For the first summer in forever, old Bob has been freed from the constant onslaught of Austin travelers and now has a chance to become himself again. The grounds of the Robert Mueller airport are currently being allowed to revegetate as part of the redevelopment project, so Bob is currently letting his hair down and going for the shaggy, rugged look for a change. With such an opportunity to become wild and free, the little plants that had been carefully clipped and pruned all these years are quivering at their roots with excitement. A veritable floral coup is taking place, as sunflowers and crabgrass take on the task of covering up the "Welcome to Robert Mueller Municipal Airport" sign out front. While the revolution of the foliage won't last forever, the transformation that is taking place at Robert Mueller Airport is a celebration of new beginnings.
