I’m sure everyone one has a favorite movie, that they have found relevant quotes for many situations in life. I have several, including Casablanca and The Wizard of Oz, but the one that has the most useful quotes in MANY situations for me, is The Big Liebowski. I didn’t see this movie when it originally came out, but since discovering it, I watch it regularly (It’s one of a handful of movies I own discs of) and Mr. Badger and I quote it almost constantly.
Last week when Rachel Maddow was interviewing Live Parnas, I kept yelling at my iPand, “New s**t has come to light!!!!!” And wouldn’t ya know, when I was listening to The Daily Beans today, they played the audio clip from the movie of Jeff Bridges (aka the Dude) saying that very line! So there! It IS the perfect line for these perilous times!

Two notes on things other than the year in review posts:
First, I was alerted to an excellent newsletter by Heather Cox Richardson, writing about the legal and political issues of the day, in a very readable, clear manner. (In other words, if I can understand what the hell she’s talking about, pretty much anyone can.) I highly recommend subscribing to her news letter. If nothing else, maybe it will keep me out of the Twidder trenches so I can get some work done. We’re in for a wild ride, panda fans! Here’s to hoping we all survive it!
Second, my Tiny Panda Kickstarter is going swimmingly! It ends this Friday at 5 PM PST, so if you wee thinking about getting a tiny panda (or two) of your own, this is the week. There are still several panda rewards available, and should you want more than one there is both a two panda reward, or you can add another panda to the reward selected. Just message me here via the Contact Us form, or the Kickstarter message system.
See ya next week with some new ‘toons and the wrap up of our Hold Me Closer Tiny Panda Kiscktarter!

Geez…new s**t has come to light!!! Can you believe all the information that is hitting the ether? Thank goodness I have so many little pandas to felt! (you are not too late! Check it out HERE!)

New designs coming to Redbubble:
Well, we really dodged a terrible disaster! Yesterday, Friday the 13th came on a MONDAY!!!!! Um…I never actually admitted that my sense of humor has ever risen beyond that of a 7th grader, so, ya know…whatebber!
Meanwhile, my tiny panda Kickstarter has been chugging right along! I started making needle felted pandas because I needed a hobby that was kind of stress reducing. So what did I do? I turned it into a major production. I guess that’s just the kind of bear I am! Fortunately, I love repetitive tasks, and if needle felting is anything, it has a lot of repetition. Also fortunately, I can imagine I am stabbing certain people who must not be named right through the heart! Fun for the whole family!
Panda on ebbryone!

Before we dive in to our Year in Review encore presentation, can I just say OH MY FRIGGING GOD!!!! The tiny panda (Hold me closer tiny panda) Kickstarter reached its goal amount 13 minutes after launching. I am astounded with gratitude for this response. It also was listed as a Kickstarter Project We Love most of the day on Friday. Needless (or needle-less) to say, I have a lot of felting to do over the coming months. If you are afraid you missed your favorite panda, check back at the project, because I added some more reward categories!
Thank you again, from deep within my heart. I can’t wait to get these pandas to you! (After I make them of course!) This has the added benefit of getting to visit the Abundant Earth Fiber store again, which may now be called my happy place!
Well, that’s it for today’s wrap up! See ya real soon!

Today is the day! At approximately 10 AM today I’ll be launching the felty panda (Hold me closer tiny Panda) over on Kickstarter today! While you’re waiting, should I remind you why we all need emotional support pandas?
See ya soon!
Or should I say” wake me when all this is over?”
Be da Bear!

Well, except for me, unless that means I’m not anybody! One of my favorite podcasts is Pod Save America, which bills itself as “a political podcast for people who aren’t ready to give up or go insane”. Another is The Daily Beans, (News with Swearing) by the women who brought us Mueller She Wrote. Between these podcasts, and listening to the podcast version of Rachel Maddow, I am able to stay informed and outraged, even without a television!
BTW, it is a mere two days before I unleash my felty panda Kickstarter on the world! You can get a preview here, and sign up for launch time notification! Huzzah!
Panda on everyone

I did warn you I was going to do this. It will be instructive (not to mention profoundly depressing) to look back both here in panda satire, as well as in the real world (or the reality world…whatebber!) and see where we started 2019!
The Government shutdown, orchestrated by HWMNBN started in December, and still continued into February, heedless of putting 100’s of 1,000’s of people out of work. Or was it millions?
March brought us the presidential candidacy floating of yet another unqualified billionaire, this time a purveyor of double-half-caff-frappacino-with-skim-whippy-cream-and-sprinkles, claiming that the obvious disdain for his proposed presidential run, was a sure sign that the people wanted him to do it. Fortunately, he fizzled out (bad back, my behind!) and he has receded to the obscurity he deserves.

Oh my! A new Year is upon us. I think I saw somewhere that this year is the Chinese Year of the Rat. I need to double check this, because there could be a lot of rats deserting the sinking ship of the You Know Who (p)residency!
But meanwhile, let’s join Bob and Mehitabel as we welcome in the new year!
Buckle up, buttercup!
