Holy Moly! It’s day 30 of 31 Days of Pandas! We are almost at the end as the ball in Times Square makes its descent into the unknown. We have lost so many treasured, talented individuals this year, and now we have to add yet another to the list (as if Gene Wilder, Carrie Fisher, and Alan Rickman weren’t loss enough!) Yes, the father and grandfather of so many pandas, particularly the US pandas, Pan Pan passed away yesterday at the age of 31. He was quite a bear with the ladies and fathered 30 cubs and has over 130 descendants. He was really da bear! Farewell, Pan Pan. You will shine brightly in panda heaven.
But now, the conclusion of the Twelve Days of CrispMoss! Are you ready to sing?

Hello, and Happy Bear Year to all. May your pandas prosper and your bamboo bounce!
Anne, I have noticed a recurring detail in the ‘toons that puzzles me…
All of their cars seem to be Right-hand drive, past and present. Are they chuffering
about in that most English of all vehicles, the Rolls Bearly?
Just wondering, and thanks. Thistle sends best wishes to Mehitabel.
The pandas all drive right hand drive cars. I’m not really sure why, but they always have. One of the mysterious things about pandas, I guess. Some of the first pandas out of China lived in England, so maybe they developed a taste for English cars at that time.
Mehitabel says hello back.
I love the 12 Days Of CrispMoss!
