Time to get ready for…

The Year of the Banky Pig! Huzzah! Yes, the Lunar New Year, known also as Chinese New Year is coming soon. How soon? I don’t know, Auntie Lucilla…how soon is it? And since in the Chinese Astrology, each year is signified by an animal, changed  on a twelve year cycle. This year is the Year of the Pig. (Bubba: dat’s BANKY PIG!!!!!!)

For some reason, there is no year of the Panda. 

To whom do we file a complaint about this obvious error?

Look out Bubba! Pinky is trying to get her paws on Banky Pig!

Panda On!

One Last Day to Celebrate Pinky and Bubba!

I can hardly believe that birthday week for our most favorite bears is almost over. Rumor has it that Pinky is not having a party this year, because she might, um…have a cuppycake in da oven. Won’t that be interesting? because I have chosen (yes, I do get to choose this) to kind of suspend my pandas in time, on a sliding scale, Having Pinky suddenly become a mum, might be too much for my tortured brain.

Meanwhile, my bout of flu last week seems to be gone, just in time for smoke to fill our skies, thanks to wildfires in Washington, Oregon and Canada. Oh, and there is the little matter of the revelations by 45’s personal (former) attorney, not to mention the conviction of his former campaign manager. Are we watching the news or a rerun of The Sopranos? Really, it’s kind of hard to tell.

So let’s have a few laughs and a cuppycake (or three) with Pinky and Bubba!

Is this any way to treat our Nation’s most adorable icon?

The forces of Meihem are only barely in check.

Just a reminder: repeat after me: this is fiction.

What could be better than a bear and her mouse?

The Spirit of Halloweens yet to come is not a spirit to be messed with, right?

Could this be Pinky’s future office? Pinky: may i remind you, you should have voted for me!

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

And of course, one of my all time favorites…

See? I told you it was broken!

Be careful Ping Ping! The Panda House might not be…um…completely safe.

Ha ha! Oh that Pinky!

More Celebrations of Pinky! (and Bubba!!!!!)

I am a bit under the weather here, but today I was able to drag my sorry, fuzzy butt out of bed and prepare today’s Celebration of Pinky! I’m sure that a good dose of Pinky will be just the medicine I need, what with outrage and laughter being known as the best medicine. Who said anything about outrage? Well, have you listened to the news today?

Nuff said about THAT!!!! Let’s see what the Pinky File has for us today!

Princess Pinky helps with new years resolutions

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

Pandas are standing by to take your calls!

And it was ever thus….

Bubba’s first feature role!

He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!

Feed me, Mama!

Really, Pinky….It’s not nice to tease your little brother.

Happy 100th day Birthday! More frosting!

What the well dressed panda cub is wearing this season!

Be sure to tune in next week for the continuation of Pinky in Wonderland and more ‘toons about Pinky and Bubba!

Panda On!

It’s Pinky’s (AND Bubba’s) Birthday Season

Yes, we are in the fogs of August, here in the other Washington, and you know what that means! It’s Pinky’s (and Bubba’s) birthday month, so we will be featuring ‘toons about Pinky and  Bubba all month long!


But first, a poem, by Pinky, to celebrate the occasion:

Thirty days, has September
Why dis is, i can’t remember.
august is da monf of ME
its days number thirty three.

boo boo says dis isn’t true
but what does his truth have to do
wif princess pandas such as me,
cause i need at least thirty three

days to celebrate my birth,
because i know what i am  worth.
two more days a monf dan dem,
da monf dat brought us such meihem!

oh, an’ also cuzzin wu
a minor monf, july, it’s true.
so hurry up an’ buy me presents
an’ dose cards dat you has sent us.

boo boo says it’s his monf too,
but i am sure dis can’t be true.
so bake a cake so we can party
cause august is da monf of pinky!

by pinky panda, a really good pome, dat mostly rhymes.

Pinky is VERY powerful. Be afraid, be very afraid, Mr Wu.

Mr Wu tries to take charge

Uh oh. All is not well in Pandyland!

See ya Sunday, for the return of Pinky In Wonderland!!!!

Pinky in Wonderland Episode 9

After today’s episode, we are going to take a little break from our story (don’t worry! it will be back!) as I have some very impatient pandas who are saying, “but what about US??? Aren’t WEE as important as Pinky?”

I value my life too much to answer that question.

But on with the show. I think we all need to take a deep breath and process what revelations were revealed this week, check our voter registration, and remember what’s important.

Pinky. Pinky is important.

What could be behind that door? Stay tuned, panda fans!

In addition to the fall of western civilization as we have known it, I received news that a dear friend has passed away this week. I met her almost 20 years ago, not long after I started spending time with my friend Mr. Badger.  I hate that this gentle soul is no longer on this earth to remind me of what is important. She’d started having trouble keeping her balance, and soon her mind started to wander off to places we could not follow. I don’t know what comes after death, but I will continue to hope it is something like this:


As you know, pandas are big fans of Shakespeare.

Episode 7: Pinky in Wonderland

While He Who Must Not Be Named continues to burn the country down, and pardons others who do so, we must not lose sight of the sight of the fact that pandas are very calming and maybe we should all go lie down and watch some panda videos…mebbee have some cuppycakes…oh yeah and VOTE and CALL YOUR SENATORS (ESPECIALLY THOSE WITH ‘R’ SENATORS) and tell them not to set back the country 50 years because that would just stink.

So let’s just give reality a rest, shall we? And tune in to the next episode of Pinky in Wonderland!!!

It would be better with a little salt and balsamic vinegar, but not bad!

And let’s all wave BuhBye to Scotty (sticky fingers) Pruitt. Unfortunately the new guy is a former coal industry lobbyist, Ah…to live in Wonderland with Pinky…that would be much better.

Be the Bear!

Episode 6: Pinky in Wonderland

There is way too much going on in the world right now, so sit back, pop open a BooBeer and enjoy…hopefully in air conditioned splendor!

Pinky in Wonderland!!!!

Well dis is a pickle an’ a half!

Be the bear!

Episode 5: Pinky in Wonderland

What’s with all that bombing going on out there?

I hope everyone is having a lovely 4th of July holiday, for those who celebrate (and for those of you who have a day off from your various labors. There are no paid holidays among the self employed, you know!) The right wing propaganda media has claimed that today is the beginning of the second Civil War. Would that be the War on Civility, or did they have something else in mind?

I am endlessly entertained and cheered by the Writers of Twitter, who are whooping things up with their #secondcivilwarletter parodies over on Twidder. If you are a partaker in all things tweeting, I highly recommend getting yourself over to read the many #secondcivilwarletter offerings and maybe take a crack at writing your own! It’s really fun.

Creativity lives! And so does Pinky…on with our story!

Drink mee!

Pinky in Wonderland Episode 4

Pinky makes the spontunerous decision to follow Mr. Bun down the rabbit hole! What is waiting for her there? Was this smart? Was this prudent? What will happen?

And, if you are just tuning in, you can start with episode 1 here.

Well, if you’d post the darn ‘toon, we’d all know, wouldn’t we???

Sometimes being spontunerous can get you in over your head, Pinky!

And speaking of spontunerous, I thought that this comment posted by Jeannie on last Friday’s post had so much good information about voting, that it bears (bears! Get it?) repeating, in case you didn’t see Friday’s comments!

If you’re not a voter, make the spontunerous (that’s a Pinky word) decision to get registered and get ready for the November 2018 midterm elections! Pew Research says, “since 1842 the President’s party has lost seats in 40 of 43 midterms — the exceptions being 1934, 1998 and 2002.” Midterms are a great for “expressing dissatisfaction with the president’s performance or ensuring that his party doesn’t control all the levers of government.”

470 seats in the U.S. Congress (35 Senate seats and all 435 House seats) are up for election on November 6, 2018. You know your vote can make an impact!,_2018

Voting can be overwhelming — so many boxes to check! Check out helpful voter tools like:,,,, to make voting easier for yourself. Panda on!

And a big thanks to all who went out and marched yesterday to show your support for #FamiliesBelongTogether! I attended a small but sincere gathering in Coupeville WA, of just a couple hundred people, but I saw pictures from Seattle, DC, and many of the other large marches and they were awe inspiring! Dis. Will. Not. Stand!!!!!

we shall overcome Panda

PS: It’s Canada Day today! Happy Panada Day to our neighbors from the north! get those guest rooms ready in case…um…any of your panda satirist friends have to make a speedy retreat!

Oh Panada, Oh Panada, how tasty are your maple leaves….

Oh, Canada
Our country’s in a state,
We don’t know how we
ever got to here,
our leader spewing hate.

Oh, Canada
We feel like such a fool.
Would it be okay,
for a little while
we come swim in your pool?

Oh Canada
Your PM is so grand.
Warmly welcoming
The world’s refugees,
a panda in each hand!



Pinky in Wonderland 3

I hardly know what to say. We seem to be descending into a place I never thought we’d go as a country. I plan to head out to our nearest march on Saturday to protest the latest crimes against human (and panda) rights.

And speaking of descending….

Here’s our next episode of Pinky In Wonderland!

Was that Mr. Bun????

Will Pinky follow Mr. Bun? And where did Mr. Bun go? Tune in Sunday for episode 4 of Pinky in Wonderland!

I know it seems like things are especially bleak, and TBH, they are. But all is not lost, as long as we can still vote. I hope you all are checking your registration to make sure it’s current, calling your representatives, and getting out and voting. While the separation of refugee families is dire, the R’s are going to town with trying to take away health care and women’s reproductive rights. The occupant of the WH has successfully banned Muslims (from countries without a tRump hotel or other business interests), all the while reportedly stuffing his pockets and selling the presidency as his latest brand. I hope to see you at one of the marches and then at the voting booth in November.

Pandas RESIST!!!

And a reminder: Don’t be the person who doesn’t speak out against injustice because they haven’t come for you yet.
