    For the past half-century, Bobby Hudson and Marshall Long have worked side by side to expand the industrial climate in Shelby County.

    They have been together so long they may be losing their separate identities, what with having birthdays only one day apart, on Saturday and Sunday, joked Hudson.

    “Mine is on the [October] twenty-second; his is the twenty-third,” he said.

    Both will be 80 years old this weekend, although Marshall said he isn’t owning up to that.
