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!
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
