While LLT was hard at work, or hardly working.....

The Boo Tribe did a lil' Cave Inn.......



The pic below...in the center...that split boulder was our target.
We only went into it about 2-300 feet. It goes another 2-300 feet. Next time fo' sure.








( you have to lower yourself into a 15' drop about 16" in diam. to get in.)


Anyone see Tiki Faces in Strange Places???


( too tired to find that other post....

Now off to the shop to check out the damage!!

Someone needs to get LLT a cell phone!!!!!

Ben- All the work at your shop was being done by a little elf who can't read signs!!!

Or is that your slave-labor you keep penned up in back of your shop? (Looks a little bit like Grog?)

That elf thing is too ugly to be GROG!

I think you took a picture of that big rat lurking around the warehouses....

And speaking of Rats......Thanks for breaking the rules while I was off helping a customer!

Now I'll never get that Assistant Manager Badge !

Anyways..yesterday was much mellower than Saturday...
had Kevin/KahunaKevin? kevin Kahuna?
a Brand new 2-month old TCer who popped in the morning for a visit and a chat!
Then Ojaitimo,this guy Luke(?) with some tiki tattoos,and TikiBong popped in for a spell...
Sunday was definitely a mellow day! So mellow i got lot's of painting done on the painting
that i originally started for mModern/worked on a little at the Chop/then dropped it til
this weekend.....IAnd yes Bill......i DID run out of ZipFizz! but the wifey just got me another case yesterday!
JUST IN TIME FOR HUKILAU!!!!!!! zzzzzzzzzzzzz-ZING!
Anyways,Boo and Mrs. Boo stopped by as i was closing up on Sunday and were pleased that the shop was still standing.....
GOOD NEWS!
Ben asked if i'd like to keep the art up on that wall until July 1st.....
So it'll be up there until july 1st if you missed it......
But forget that stupid wall-come for the ambiance!
Come on down just to gawk at the beautiful lamps hanging from the ceiling...
Or the hand-crafted bars/stools/and shelves....
Or the Books of photos of past installs and creations......
Come on down to witness the Creations of a man who LIVES his Art!
Whose Blood is Budweiser and has limbs of the strongest bamboo!
Anyways........
Thanks to all y'all who came down,and those of you who had never
experienced Ben's shop.....
Y'all helped make this weekend Unforgettable!

Yes!

LLT is "Our First Visiting Artist of the Month!"

Never before in the history of the Bamboo Ben Store have we done this.

LLT has a wall of goodies for the entire month of June.

Come one, come all, and check it out!!!

p.s.

That little ELF must be practicing for the next writers strike
coming up!!! I actually laced all the tools with a time- release poison that should be taking effect just about now. Good luck with that Hi-Jinx-Ers! There is no antidote!

What a cool place you have Ben and all the history. I love places that are like a museum like this. Beautiful work.

LLT, your art is incredible to see in person, photographs don't do them justice!
Thanks for the TC deal on the painting.

Cool to see everyone.
