memories of when we were very young and growing up! In fact look what Vegas Bob came across on the wall at his sister's home, an old photograph of Robert Swetz when he was about 1 year old with his sister that was 5.OMG ... Was Vegas Bob really this young? Wow I don't believe it ;o)
