To Bee or Not to Bee

Recently I’ve begun to invite friends of the Panda Chronicles to request specific encore presentations for my regular Sunday offering. This week, by request, I’m highlighting Bee the Bear!

I had to think for a minute about how Bee (the Bear) came into bee-ing! It all came rushing back, when I remembered that when I did my 2nd Kickstarter campaign to publish my first collection of ‘toons in printed form, a friendly bee-keeper here on Whidbey offered some local honey as an extra incentive to contribute to my campaign.

Of course I had to design a label!

Bee, the Bear; my original drawing.

Later I revised her a little bit:

Beeeeeeeee!

and also…

cheerful
Bee-lieve!

When Mr. Wu came along, Bee (the Bear) appeared in many of Mr. Wu’s adventures, including the story when he ran off with the panda kindergarten and joined the circus, The Wizard of Wu, and It’s a Wunderful Life!

Okay, now it’s getting exciting! Scary parts dead ahead!

What part of “you don’t exist” didn’t you get? Ha ha! I love that line!

And while we’re on the subject, (what subject was that?) It’s almost birthday month for Mr. Wu, and the Meihem twins, so the Sundays of July will be filled with encore presentations with Mr. Wu and the Meihems! (Pinky Junior shares [NOT DAT WORDS!!!!] her birthday [July 29th] with The Wu Self!) The wizard of Wu always has an encore presentation in October and it’s a Wonderful Life, during the Christmas holiday season. I’ll reprise Mr. Wu’s entire circus adventure during his birthday month!

August, of course, will be full of the House of the Xiang-Tian clan! Definitely something to look forward to!

I hope you enjoyed this visit with Bee (the Bear)!

Be(e) the Bear!

31 Days of Pandas: Day It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Crispmoss

Yes it is Day 25 of 31 Days of Pandas, otherwise known as Crispmoss among the panda set. I would like to point out that it is 46 degrees inside my house, as the electric power has not yet returned. Because of my extreme dedication, I am at the library, preparing this and the next few days of 31 Days of Pandas posts so not a single post is late.

Am I wonderful, or what????

For those who said “Or what,” I am going to tell Pinky you said that and she will do something to you I’m sure. Maybe give you a medal, maybe poof you, I don’t know. Just for that, I am going to torture you with extending Pinky in Wonderland for one more day and instead, bring you this encore presentation of everyone’s favorite holiday classic…

Have yourself a pandy little Christmas….

It’s a Wonderful Life, starring non other than The Wu Self! Enjoy!

Day 21: 31 Days of Pandas

I know I am way too MEAN, to have two stories with scary bits and a whole lot of suspense going on at the same time. Well, all I can say to that is…

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Ahem….

But! As promised, today, I bring you all the final chapters of It’s a WUnderful Life, so then you’ll only have ONE story to be worried and apprehensive about. Well, one panda story and the debacle in DC, where the GOP has just decided to take most of your money, your healthcare, and anything that is happy and give it to very wealthy people. Unless you are a very wealthy person yourself and then will you take me for a ride on your private airplane? Ahem.

But enough about the fall of Democracy and the desecration of the Constitution… Here’s the next episodes of It’s a WUnderful Life!!!

And now you know why Wu is such a well behaved, responsible panda, helpful and loving to all his little cousins! Unlike another panda we could name…

Speaking of Pinky, book editing and formatting is well underway for the next exciting Panda Chronicles Book release! I hope to have everything done by the end of the year, and then the uploading and approval process starts, so hopefully, I will have it ready by the beginning of February. Stay tuned for more news on The Pinky Defense: Book 8 of the Panda Chronicles!

I will also have a special ‘toon for Christmas Day, so don’t forget to check back here. I will have a very special Christmas carol for you to share with your family and friends! Huzzah!

Panda on as if your life depended on it!

Day 19: 31 Days of Pandas

A quick update

Several people contacted me today because they know I live in Western Washington. I was no where near the terrible accident that happened on the Seattle-Portland Amtrak route. (I’m not ducking blame, just wanted you to know that I am safely at home.) It must have been a horrifyingly scary event. The pictures send major chills up my spine. I know many people who travel the stretch of I-5 daily, as well as people (myself included) who regularly take the train from Seattle to Portland. My thoughts are with the people who were so terribly injured and frightened by this accident. The pictures are chilling.

Meanwhile, Mr. Wu learns what life would be like if there were no more baby pandas…

Day 18: 31 days of Pandas

WE are tumbling head over paws towards the end of the year, the shortest day of the year, and Christmas too! The pandas have been working on a special Christmas Carol that they are eager to share with you. I think they will have rehearsed enough by Christmas. Hee Hee.

But now, it’s time to begin that most beloved of holiday classics…
