Daring to Hope

It is still Pinky (Bubba: an’ BUBBA’S!!!) Birthday Season, so we have still more ‘toons starring this dynamic duo! (Bubba: don’ forget ping!) Yes, you too, Ping.

But first…some things that inspire…


Yes. I said it. Hope.

Seriously, there has been so little hope available lately. HWMNBN is now trying to disrupt the USPS with his hand picked handmaiden, with mail in voting the target of his malevolence.

But let’s put that aside for one day (after you call or email your Rep and Senators, and maybe your state’s AG while you’re at it.) while we acknowledge we have not one, but TWO things to be hopeful about. I’m not sure which one is more momentous…

Okay, since I got this news first, Joe Biden picked Kamala Harris to be his VP. That news alone made my heart soar, and made the sick feeling in my stomach recede for just a moment. ( Read Connie Schultz’s lovely post on hope here) Hearing their joint announcement helped me believe again that a future is possible. But then…


Now, we know from past experience that it’s not a done deal till a cubby (or two) pops out, and even then, success is not guaranteed. But for the moment…

Let’s choose HOPE!

So with no further ado, let’s get on to the celebration of all things Pinky! (Bubba: an’ bubba!!!!!)

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

These paws are made for walking….eventually.

Happy 100th day Birthday! More frosting!


You better watch out….

And then there was the day he had to figure out what to wear for his debut…

I’m ready for my close up!

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

That Pinky is too clever for her own good!

What’s that blinking red light over there?

I has no sekrets!!!!

You can’t just DO stuff. You need instruction from an expert!

Well, I could go on all day, but I’ll save some for next week, next weekend being Pinky ” Bubba’s actually birthday weekend! Until then, we’ll be keeping our pseudo thumbs crossed for a new cubby (or two!) in DC and for democracy to continue standing!

Don’t forget to tune in on Tuesday for the final installment about Six and Sebben’s great race! What  was that stuff Six dumped on the track??? Any guesses? Here’s episode One and episode Two, in case you missed them!

    “Hope” is the thing with feathers –
    That perches in the soul –
    And sings the tune without the words –
    And never stops – at all –

    This is for you!! I know what you mean about hope. Emily Dickinson would approve!
    The best news ever was maybe a new cubby! A miracle, I hope!
    Also, the rat who heads the Post Office is subpoenaed! Huzzah! Ben Franklin has spun in his grave over the changes the rat made. Another attack on our democracy!
    I am wondering if we have to call out the Minutemen of yore after this election. I feel like Liberty leading the troops to the barricades a la French Revolution of the 1830s!
    Paws crossed, pseudo thumbs crossed, etc for Miracle Mommee Mei!
    Hang in there!
    And thank you for this great ‘toons! Love the repartee between Bubba, Mommee, and Pinky!
    You are so talented and clever! Huzzah!

      Emmy D definitely said it best! I will never stop hoping.
      Pseudo thumbs crossed for a safe birth and healthy cubby. This would be the best news ever!

      I am not giving up hope either, but geez, this is some scary shit coming out of HWMNBN’s mouth.
      The lasted ultrasound and report from the panda nannies is very encouraging. We need this bad!
