31 Days of Pandas: Day 4

I know, I know, you’re thinking “WTF! Why are we only getting one panel a day of Inspector Panda? Sometimes we got two, or even THREE!!!”  Well, if you think about it, with only one episode of Inspector Panda per week when it’s not PanDaWriMo, you would only be getting two panels per week and now you are getting five! Just saying, OK?

Well, actually no one has said any such thing.  Nevermind. :o)

And now, on with today’s show! We don’t call it 31 Days of Pandas for nothing!

And just who is that sneaking a peak from under the curtain?

Meanwhile, yesterday was “Giving Tuesday” when everyone was supposed to reach deep into your wallets or your well of compassion for others, and give to the worthy cause of your choice. I am a little disappointed to say that fans of Panda Satire did not flock to Amazon and order piles of my books, for which I was going to make a donation to Pandas International. I’m not trying to make you feel guilty, because that doesn’t usually get the desired effect. (right mom?) But unlike much of life, you are going to get a second chance. For any order for the entire month of December for any of the Panda Chronicles Books or for Pandamorphosis, I will make a donation to Pandas International.  Just follow the handy link to my book page and click on through to Amazon or Createspace. They make great gifts!

Huzzah!

See you tomorrow!

    We love Nobody Expects the Panda Kindergarten. I am using Christmas to introduce the Panda Chronicles to the rest of my family. Of course, our family tradition is to read the books we give as gifts before wrapping them!

      Ooo! I love that you are giving your family the gift of pandas, and who doesn’t read a gift book before wrapping it up as a present? I must admit, that every time I see that someone has used the word “cuppycake” instead of cupcake, or says “huzzah! I get a little thrill to think that I have had an influence in the world.
      Thank you for supporting the Panda Chronicles and feeding my obsession for panda satire. The world is a better place with more laughter, not to mention fuzzy, round, black and white bears.

    I confess, Bob T: I did not say anything, but I wish there were more chapters every day. Anxious to know the end of history. Waiting for 31 days or 1 complete year ’bout Pinky ….. 🙂

      Oh, wouldn’t Pinky just love to have an entire year about herself? And what would the Meihem’s say? I feel your pain about the one panel a day issue. I could tell you that it takes several hours to write, work out the “who goes where” let alone the drawing and inking and scanning and formatting of each panel. And you might say, “so what? What’s more important? Getting your laundry done or actually making a living or entertaining us, your faithful fans?”
      All I can say is, when Inspector Panda gets his very own book, you will be able to read all the panels the way nature intended: continuously and in continuity. My best suggestion is that you forbid yourself to read the cartoons until Friday each week, and your delayed gratification will be rewarded by getting to read 5 panels in a row.
      I know. i am not any good at selayed gratification either.
      Keep the faith, and be the bear.

        I appreciate very much your drawings. Just trying to express my wishes (all ’bout Pinky), with my poor english. Hope I have not bothered you 😉

          Your English is far, far better than my Spanish. You have not bothered me, and I appreciate that you write to me. It gets lonely here in my studio and sometimes I wonder whether anyone is out there. This time of year brings waves of gratitude for all of you who take the time to comment on my most silly bears. Thank you.

            Thank you for adding cuppycake to your computer’s dictionary. I don’t know how to do that, but I have used it enough (as well as “Pandamorphosis”) that in some programs it has quit correcting me. I’m pretty sure it is the correct form of the word meaning “tiny, delectable cake, most favored by pandas” as defined in the Panda Kindergarten Dictionary.
            I love that I have readers in other countries. Do you live near enough to the Spanish pandas that you get to visit them occasionally? Give them my fond regards.

    One panel a day is both pleasure and pain! I’m desperate to know what happens but I don’t want it to end too quickly as I love the suspense 🙂
