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?
I wasn’t referring to my tardiness with this ‘toon, but I guess that applies too. What with all the excitement about Frank and Mikey’s family trip, I bet you thought I forgot that BeBe Maurice was coming to visit the DC pandas, and also that Mei Xiang’s sister Lun Lun foisted off the twins, Six & Sebben, on her.
Is that the doorbell I hear?
Whoever could it be? Fun art note, in my rough draft, I just had the doorbell ringing once, but then I thought, how would Mei know that it was Six & Sebben? I think the solution was obvious.
I’m fairly sure that the Panda Kindergarten must be responsible for the difficulties I’ve been having with the Pandashpere. I am now setting this up in what WP calls the Block Editor. Things appear and disappear randomly, as if a certain small panda was using her magical wand to foul things up.
But when I try to use the “classic editor” which has helped me lo these many years to bring you all the panda satire you need and want, it does other strange things like not publish scheduled posts or stop working while I’m in the middle of composing these wise pontifications…um…I mean incoherent blatherings.
Update on my friend in Pittsburgh: I finally got in touch with a mutual friend, and learned that his wife was not present during the shooting. He is still in critical condition, but they are expecting him to recover. It will be a long, hard recovery, but there is hope. Thanks for everyone’s concern.
We’re painting the roses a really, really dark shade of PINK!!!!
Time to go off to find Mr. Bun!
We’ll be taking another station break from Pinky In Wonderland, because we have some breaking stories, but have no fear! Pinky in Wonderland will return (as soon as …um…I finish reading the source material!)
And a very happy birthday to our beloved Boo Boo!
Mommee pandas have laser vision. Don’t even think you can hide, Bubba.
So, I try to work at least several weeks ahead on my ‘toons (doesn’t always happen, but right now I am in good shape for keeping the pandas running on schedule.) At least I am when I remember to post them. (Friday was a LIDDLE late, but who’s counting?) So let me say right now that I wrote today’s ‘toon several weeks ago and then I heard this story on NPR this morning.
I think this subject warrants further panda satire scrutiny, as does the “commemorative pin for bogus event”idea that our Embarrassment in Chief dreamed up to add money to his coffers. How many people think the sales of those pins will go to decrease the national deficit? Uh Huh. Me neither.
