We Now (FINALLY!!!) Return to Our Story

Somehow, even with the extra time I gave myself, I just finished this this morning. Oh well.

And away we go!

If you missed our recap of the first 5 episodes, they were last week on Tuesday and Thursday! Go read them, quick like a bunny!

See ya soon!

A Day Of Gratitude, Naps and Extra Desserts!

Honestly, I can’t think of anything to write that doesn’t depress the hell out of me, so I’m just gonna say, I hope this day is everything you wish it to be, that you have enough of what you need, and that you get to have something to be thankful for, and maybe a little bit of pie.

Rather than send everyone on a giant bummer, I’m just going to leave you with a thought and a wish. I wish you find what you need, that if you have more than you need you can share with others, and that someday, we will get to have more pandas here.

And here is a little refresher of the beginning of our story!

So, that’s where our story started. The most recent installments were on Tuesday the 21st, and Thursday the 16th. Tune in next week as our story continues. And check out Substack in December, where I will be re-running some of our Christmas stories, including the ever popular 12 Days of CrispMoss!

Panda on
Bob T full of gratitude for all of you Panda

Spoonflower and Redbbuble are in the throes of their holiday deal season. So this would be a very good time to hope over to my shops on Redbubble or Spoonflower to do a little holiday shopping. I’ve also been easing into my winter felty routine so if you were thinking about ordering some felties, this would be a great time to do it. Just reach out to me through the Contact Us page with your wishes and desires! And Panda Chronicles books make excellent presents! There are 10 now, plus the coloring books!

Hey! Remember that story I started a couple months ago?

We’re trying to get back to it. I thought it might be useful to have a bit of a re-run of the first 4 episodes today, and have the next installment on Thursday. But then again, maybe I’ll do it the other way, so that today’s toon, joins up better with last Thursday’s episode.

Somedays I just confuse myself!

While I’m thinking about it, both Spoonflower and Redbbuble are in the throes of their holiday deal season. So this would be a very good time to hope over to my shops on Redbubble or Spoonflower to do a little holiday shopping. I’ve also been easing into my winter felty routine so if you were thinking about ordering some felties, this would be a great time to do it. Just reach out to me through the Contact Us page with your wishes and desires!

Be sure to tune in (or should I say ‘toon in?) on Thursday to catch up on the beginning of our Bikkie/Pookie/Mister Poppee story! Maybe between 2nd nap and 3rd dessert!

Be the Bear!
Bob T pass the mashed potatoes Panda

BTW did everyone see the SNL cold open on Saturday?

Panda Exodus? Not So Much!

They just WANT you to believe that the pandas have gone back to China

But we know better, don’t we?

I am going to get back to my other story (The Mister Poppee, Pookie, and Bikkie adventure) sooner or later, but we had to provide some answers about what would happen vis-a-vis the “real world” (as if!) relocation of our pandas to China. I mean, the late Mehitabel is still commanding the NooZ desk at ZooNooZ heading onto 7 years since she departed for other realms, so do you think a little thing like reality is going to dissuade me from pretending the pandas are all still here?

Panda On!
Bob T is delusional Panda

They only WANT You to Believe The Pandas Left DC

Well, it COULD have happened this way…

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m still having a hard time coming to terms with the pandas leaving DC. I mean…how do we know that they didn’t double back, go through the secret tunnels Pinky had built, (MX: “WHAT secret tunnels?” Pinky: “um…you must have mis read dat, mommee…”) and are now hanging out in the luxury suite behind the scenes?

I guess we’ll find out soon!

Bob T I know nothing about any secret tunnels Panda

Never Fear, The Pandas Will Be Here

I bet everyone (in panda fandom) is having a day like I am. It’s like the day after you get dumped. You wake up, slowly open your eyes, then think, “why should I get out of bed….ever.”

But of course you have to get out of bed. You need to go to the bathroom. You need coffee. Your mouth feels like a truck with a bad exhaust problem drove through your mouth and parked there with the engine running for 5 hours.

You think…”pandas might be gone, but I still have The Panda Chronicles, right?…RIGHT????”

Why yes you do.

I mean…Pinky still has to run for president next year right? And those cuppycakes aren’t going to eat themselves. There may be a slight disturbance in the force, and we may have to briefly dip into reality (No! Say it isn’t so!) before we go on our merry way, ignoring reality and keeping all the pandas (and other bears) right where they belong.

Here, in Pandyland.

Panda on,
Bob T be nice to yourself today Panda

PS: Also the Democrats kicked the GQP’s butts in Tuesday’s elections, so there is that too.

It’s Election Day…not the, ya know, Big One, But Still Important

The world is insane. Don’t forget to make a little less insane, and get out and vote.

Mehitabel is still trying to school Bob on being a good citizen. Good luck with that!

BTW, I am not ignoring the fact that our DC pandas are heading to China. I am in denial, or more like, not quite sure how this will manifest in The Panda Chronicles. I guess we’ll find out, won’t we?

Please remember to vote today. Whether it is for school board or your city council, it’s all important. And really, don’t vote for Pinky. (Don’t tell her I said that)

Be the Bear
Bob T I voted and my ballot has been received Panda

Otis (the fuzzy one, anyway) is INNOCENT

You might have noticed a little radio silence these past couple weeks. I was on a little vacation from the inter webs, as I made my last visit to see our beloved DC panda family. For those of us who live far from DC, the fact that the DC pandas are moving to China is somewhat abstract. I rely on the photos and videos of those who live close by to keep up with all the goings on of Mei Xiang, Tian Tian, and of course, Bikkie.

There have been pandas in DC all of my adult life. I feel lucky to have gotten to see them so many times, even if it is a mere blip of time to those who live within panda proximity. They will be missed mightily. Until we have pandas again, we will have to get by with other bears. I live just far enough away from the Pookies that I don’t get to visit them often, but hope to make another visit or two this fall.

I was inspired by recent news reports to write this ‘toon for Otis, Fat Bear Emeritus of Brooks Falls. No matter what the nooz reports say, Otis is innocent!

The destruction in Acapulco is tragic and terrible, but couldn’t they have found another ‘O’ name for the hurricane?

BTW, in the US, we go back to Daylight losing time, despite the efforts of those who have tried to put us on permanent Daylight Saving Time. Alas…maybe next year. As such, as it is the tradition here at The Panda Chronicles, I rerun my much loved ‘toon:

Fabulous Furry Friday KNOWS that this is one of your favorites!

It’s Actual Halloween Today!

I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite Halloween ‘toons from over the years, as today’s post coincides with Halloween!

Panda Kindergarten halloween party
Trick or Trick!!!!!!!
comics history
Maybe Bubba is having a Halloween SEASON! Did you ever think of THAT, Pinky?
Make sure Pinky doesn’t try to steal Bubba and Ping’s candy!
This is from 2019 and unfortunately still somewhat relevant

Be the Bear!
Bob T trick or treat Panda!

And Now, for Part 2 of A Halloween Carol!

Starring Pinky!

Hmmm… Pinky still does not seem impressed. Perhaps the ghost of Halloween present will have more influence over her.
Uh oh, the ghost of halloween present just caught up with Pinky…
Was that list in small type, single spaced?
The Spirit of Halloweens yet to come is not a spirit to be messed with, right?
Surely you didn’t think she would totally reform, did you?

I hope you enjoyed this encore presentation of A Halloween Carol. It is still one of my favorites, with Pinky at her Pinky-est! You can still catch up with The Wizard of Wu over at Substack. You know you want to!
