Day 25 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

THIS IS IT! THE FINAL INSTALLMENT OF THE 12 DAYS OF CRISPMOSS!!!!

On the twelfth day of Crisp-Moss, My Panda cam Did See….
MX: no, Pinky, you may NOT have a Bamboo-tini!
I can’t hear you….
F-F-F-FI-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-VE Cuppycaaaaaaakes!
whew!
Everybody sing!

Well, here we are, heading into the final days of the year. We have passed the solstice and the sunlight will be creeping back, a few seconds longer each day. It has been my privilege and joy to share these ‘toons with you. I kind of hoped we would be out of the pandemic days (not to mention the political nightmare we still can’t wake from) but here we are.

I hope these panda ‘toons have helped you get through whatever form your year has taken, and I plan to continue writing and drawing these ‘toons and sharing them with you.

Stay strong, stay safe, be kind, and don’t take any crap from the forces of darkness!

I hope you are able to safely gather with the people (and bears) you care about the most this holiday season, whatever you do or don’t celebrate! Save me some pie!

Be the bear!

Day 24 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

I had a little inspiration on Twidder the other evening, and thought I’d share it with you hear, especially for you non- angry bird people!

‘Twas the night before Crispmoss
and all through the den,
the pandas were snoring 
again and again

The pandas were sleeping
all snug in their beds
while visions of cuppycakes
danced in their heads

when out in the passage
there came such a clatter
did Redd just show up?
with his antics and chatter?

So Larry arose 
and went out in the hall
He was very brave 
though he is very small.

For Larry, the mouse,
He had a large task
he advises the panda kids
If they would ask!

Of course there was Pinky
who knew everything,
all that she asked, what
would Santa bring?

“Clap louder! Clap louder”
she said in a huff!
“Whatever he brings,
well, it won’t be enough!”

“I made up my list-
there’s volume 1 here”
Larry just stared,
Bubba wiggled his ears.

“yoo can’t boss around Santa”
her brother said sweetly.
“hah!” said the princess
“there’s no one to keep me!”

Then Ping in his dog suit
and Mikey and Frank
ran into a wall
in a little toy tank.

“you’re going to wake mommee!”
Said Pinky, aghast.
“now clean up dis mess,
and do it real fast!”

The bears all looked sheepish,
this was such a fuss.
Then Mikey and Frank said,
“That wasn’t us.”

“What is that racket?”
Mommee said with a yell,
“You all will be grounded
if no one will tell”

“Who wrecked the tank
right into the wall?”
The small pandas scattered
and ran down the hall

“It sure wasn’t us!”
As they ran out of sight
Merry Crispmoss to all
and to all nighty night!

Merry Crispmoss!

Day 22 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Yes! It’s Day FIVE of everyone’s favorite song!

The 12 Days of Crispmoss!

FIIIIIVE cuppycakes!

HOW many more days are there?

I would like to point out that I am singing along as I post this. If I can do it, you can too. It will (probably) make you feel better!

You’ve probably noticed that I am covering 2 days of Crispmoss each day, which will go up until Christmas Day. After that, we will return to The Bears of the Baskervilles, running the entire story from the beginning during the week between Christmas and New Years! Huzzah! And yes, I finally came upon with an ending.

Till then…

Day 30: 31 Days of Pandas

Holy Moly! It’s day 30 of 31 Days of Pandas! We are almost at the end as the ball in Times Square makes its descent into the unknown. We have lost so many treasured, talented individuals this year, and now we have to add yet another to the list (as if Gene Wilder, Carrie Fisher, and Alan Rickman weren’t loss enough!) Yes, the father and grandfather of so many pandas, particularly the US pandas, Pan Pan passed away yesterday at the age of 31. He was quite a bear with the ladies and fathered 30 cubs and has over 130 descendants. He was really da bear! Farewell, Pan Pan. You will shine brightly in panda heaven.

But now, the conclusion of the Twelve Days of CrispMoss! Are you ready to sing?

HOW many more days are there?

whew!

Oh no! Not again!

F-F-F-FI-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-VE Cuppycaaaaaaakes!

Day 29: 31 Days of Pandas

I thought 2016 was going to be a great year, because at the beginning of the year, I started seeing news stories regarding the efforts of some Washington state businessmen and politicians having talks with China about bringing pandas to Washington state. Pandas HERE!!!! WOOZPPAH LIVES! So far, nothing has come of it, and we all know what a dumpster fire the year became.

But I am ever hopeful that You-Know-Who won’t completely screw up our relationship with China, which could instigate NOT getting pandas for Washington, and also losing the pandas we do have. You can see that I have a dog in this fight, right?

Anyway, here are some of my ‘toons from earlier this year, about WOOZPPAH! (WOOdlandpark ZooProjectPanda) (The “H” at the end is for a silent “Huzzah!” in case you were wondering where I got it.)

WOOZPPAH NOW!

I bet Seattle Pandas would vote for Bob!

If only we could have just a couple of pandas….

let me call you sweetheart…

And we are counting down the days…. Join us tomorrow for the rest of The Twelve days of CrispMoss. Here’s the link to the first part, so you can warm up your vocal chords.

Panda On
