One More 50th Pandaversary Post!

The Month of Pandas is coming to an end…

Who am I trying to kid? It will ALWAYS be the month of Pandas!!!

And who better to celebrate this 50th pandaversary at the national Zoo than the ENTIRE panda family in residence!?

Well, who didn’t think that Pinky’s family would track her down?

Okay, Okay… I guess there are a couple OTHER pandas living at the DC Panda House!

I didn’t THINK that Pinky knew the “share” word.

I think Biscuit and Beary Poppins are forming a real bond!

The Moods of Pinky

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!

The 2022 Olympics in Beijing are going to be wrapping up later this week, but the Pand-O-Lympics have just begun!

Let’s see how Pinky is doing being the team coach and manager!

Can you say “Biscuit on a Bobsled???”

And how about Mommee Mei’s snow boots?

I was Powerless to Resist

I tried to ignore those enigmatic tweets, full of little black, yellow, and green boxes in up to 6 rows of 5. On further investigation, I was still clueless, because, well, Wordle has no clues!

Eventually I figured it out and now I am hooked. Lucky for me, they only let you play one game per day, and everyone gets the same word. The new days’ word drops right at midnight in your time zone. Out of 7 games so far, I have figured out all 7. My best is figuring it out in 3 rows, which I have done 3 times!

I’m not sure how Pinky’s game will work out. I think Mommee Mei might protest the paywall…

Play on!

It’s a New Year and time for…

Pinky’s resolutions!

Funny thing.. I had already done the new ‘toon and then set up Sunday’s encore presentations of previous presentations of Pinky’s resolutions. I guess there was a reason this year’s ‘toon almost wrote itself…

2022 resolutions:

It’s deJa vu all over again!

For comparison, here is the 2021 version!

It was either this or a double semi-tractor trailer!

Maybe Mommee uploaded this year’s resolutions to last year’s iPand mini!

Keeping my pseudo thumbs crossed that 2022 is a much better year for all of us!

It’s that time of year again!

Time for the presentation of resolutions to Princess Pinky!

Every year, Mommee Mei shares a list of resolutions for Pinky (Bubba only gets one: chew your food). While we wait for this year’s list, let’s look back on the resolutions she has “shared” with Pinky in years past!

But first, Pinky “helps” the panda kindergarten with their resolutions!

You say you want a resolution, well, you know, it is hard to change a bear….

Once again proving the intransigence of Pinky, and the omnipotence of Mommy Mei

Pinky: “rules are for other pandas.”
Bubba: my resolution was just to chew my food more, an’ mebbee not eat so much frosting. Ping: ping!
You would think Pinky would already have improved her behavior by now…
It was either this or a double semi-tractor trailer!

How will Mommee deliver Pinky’s resolutions this year? ‘Toon in on Tuesday to find out!
