It’s Fabulous Furry Fourth of July Friday

I love watching movies where things blow up (OK, now you know my dirty little secret) but I really wish that fireworks displays were limited to professionals that (mostly) know what they are doing, and hardly ever burn down stuff (like my house) that isn’t supposed to burn down.

Did I mention it’s hardly rained in the last month?  And Mehitabel doesn’t like them either.  At least Guy Fawkes Night is in November when everything is nice and soggy.  And now, The Panda Chronicles tribute to the Fourth of July!

Just saying.

uh. oh.

uh. oh.

Huzzah for Rumpy Dog!

Huzzah for Rumpy Dog!

Thanks to Rumpy T. Drummond for making a guest appearance at The Panda Chronicles!

And lest I forget, the answers to the art history quiz! #1 is, of course, John Singer Sargent’s Madame ‘P’, #2 is Edgar Degas, That pesky number 3 is Mary Cassatt (and yes, in the Boston Museum’s version of A Cup of Tea, there are two women, but there was not another panda to model available to Ms. Cassatt .) #4 is Claude Monet’s Panda with a Parasol, and of course, everyone’s favorite in #5, James Abbott McNeill Whistler’s Arrangement in Black, White, and Gray.

I will be contacting the winners forthwith.

Be the Bear,
Bob T. Panda

    Sigh! The one good thing about not having any cats right now is not having to sit in the bathroom or the hallway with them during the fireworks.

      That is one good thing (maybe also no one stands on your pillow at 5 AM and yells in your ear…Not that I know any cats that do that.) (HA)

    Awww my puppies were in my arms this year! Looks like Pinky and the Meihems were on their best behavior… or maybe they were at Dumpling’s birthday party instead.

      I think they were at Dumpling’s party. If they had been there, it would have been worse. Way worse.
      Hope your puppy has forgotten the trauma of the day.

What does your inner panda think?
