What did we do last February?

What were we doing at this time last year? I suspect we thought things could not get possibly get worse, but then, here we are!

Meanwhile, tiny pandas are marching off to save everyone!

The discovery of thousands of tiny pandas has rocked the archeological world! This find has been compared to the thousands of terra cotta warriors, discovered in China!

Some of the tiny felty pandas have already made their way to their new homes! More are on their way. Currently, I’m able to complete the pandas for about one group every week or so. Fans of Mr. Wu, heads up! your pandas will heading your way late next week!

But let’s see what we were up to last February!

Please, just go away, KittySue!

Wee are pandas too!!!!

Unka Rusty has some seriously feisty opinions!

Dis. Will Not. STAND!!!!!

Note to Bubba: never listen to Pinky

I see trouble in my crystal ball…

Even Nancy Pelosi listened enthusiastically!

Pinky is in the House!!!!

Panda on everyone!

Keep laughing everyone! And remember, we are laughing AT 45, not WITH him!

 

The view from the dark side…

Life in the USA seems kind of dark today. It’s not just the wind and the rain, although those definitely don’t help. As everyone, except his GOP sycophants knew, as soon as the vote not to hold HWMNBN accountable, 45 would start enacting retribution on those he perceives as his enemies.

The Purge has begun…

First Lt. Col. Vindman and his brother’s jobs went on the chopping block, and they were escorted off the WH grounds. As in everything else 45 does, maximum cruelty and humiliation are the agenda. Next, Gordon Sondland was recalled from his ambassadorship, effective immediately. I guess $1 million dollars doesn’t buy what it used to. There is no room in 45’s world for those who disagree with him, even once. He must attack and attempt to humiliate anyone who stands in his way.

I am not, in general, a fan of Mitt Romney, but his principled stand on the abuses of power by 45, are honorable, commendable, and done in the support of the Constitution. I would much rather have principled opponents, with whom I can disagree, than power hungry sycophants who want to win at any cost. Again, I would urge you to read the essays of historian Heather Cox Richardson, who is writing almost daily about the mess we find ourselves in. They are both frightening and hopeful at the same time. Gotta love those historians that can give us some perspective on all this.

Please forgive this descent into pessimism. Here are some (unfortunately) prophetic ‘toons.

Are you SURE you wouldn’t like to vote for Bob?

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Hey! The first felty pandas go out next week!

It’s the Panda Season of Love!

The electricity came back on just in the nick of time! A big windstorm yesterday evening took the power out for much of the island last night (the price of living in the trees!). My neighborhood appeared to be one of the last ones to get their power back and it returned just in time for me not to have to toddle off to the library with my laptop to prepare today’s post.

Huzzah!

But now on to more important things: It’s February, and you know what that means! it’s just about time for…

The Panda Season of Love!!!

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

it’s the panda, the panda season of love!

Aw, Pinky…Bubba loves you!

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

The Year in Review! Part 4, The Year’s End…

Before we start on our last installment of the Year in Review, I want to express my thanks to all who made the Tiny Panda Kickstarter project such a success! I am already hard at work making little needle felted pandas. Once all the Kickstarter paperwork is done, and the boxes and other panda shipping materials have arrived, I will start sending each group out as they are completed over the next 4-6 months. Part of me wishes I could have a class photo of all the completed pandas together, but in addition to the packing and shipping chaos that would cause, with the national stress level predicted to skyrocket in the next, oh, say 11 months, y’all are going to need to have these pandas as much as I need to make them.

Maybe next year’s project should be a recreation of the Chinese terra cotta Warriors, done as felted pandas.

Well, the trial of the Century has started. It has the predictable lines drawn: long, careful, evidence packed testimony by the Democratic House Managers, and loud lies and obfuscations by the tRUmp lawyers. The defense straddles between “He didn’t do it,” and “it’s not a crime if he did,” not to mention, “you don’t have enough evidence” (because “we blocked you from getting it.”)

Sigh…

But how did we get here? Let’s dive back into the Year in review! Starting with October…

I can’t believe how accurate these ‘toons have proved to be!

It’s been a long time coming. Hope he’ll be a looooong time gone!

All together now!

If Pinky wins the 2020 election, can we have panda-gate?

On to November…

“crime” is not a verb

Oh no! There are no pandas in this cartoon!

Our favorite grizzlies are doing “The Bus”!

And in December…

Obeying Pinky is not in the Consditooshun!

Not even Pinky is above the law. And if SHE isn’t, then Mittens sure as heck isn’t either!

Aaaaaannnddd I think this pretty much sums up the Senate Trial as well:

A bear can dream, am I right?

I think Bubba is almost as good a speaker as Adam Schiff!

So, That’s our year in review! We hope you enjoyed this look back over the last 12 months and really (really) hope we survive the next 12!

Panda On!

The Year in Review Part 2

Before we dive in to our Year in Review encore presentation, can I just say OH MY FRIGGING GOD!!!! The tiny panda (Hold me closer tiny panda) Kickstarter reached its goal amount 13 minutes after launching. I am astounded with gratitude for this response. It also was listed as a Kickstarter Project We Love most of the day on Friday. Needless (or needle-less) to say, I have a lot of felting to do over the coming months. If you are afraid you missed your favorite panda, check back at the project, because I added some more reward categories!

Thank you again, from deep within my heart. I can’t wait to get these pandas to you! (After I make them of course!) This has the added benefit of getting to visit the Abundant Earth Fiber store again, which may now be called my happy place!

But now, on with the Year in Review for April, May, and June (Wherein we are reminded of why we need emotional support pandas!)

it was a total coincidence that Babette’s ‘toon should run today.

Moove over! You’re crowding me!

Look who’s here!

On to May!

If you go out in the woods today, you’re in for a big surprise!

Irony is dead:

Who could have done this????

Did I just see what I thought I saw?

June is in ‘toon…

Bwahahahaha!

Frank and Mikey make another return appearance!

So, Mikey…how was the Grand Ol’ Opry?

And let’s not forget Six and Sebben!

Will these two ever get along?

Well, that’s it for today’s wrap up! See ya real soon!

Panda on!

Day 31 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Oh my goodness! It’s Day 31!!!! It’s New year’s Eve in my time zone. for some of you, it’s already next year! What ever time zone you are in, take a deep breath, sleep in, if you can, and think about how you are going to combat authoritarianism this year!

I’m going to do it by speaking out here, and in the real world, and keep drawing my ‘toons that speak my truth!

Keep being the bear!

WE need to do better in 2020! What can possibly go wrong?

Panda on!
Bob T Panda

Have the Happiest New Year that you can!

Day 25 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

I hope you are spending the morning in your PJ’s, surrounded by those you love. Holiday’s are not all they are cracked up to be, for many people, so if you have a complicated relationship with supposed joyful times of year (whatever holiday you do or don’t celebrate) cut yourself a great, big length of slack. Just remember, if your holiday is not what you wish it was, Donald tRUmp’s is turning out even worse than that. 🙂

Meanwhile, sit back and enjoy our feature presentation (starring Pinky!!!)…

101 Bebe Panda-Nation!

Zank hebben…for leettle bears!

Wait…who did you say is the star?

How many times do we have to tell you, DON’T ANSWER THE DOOR!!!!!

Babette can talk anyone into anything.

Uh oh.

When trouble arrives, it’s time to call for some MEIHEM!!!!!

This may be a job for…Inspector Panda!!!!

Inspector Panda has arrived! He’ll…um…solve everything!

Where is Babette taking them?

Cue the scary music!!!!

Will Pinky save the day?

How about that! Pinky DID save the day!

Happy New Year’s Eve and a (Im)peachy New Year!

 

Be the Bear!
Bob T Panda

My sincerest thanks, and fondest thought are with you all! Thanks for another great year in panda fandom!

Day 16 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

We are on the downhill slope:

towards the shortest day of the year…
towards the vote to impeach HWMNBN

TOWARDS THE END OF 31 DAYS OF PANDAS!!!!!!!

We shall have one more day of kinder, gentler pandas from a more innocent time, before heading paws first into the maelstrom! A healthy serving of cake (by which I mean a really large one with extra frosting) may be in order as well.

Invite Pinky to your holiday parties, with this Pinky Paper Doll!
