It’s only fitting that I share the following on the first day of April…
I first met Bob Buttafuso back in 1985 when he graciously volunteered his time to repair detectors at the FMDAC’s Treasure Weekend in Atlantic City. He repaired any brand, any model detector, no charge. I was impressed, grateful and hopeful that he would join our effort. Today? I go out of my way to avoid the guy. He’s keeps calling, crying in his beer, asking for money, wanting me to help him tie his shoes…..on and on.
Some of you might remember Bob as one of the stars in the TV series American Digger, where “Boom Baby” became the keyword and lead-in to every commercial. He has taken a lot of criticism and ribbing for doing the show but has no regrets. According to Bob he got to travel, see things he might otherwise not have seen and had a helluva lot of fun along the way!
For those of you who enjoy these Q&A posts Todd Hiltz has agreed to participate and if you have any particular questions you’d like to ask him let me know.
