The 50th Pandaversary celebration of all things PANDA would hardly be complete without an examination of every thought that has ever passed through the magnificent brain of the most important panda that ever resided at the Smifsonian National Zoo!
Oh sure, you might think Ling Ling and Hsing Hsing were those most important pandas, since they were the first to reside in Washington DC. Or maybe you might think that the well loved Tai Shan (aka #1 son), being the miracle cubby who arrived in 2005, is that most important panda.
But only 1 panda was VOTED an icon in a national campaign by the Smifsonian! Guess who!!!!!
A tip of the tiara to Pinky’s twidder typer for this idea!
Soon to be available on my Redbubble shop as a T-shirt and some other things!
There is so much going on, most of which I really don’t even want to think about: the ongoing surge in coronavirus, brought on, at least in part by the unwillingness of a sizable portion of the population that could get vaccinated, but won’t. The cancer death of another acquaintance, the continuing (and escalating) dangerous lies about the election and subsequent attempted coup.
And MAYBE I did not acknowledge a certain little panda princess’s birthday on the actual day…
Meanwhile, it is now birthday month for the trio from DC, the offspring of the Xiang Tian Clan, so I guess all of the Sunday roundups for the entire month will have to be about them!
Gee…I wonder if I have any ‘toons about Pinky...#ClapLouder
And, of course, one of my personal favorites…
Maybe by the time this hits the cyber waves, Huan Huan will have gifted us with a pair of cubby siblings to BeBe Maurice! If not, this will give you some reading material while you wait!
What does this mean for the Panda Chronicles! Has PPJ (Princess Pinky Junior) arrived out of an alternative future to live with all the pandas at the Panda House? And now Beary Poppins has gone off on vacation? Is Mei doomed to a never emptying nest?
It’s Day 5 and Pinky is back!!!! Unfortunately for her, so are the Meihems, and they made a list, checked it twice, and brought it along so they could be sure that they didn’t forget any of Pinky’s crimes! And there are a lot of them!
I’m making a list, and it’s really big…
Not even Pinky is above the law. And if SHE isn’t, then Mittens sure as heck isn’t either!
Be the Bear!
Hand over that Cuppycake!

Who would have guessed, on that day back in 2013 that a very (very!) small panda would capture the imagination and delight of not only this nation but the entire world? She has truly taken on a life of her own, both the actual Bao Bao, but also her ‘toon bearsonification, Princess Pinky.
What do you say to a celebration of all things Pinky? Pinky: the early months
Bubba: what about all fings mee?
Pinky: be quiet, boo boo!
And just how did the panda kindergarten get her address?
Pinky gets a present!
Pinky tests her powers….
Oh Princess Pinky, mom has a trick or two up her paw, I think…
