Day 14 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Whew! We survived Friday the 13th (not to mention the marathon hearing in the House Judiciary chambers.) To be honest, I did not watch or listen to that hearing. My capacity to listen to the republican naysayers yelling about how this was all totally unfair and besides, nobody can impeach the “president” except for the “president”!!! Otherwise it is a COUP!!!!

Yeah, um…no.

So, I’m getting ready to watch the entire House vote on impeachment, and to take to the streets the night before! Don’t forget to call or email your Rep in Congress and tell them what you think, whether you are for or against impeachment. (Not that anyone reading THIS blog is against it, but hey, I’m willing to listen to calm, well reasoned arguments *)

*provided you have actually read the Constitution and what it has to say about impeachment and the respective powers of the executive and legislative branches of government,

Meanwhile, here are some pandas to lift your spirits while we wait…

sweet!

Schmoop!

You left the panda kindergarten alone with my house?

Buy Stuff with Pandas!

It’s Halloweenie!

It looks like we are getting a treat today, although, I’m sure that 45 and his band of like minded GOP goons have more than a few tricks up their sleeves. I’m pretty sure that the vote on the next phase of the Impeachment inquiry won’t make them happy, and they will commence to activate more delaying tactics and cries of “UNFAIR!”

The phrase “be careful what you wish for” springs to mind!

I can’t believe Bob’s costume didn’t fool anyone!

Be the Bear!

You want me to eat WHAT????

Frank and Mikey, the most popular grizzly bears on the internet are back again! I know you will be happy to hear that they have a new show coming up in just a few weeks, especially since there is absolutely nothing going on in the news these days…hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Ahem…Hey, did you know that the Constitution is a big phony? That’s what HWMNBN has said (“people are saying”) and if people are saying it, it must be true, right? [insert eye roll emoji here] What’s that sound? Why it’s the sound of my head as it hits repeatedly on the desk, that’s what it is.

But let’s see what Frank and Mikey are up to now….

Don’t judge me…ha ha! get it?

Be the Bear!

Will You Please Put That Phone Down?

We’ve all been there. You’re having a perfectly nice dinner with friends, someone brings up an old movie, a song, someone asks who the director or co-star was, and before you know it, everyone has pulled out their phone and is Googling the answer.

Sigh…

Little did we know that not only does it annoy (some of) us, it pisses off your dog, too.

Cats, on the other hand, weren’t paying attention to you anyway.

Thanks to all who responded to my Shameless Self Promotion! I’ll be announcing a few more as the shopping season continues. Currently, there are still 2 lithographs of Yun Zi available! Just send me a message via the Contact Us page!

Yun Zi; 2 available, framed or unframed.

Zhennie’s Wild Adventure: the Finale

Zhennie’s wild adventure may be coming to an end, but only time will tell if a little cuppycake is in the oven, so to speak! Stay tuned to whatever real panda network you watch, to see if there are announcements of a little half wild bundle of joy! Of course, since her dad Gao Gao is also wild, this would make any resulting cubs…um…well, I don’t do math, so someone else will have to figure this out.

Math is not my friend!

But let’s see how Miss Zhennie’s adventure ends!

All’s well that ends well!

Be sure to tune in next week (not to mention this Fabulous Furry Friday) because now that it’s August, you know who has a birthday coming up! (Note from Bubba: akshually it is TWO birfdays coming up!)

See you then!

Don’t forget to tune in on Sunday to see more of Zhennie’s walk on the wild side!!!

It is the birthday season of Bebe Maurice!

We are taking a short break from Pinky in Wonderland (don’t worry! She will be back) to share some ‘toons about OTHER pandas (Pinky: what? there are OTHER pandas? dis can’t be right! plus dere is dat “share” word again! dis will not stand!!!!!!) It is time to celebrate the first birthday of France’s first baby panda, Bebe Maurice! people are saying, “Bebe Maurice needs an outfit! He needs a raison detre’! Or a raisin cookie! Whatebber!”

Here he is, in a three part special presentation!

Of COURSE he would be an artist! But what are the secrets of his maman?

Happy Bearday, Bebe Maurice!

A note about buying my books on Amazon: I was reading a post on the Digital Reader, one of my favorite website/blogs for what’s what in the publishing and tech industries, and Nate wrote an article about used books that are sold by third party sellers via the Amazon website.  For those who are looking for a bargain, buying used books is a great way to add to your TBR pile without breaking the bank. The interesting thing was that some used books were selling for HUGE prices, way beyond the cover price of the book!

So, of course I had to go look…

I don’t make any money when a third party seller sells my book as used. If it is a lesser price, and you trust the seller (Like a friends of the library sale) I say go for it. But I’ve seen used books for sale (mine, I’m talking about) for higher than the cover price of a new book. This is nuts, in my opinion. There was one listed at over $500 (seriously nuts!) If you want to pay that much for one of my books, contact me and I will sell you an extremely overpriced book! (Just kidding. I think)

If you want to support me, buy a new book directly Amazon, so I get paid. I wish they were in independent bookstores so you could support them, but they are not. It would cost me more in time and money to get them there, as an independent publisher, than I would make from them. Hopefully, this will change when my graphic novel and picture books get picked up and published. Pseudo thumbs crossed!

If you want to buy a set of my 8 books, signed, directly from me, we can do that too. And you can always support my work via my Pandreon page! Pandas are standing by!

And in case you didn’t know, it is time for the Tour de France! Just in time for Bebe Maurice’s Bearday! Huzzah!

Didn’t we tell you not to do this?

Viva le Panda!

Pinky in Wonderland Episode 9

After today’s episode, we are going to take a little break from our story (don’t worry! it will be back!) as I have some very impatient pandas who are saying, “but what about US??? Aren’t WEE as important as Pinky?”

I value my life too much to answer that question.

But on with the show. I think we all need to take a deep breath and process what revelations were revealed this week, check our voter registration, and remember what’s important.

Pinky. Pinky is important.

What could be behind that door? Stay tuned, panda fans!

In addition to the fall of western civilization as we have known it, I received news that a dear friend has passed away this week. I met her almost 20 years ago, not long after I started spending time with my friend Mr. Badger.  I hate that this gentle soul is no longer on this earth to remind me of what is important. She’d started having trouble keeping her balance, and soon her mind started to wander off to places we could not follow. I don’t know what comes after death, but I will continue to hope it is something like this:

As you know, pandas are big fans of Shakespeare.

The Pandas Debut in Calgary

Yes, Toronto’s loss is Calgary’s gain! The Pandas have packed their toys, driven the U-Haul across the prairies to the north and arrived in the fair city of Calgary! In honor of the debut of ERShun, Da Mao and the kids, Jia Pan Pan and Jia Yue Yue, I thought I’d rerun some of the ‘toons they starred in!

Let’s start at the beginning…

The beginning of Pinky’s campaign to get the Toronto Twins to endorse her presidential campaign, that is!

Bubba: but why should I be in trubble?

I’ll talk! I’ll talk!

Pinky and the Twinkies, eh?

“If Pinky is grounded, can I have her dessert?”

uh oh…

Um…I think Pinky has Daddee wrapped around her fuzzy little paw. Just saying.

Stay tuned next Friday for more stories of the Canadian panda twins (close personal friends of Unka Justin!)

Lunch on the Limpopo part 1

Well, wasn’t that a fun little tale, of KittySue and the Three Pandas? And for those of you who were wondering if maybe you missed an episode between episode 12 and episode unlucky 13 (aka the finale), well, you didn’t. We were employing the time honored dramatic tactic of only implying that violence was going to take place. (In my house, this is usually accomplished by putting a blanket over my head and asking Mr. Badger to tell me when the scary part is over.) But now, we turn to a real life drama that took place in Africa, on the banks of the Limpopo River.

We call this little segment, Lunch on the Limpopo

Limpopo

What goes around, comes around.

Anything to distract us from the fall of civilization as we know knew it.

Panda on!
