Spring Has Sprung!

Happy first day of Spring, here in the northern hemisphere. Up in the upper left hand corner of the continental US, we are having what we like to call “fake spring”. That is when we have up to a weeklong stretch of days in the mid 60’s and the sun shines and gentle breezes blow, and everybody shrieks when they see how dirty their windows are, and all the things that need to be done in the yard…you get the picture.

2 days later, it will start to rain and temperatures will drop back into the 40’s and 50’s and we will remember those warm, halcyon days fondly and pining away for their return. If we are lucky, they will return just in time for the 4th of July, when we transition into Seattle Summer.

Enjoy it while you can!

I love the Spring Equinox, as the days grow longer every day till we reach the Solstice. We need to take some joy where we find it.

The Jig is Up!

Throne of Pandas continues!

Wouldn’t ya know…Six had a bad idea and Sebben knew a guy who knows a guy! What will those little pandas think of next? Um….better not to ask.

As usual, politics is making my head hurt. It should be more clear than ever that Mittens must not return to power. I just got my voter’s guide for the March primaries and I will be voting for Handsome Joe. He’s not perfect. Nobody is. But I can’t think of another person running who could even possibly get us out of the mess we are in. A world where I would willingly read a book written by Liz Cheney is a weird world, indeed.

Now WHY is it that Pinky shouldn’t be allowed to have missiles?

Pinky Security!

Winning through procrastination!

Taylor Swift won the Superb Owl! Because I am a football genius! We watched the replay of the last quarter (or is it an inning?) and the overtime, and mostly were all yelling “what are they doing? What’s going on? OW! That had to hurt!

Meanwhile, Mittens is going around saying all kinds of crazy sh*t and we are all living in the age of anxiety! As Bikkie says, “It’s all too muchie!

I managed to procrastinate to miss my 2nd ‘toon of the week last week. Will I do better this week? Who knows!

Anyway, Pinky has a new security team!

From here on, if I don’t have a new ‘toon to post, I’ll share something relevant from the archives!

Pinky *Might* Have a Mommee Problem

Perspective is everything, and while some might say that Mei Xiang has a Pinky problem, (not to mention all those other bears hanging around the place), Pinky would say that the problem is Mommee. What is a presidential candidate to do when those around her don’t, can’t or won’t share her vision!

I love Pinky’s extremely innocent look! It should come in handy…um…later.

A Cubpaign takes a Lot of Money!

While we don’t approve of A.I. in general, you can hardly fault Pinky’s creative use as part of her cubpaign fundraising efforts! Well, at least until Mommee finds out about it.

We are watching in real time as Mittens loses his grip on reality. We should petition any force of nature or divine entity you may subscribe in, to keep us safe until Joe Biden is in the White House for a second term. Stay safe, friends, Panda on!

Who will be the next Presydent?

Well, DUH!!!!

Pinky says “Buh Bye, LOSERS!!!!

Pinky’s opponents are dropping like flies! Will Mittens be next? Will today’s New Hampshire Primary change the GQP ticket? Put a panda in the White [Pink] House!

A Look Back at Pinky’s New Year’s Resolutions

I’m trying not to make any formal New Year’s resolutions this year. That said, there are things I would rather not keep doing (scrolling endlessly on social media before getting out of bed) and things I would like to do more (work outside in my yard, eat more healthy food, and not stress myself out)

In the interests of not stressing myself out so much, I do not have a brand new ‘toon for today, as I kind of took the weekend off to read and nap and then before I knew it, it was Monday afternoon and it wasn’t raining and it was kind of warm, so I went outside and now there is no new ‘toon for tomorrow.

But since what I probably would have done was a new ‘toon on the resolutions Pinky’s mommee prepared for her, and since I’ve escalated about as far as I can escalate that joke, I thought I’d share them with you here, going back as far as I can find resolutions for Pinky.

Here we go!

Okay…this first one isn’t an actual Pinky resolution ‘toon, but it’s one of my favorites and I bet it’s one of yours too…

See? I told you it was broken!
Pinky: “rules are for other pandas.”
Bubba: my resolution was just to chew my food more, an’ mebbee not eat so much frosting. Ping: ping!
You would think Pinky would already have improved her behavior by now…
It was either this or a double semi-tractor trailer!

This year I think Pinky is going to resolve to do all she can to get Mittens out of our lives, even if it means she needs to support Joe Biden for president.

(Pinky: as if!!!)

If you are in the mood to see what last year in ‘toons were the ones that stuck out to me as the most emblematic ‘toons of the year, panda hop on over to my Substack page (Nazi-free since 2022!) and see my year in Review posts. The first one is tomorrow!

Thanks to all of you who have hung in here with me, all these years. We are going to need each other more than ever in the year coming up!
