There Were Never Such Devoted Sisters!

I love it when Mei Xiang and her southern belle sister Lun Lun get on the phone together!

Could there be movement from Pandalanta to the DC Panda House? We shall see!

Six and Sebben are always ready to ride!

Summer is coming and the living is easy!

In Honor of Six and Sebben!

It was Six and Sebben’s birthday this week! Hard to believe they turned FOUR!!! As is traditional at The Panda Chronicles, I like to feature the birthday bears on a Sunday Funday dive into the archives. Is it my fault if Pinky took three weeks to celebrate her birthday? She *might* make an appearance here too!

I’m working on some new felties which I really swear I will get photographed and up on the Buy Stuff with Pandas page…really soon! I went for a last visit to my felty supplier, Abundant Earth Fiber. The coronavirus restrictions meant they had to be closed for more than 4 months. Although they do have a vibrant online store, as a new member of the fiber arts community, their store was like a trip to Wonderland. There were always someone there, either knitting or spinning or just hanging out and ready to talk about wool. They recently made the difficult decision to close their retail space.

The mill lives on and they’ve made arrangements with another local store to carry some of their best selling yarns and fibers, and also to serve as a pick up location for online orders for us locals. As part of their closing, they had a sale on everything in the shop, so I am well stocked up on fiber for now. They are currently offering free shipping on everything ordered online for US addresses, so if you are a knitter, (or felter!) and want to order some stunningly beautiful yarn, I hope you’ll check them out. I don’t get anything for promoting them (other than their continued existence). Their philosophy of small, high quality batch yarn and fibers really resonates with me.

But enough about the real world! Let’s take a look back in the archives for the Life and Times of Six and Sebben!

Pinky’s previous minions are all grown up now, and know better than to listen to her, but…

Pinky and her new minions get down to serious business

I don’t think this crew of minions is going to be quite as devoted as her last ones.

I just thought we all needed a good laugh, so….

Did I just see what I thought I saw?

The Great Race Grand Finale!!!

The  week of torturing you till the winner of the race was revealed is finally OVER! (Not to mention for those of you who were wondering what Six poured onto the track!)

HUZZAH!

There is news from the DC Panda House, but I’ll save it till after today’s ‘toon. If I make you wait any longer, you’ll show up at my house with burning pitchforks!

As they race toward the finish line…

That’s one heck of a lot of ear wax!!!

Hee hee! Ear wax! I bet no one thought of that!!!!

Now, on to the panda den!

So far so good. It’s possible that by the time this publishes, there will be a new baby panda in the cubby den. The latest report from the folks with their eyes on the ultrasound sounds very hopeful. Pseudo thumbs crossed!

Be the Bear!

This series was in honor of Jayelle. Gone, but never forgotten. 

Bears on the Run, Bears on the Run!

Here we are, back again for the second episode of our panda tribute to our departed friend! I think that Six is gonna be in a lot of trouble when this is all over!

And we’re off to the races!!!!

What WAS that stuff Six dumped in front of Sebben’s car?

A Tribute in Pandas

You may recall that a few weeks ago, we lost one of our dear members of the panda community. Jayelle was a fierce defender of her family, her friends, all animals (especially pandas) and her beloved NASCAR races. One of the panda fam suggested I do something incorporating her avatar (a panda with a checkered racing flag) into a ‘toon.

Never one to resist taking a simple idea and loading it up with a bunch of other stuff, I share with you now, this 3 part series that celebrates at least some of the things she loved.

Pandas go to the races!!!

Who will win? Six and Sebben battle it out on the track!

be the bear, everyone!

Panda On !

Yesterday was a day, wasn’t it?

Between sadness for lives too short and outrage at what is going on in Portland, OR right now, I’m kind of worn out. So I’m just going to leave you with today’s ‘toon, ‘kay?

I think we need some bears behaving badly, don’t you?

There were never such devoted sisters…

Be the Bear

Keeping our fingers crossed that we will hear the pitter patter of little paws in DC soon… Happy BearDay Mommee Mei!

The moment you’ve all been waiting for…

No, Pinky has not taken her rightful place as Presydent of the Untied States. Nor has Ping Ping learned to speak American Panda. (Ping!!!) No! Today is the day that Six and Sebben get their Panda Scout uniforms!

Huzzah! On with the show!

Cuteness abounds!

Panda On!
It’s Wednesday! gateway to the gateway to the weekend!

Bring on the panda birthday cakes!

Panda Trek 2: The Next Generation

As I was looking for ‘toons for this week’s round up, I realized I had not done any of the twins until January of 2017. Partly, I’ve become a little superstitious, and not wanting to do ‘toons about baby pandas until I’m reasonably sure they are healthy, but mostly, I think because I was…um distracted. You know what I’m talking about.

Anyway, onward with the cute baby pandas.

Tell Me a Story

We are starting a NEW Story this week! Huzzah! It is another of my fractured retellings of a very old and familiar story, with my own little pandy twist to it! Bwahahahahaha!

But first, I must report about PandAlanta fest, which took place last weekend at the Atlanta Zoo!  A fabulous time was had by all, including the stars of the weekend, Six and Sebben, those delightful little pandas residing at the zoo with their parents. In addition to the warm up act (me!!!) we had a fabulous presentation from the folks at PDX Wildlife, who study – of all things – PANDAS!!!! What? You were expecting naked mole rats? Any way, they shared lots of pictures and told us about their research. Expect to see more about them here as not only are they doing important work for panda conservation, they were really nice people too!

But now! The Panda Chronicles presents, the latest in our long line of literary abominations, KittySue and the Three Pandas!!!!

story

This story seems a little, but not entirely, familiar!

Huzzah!

Book 7: Don’t Call Mee Boo Boo, has been getting a resounding welcome out there in the pandasphere and to thank you, we are offering a sale on all the earlier books in the Panda Chronicle Series, in case your library is not all stocked up on the earlier titles! You can find links to all the books here. 

But don’t delay! These prices will go back up to list price on Saturday, April 1st, so don’t delay! No Foolin’!!!

And in case you were wondering what I was up to last weekend at panda fest….

Panda on!
