Dear friends! I know many of you think the Summer was again far too short but, please, don't forget that the Fall has it's charm, too! For me it's the time of 'revival' and inspiration. Let's make the best of this wonderful season!

Guten Tag!

Mervi, es ist schade, dass man die vorherigen Seiten in der Knuipe immer noch nicht nachlesen kann, also muss man oefters am Tag einen Besuch hier machen.

Ich war an zwei, drei Tagen ziemlich "sportlich" spazieren, solange das Wetter noch so gut ist.

Das Otterbaby ist allerliebst und der betrunkene Waschbaer ein Fall fuer die Ausnuechterungszelle - danke Chris und Dumba fuer die herrlichen Geschichten.

I am back in the Library today and have been buying books in the local
Charity Shops which would have cost me a fortune new, and even an
old "Care Bears" boardgame from the 80s.

Gudrun's wonderful photostory from Berlin Zoo shows the contrast between the
young Panda couple (a bit like Prince Harry and his new girlfriend) and Katjuscha
who looks absolutely gorgeous and eisbaerig. She is in the tradition of Die Dietrich
und Die Knef.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - the grocery shopping is done for this week! Hurray!!

Dumba - The breakfast was really good and I had the Betthüpferl - the sweet puppie with a teddy - as my companion. :D

Ralph - I'm sure Uncle Sergej will soon stay as a statue outside the Carlsberg Brewery! :D

Sarsam - Unfortunatel we've had great problems here lately. I've tried to make the gurus fix them but they don't seem to understand what the problems are. I'm running out of patience soon. - I hope you, Lloyd and the gang are doing fine.

Chris - Hardy is the cutest little otter baby I've ever seen! Being an zoo keeper is a demanding job but it's often very rewarding, too. Rescuing sweeties like Hardy must feel wonderful!

Teddybärenmutti - I would be disappointed if the croissants were still here. :D Tosca cookies will be fine to accompany the afternoon Herkules.

In KWM you'll find Gudrun's report from the zoo with interesting information of the pandas - especially Meng Meng. I wish everybody a very good Tuesday!

Guten Morgen allerseits. Es ist immer noch sehr warm.
Dumba - Danke fuer Links. Der arme Beschoffene.

Herkules und Tee ist fertig. Croissants sind verschwunden, aber Tosca Kuchen gibt´s noch.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR BAERGIT!

Knuti-Judi -- Sending you soft hugs!

Ludmila -- Thank you so much for the lovely postcards -- my favorite is still the one with the sweet walrus........:-) Did the cats and Speedy give you a big happy welcome or did they have to punish you for being away? :-))

Mervi -- For a couple of weeks now I have been unable to see anything in the latest thread of the Knuipe beyond the first page.........is it just me or ????

We are having the heat of summer now -- but I am not complaining -- I am so grateful that I do not live in Houston, Florida or Puerto Rico............

Paw waves and wing greetings to All from me, the cat gang and Gandy and Deedee.

Humble fall breakfast for you, ?my? DEARS
for morning Tuesday September 26th, 2017:
http://tinyurl.com/HumbleBreakfast-inFallTime

BAERGIT - For the main photo in your collage I simply made
a search in the net. So, I have to admit I don't know who the
little Husky puppie is! But he/she is cute - Isn't he/she!?
For your own pic I took one of a meeting in my flat which
worked perfectly but 'I made it not to be seen too clear', as I know
you are 'tooo shy' to appear visibly in the net (At that point of my
'creation' I coudn't know at all that the pics of baby-KNUT and the puppie
wouldn't show at all in the net!) ( :( )

GOOD NIGHT TO All/e now!
Have a good first night with happy dreams in your personal new year!

Mervi That was a glorious day for Uncle Sergei
Baergit I remember an episode of Pfarrer Braun
set in Kassel where a ghost was found in the
end to be a raccoon called waschi.

Bärgit - Poor raccoon! I hope he hasn't a bad hangover now!

Ralph - As you may remember Uncle Sergej is a very popular bear among the workers in the Carlsberg Brewery. He was a succesful strike leader when the workers protested against the new rule that they could only drink one beer per day during the working hours. :D

Sorry for the double racoon...
But Mr Server seem to have loved this guy :D

Ralph - Barrels :D
Originally I was thinking of the book Uz by Bruce Chatwin who had come up with that story of Uz smashing all his Meissen china and Bohemian glasses to save it from 'wrong hands'. A good paw is always better than a wrong hand, don't you think?

Baergit I am glad that you have some
good things for your birthday.
A friend of mine and I meet regularly to
drink Staropramen Czech Lager. BN joins
us and his nose is often dipped in the lager.
We like the picture of Uncle Sergei surrounded
by bottles in a brewery.

Mervi - Sisu's card really warmed my heart.

Dumba - And so did little Knuti on your collage.
But who is the little doggie on the left?

Thank you for sending your little Herzensbrecher all the way down to the South!

Chris - Danke!

Mervi - Whatever the story right now you can see U.S. offering his Herzensdame one of the glasses and is helping himself to another one. He said he liked the diamond shine on the vine. Imagine. Him. A glass in his paws, raising it to his lips without breaking it :D
