Next Monday is 8/27? Looks like they're OK with it.
Broken ankles are no fun :(

Maybe you can post a photo of Bamboo on the cast!

Get well soon but please don't forget to mail the panda pretty soon.

CarrotCup requested my address.

If he gets here on Tuesday, he can go racing with me.

A cast...? D: I think military medical is too cheap to do that. It's not that bad anyway, just a fracture, so they gave me crutches. Too bad I don't have a tiny set for Bamboo! That would be SO cute! <3

Okay, here's a couple more pics. I'mma try to see if someone will take him hiking with them tomorrow morning (we'll see how that goes).


Bamboo visits the cactus garden at Balboa. We didn't go into museums because they're boring.



Bamboo decides we should go to Ocean Beach because he wants his first piercing!


I got him all suited up, lookin' snazzy with his bomb new ear piercing. ;D He's also sporting a new pin, courtesy of the staff at Apogee.

Bamboo is en route! I'll send the tracking # to Garm when I get home. I left it in my car and I'm lazy, aha.

But the post office said he wouldn't get there until Wednesday or Thursday. Knew I should have taken the extra time to drive to FedEx. D:

Bamboo was sorry he missed the intake manifold install, so I showed him pictures.



Bamboo meets our office parakeets. Notice that the parakeets are as far from Bamboo as possible. He never thought of himself as intimidating before.



Bamboo thinks these 175's are going to be a STRETCH on 15x8's -- but that's the point, Bamboo!



Bamboo approves of the 2012 Yaris, especially this all-black beauty (in for some upgrades today)



"But where are YOU going to sit when we go racing, Garm?"



Bamboo is ALL about 1NZ motors.



Bamboo REALLY likes the Hello Kitty exhaust tip. A little too much, really.



Bamboo + Lucky Cat



ok, more later....

Bamboo liked the ride home from the shop, more pics on that later.

I gave him a tour of my back yard... first, my grapefruit tree:



He decided to meditate on the meaning of being a bear:



But then we decided to start partying! After all, Bamboo's in town!

Beer? No beer! Let's do some Pinot Grigio!

Nice touch, showing him some fine California wine (ooops. Make that Italian wine! ;) for a change ;)

Yeah, I think he got a little too close to that HK tip ! ;) Are you putting that on the new 2012 Black Yaris?!

Keep 'm coming !

He might be intimidating with that new piercing.

Bamboo got to hang out at my shop today. The Subaru 360 is his favorite car (probably because his feet almost reach the pedals). His friend Domo kept him company while I fixed the original AM radio.

I don't know. Bamboo is always welcome in San Francisco. Haven't seen him in close to a year now, maybe longer?

Problem is, he may not want to leave ...

*cough* *cough*

I think I am. I have a Concours event on October 7th that I am sure you all would love to see Bamboo pictures with rare cars.

Guess who arrived in the mail today? Excited to have Bamboo visit. His return is in time to attend the Louisville Concours d'Elegance at Churchill Downs. Expect to see Bamboo checking out a lot of rare and beautiful cars as well as possibly making a tv appearance this week.


All comfy and cozy in the package


Sitting up and ready to stretch


Up and ready to start taking in the sights

^ Nice. Those are corn-based peanuts by the way, no styrofoam! They melt in water, and Bamboo probably munched a few on the way.

Bamboo is helping with some parts install on the Aluminum Triumph TR-2 race car


Trying to see if he could drive the Porsche 908/3


He can't reach the pedals though


How about if I drive and he keeps an eye on the road?


A size reference for the rear wheels


Next he checked out the Class winner and 7th place overall from the 75 and 76 24 Hours of Daytona
