…that this is the next to the last recap of our story so far, The Case of the Picturesque Panda. But a little gratitude about a few other things is in order, so here goes:
I am thankful for my friends who have encouraged and supported me all these years, in all of my many creative pursuits, even when they thought I was being a little nutty (pandas). I am thankful that there are still pandas on the earth, and while I wish there was more undisturbed habitat for pandas to live wild and free, I am glad there are safe places for pandas to live among the people who love them, with all of their needs taken care of. I am thankful that so many people have found my cartoons and stories amusing or entertaining or life affirming and even that these bits of panda silliness help them survive the hard and sad events that are a part of everyone’s life.
I am grateful that I met my dear friend Jude Bulman, and that I was one of her many friends who loved her and depended on her to help them with all sorts of stuff. The world is a grayer place without you and I need pandas more than ever. Wherever you are, I hope there are pandas there too, and that they are making you laugh.
Personally, I’m planning on eating my weight in Dinner Rolls today.
And now, on with our story:
Be the Bear!
