31 Days of Pandas: Day 9 ~ 101 Bebe Panda-Nation Continues…

On Monday, we left our story just as Mei Xiang and Tian left for a holiday party, instructing Pinky, who was babysitting the small pandas, NOT to open the door to anyone!

Of course, Pinky paid no attention whatsoever…

Uh oh.

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

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

Uh oh! When it’s time to call for Inspector Panda….

Be the Bear!

Support Pandas, Get Cool Stuff!

Just a reminder that the PDXWildlife Auction is still going on, but time is running out!  If you were waiting to bid on some of the panda packages, there is no better time than now!

Here’s the Link!

We’ll see you tomorrow for another episode of Beary Poppins! I mean, I hope you are staying home safely and not traveling this holiday weekend. And I hope you have figured out that you don’t have to cook a turkey and can just eat an entire pie by yourself for dinner!

Tis the Season, right?

Available at PDXWildlife Auction!

Now go bid on something for the PDXWildlife auction!

For today’s Sunday Funday: All Beary Poppins till now!

A member of the Panda Faithful said that she had missed several episodes of Beary Poppins, so I thought the Sunday archive presentation was a great time to get everyone caught up on the story so far. I really have absolutely no idea where this story is going, but at least we can see where it’s been!

Another alert member of the Panda Faithful reported on Saturday that Biscuit took his first steps! It’s just a matter of time before he is happily cubby trotting after Mommee, and then cubby trotting away from her as she tries to steal his apple treats! Also, Monday is his naming day, so we will see what his official name is!

Huzzah!

Now…on to Beary Poppins, the story so far…

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?

Gosh I really hate to leave you on this cliffhanger for the weekend, but…

Just a reminder that while I do post these to Fezbook and Twidder, they are both capricious and irregular in what they show there. So, the best way to be sure you won’t miss a single ‘toon is to check in here at least once a week, and click back through previous postings to make sure you haven’t missed anything!

Well…Here we are…

The day is here. We have pulled democracy back from the brink of disaster. I keep thinking about how I felt on11/9/2016. I was stunned with disbelief. How could this have happened? And yet, from the moment Trump came down his golden escalator, I had an unquiet rumble sounding in my head and my heart.

There is still much work to be done.

But we should take a moment to savor the sudden release many of us are feeling. It’s the feeling you get when you see the car coming into your lane with just enough time to avoid a collision. It’s the feeling you get when you are the last car on the ferry, for the last boat of the night. It’s the feeling you get when a growling dog rushes the fence, and you realize that the fence will hold him, even as you feel the rush of wind and adrenaline.

We have narrowly escaped a future that  writers of dystopian fiction foretell, and a past that historians write about 1930’s Germany and Europe.  Meanwhile we still have a growing pandemic to deal with. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are not magicians. They can not wave a magical wand (sorry Pinky) and poof it away. They believe in science. They will lead with compassion and knowledge. They will listen to the scientists and encourage people to act in their own interest. Maybe without the threat of Trumps rage and instability hanging over them, even red state governors will start acting in the best interest of their constituents.

Is this a good time to plug masks with pandas on them available through Redbubble and Spoonflower?

So be of good cheer! We have vanquished the evil overlord, who would wish to be king. There is still hope for leveling the Senate playing field by winning the two runoff elections in January (Deadline to register to vote is December 7th, in Georgia, so if you live there, please vote!)

Now! Let’s have some PANDAS!!!!

This was then:

day after

Remember the song “The Eve of Destruction”? That’s what today feels like.

This is how we fought the forces of darkness:

Whats a protest without pandas?

Hey, save some cuppycakes for me!

What a lovely day for the 3 pandas to relax at home!

The world swoons….

Guess who’s coming for cuppycakes!!!!

“We are NEVER going to get our security deposit back!!!”

Ruh Roh….

Look who’s here!

And now, for the earthshaking subject of HUGE great importance…COOKIE BALANCING! 

And now…going for the gold!!!

Did I mention I broke the world record in cookie balancing?

There are rules here!

The roar of the crowd, the smell of a freshly baked cookie…

I hereby submit my qualifications and claim the international…no InterGALACTIC Championship title for Cookie Balancing!

Actual balancing cookie!

You Know What Day it Is!

Spring Back! Fall Forward!!!

Fabulous Furry Friday KNOWS that this is one of your favorites!

It seems like there is something very important going on this week…now what was that?

I don’t know about you, but my anxiety is ratcheted up to about an 11. If you haven’t voted yet, the time is now. Unfortunately, with the perverting of Postal imperatives, the safest way to vote is either in person or hand delivering your mail-in ballot. I’m trying really hard to remain hopeful. Some states are reporting that their early voting totals are higher than their total votes in 2016. How many new voters that represents, we won’t know for a while. One thing is sure, there is going to be full employment for election law attorneys.

Since I didn’t have a plan for today’s ‘toons (other than the “Spring Forward, Fall Back” ‘toon) I’m just going to randomly go through ‘toons I published in November for all the years that this collection has been here!

Get ready, get set, GO!!!!

2011: Pandas arrive in Scotland!!!

What could be more scottish than Pandas?

2012: Insider Twinkie Trading

Bob, Bob, Bob…when will you ever learn?

2013: Heh! Mommee plays a trick on Pinky!

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…

2014: Cats and Pandas

No, I don’t think so. Bwahahaha!

2015: Election shenanigans have been going on for a while.

And how did Pinky manage to hack into my computer again?

2016: Seems like such a long time ago, and yet…here we are…

whipped cream

Can I have EXTRA extra whipped cream?

2017: A Halloween Classic!

comics history

Maybe Bubba is having a Halloween SEASON! Did you ever think of THAT, Pinky?

2018: The first appearance of Frank and Mikey!!!

Send in the bears!

Helloooooo bears!

I like bears.

I just had to post the whole story about Frank and Mikey ALLEGEDLY eating Justice Kravenklaw… For another most excellent take of the Kavanaugh hearings, I think this is the best!

And finally, 2019: The Bus is coming! Get ready for some serious underbussing!

Our favorite grizzlies are doing “The Bus”!

Remember to Vote!

Panda on (as best you can)

Beary Poppins Arrives!

OOF!

Beary Poppins has Landed! Mommee Mei is slightly perplexed, because…um…mebbee Pinky forgot to show Mommee the ad they wrote? Mebbee?

Meanwhile, if you get these posts as emails to your very own email address, you may have received Tuesday’s ‘toon cut off on one side. Don’t ask me why that happened, or how to fix it. I know nothing about how all this actually works. (But I’m not “president” so I don’t actually have to know anything!) If this happens again, just click through to see it on the website. I’m pretty sure it will work there.

But enough about all those technical difficulties! Our story continues…

HERE!

Beary Poppins has arrived! Is there any cake? It’s been a long flight!

What will happen next? Who knows?!?! We still have some nonsense to get through next Tuesday (and if you haven’t already, VOTE for crying out loud!)

And if you don’t have enough felty pandas, here are some new additions to go with your high anxiety Zoom Holidays!

Christmas Pandas! $49 each or two for $92

Naming day Pandas $49 each, they could also be Cherub Pandas with wings added, $55

Panda On!

Don’t Forget to Write!

Frank is off on his new adventure, to be the Practically Perfect in Every Way nanny, Beary Poppins, to the Xiang-Tian children! Will Frank be a match for those lovable scamps?

I guess we’ll see!

Don’t forget to write, and send food!

Frank is off on a new adventure!

Hey, did you vote yet? If you voted by mail and did NOT get a sticker, you could print this one:

Print your own “I Voted” sticker!

Meanwhile, Minch McTurtle and the complicit GOP Senate rushed to a vote to confirm a new, young, extremely conservative SCOTUS Justice, and then went on vacation till after the election, with nary a thought to and more COVID 19 relief packages. Vote them all out! They know they are losing so they took a big 💩on the carpet, on their way out the door.

Be the bear!

A Halloween Carol!

Oh my.

Things are happening. The WH seems to have become a COVID 19 hot spot. I don’t wish the serious symptoms that this disease can bring on anyone. BUT….My sympathy has to be tempered by the utter lack of precautions that this “president” has taken. So many lives have been lost because the lack of attention to pandemic response and planning that was left to them. To choose not to take this seriously was a choice this “president” made.

But we have more important things to talk about!

Our Cubby TBD is 6 weeks old! Eyes are starting to open! Cuteness is happening! Extreme cuteness is happening! And could there be some skullduggery taking place between Zoo Atlanta and The Pinksonian Zoo?:

Six: hey!
Sebben: hey yoorself!
Six: I fink our pannacam is off!
Sebben: no! whoo could has done such a dastardly thing!?!?!

Six and Sebben: PINKY!!!!!!!!!

And now, because it is October, a fabulous full length feature ENCORE PRESENTATION OF A HALLOWEEN CAROL!!!!!

Bubba’s first feature role!

you…is…not…da…yawn…boss of…pinky…

Mr Wu makes a very cute ghost, don’t you think?

Hey! who said Wu could poof things?

halloween

One of Pinky’s misdeeds has come back to haunt her… can her campaign survive this?

Hmmm… Pinky still does not seem impressed. Perhaps the ghost of Halloween present will have more influence over her.

Uh oh, the ghost of halloween present just caught up with Pinky…

Was that list in small type, single spaced?

The Spirit of Halloweens yet to come is not a spirit to be messed with, right?

Surely you didn’t think she would totally reform, did you?

Be the bear, everyone
And remember:

Wear a mask
Wash your paws with soap and water (don’t just lick them!)
Stay home if you can
Get a flu shot

Bob T Panda!

 

I’m Sure Mommee Mei Won’t Suspect a Thing!

Uh oh! Pinky tries to pull a fast one!

Will she get away with it?

What do YOU think???

Pinky: first you tell me I CAN’T cubpaign in da zoo, now you won’t let me LEAVE!!!

Be the Bear!
Minch McTurtle is a hypocrite to the 1000th degree!

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!
