In Honor of Six and Sebben!

It was Six and Sebben’s birthday this week! Hard to believe they turned FOUR!!! As is traditional at The Panda Chronicles, I like to feature the birthday bears on a Sunday Funday dive into the archives. Is it my fault if Pinky took three weeks to celebrate her birthday? She *might* make an appearance here too!

I’m working on some new felties which I really swear I will get photographed and up on the Buy Stuff with Pandas page…really soon! I went for a last visit to my felty supplier, Abundant Earth Fiber. The coronavirus restrictions meant they had to be closed for more than 4 months. Although they do have a vibrant online store, as a new member of the fiber arts community, their store was like a trip to Wonderland. There were always someone there, either knitting or spinning or just hanging out and ready to talk about wool. They recently made the difficult decision to close their retail space.

The mill lives on and they’ve made arrangements with another local store to carry some of their best selling yarns and fibers, and also to serve as a pick up location for online orders for us locals. As part of their closing, they had a sale on everything in the shop, so I am well stocked up on fiber for now. They are currently offering free shipping on everything ordered online for US addresses, so if you are a knitter, (or felter!) and want to order some stunningly beautiful yarn, I hope you’ll check them out. I don’t get anything for promoting them (other than their continued existence). Their philosophy of small, high quality batch yarn and fibers really resonates with me.

But enough about the real world! Let’s take a look back in the archives for the Life and Times of Six and Sebben!

Pinky’s previous minions are all grown up now, and know better than to listen to her, but…

Pinky and her new minions get down to serious business

I don’t think this crew of minions is going to be quite as devoted as her last ones.

I just thought we all needed a good laugh, so….

Did I just see what I thought I saw?

The Great Race Grand Finale!!!

The  week of torturing you till the winner of the race was revealed is finally OVER! (Not to mention for those of you who were wondering what Six poured onto the track!)

HUZZAH!

There is news from the DC Panda House, but I’ll save it till after today’s ‘toon. If I make you wait any longer, you’ll show up at my house with burning pitchforks!

As they race toward the finish line…

That’s one heck of a lot of ear wax!!!

Hee hee! Ear wax! I bet no one thought of that!!!!

Now, on to the panda den!

So far so good. It’s possible that by the time this publishes, there will be a new baby panda in the cubby den. The latest report from the folks with their eyes on the ultrasound sounds very hopeful. Pseudo thumbs crossed!

Be the Bear!

This series was in honor of Jayelle. Gone, but never forgotten. 

Bears on the Run, Bears on the Run!

Here we are, back again for the second episode of our panda tribute to our departed friend! I think that Six is gonna be in a lot of trouble when this is all over!

And we’re off to the races!!!!

What WAS that stuff Six dumped in front of Sebben’s car?

Yesterday was a day, wasn’t it?

Between sadness for lives too short and outrage at what is going on in Portland, OR right now, I’m kind of worn out. So I’m just going to leave you with today’s ‘toon, ‘kay?

I think we need some bears behaving badly, don’t you?

There were never such devoted sisters…

Keeping our fingers crossed that we will hear the pitter patter of little paws in DC soon… Happy BearDay Mommee Mei!

Oopsie!

Consider this a placeholder till I am in the right place with the right ‘toon for today! In the meantime, it is the Meihem’s birthday! Yes! Today (even though it was already tomorrow in China where the real Meihems have had their cake, slugged down a few bootinis and told some scandalous jokes at Pinky’s expense.

Oh, maybe that was not the real Meihem sisters after all.

There must be cake!

Anyway, I’ll be back later today with the real ‘toon for today!

Panda Birthday Season Continues!

It is difficult, as I may have mentioned last week, to show a ‘toon starring the Meihems that doesn’t have Pinky somehow messed up in it. Since Pinky’s early years were sans at home siblings, the Meihems filled that valuable role, that of someone to fight with! (Not that I’d know anything about that, heh, heh!)

So, in celebration of the Meihems’ upcoming birthday season I present one of my favorite stories starring The Meihems (and PINKY!!!!)…

HIGHWAY GATE!!! (Inspired by the true story of a New Jersey bridge, shut down by a certain Governor!)

George Washington Bridge lane closure satire.

Princess Pinky Bao Bao…what have you done now?

zoo atlanta, bao bao, national zoo

Time to call in …Inspector panda!

Mei xiang and bao bao try to cover up highway-gate

Inspector Panda is on the job!

“Hello, Bai Yun? this is Lun Lun…about that detective you suggested…”

Please note the introduction of “Binky Bars” to the narrative…

…of course Boo-mints are pretty good too.

Inspector panda

Will the twins get a merit badge for their road trip? will Lun Lun fess up to where the girls are? will Inspector Panda get a clue, or at least more twitter followers. Stay tuned!

Bao Bao, washington DC cover-up

Oh, Pinky…what have you done?

Howdy, Mr Kitty, kindly tell us where a tired old cowpoke can get a boo beer and a cuppycake.

Apparently I didn’t come up with a more definitive end to this story. Sorry about that! here are some more ‘toons starring all the girls!

enquiring minds want to know….

farewell

Fast furry friends…for now

One of the little known wonders of the world.

I love a good art forgery, don’t you?

Oh dear, the Mei-hem twinkies have made Pinky mad. Uh oh.

Panda on!

Panda Satire is an Essential Industry

As I ponder the political paradigm shift that is at our door, sometimes I am drawn to the dark visage that is on the other side of the door.

Hang on to your hats, kids, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!

I think that maybe I am not doing anything to help the current debacle we are facing. Then I remember:

Panda Satire IS an essential industry!

So many people have told me, that these ‘toons help them face the day. Laughter in times of tyrannyis a political act. So let’s do all we can to laugh in the face of fascism.

Ha ha HA! Take that!
BRING ON THE PANDAS!

We are entering the American Panda Birthday Season! Who can forget the excitement of the first Cublanta twins birth?

Mr Wu speaks out!

While Mr.Wu was the first panda I watched from birth, his birthday is not the first of the year! Let’s put our paws together for the Meihem Twins, Bert and Ernie!

The first appearance of the Meihems!

Uh oh! Pinky did a bad thing!

Ready for panda kindergarten!

You wouldn’t believe how hard it was to find ‘toons with Bert and Ernie without Pinky in them! We’ll feature some of the ‘toons that Pinky has horned in on…I mean, when Pinky joins the Meihems,  but now, let’s remind everyone how animals feel about fireworks on the 4th of July!

uh. oh.

Huzzah for Rumpy Dog!

A Happy (belated) Panada Day to our neighbors from the north!

Oh Panada, Oh Panada, how tasty are your maple leaves….

Panda on,

Buh buh buh buh BYEEEEEEEE!

How many of you remember the old SNL routine, with the flight attendants saying goodbye to the departing passengers?  As the people filed off the plane, the flight crew got ruder and ruder, and the “buh bye now!” got more sarcastic with each passenger. I think of this often, because an acquaintance of mine, who works in a local shop, and I have had an ongoing “buh bye” routine going for years.

We try to sneak up on each other so that each of us can be the first to say it. I’m afraid I’ll never top her “drive-by buh bye” that she delivered out her car window, as she saw me walking down the street. I hope that which ever one of us survives longer, at the memorial service for our departed friend, has the presence of mind to whisper “buh bye!” Who says people who live in small towns don’t know how to have fun?

It seems only natural that Pinky would deliver this line to the departing Cublanta twins!

Buh BYEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

Of course the Meihems just ignore her!

Real Life Panda Alert!

Xing Er, lately of Copenhagen Zoo, decided that his enclosure was just way too boring, and he went walkabout in the zoo. He climbed a metal pole to make his escape (I spit on your tree guards!!!!). While there have been numerous red pandas that have managed at least a temporary scamper to freedom, this is the first time that I have heard of a giant panda making an escape. (Other than Pinky, but she had a secret tunnel!) You go, Xing Er!!!

We are all getting tired of staying at home!

“Hey Lun Lun, would you pick up if you’re there…”

“When did you say you were sending the car for the girls????”

Life at Chez Mei is never dull! Even in a pandemic quarantine. Especially in a pandemic quarantine!

Let’s look in, shall we?

Pinky: six an’ sebben make even ME look good!

Nooz from Felty Panda Central:

I’m starting some experimenting with some new pandas! Pictures to come soon, and also some fun swag with every order while supplies last. More on this later!

Stay safe everyone!

Panda ON!

It’s going to be a long, hot summer…

…and probably not in a good way.

I have to admit, the last couple days have been very hard. More than 100,000 people have died in the US from COVID19. Protests have turned into riots, which seem to be fueled by HWMNBN pouring gasoline on the flames, as well as the very real possibility that those white supremacist groups that showed up at state Capitols with not so much as a slap on the wrist, are showing up, to increase the violence and use the (mostly) peaceful protesters as cover.

HWMNBN’s Liar General is claiming that these are “radical left extremists.” I’m pretty sure this is a lie. Audible violence is mere blocks away from the homes of people I care about. I am safe (for the moment) in my forest hideaway and feel very fortunate that this is so.

There is not much I can do from here, besides send adorable, funny pandas out into the world.

Here ya go!

Our lack of taste is only exceeded by our sense of the absurd.

And just how did the panda kindergarten get her address?

Who’s the bear???!!!

Varooooooomba! Thanks to Lynnie Ness for alerting us to the “off label” use of the Roomba robot vacuum cleaner.

The panda kindergarten is so very helpful.

He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!

This one is still my favorite:

See? I told you it was broken!

I hope these ‘toons with no whiff of HWMNBN helped heal your hearts a little this morning! Panda on, everyone!

Many thanks to those who are sharing pictures of your newly arrived panda masks! They are absolutely adorable, and it gives me great pleasure to know that Pinky, Bubba, Bee (the Bear) and young Pirate Wu are keeping you all safe! 

Take care everyone!
Wands Up!
Stay Safe!
