So, back in the real world, Princess Pinky Bao Bao lives in China, and she has had a cub. We don’t know exactly why her cub is being raised by a foster mother, but she seems very well cared for and lives a happy cubby life. But in the world of The Panda Chronicles, all the pandas live at home with their parents… And Ping… And Frank and Mikey…
It’s getting a bit crowded in the panda house!
But that’s all to the good, for all the story possibilities that go along with a large cast of characters! (And that doesn’t include when Lun Lun sends all the girls up to visit their aunt and cousins!)
But the idea of Pinky having a cubby was too good to ignore, and so, we are having another one of those dream sequence thingies, which hopefully everyone will wake up from! As Mommee Mei says….
“Someday you’ll have a cubby just like you, Miss Pinky Bao Bao!!”
Where is this story headed? Well, to be honest, I really don’t know! I think you can be sure there will be some payback for Princess Pinky!
I’m fairly sure that the Panda Kindergarten must be responsible for the difficulties I’ve been having with the Pandashpere. I am now setting this up in what WP calls the Block Editor. Things appear and disappear randomly, as if a certain small panda was using her magical wand to foul things up.
But when I try to use the “classic editor” which has helped me lo these many years to bring you all the panda satire you need and want, it does other strange things like not publish scheduled posts or stop working while I’m in the middle of composing these wise pontifications…um…I mean incoherent blatherings.
Thank you to my talented web guru, I once again have the Classic Editor to set upon my posts. He put in a different plugin to allow me to have my luddite tendencies a bit longer. It does seem to be doing this strange thing once again. where I lose the connection temporarily, but it does seem to allow me to keep typing.
I don’t know. It’s all a mystery to me.
But Meanwhile, here is Pinky, once again, with all the answers!
Will Mei ever learn that it doesn’t pay to ask Pinky anything?
I seem to be having some technical difficulties, but hopefully, they will sort themselves out (and by themselves, I mean my very capable and accessible web guru, Nate Hoffelder who writes The Digital Reader and has a web guru business)
I wonder if some of my problems are due to my reluctance to give up the old editing interface that I’ve been using for the past 10 years, and move on to the new WordPress way of doing things….sigh…
Anyway….Pinky still has more questions to answer!
I am trying the newfangled editing thingie, and I guess I don’t totally hate it. Maybe I will even get used to it in a few weeks!
While it doesn’t have anything to do with pandas, as I sit at my computer, getting ready to write this post, an owl (maybe two) is (are?) hooting in the woods behind my house! Life in the 5 Acre Wood is never dull!
Meanwhile, Pinky has hatched yet another plan to cash in on another younger sibling’s adorable self. Will she get away with it? Who knows! The idea for this series came from Twidder friend Boo Boo Panda ( @BooBooPanduh on Twidder) who likes to make videos from the panda cam footage, and put them to music. She always comes up with great music/video combinations and they are so much fun to watch.
She wanted to make a workout video for Bikkie, masterminded and produced by Pinky, and asked if I could do a related ‘toon. The previous two ‘toon postings and today’s ‘toon are the result!. You can watch her video HERE! I hope you enjoy it!
And now…Pinky Presents….
See, Mommee! No tigers!
Hee Hee! Just like a Jane Fonda workout video, am I right??
One of the things I love about Pinky, is that she never lets those reflective moments get in the way of her naked ambition! I mean, she is a panda with a plan, and the plan is usually “what’s best for Pinky?” While this is not (as we have seen these last four years) a very admirable trait in humans, in a small, adorable panda…well, Pinky is a star and an icon!
Never deterred by adversity (like having THREE younger brothers- we include Ping) Pinky has picked up the pieces of her failed attempt to win the presidency and is moving on!
Since we might want something to distract us from both today’s vote in Georgia, AND the cluster**k that is about to occur in Congress tomorrow, I thought it would be a good time for Mommee Mei to deliver Pinky’s resolutions for the year!
And let’s not even get into the phone call Mittens made to Georgia’s Secretary of State…really, let’s not get into it!
Frank and Mikey are taking a quick pre-hibernation nap in their room as Pinky, Bubba, Ping, and Bikkie discuss the upcoming presentation of Pinky’s New Year’s resolutions!
Let’s see what’s happening, shall we?
It was either this or a double semi-tractor trailer!
