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?

It’s not only the Panda Season of Love, it is ALSO…

Panda Scout Cookie Time!!!!!

Yeas, that’s right! It’s Panda Scout cookie Season, so Sunday Funday presents all the cookie fun we can find!

Enjoy a Binkie Bar today!!!

On my honor, I will try…to eat as many cookies as I possibly can….

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…”

…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.

…and then it will be time for the Easter Panda!

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?

Be the bear!

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!

We are in The Panda Season of LOOOOOVE!

It’s that time of year again when a panda’s thoughts turn too…um…what was it they turn to?

Oh yeah! Romance! It’s the Panda Season of Love!

Since it’s the Panda Season of Love, all felty panda orders in the month of March will have a bonus of a roll of Panda Season of Love Washi tape!

Tape is about 1 1/8″ wide and rolls are about 10 YDs long. Shows brighter here than it is.

I hope people haven’t had enough of silly love songs!

I just love the cub reporter.

Love in the Time of Mittens (which, quite frankly, is a lot like the time of cholera)

The Scottish pandas have had a few disappointments…

A bear by any other name, would still smell pretty funky.

A panda by any other name, would smell…well, they would just smell…

No matter where the time goes, it’s always Bikkie Time!

How the heck did THAT happen? I turn my back for one minute and suddenly, February is almost over. I mean, I KNOW it is the shortest month and everything, but is it really supposed to be THIS short????

But since time in Pandyland is somewhat…shall we say…flexible, we will soon have the Panda Kindergarten presentation for this year’s Lunar New Year Celebration (Which was cancelled the  last two years because snakes and rats!!!) I can’t wait to see what the little darlings have up their paws, under the inestimable guidance of the leader of the Pandy Kindy, Bob T Panda!

But now, with no further ado….heeeeeeere’s Bikkie!

Bikkie is a Beary deep thinker!

Be the Bear!

I had an idea, but I left it somewhere else!

This happens to me all the time. I’ll be doing something or reading stuff on Twidder or Fezbook, and I’ll get a great idea for Sunday’s encore presentation of ‘toons. Then I get on the computer and I realize I’ve completely forgotten my very good, perfect, incredibly brilliant idea for Sunday’s post.

I am a bear of very little brain…

Oh! I just remembered one thing (the bear of little brain having jogged my memory): There have been new reports and camera sightings of the albino panda that has been seen in China! We did a ‘toon about him/her when they were first seen on camera in 2019.

I’m not a snowflake. You are a snowflake!

Which leads me to thinking about the injustice of wildlife cameras spying on pandas!

The secret lives of the wild panda!

And not only wild pandas are being spied on…

What’s that blinking red light over there?

I has no sekrets!!!!

And then the ‘toon about Snowflake also made me think of…

The irony of Mehitabel criticizing Pooh Bear for his wardrobe, does not escape me.

I’m not sure Mehitabel has anything to talk about.

Fortunately, all is quiet at the panda house! Have a relaxing (Mittens free) Sunday!

Mei and Tian2 contemplate the joys of the not very empty nest. (Grizzly bears take up a lot of room!)

Well PINKY thought it was a good idea!

While it doesn’t have anything to do with pandas, as I sit at my computer, getting ready to write this post, an owl (maybe two) is (are?) hooting in the woods behind my house! Life in the 5 Acre Wood is never dull!

Meanwhile, Pinky has hatched yet another plan to cash in on another younger sibling’s adorable self. Will she get away with it? Who knows! The idea for this series came from Twidder friend Boo Boo Panda ( @BooBooPanduh on Twidder) who likes to make videos from the panda cam footage, and put them to music. She always comes up with great music/video combinations and they are so much fun to watch.

She wanted to make a workout video for Bikkie, masterminded and produced by Pinky, and asked if I could do a related ‘toon. The previous two ‘toon postings and today’s ‘toon are the result!. You can watch her video HERE! I hope you enjoy it!

And now…Pinky Presents….

See, Mommee! No tigers!

Hee Hee! Just like a Jane Fonda workout video, am I right??

Be the Bear!

Pinky has a plan: we Pinky Promise!

Who remembers Pinky Promises? You hook pinkies with whoever you are making the promise to, and say, “I pinky promise!” Somehow, I suspect it has another meaning when Pinky says it.

Who thinks Mommee Mei is suspicious of this promise?

Just what does Pinky have up her sleeve?…um…paw?

Be the Bear!
