…In Which Ping Ping Comes to Live at the Panda House

Everyone who is a fan of Winnie the Pooh stand up and wave your hands in the air. Huzzah! Remember when Kanga and Roo, and then Tigger first came to live in the enchanted forest? “Why has he come, and when is he leaving?” were questions that were bandied about by Certain Intolerant Inhabitants of the forest. (italics courtesy of A A Milne) It’s not all that different at the panda house and I’m pretty sure you might have a very good idea who might feel that way.

Exactly.

Let’s look in at the Panda House to see who has arrived now…

Be careful Ping Ping! The Panda House might not be…um…completely safe.

I’m still working on adding all my trip notes and pictures to the site, but re-entry to the real world is taking longer, with more moving parts than I had planned for.  Regardless, I hope to get some more posts and pictures posted on the Pandatastic Voyage page this week! Stay tuned!

I also used my entire back log of stored ‘toons while I was in China, so I am slowly starting to do an extra ‘toon here and there so that I am NEBBER late with your weekly ‘toons, because I’m just that kind of bear!

We’ll have more from Ping Ping later this week, as well as the exciting conclusion of A Halloween Carol, starring the junior pandas of the Panda Chronicles! Stay tuned!

Panda On!

      I have to admit, I left a little pice of my heart with Ping Ping at Gengda panda base, so if I couldn’t bring him in real life, I decided to bring him here! Pretty neat trick, if I do say so myself.

      He really had fun when the Toronto Twinkies came to visit, but they live so far away, and frankly, their mother fears that the powers that be (He Who Shall Not Be Named) might discriminate against them, since they are both Canadian and Chinese.

      It only seemed fair! Bubba (unlike some other pandas we could name) always plays well with others. I thought he needed a playmate.

    My inner panda does not receive the link to enable reply to comments, ya know, that thing in wordpress. He’s cute. If they don’t want him I’ll take him

      I just looked in the comment settings, and it appears that comments can be commented on, but I really don’t know how that works or why you’re not able to do that. Like many technological things, I just hop on one foot and turn in a counterclockwise circle three times and hope that every thing works as it should.

      But I think Ping Ping will have a good home at the panda house. Bubba will protect him. heh.

    Bubba finally gets to be a “big brother” to a cubby!! Ping Ping and Bubba will be great friends and have lots of fun together, I just know it. Loved General Bun’s welcome greeting!

      General Bun is a good sort of fellow. I was hoping Bubba would get to be a big brother in real life, but alas, it is not to be. Hopefully this will distract everyone from that sadness. I’m doing my best to distract us from…um…other stuff too.

What does your inner panda think?
