You can’t have Zooms without Zoo!

Yes, we are all chomping at the bit to get back to real life with real people (or maybe not! Some of us have realized that not interacting in person is not all bad!) But why should people have all the Zooms? A Czech zoo decided to give it’s inhabitants a treat. And what penguin wouldn’t want to get a little culture?

I hope the penguins remembered to take all their fish with them!

Zoom you later!

Technology hates me

Still finding work arounds for all my technical difficulties. I just updated my operating system and now my scanner doesn’t want to work. Uh oh. I am getting the “offline” notice again, which is always encouraging. (not)

Anyway, fortunately I have this week and next week’s ‘toons scanned so I have a bit of time to figure this out!

Here’s today’s ‘toon!

The idiocy of the GOP never ceases to amaze me.

Meanwhile, I am reading about Minch McTurtle’s feud with corporations. I guess it’s okay to take money from them, as long as they don’t contradict you? IDK.

Till later,
Call the Panda Kindergarten tech team!

Who are YOU calling a fool, April?

While it is a relief to have someone I can call “President” unironically, I still am traumatized enough by my memories of the former guy that every time I hear a phrase that includes “The White House” or “POTUS” I have a momentary flood of dread until I remember that Joe Biden is President and that he is doing what needs to be done to get this country back on track.

That all is not well, that Asian Americans are being targeted and attacked, that a 17 year old girl had the courage and foresight to film a police attack on an unarmed man, I still can’t rest easily.

But we have survived another month! More people are getting vaccinated and I will hold onto the hope that gives me. I really hope I can visit Bikkie and his parents this fall. That is just one of my hopes.

Meanwhile, Bob and Mehitabel try to figure out what’s real and what’s an April Fools Joke!

Poor Bob! What do you do when every thing that’s true seems like a prank?

Can we skip the April Showers and go straight to the flowers?

Don’t You Want Somebody to Hug…

It’s been a long year, hasn’t it? Isolated in our pandemic quarantine quarters, zooming with friends or for work or for school. Only now, as vaccines are happening, are (some) people coming cautiously out of their dens…

Except of course for the morons who just can’t stay out of crowded bars and other places, and have been spreading viruses around like penny candy at a parade…

Meanwhile, some enterprising farms have a solution for that profound feeling of isolation we are all feeling…

Personally, I think the cows should get at least SOME of the money!

Okay…so I’m starting to get used to this new editing format, but I don’t like it yet.

You Know What Today Is!

Yes, it’s the beginning of Daylight Savings Time, here in most of the USA, and you know what THAT means!

Yes, it’s time for THIS ‘toon!

Sunday Funday KNOWS that this is one of your favorites!

I crack me up!

There are more ‘toons to come, but first…Last week the world of children’s literature lost one of it’s greatest practitioners, Norton Juster.

If you don’t recognize the name, run, don’t walk to your favorite bookstore, and buy your very own copy of The Phantom Tollbooth. TPT is one of those books. Published in 1961, I read it for the first time a few years after that. For years afterward, I could remember little snippets, but could never quite remember the title, or when I had read it, but the magic of this book never quite let go. When I found it again, it was as if I had been shown the entrance to a magical place, not unlike tasing through the tollbooth itself.

There are so many great books being written for children and teens right now. But I re-read The Phantom Tollbooth every year or so, because it never fails to reveal something new, that I really need to know. I hope you already love this book, but if you don’t know it, what are you waiting for?

And now, more pandas! (Expect the Panda Kindergarten!)

Well *bleep* and take your *bleep* and stick it *bleep*!!!!

Twinkies 2.0

Twinkies 2.0 put on a show!

I have extra frosting!

Today, you are a bear.

…if I were a panda, yadda dah dah da- da- da- AAARGH! I can’t stop!!!!!

After all, the playings the thing….

The best thing that could happen today would be this:

The worst thing that could happen today would be an encore presentation of an armed insurrection at the Capitol, so maybe let’s do this instead:

Watching the Panda Cam is BEARY relaxing!!!!

Is there anything more fun than watching Bike play wit Mommee or even just roll around in the den by himself?

Don’t forget! all felty orders during the month of March (known by millions as the Panda Season of Love and Panda Scout cookie month!) get a free roll of Panda Season of Love Washi tape! Huzzah!

Nixon’s Ghost STILL Won’t Go Away!

I promise there will be more cute panda ‘toons, coming soon. As the ghost of the former guy (this seems to be how he is referred to on Twidder, so as not to give any searchable items) just won’t go away, we have a few last things to get out of our system!  At least ZooNooZ did not cover #FascistFest®️! No one would volunteer to go to it, so you’ll have to find info on that elsewhere.

Meanwhile, Bob continues to be surprised…

Nixon’s ghost just won’t go away!

Don’t forget! For the month of March (while we are in the Panda Season of Love) every felty order will receive a free roll of Panda Season of Love Washi tape! Decorating fun!

We are in The Panda Season of LOOOOOVE!

It’s that time of year again when a panda’s thoughts turn too…um…what was it they turn to?

Oh yeah! Romance! It’s the Panda Season of Love!

Since it’s the Panda Season of Love, all felty panda orders in the month of March will have a bonus of a roll of Panda Season of Love Washi tape!

Tape is about 1 1/8″ wide and rolls are about 10 YDs long. Shows brighter here than it is.

I hope people haven’t had enough of silly love songs!

I just love the cub reporter.

Love in the Time of Mittens (which, quite frankly, is a lot like the time of cholera)

The Scottish pandas have had a few disappointments…

A bear by any other name, would still smell pretty funky.

A panda by any other name, would smell…well, they would just smell…

Can we agree that Minch McTurtle is a jerk?

So many dolts, so little time! It is hard to imagine how the junior senator from Texas thought it was in ANY way appropriate to go jetting off to Cancun while most of his state was
A) freezing
B) without electricity or natural gas
C) without water, drinkable or otherwise.

His pathetic excuse of an apology tour on right wing propaganda “news” shows, demonstrates just how completely clueless he is. And this on the heels of his aiding and abetting The Big Lie, which contributed to Mittens attempt at armed insurrection. I’m sure there will have to be a ‘toon about this, but meanwhile…

Minch McTurtle attempts to have it both ways…

Two headed, two faced…why is he still here?

Sigh…

I’m glad most of my Texas friends have checked in to let me know there are okay. Please feel free to chime in in the comments. I know that there are more of you out there in Pandyland.

NOOZFLASH!!! Frank says this was definitely NOT HIM!!!!

I had an idea, but I left it somewhere else!

This happens to me all the time. I’ll be doing something or reading stuff on Twidder or Fezbook, and I’ll get a great idea for Sunday’s encore presentation of ‘toons. Then I get on the computer and I realize I’ve completely forgotten my very good, perfect, incredibly brilliant idea for Sunday’s post.

I am a bear of very little brain…

Oh! I just remembered one thing (the bear of little brain having jogged my memory): There have been new reports and camera sightings of the albino panda that has been seen in China! We did a ‘toon about him/her when they were first seen on camera in 2019.

I’m not a snowflake. You are a snowflake!

Which leads me to thinking about the injustice of wildlife cameras spying on pandas!

The secret lives of the wild panda!

And not only wild pandas are being spied on…

What’s that blinking red light over there?

I has no sekrets!!!!

And then the ‘toon about Snowflake also made me think of…

The irony of Mehitabel criticizing Pooh Bear for his wardrobe, does not escape me.

I’m not sure Mehitabel has anything to talk about.

Fortunately, all is quiet at the panda house! Have a relaxing (Mittens free) Sunday!

Mei and Tian2 contemplate the joys of the not very empty nest. (Grizzly bears take up a lot of room!)
