31 Days of Pandas: The Penultimate Day (Day 30)


You have survived another year of 31 Days of Pandas. I might add, that we have also survived this terrible, very bad, no good year. I am reminded of all the other terrible, very bad, no good years I have survived in my life, and there have been a few of them. Despite these bad times, by the accidental circumstances of being born white, generally healthy, and to what at the time was a rather middle class family, I have survived those very bad years.

Some of those bad years lead to good things, these panda cartoons and all that followed from them, being one of those good things.

As we head into the new year, I want to express my gratitude once again, for all of you who read my ‘toons, buy my books, and buy my felty creations to share your homes. While the next year may be still hard, at least we won’t go to bed with thoughts of what the mad man in the People’s House is getting up to, while we sleep.

My heart aches for the lives lost this year: from the pandemic, from violence, from all the other reasons that bring unexpected death.

But we rejoice in our miracle baby panda, Mei Xiang’s final gift to us. Here’s to many happy hours of panda cam watching. May we soon be able to gather at the fence of Bikkie’s panda yard and celebrate his miraculous existence together and in person.

And with no further ado, here is the penultimate chapter of Beary Poppins!

I was afraid there would be yelling…so much yelling!

‘Toon in tomorrow for the final chapter of Beary Poppins!

    Bikkie is safe in Mommee’s arms! And, yes, lots of yelling is taking place! We all have lots of yelling to do concerning the past four years! But, Bikkie is safe! Mommee may put Bikkie on his own leash so he will not go anywhere without her.
    Thank you for this sweet story! Love how Bikkie has won so many concerned followers! Your ‘toons never fail to amaze me and to keep me uplifted.
    Mommee Mei has her hands, er, paws full with a very large household! Is Mikey going to stay and help Beary Poppins? Amazing that Pinky was not responsible! Is everybody grounded for life?
    Bikkie is safe!

      Everyone is pretty much grounded for the rest of the year!

      I’m glad you liked my story. I don’t think Mei has seen the last of Frank and Mikey.Don’t tell the keepers, okay?
