The Panda Kindergarten Must Be Stopped!!!

I’m fairly sure that the Panda Kindergarten must be responsible for the difficulties I’ve been having with the Pandashpere. I am now setting this up in what WP calls the Block Editor. Things appear and disappear randomly, as if a certain small panda was using her magical wand to foul things up.

Hmm…

But when I try to use the “classic editor” which has helped me lo these many years to bring you all the panda satire you need and want, it does other strange things like not publish scheduled posts or stop working while I’m in the middle of composing these wise pontifications…um…I mean incoherent blatherings.

Oh well…maybe I should just ask Pinky!

You know you should never ask Pinky!

Thank you to my talented web guru, I once again have the Classic Editor to set upon my posts. He put in a different plugin to allow me to have my luddite tendencies a bit longer. It does seem to be doing this strange thing once again. where I lose the connection temporarily, but it does seem to allow me to keep typing.

I don’t know. It’s all a mystery to me.

But Meanwhile, here is Pinky, once again, with all the answers!

Will Mei ever learn that it doesn’t pay to ask Pinky anything?

Spring is in the Air

I’m still getting the hang of this new block(head) editor. I’m sure it is a good thing…now if I can just figure out how to do everything I need to do.

Speaking of doing things, I made some Easter Pandas! They’ll be available to order for a limited time.

The Easter Pandas! $42 plus the usual shipping charges. Maybe they will come with some tiny Easter eggs if I can find appropriate baskets!

So how about some ‘toons!

What’s Black and White and carries cuppycakes in a basket?
Your marketing team is just as important as your writing!
Oh, Bob, you didn’t really say that, did you?
And look who Bob’s suspension replacement is! Huzzah!
And now…going for the gold!!!

Well, I’m still finding my way around here, so that’s all for today. I’m still having trouble with the links to the new ‘toon post loading correctly when the link gets shared, but the general website address seems to work okay. So sharing on Twidder and fez book will be somewhat more erratic.

Till later…

Buy Stuff with pandas and Be the Bear!

Maybe I Should Ask Pinky How to Fix the Computer….

I seem to be having some technical difficulties, but hopefully, they will sort themselves out (and by themselves, I mean my very capable and accessible web guru, Nate Hoffelder who writes The Digital Reader and has a web guru business)

I wonder if some of my problems are due to my reluctance to give up the old editing interface that I’ve been using for the past 10 years, and move on to the new WordPress way of doing things….sigh…

Anyway….Pinky still has more questions to answer!

I wonder “who” the mysterious advice seeker is!

I am trying the newfangled editing thingie, and I guess I don’t totally hate it. Maybe I will even get used to it in a few weeks!

Till then…

Beware the Ides of March!

Oops. The Ides of March (whatever the heck they are) were yesterday. I’m more concerned with the Ides of April (aka tax day)! Maybe we should be more worried about the Ides of Pinky!

But fast on the heels of the Ides, comes National Panda Day! No, I am not making this up. (Some people would say that EVERY day is panda day, and you know? They might be right!)

Let’s Ask Pinky!

Pinky has another great idea!

You Know What Today Is!

Yes, it’s the beginning of Daylight Savings Time, here in most of the USA, and you know what THAT means!

Yes, it’s time for THIS ‘toon!

Sunday Funday KNOWS that this is one of your favorites!

I crack me up!

There are more ‘toons to come, but first…Last week the world of children’s literature lost one of it’s greatest practitioners, Norton Juster.

If you don’t recognize the name, run, don’t walk to your favorite bookstore, and buy your very own copy of The Phantom Tollbooth. TPT is one of those books. Published in 1961, I read it for the first time a few years after that. For years afterward, I could remember little snippets, but could never quite remember the title, or when I had read it, but the magic of this book never quite let go. When I found it again, it was as if I had been shown the entrance to a magical place, not unlike tasing through the tollbooth itself.

There are so many great books being written for children and teens right now. But I re-read The Phantom Tollbooth every year or so, because it never fails to reveal something new, that I really need to know. I hope you already love this book, but if you don’t know it, what are you waiting for?

And now, more pandas! (Expect the Panda Kindergarten!)

Well *bleep* and take your *bleep* and stick it *bleep*!!!!

Bikkie Goes Outside!

It has been so much fun watching Bikkie go up and down trees, playing and sleeping in the hammock, and following Mommee and making practice pounces. Bikkie is a very good pouncer.

But all tree climbing pandas have to start somewhere!

Bikkie: But why can’t I climb da big tree?

Don’t forget! During March Madness (aka The Panda Season of Love), all felty panda orders will include a roll of Panda Season of Love washi tape (not to mention an assortment of stickers!)

The best thing that could happen today would be this:

The worst thing that could happen today would be an encore presentation of an armed insurrection at the Capitol, so maybe let’s do this instead:

Watching the Panda Cam is BEARY relaxing!!!!

Is there anything more fun than watching Bike play wit Mommee or even just roll around in the den by himself?

Don’t forget! all felty orders during the month of March (known by millions as the Panda Season of Love and Panda Scout cookie month!) get a free roll of Panda Season of Love Washi tape! Huzzah!
