As you probably noticed, the Tuesday ‘toon was not only late, but totally missing in action. We had some wild wind, starting Sunday night and continuing on through Monday evening.
I expected the power to go out sometime Sunday night, so was pleasantly surprised to still have electricity on Monday morning. LOTS of time to finish ‘Tuesday’s ‘toon …hahahaha!
Not so much…
Life on Whidbey is full of power outages, although these days they are mostly not as long or as frequent as they used to be. But all the rain and then high winds took many trees down where they landed on wires. This wind was one of the more fearsome ones we’ve had in a while, and while branches bounced off the roof, no trees fell on my house or driveway. Okay, so there was one that missed my house by about 15 feet and took out some big rhododendrons…
But here I am talking about me, while you are waiting for your ‘toon!
Did I mention how much I love the Muppets?
What I really want to know, is did Ted Cruz’s daughters get mad at him for attacking Big Bird?
And remember! The good thing about me being late is that there will be a new ‘toon tomorrow too!
Be the Bear! Bob T stay-out-of-trees-in-a-wind-storm Panda
Yes, yes, there should be cake too, but as today is Election Day in many states, nothing would make me happier than knowing you voted. Well, knowing you voted AND I got a nice big piece of cake with lots of frosting!
Fezbook lists November 1st as my birthday, but it is really just the first day of my Birthday Season! My Birthday season goes for a while yet, so if you missed wishing me a happy day yesterday, you still have LOTS of time! So much time! So much CAKE!!!
But now, for our feature presentation for today (remember that whole Election Day thingie?)
Apparently there was some confusion about why Bob was all bandaged up. This is most likely due to my disjointed way of posting ‘toons. So that there is no confusion, I will post both of the zebra interview ‘toons here. There will be a third one coming, but who knows when?
You asked for it, and you got it! But is this the end? ZooNooz thinks not! We have just received word that officials have decided to attempt a sting operation, wherein they use undercover zebras to lure the remaining two zebras on the loose! Is this another of Pinky’s selfie fundraising schemes?
Enquiring minds want to know!
Be sure to ‘toon in on Thursday for the next chapter of The Bears of the Baskervilles. our 2021 Halloween extravaganza!
While there has been some well deserved criticism on how some journalists cover the various presidential administrations, ZooNooZ has always been right on the money, if we do say so ourselves. We should point out that this segment was filmed BEFORE Bob went out on assignment to interview the zealot zeal of zebras that is currently running amok in suburban Maryland. Just in case you were thinking that Bob escaped unscathed. There was definitely scathing.
We are impatiently waiting for the proofs of The Panda Chronicles Book9: What could Possibly go Wrong? to arrive! We will announce it the minute it is available for purchase. Pretty exciting, huh?
And as if I didn’t have enough to do, I volunteered to make some ‘toons in support of a local school board race. I don’t think I have to tell any of the followers of The Panda Chronicles that our political nightmare is not yet over. Even now, the sedition caucus in the Senate was trying to downplay the level of threats and aggression (and sometimes violence) that is happening at school board meetings around the country. I’ll be sharing the ‘toons from the Politics on the Prowl series after they have run in whatever format the campaign uses to share them.
I urge you not to put your head under the covers and sing la-la-la I can’t hear you, as much as we may want to. Please check your voter registration at your state voter portal, spend 10 minutes reading up on the candidates and VOTE this November (or as soon as you receive your mail in ballot.)
I found several names, the first being a dazzle, but I also found they can be called a zeal! I love alliterations, so a zeal of zebras hits me just right!
A group of pandas, of course, is an embarrassment. No, I mean that’s what a group of pandas is called. I mean, pandas can be embarrassing! I mean have you seem them eat? Before you know it, their tummies are covered in bamboo pieces, or cookie crumbs, or frosting…
Some Pandas are embarrassing even when they’re NOT in a group!
Read on for some exciting NOOZ!!!!
Yeas! It’s true! Book 9 of the Panda Chronicles is right around the corner!!! I’ve been working on it, procrastinating, working a bit more, some more procrastination, interspersed with some new technology frustration, but it is finally DONE!!!!
Proofs have been ordered, and should arrive by early next week, so as soon as I make sure they put in the pages in the right order and right directions, I can push the old publish button, and BOB’S YOUR UNCLE!!!
And now, a little cover reveal, just for you to see first!
My alert friends and readers are always making sure I’ve heard of all the stories of animals misbehaving around the world. These stories almost never disappoint, and this one is no exception!
A herd of about 15 asian elephants have been running amok in towns and farmlands in south Yunnan province, where most of the endangered elephants live. They don’t know why these elephants have gone on walk-about, and they are trying to find a suitable place for them to settle.
Of course, the intrepid roving reporter at ZooNooZ is on the scene!
We are in the midst of a heat wave here in the upper left coast! Temperatures in Seattle and Portlandia hit over 100, but here on a small island off in the Puget Sound, we have managed to stay below 100 (at 99) I hear there is not a fan to be found, or an air conditioner, so I am getting up close and personal with every ice pack in the freezer! Temperatures are predicted to drop over night, which will be a welcome relief!
