What week we had! We could almost (almost) ignore the rantings of HWMNBN while we basked in the good feeling glow of the Democratic National Convention. And if that was not enough…
Yes, Pinky, we KNOW today is your birthday.
While we wait until I have a chance to create the introductory ‘toon to welcome our new arrival, we do have one or two (ahem!) more ‘toons to celebrate the birthdays of Pinky and Bubba. Mei Xiang, panda mom extraordinaire, had her fourth surviving cub* on Friday, August 21st at 6:35 PM. Do you think she planned so that these 3 siblings would have their birthdays on three consecutive days?
Happy Birthday Pinky and Bubba! Happy Birth day XT4!!!!
The following group of ‘toons were written more than one and a half years ago. They don’t seem quite so far fetched NOW, do they?
I don’t want to end on this somewhat depressing note…off to look for one more ‘toon about Pinky and Bubba!

- Mei Xiang had a cub that only survived a few hours in 2012, a still born twin to Pinky (Pinky: it was NOT my fault!) and a twin to Bubba who lived 4 days.
