Ben Bishop Celebrates 80th Birthday
Full Story
On the evening of August 5th we celebrated Ben Bishop's 80th birthday with cake and ice cream for everyone. Ben is the very capable evening cashier at Chaf-In. He is known as the tall older man at Chaf-In and is always cleaning and putting things back into their proper places.

Even though Ben looks like a retired preacher, he has never been one. He grew up in a family that own a restaurant or two and he has even owned one in Cleburne several years ago himself. He is best known in the business world as the owner of GoodTime Vans, a conversion van company he started in Arlington many years ago and eventually moved to Grandview.

He works at Chaf-In assisting in many ways just to get out and keep busy. He is faithful to eat his veggies everyday and that is his claim to a long and healthy life. If you watch closely, he does it some junk occassionally, but still he is able to maintain his 200 pounds at 6 foot 4 inches.

Drop by and get to know he quite a character.
