No. 16: Bob the builder

This is Bob Rehm. He's 60 in this photo, but 61 as of Wednesday. And he gets a building implosion right next door to the building he is helping to erect next door for the big 6-1. Rehm has been in construction all of his life, working the steel side for the last 32 years, 16 of which have been in Clearwater, Fla. The talk of the town was Criss Angel's upcoming death-defying escape. Rehm said this isn't something smart to have your kids watch, as his son Aaron, after seeing Spiderman in theaters, attempted to swing from one roof top down into another neighbors building. The line that he was using snapped, and he fell to the grass. Go, go spidey-ooooh!

Rehm is a very down-to-earth man who knows a lot of little nuances in life. And his face and hands alone tell his story.
