Snow in Ranua - green leaves in Berlin

Dear friends! It's Spring now although it doesn't look the same everywhere. We can for example compare photos from Berlin and Ranua and see the big difference. No matter what kind of Spring you're having - it's again Easter! Of course, I have made a little story for this thread.

Good Evening.

Belated Birthday Greetings to Chris, Christine and Gudrun.

I have been having back problems for 3 weeks, so my time at the computer is very limited. I had to skip five days of work last week. Tomorrow I'll return to working half days to start with.

Sunday I threw a 80th birthday party for my mom. All of her family made it and I was lucky that the weather was good, because my house would have been stuffed if it was cold or raining.

Mervi - The NHL playoffs have been exciting so far this year. Much better than the previous years when the game seemed to be slower and bogged down with fights and penalties.

This coming weekend is my 39th Boys' Annual Weekend in Muskoka. I'll be heading up there either Thursday evening or Friday afternoon. Wives, girlfriends(or boyfriends, since one of the guys is gay), kids or outsiders are verboten. Beer, alcohol and red meat are not. I wish that I could extend the verboten list to include cell phones.

I hope that all of you are well and wish you a pleasant week.

Have a Good Knight Alle.

INGE - we had sun the whole day. :)
I visited the nightingales in the evening.
But in the next days cool weather again.

Ja, aber es ist immer ärgerlich und zeitaufwändig.
Zumal ich technisch nicht gerade das Ass bin... ;)

CHRIS - Jau! So muss ich kein schlechtes Gewissen morgen Frueh haben,
wenn ich erst spaet dran denken sollte ;)
Schlaf juut und traeum watt Schoenet!
Uebrigens: Lieber der Computer hat 'nen Total-Absturz als Du selbst! ;)

INGE aus Cph - Oh, just discovered now that also you came in
in the meantime. How nice to meet real people in the middle of the night.
Have also nice dreams and a relaxing sleep aside the hopefully well fed ever-starvings ;)
;) :)

Mervi, we had rain untill the afternoon, then came sun and skies. And the wind is strong and cold.

To-morrow meetings in the Society for protection of cats - unfortunately not in Copenhagen, and from there to a meeting in the Garden Society where I have my little cottage and garden. Wednesday 70-years birthday - my schoolfriend from we started in school 7 years old. On the first day we were placed by the same table, and that continued, so we have known each other for 63 years.

The everstarving are sleeping. And so am I in a few minutes.

Good night from Copenhagen to you all !

Leider hatte ich am frühen Abend einen Totalabsturz des Computers.
Fragt mich nicht, wie ich es wieder hingekriegt habe ???
Wahrscheinlich ist dann doch ein neuer PC fällig.
Solltet ihr also mal ein paar Tage nichts hören,
wisst ihr bescheid. Im Moment läuft wieder
alles einwandfrei - toi, toi, toi. :)

DUMBA - Frühstück schon um Mitternacht ? ;)

Dear friends! I would like to at least shake paws with Juuso! :D

Bärgit, Ludmila - Let's have an Anti-Duster as our Betthüpferl! Cheers!

Ludmila - Tommi isn't a 'kisser' but Makani likes to give welcoming kisses. Usually I try to avoid it and he ends up 'kissing' my glasses :D

Muffin comes in the night to me and presses her wet nose on my nose. It is nice. I think I would like a kiss of Juuso too :)

Hallo Ihr Lieben!

Mervi & TBM - You made my evening with the Juuso story.
Unlike Dumba I wouldn't mind being kissed by a such a gentlegrizzley :D

Ralph - I didn't know that Playmo had polars and an arctic setting!
Do you know they were born almost next to where I live? I usually see the Playmo trucks pass between the factory and the logistic centrer when I'm heading for the woods with Tommi :D

Annemarie-Berta - Wie hat die Arbeit geschmeckt?
Hast du vorher mit deinen Daumen einen Sondervertrag geschlossen, dass sie dich in Ruhe walten lassen?

Well, after the evening walk I had another meeting with the Ivies and they told me to take my hands off their ancient system of curling and climbing up the trees. We were negotiating hard but some 'ivy dust' right into my eyes made me give in - at least for today :D

Let's have an 'Anti-Duster' in our glasses.

BTW - I'm very happy to see that my blowed French South-West was immune to LePen.

Ralph - Congratulations for the new 'toy'! :D - I have no problems either filling my days after my retirement. On the contrary, it seems to me there's no time enough! :D

Ludmila - I hope Minka is speaking to you.

Knuti-Judi - I wish you a good Monday and a good week, too.

Teddybärenmutti - Thank you for the information of Juuso. I'll make a little article for KWM later today.

Lieber fluffiger Engel!

Juuso ist wach. Er wiegt nun 400 Kilos. Als fruehstueck frass er Honig, Birnen und Äpfe.
Währen Winterruhe feierte er sein 18er geburtstag.
Alles Gute liebe Juuso

Hello friends at coffee time!
Your last purchase is lovely.
I fight with the evy lianas too. They grow very fast.
Today we managed to give Minka the anti flea drops. Minka growled.
Ring-tailed lemurs are always cute :)
It is Monday again.
Our hedgehogs eat very well. They woke up too early because it was too warm in March. I hope they will come through the cold time now.
Our cats like to go out despite of the cold weather. Muffin likes to annoy Wasja. She is ready to fight with him. I try to prevent the fights :) In the night Muffin and Ferdi come to me and want to show how nice they are :)
