Good pics, Alex and nice to see you again as well. No pics of Babalu because he's in London. I'm sure your zoom isn't that good, or you'd be a threat national security.

It was a very strange Chop. I didn't actually end up carving. I brought tools and wood and then ended up going to the swap meet with Buzzy and Zaya. I had many lovely conversations, watched the homeless guy emcee and play Hendrix on his Sponge Bob guitar, and took one picture...

Yeah, that was a weird chop. I didn't carve either, we carved enough this year and it just seemed like time to kick back and Ree Lax.

Billy, however, never slowed down for a minute and seemed to be all over that show, everywhere at once.

That's not a real person. Billy put a cutout up there for target practice. Works great.

But why'd he make it look like Bamboo Ben????

Cam, that WAS Bamboo Ben, not a cutout. He drove all the way down to party with us, but that old fucker playing really bad crap in front of TikiLand scared him away. If you enlarge the picture, he's up there flipping a shakra with one hand, and a bird with the other.

I think it's our turn to go visit Ben.......and bring lots of Budweiser!!

Dang!! Looks like I missed yet another "get down" Chop due to a demanding boss....

Bowana - you lookin down and dangerous big fella.

Great to see the Birdman's kid (aka: Bird boy) busting out the chisels...mucho potential there!

Hey, I say we take the Reverend up on his invite and party down up in HB one of these months soon. We could all take over the top floor of a cheap hotel somewhere close to him and "roll on though the night". We'll bring ya a log Ben...Bandaids and plenty-o-beer.

pretty cool event,
I was just bummed that alot of the cars started leaving at 2 pm.
I barely got to see some of them,
and then the 2 hour Delay for Deadbolt.
I guess the drummer got dealyed coming back from TJ.
thats the problem smuggling drugs in your ass across the border, sometimes they want to look for it.

That's what happens when I win a raffle and get a free hoodie. It makes me really happy, and I do the Robot Dance.

Thanks everybody for a great time (even though I didn't carve at this one. Every Robot needs a little down time).

Thanks Buzzy and Cobain for working the deal for us.
