Here's the news:
I swung down to LoCal seeking fun and drinks, only to find Ben waiting instead. This really blew my mind, so we quickly tussled and in the ensuing struggle Ben collapsed on one knee. He then reached up, grabbed my neck and twisted me around and dislocated my 3rd Lumbar vertabrae. Just as he did, I landed on his other knee, (it began to swell as big as a grapefruit) picked up a bamboo slat and hit him over the head. Turns out, Lake Surfer was watching all of this. With all the dust in the air, Lake couldn't see too well. So he grabs a broken glass float off the bar (he likes the sound of breaking glass) and in so doing, slit his hand real good. We're all pals now, trading pain killers and muscle relaxants, and catching up on the latest innovations in walkers and skin stitching technology.

Rumor has it Makedamug and Booman are already talkin' about a line of Bamboo made medical supplies.

Get Well Soon Ben, so you can start kickin' twice as much butt.

He was this past Saturday when we stopped by his shop! He's lucky to have Mrs Boo and the little Boo's to open the shop up! It's like magic the way they convert the workshop into a retail shop!

Yes, he was using some bamboo as a cane to help get around! His knee was pretty swollen and he was in a great deal of pain. Lot's of Ibuprofen and Beer!!!!!

Get better quickly!!!!

Don't push it too far Ben. Iron man that you are, you can't risk messing things up for good. We need you in good shape to keep transforming spaces. Time to train Missus Boo on the table saw and finish nailer...
