Saturday Was Bikkie’s Bearday!!!!

As a special treat, we thought we would share the story of Beary Poppins in it’s entirety, while Bikkie recovers from his CAKE extravaganza!

Here we go!

Oh boy! Oh boy! A NEW story!!!!
I can hardly stand the suspense! Who will play Beary Poppins???
A spoonful of frosting makes the medicine go down, the medicine go down, medicine go down!
The ad is mailed, but Mittens is up to some dirty tricks….But wait! Look who found the mail box!!!
Bears are VERY curious!
This hat doesn’t make me look…um…too fluffy does it?
Frank is off on a new adventure!
Beary Poppins has arrived! Is there any cake? It’s been a long flight!
I wonder why no one else applied for the job!
I just love Mei’s little chats with her sister Lun Lun.
Why DIDN’T I eat all the cookies?
Don’t you just LOVE six and Sebben?

Well, this is getting a bit long, so I will set up the rest of beary Poppins to post on MONDAY (which is Pinky’s birthday

Happy Birthday To Bikkie, Bubba, and Pinky!

The Tension Builds! Will Mister Poppee Arrive in Time

What have I done!?!?

More than one person has desperately implored me to make sure Mister Poppee arrives in time for Bikkie’s birthday party!

But wait! Who could that be, knocking softly at the door?

I wish…I wish…I wish…don’t tell!

Geez, I can’t believe she’s gonna make us wait until Tuesday to find out who is knocking at the door! I mean, it could be the UPS driver or mebbee the Zoo Director…or…

Note: there will be highlights from Bikkie’s first year in the Sunday chronicles to tide you over until Tuesday’s ‘toon! Hey! Stop throwing stuff!

It is Bikkie’s Birthday week!

Do you think Frank and Mikey will make it back in time?

Just whose car did they “borrow”

Why aren’t there any donuts?

Excitement builds as we wait for Bikkie’s first birthday party! Will he flunk cake?

Stay tuned!

In Which We shall Attempt to Celebrate Bubba, While Realizing that Pinky Will Attempt to Take Over

Yes, today we celebrate Bubba’s Birthday Season! But first we must have a small bit of celebration that there is another panda birth to herald! Jia Jia and Kai Kai have just had their first cubby! All of Singapore is rejoicing tonight! (Well, I assume all of Singapore is, I mean, why wouldn’t they?) Not least of which, Aunty Lucilla, teller of tales about pandas, was thrilled to make the announcement! Congratulations Jia Jia and Kai Kai!

And now, some ‘toons about Bubba, with maybe a tiny bit of interloping by Pinky.

PP: um, dis is not going to interrupt my presidential campaign, is it?
Mr Bun has a question, daddee.

Okay, the next ones are going to be about Bubba…I’m almost certain!

Feed me, Mama!
Really, Pinky….It’s not nice to tease your little brother.
What the well dressed panda cub is wearing this season!

You better watch out….
And then there was the day he had to figure out what to wear for his debut…
I didn’t THINK that Pinky knew the “share” word.

Of course no trip down memory lane would be complete without one of my all time favorite ‘toons…

See? I told you it was broken!

Okay…so maybe EVERY ‘toon had Pinky in it. what can I say? #ClapLouder

If You Think getting People…umPandas to pose for a Photograph is Hard…

Bebe Maurice will have his paws full trying to get everyone to sit still and pose for this Pawtrait. I hope he can paint fast! The birthday season is barely a week and a half away! And Bikkie is bereft of his Beary Poppins. Will the dashing duo make it in time for the party?

Stay ‘tooned!

Everyone smile! Now hold it….keep holding…keep holding…

Who Knew That You Shouldn’t Put Chocolate Donuts Under Your Pillow?

I mean, how was Bikkie to know?

Bears have a very well developed sense of smell!

It’s not that I don’t have a lot to say, but I’m just coming out of a long Art Show weekend, which was very fun, rather stressful, and completely exhausting. Masks were worn by all!

Life in the Panda House continues…

I’m listening to a podcast story (What a Day!) and they are relating a news story about a guy who was so rude on an airplane (physically assaulting two flight attendants) that the flight crew duct taped him to his seat.

I have questions!

Did they gag him too? If so, was it before or after he yelled something on the order of “Do you know who my parents are?” And can we do this to certain members of Congress who insist on saying stupid things, while interrupting the legislative process?

Hey! I’m just asking questions!

But meanwhile at the Panda House…

For more about why they need a fresh set of sheets on the guest room bed, see Tuesday’s ‘toon!

Stay ‘tooned next week for the next exciting episode of The Panda Chronicles!

It’s Been a Week

There is so much going on, most of which I really don’t even want to think about: the ongoing surge in coronavirus, brought on, at least in part by the unwillingness of a sizable portion of the population that could get vaccinated, but won’t. The cancer death of another acquaintance, the continuing (and escalating) dangerous lies about the election and subsequent attempted coup.

And MAYBE I did not acknowledge a certain little panda princess’s birthday on the actual day…

Sigh…

Meanwhile, it is now birthday month for the trio from DC, the offspring of the Xiang Tian Clan, so I guess all of the Sunday roundups for the entire month will have to be about them!

Gee…I wonder if I have any ‘toons about Pinky...#ClapLouder

Pinky tests her powers….
National Zoo cub makes mom Mei Xiang disappear
oops.
Princess Pinky is fooled by Mei Xiang at the National Zoo
Oh Princess Pinky, mom has a trick or two up her paw, I think…
Bao bao changes panda cub gender
Pinky is VERY powerful. Be afraid, be very afraid, Mr Wu.
Princess Pinky helps with new years resolutions
You say you want a resolution, well, you know, it is hard to change a bear….

And, of course, one of my personal favorites…

deleted footage from press conference
Pinky answers difficult questions from the press in her own way.

Maybe by the time this hits the cyber waves, Huan Huan will have gifted us with a pair of cubby siblings to BeBe Maurice! If not, this will give you some reading material while you wait!

Aren’t We Glad We Can All Gather Together Again?

Well, MAYBE we are…

So many moving pieces to figure out! A Mother Panda’s job is never done!

Sorry for the delay in posting. For the last mebbee…I don’t know, 5 years, I’ve done really well posting to a schedule. For some reason I am lately a day late and a dollar short. Yesterday there was a terrible fire in my neighborhood, about 3/4 of a mile from my house. Maybe less. It was really traumatic, because, as you might know, I lost a house to fire about 26 years ago. It is so dry here, and without the fast action of our local fire department (which has been stressed because of the dry weather) it could have been a lot worse for our whole community. All humans and animals are okay. The house not so much.

So, I might be using someone else’s disaster to excuse my tardiness, but then again, I did have to take a walk to see if the woods were on fire. (they weren’t.

So, anyway, Mei is having her own disaster. enjoy!
