The harvest time is here!

Dear friends! It's August and slowly but surely we're heading for the Fall. However, the colourful August allows us to enjoy the warm weather and sample all the veggies and fruit we can hopefully harvest!

Our friend Fiete has arranged something special for you:

Polar Bearolympics 2016 / Eisbärenolympiade 2016

Mervi - Germany will play against Norway.
We had to many games this summer.
I am a little bit tired of soccer. ;)

Ludmila - you are right, but for me September
belongs to the late summer. October is the
classic autumn month. :)

Ich trinke etwas mit euch - CHEERS!

Ludmila - Our Nalle is very skinny although he eats normally. I guess some cats - just like some people - just are that way. I wish I was one of them! :D

Chris - Now the qualification games for the WC 2018 have began. I try to follow the standings but I'm not going to watch so many games.

Annemarie - A Toodle Doodle Thursday Special is my evening drink today. Cheers! :D

Trinke gern einen O-Saft und schaue dann noch ein wenig TV.

Bis morgen.

MERVI - the game yesterday was boring, I am tired of football. ;)

I am glad the post was fast :)
We drove to the zoo per car. The zoo placed at the hill side. We had to go hill up the most time. :)

I hope to find a home for Fluffy. He is old and he is very skinny, he eats well.

Ludmila - Thank you for presenting a 'new' zoo for us in KWM! Did you have to do a lot of climbing to get to the zoo? - I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Fluffy. It would be so wonderful if he will have a home before the Winter comes!

Ralph - I'm sure Mother Ursula is smiling in her heaven when she sees you enjoying the 'polar bear excursions'! - You're right, Dumba's detailed photos give us a better sightseeing than actually being in Berlin. During the walks I never notice all the fantastic details. And, of course, it's more comfortable do the walking on the couch. :D

Mervi here we have still summer weather but in the early morning the sky looks a bit grey

Dumba deine Berlin-Bilder sind wieder mal herrlich, da ist ja wirklich alles dabei, die vielen goldigen Hunde, sogar einen Bullterrier habe ich gesehen, hatten wir vor vielen Jahren auch. Da kann ich nur wiedergeben was auf einem Bild steht Berlin Du bist wunderbar, dankeschoen fuers Zeigen

Annemarie dein Vancouver Album ist eine wertvolle Erinnerung an eine besondere Reise mit grossartigen Erlebnissen
das Salami Geschaeft sieht gut aus, kein Wunder dass sich Yoghi so ueber die Lieferungen freut

Ludmila the cat boys find always good places in the garden only Mimi comes often in the kitchen and is calling for me also when she is not hungry, she is now 17 years

Dear Alle I wish you a good Thursday, dear greetings

Good morning from a sunny Kidlington. I have already bought various Polar bears in the market and charity shops and had a large coffee and bacon roll for breakfast. I am still saving Purzelbaum's wonderful albums.
The Cotswold bears are as ever really grateful for Annemarie's supplies. The croissants and salamis are being tackled by the cubs and smaller bears but the larger bears have found the Garnellen and Seteufel. Unfortunately Mini-Kati is still sighing over her picture of Victor.
Dumba's fabulous albums are actually better than visiting Berlin as I can do them from the comfort of my couch and even in bed on the Knuphone.
It is now only a fortnight until my trip to Berlin on 16 September and then on 25 September a special trip with Uli and Jochen. I am making up for lost time, but I think Mother Ursula wouldf have approved.

Hello folks at coffee time!
Annemarie
Super, dass Yoghi wieder Salami bekommen hat :)
Mervi
We fed Fluffy at the lunch break. He came to us and purred. I asked a co-worker, who had a cat in the past, to take Fluffy for the autumn and winter inside. We will drive with her tomorrow to Fluffy.
Sarsam
I am glad to see that you read the articles at KWM. I hope you will have more time soon :)
Yesterday Minka waited for me in the bed. She purred and stayed next to me. Later in the night Muffin came to me too :)
Filomena
How are you doing?

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - September is here! Let's hope the Fall will be an inspiring season for us all!

Chris - It may sound 'odd' but I'm satisfied with the result 2-0! :

Dumba - I'm going to take the August walk with you later today. Thank you for the kind invitation! :D

Inge - I guess you're also excited about the expected birth of an okapi baby any day - or maybe night - now! I'm checking the webcam many times a day.

Ludmila - It's the early bird that prepares the morning coffee!

Annemarie - The salami delivery from Budapest was the perfect start of this month! Yoghi is really generous sharing his yammies with us. Of course, even Giovanna is happy about the treats. :D - I had a good laugh at Ludwig and Yoghi wondering the meaning of 'Rabat' but again they learnt something new. - My lunch choise today is the 'knuspriges Sandwiches vom Seeteufel mit Spinat und Kuerbiscreme'. Namnamnam!!!

I hope you've all had a good start of this day!

Horrido!

Herkules ist dank Ludmila schon fertig gewesen. Ich habe nur noch schnell Samowar-Tee zubereitet. Ein grosser Berg Croissants befindet sich auf dem Tisch no. 5 fuer den ersten Hunger. Auch haben Yoghi, Ludwig und ich den Food Safe prall gefuellt - nach einer intensiven QC der beiden Herren selbstverstaendlich.

Gestern kam puenktlich zum baldigen Neuer-Monats-Beginn Yoghis Salami-Paket aus Budapest von seinen guten Freunden vom dortigen Fleisch/Gemuese-Grossmarkt. Ach, das war wie Neujahr und Weihnachten zusammen. Yoghi war wieder wahnsinnig grosszuegig und hat uns einige der Mammut-Salamis in die Knuipe-Speisenkammer gelegt. Den Rest nahm er heute mit nach Muenchen, um alles im Geheimversteck in seinem Stall zu verstecken. Seine Angebetete Giovanna freut sich immer sehr, wenn ihr Yoghi von seinem riesigen Vorrat ab und an eine Salami 'springen' laesst. Heute meinte Yoghi zu Ludwig und mir: 'Mit Speck faengt man Maeuse' und laechelte dabei verschmitzt. :)

https://flic.kr/p/dpFpPs = Stand von Yoghis Freunden vom Grossmarkt in Budapest.

(Hier hatte Yoghi einst fuer die ungarischen Freunde einen Tag lang auf dem Markt in Budapest sehr wirksam Werbung fuer ihre Salami gemacht. Seitdem floriert das Geschaeft bombastisch - bis heute. Aus Dankbarkeit bekommt er jeden Monat 'sein' Salami-Care-Paket' - lebenslang.)

Inhalt unseres Food Safes fuer den heutigen Brunch:

Ofenfrische Scones serviert mit noch warmer Clotted Cream und Aprikosenmarmelade
(das ist bestimmt auch was fuer Ralphs Cotswold Bears!!),
knuspriges Sandwiches vom Seeteufel mit Spinat und Kuerbiscreme,
Riesengarnelen in Honig-Senf-Marinade mit Kartoffel-Wasabi-Pueree und gefuellten Cocktailtomaten,
Putencurry mit Basmatireis und Mandel-Brokkoli,
im Salzmantel gegarter Wolfsbarsch mit Rosmarinkartoffeln und Tomaten-Salsa,
Zuercher Geschnetzeltes mit Kartoffelpuffer und Wildkraeuter-Salat,
Marillenkompott mit Rosinenbrot und Ricottacreme,
Nuss-Ecken.

Frage fuer den Oeffnungscode zum Food-Safe-Zugang: Wie heisst die Hauptstadt von Marroko?
A) Rabat/Code 7 oder B) Agadir/Code 70

Bemerkung: Yoghi und Ludwig staunten ueber das Wort Rabat, sie dachten dabei wohl an 'Rabatt'. Wir lachten alle miteinander und Yoghi meinte, was nur ein Buchstabe mehr so ausmacht. Schlau ist er, unser Yoghi-Baer! :)

Das KBT wuenscht allen einen prima Donnerstag.

Good night from Copenhagen. To-day my "patient" celebrated birthday. It was a nice day and the weather was fine - that means, that it was not raining.
Lots of Greetings from here.
