It’s 31 Days of Pandas EVE!!!

Before we fully dive into 31 Days of Pandas, we have a couple more episodes of Bears of the Baskervilles! I’m going to run them today (Tuesday) and then tomorrow (Day 1 of 31 Days of Pandas) and then we will go into our 31 Days of Pandas programming, while I figure out…um…I mean FINISH Bears of the Baskervilles. Then I will do a full recap of B of the B towards the end of the month, so it’s not too confusing as I cut in and out of other stories.

Because after 12 years of doing The Panda Chronicles, I have more than a couple holiday stories!

We have many new readers, and those who have been around for lots of this panda journey enjoy seeing them again!

So, here we go with episode 9 of …

Bears of the Baskervilles!!!!

I bet you knew that it was going to be Six and Sebben!

Be sure to ‘toon in tomorrow for ANOTHER episode, and day 1 of 31 Days of Pandas!

Bethe Bear!

Part Two of our Encore Presentation of Beary Poppins!

Now where were we…oh yes…

Gosh I really hate to leave you on this cliffhanger for the weekend, but…
Bikkie has a name!!!!
Once upon a time…
Bike loves Beary Poppins! Also Rory the Dinosaur by Liz Climo
I think Biscuit and Beary Poppins are forming a real bond!
It wasn’t me!
A promise is a promise, even among grizzly bears!
Let’s go fly a kite…
uh oh.
I was afraid there would be yelling…so much yelling!
Silly old bears!
Ebbryone needs a Beary Poppins!

Yes, Bikkie was the best thing about 2020 (and as it turns out 2021 so far). We are grateful for our little Miracle Bear, and hope this Beary Poppins Encore Presentation distracted you from the fact I left you hanging about who is knocking at the door, will bear Poppins arrive in time for Bikkie’s birthday party and just where is PPJ? Heh!

‘Toon on tomorrow to find out if Bikkie got his birthday wish!

Be the Bear!

If You Think getting People…umPandas to pose for a Photograph is Hard…

Bebe Maurice will have his paws full trying to get everyone to sit still and pose for this Pawtrait. I hope he can paint fast! The birthday season is barely a week and a half away! And Bikkie is bereft of his Beary Poppins. Will the dashing duo make it in time for the party?

Stay ‘tooned!

Everyone smile! Now hold it….keep holding…keep holding…

Be the Bear!

Aren’t We Glad We Can All Gather Together Again?

Well, MAYBE we are…

So many moving pieces to figure out! A Mother Panda’s job is never done!

Sorry for the delay in posting. For the last mebbee…I don’t know, 5 years, I’ve done really well posting to a schedule. For some reason I am lately a day late and a dollar short. Yesterday there was a terrible fire in my neighborhood, about 3/4 of a mile from my house. Maybe less. It was really traumatic, because, as you might know, I lost a house to fire about 26 years ago. It is so dry here, and without the fast action of our local fire department (which has been stressed because of the dry weather) it could have been a lot worse for our whole community. All humans and animals are okay. The house not so much.

So, I might be using someone else’s disaster to excuse my tardiness, but then again, I did have to take a walk to see if the woods were on fire. (they weren’t.

So, anyway, Mei is having her own disaster. enjoy!

Be the Bear,

I bet you thought we forgot!

I wasn’t referring to my tardiness with this ‘toon, but I guess that applies too. What with all the excitement about Frank and Mikey’s family trip, I bet you thought I forgot that BeBe Maurice was coming to visit the DC pandas, and also that Mei Xiang’s sister Lun Lun foisted off the twins, Six & Sebben, on her.

Is that the doorbell I hear?

Whoever could it be? Fun art note, in my rough draft, I just had the doorbell ringing once, but then I thought, how would Mei know that it was Six & Sebben? I think the solution was obvious.

Putting the “Zoo” in “Zoom”!

I don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner, but you can’t have “Zoom Meetings” without the ZOO!

Six and Sebben have gotten their first Panda Scout merit badges!!!

There are so many stories to get to! And I’ve left Frank and Mikey wandering around Alaska, looking for their family. Sigh…I’m sure I’ll track them down…eventually.

Meanwhile, western Washington is experiencing record temperatures! Stay cool, everyone!

Panda on,
Bob T Panda
