Britta-Gudrun - The new enclosure is bigger and greener. However, the water may be too deep for Imaq for the time being. I don't understand why there isn't a mulch bed or something like that in the old enclosure. It would make it a little more pleasant for Lynn and her daughter. The giant panda business is making me really angry - it's the same story everywhere. I have nothing against pandas but it's not OK that the zoos build expensive enclosures for them and almost ignore other animals needing better living conditions!

Knuti-Judi - Seeing Imaq for the first time was, of course, wonderful - even though the awful enclosure made me have mixed feelings.

Hallo am Nachmittag!

Mervi, ganz so entspannend war das Ergebnis der Augen-Untersuchung nicht, aber wenn die Beeintraechtigung nicht schlimmer wird, kann ich damit leben.

Gibt es im Kopenhagener Zoo ein groesseres Gehege in das Lynn mit ihrem Baby umziehen kann? Der Hype um die Pandas schraenkt die Gestaltung und Groesse der anderen Tiergehege ein, das ist nicht okay.

Hallo Patricia, wie geht es dir? Bist du schon umgezogen? Sende bitte, bitte mal ein kleines Lebenszeichen!

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - it's getting quite empty here these days ....

Britta-Gudrun - Sometimes our teams win, sometimes they loose! :D - I hope everything's OK with your eyes!

I have now published our report from Copenhagen - IMAQ STOLE OUR HEARTS in KWM. Well, frankly I don't know why I bother to publish anything because there seems to be very little interest ....

I wish everybody a happy Hump Day!

Guten Morgen!

Mervi, ich hoffe, du bist wegen des verlorenen Eishockeyspiels der finnischen Mannschaft nicht allzu traurig. Vielleicht troestet dich der Besuch beim Eisbaerchen in Kopenhagen ein bisschen.

Ich habe heute wieder einen Augenarzttermin - man goennt sich ja sonst nichts.

Annemarie, ich wuensche dir schoene Tage in Berlin!

Ralph - You'll meet a very self confident Imaq in Copenhagen. The viking princess knows she'll be a viking queen one day! :D

It has been a warm day here in Oxford and I have been with my friend for some Staropramen beers. BN came too.
I have been putting together a short report on Gelsenkirchen for Knutis Weekly, which I will send Mertvi on Thursday.
The Berlin pictures were not so good, and I have decided that with so many good reports, I will leave the Berlin report. I am off to Denmark on 4 June, so am hoping to get some clues from Mervi before I go, as with any luck I will have the first day in Copenhagen.

Yeo - I'm quite OK - I only have the 'usual' problems with my back and hip. I hope there will be more hammock days for you! :D

Chris - Congratulations! Draisaitl was really good today! Did you know that Toni Söderholm is a Finn? :D

MERVI - the Germans played well against Finnland.
This was a very successfull "Vorrunde". We only
lost the games against USA and Canada. :)
Fünf Siege in der Vorrunde sind sehr gut.

Oh dear Mervi...I wish you a speedy recovery!
Here in Berlin was the weather sunny and warm.
It was my first hammock-day. 😀😎

I wish you all a pleasant evening!

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - what luck we visited Copenhagen yesterday! Today the weather is hot and humid - not my cup of tea at all!

Ralph - I saw Molly's first photos of Anori and Luka in Wuppertal. I'm sure she's enjoying her visit although it's raining there today.

Yeo - Yesterday my legs and back reminded me, too, that I'm not 20 anymore - maybe 25 ..... ? :D - Enjoy your free day without too much household work!

Britta-Gudrun - It's much more pleasant to wake up to the birds' singing than to the noise made by gardeners but I'm sure you'll be glad when the work is done! :D I wish you a 'silent' day! :D

In KWM you can read Ralph's final report from Doncaster. This time about Victor and even some other animals living in this park.

I wish you all a pleasant Tuesday! Today I'll try to choose photos to our Copenhagen report and even find inspiration to write something. But first it's time for icehockey. Finland and Germany will meet already at noon! :D

Guten Morgen!

Heute weckten mich laute Motorengeraeusche aus dem Garten.
Der Landschaftsgaertner schneidet mit grossem Laerm 2x im Jahr meine 50m lange
Hecke und hatte mal wieder vergessen, mir wenigstens einen Tag vorher Bescheid zu sagen. Jetzt faengt es auch noch an zu regnen, da tun mir die Maenner auch etwas leid, aber jetzt haben sie wenigstens ihren gewohnten frischen Kaffee.

Yeo, danke fuer den Herkules und ruhe dich noch etwas aus. Ja, jenseits der 60 lassen die Kraefte leider nach - fuer fast alles!

Good morning dear all!

Breakfast and Herkules are ready. Enjoy your meal!

Heute habe ich noch frei, aber bis auf ein wenig Hausarbeit möchte ich nichts machen. Ich merke doch, dass ich eben keine 20 mehr bin. Oder anders: ich bin schon dreimal 20. 😉😀

@ Britta-Gudrun
Ich wünsche dir gute Besserung und wieder mehr Luft.

@ Mervi
I wish you and Vesa a pleasant time in Kopenhagen!

I wish you all a pleasant Tuesday! 🍹🍷🥂🍾

Yeo - You've been quite busy on your free day! Hopefully the afternoon was time for relaxation!

Knuti-Judi - I just heard it's been snowing in California!

Dave - The game should be a piece of cake for Canada but on the other hand Denmark might surprise. They have no chance to advance to the play-offs so they can play quite relaxed.

Chris - No, we didn't meet Inge. We only decided last evening that we would try to make the trip today - depending on how we felt and how the weather was.

Britta-Gudrun - It took us at least two months before we could visit the polar bears in Copenhagen. I feel the walking and the travelling in my bones and my muscles but it was definitely worth it!! I don't tell anything more because, naturally, there will a report later on.

Guten Abend!

Mervi, ich hatte mir schon etwas Sorgen gemacht, weil du als Chefin heute hier lange
nicht zu lesen warst. Jetzt ist alles klar und ruhe dich erst einmal gut aus!
Ich konnte leider immer noch nicht IVO im Zoo besuchen, weil die Luft schon lange etwas knapp ist - hoffentlich ist der Grund nur von den Pollen verursacht....

Nach zwei schönen sonnigen Tagen
regnet es schon wieder - irgendwie
kommt der Mai dies Jahr nicht so
richtig in die Gänge.
MERVI - how nice, that you could
visit the bears in Copenhagen.
Have you met Inge ?

Good Morning.

Today is a holiday for Canada. I will spend the day relaxing around the house It is clouding over and the rain is supposed to begin early afternoon. Last night I watched "To Kill A Mockingbird" on Turner Classic Movie channel followed by "Blue Hawaii" on video.

Mervi - I know what you mean about the travelling aches.

Now I'll get out for a walk and then maybe do a little cleanup on my motorcycle.

There is a Canada/Denmark hockey game on this afternoon so I might watch some of that.

Have a good Monday.

Hello folks! Today we finally made it! We visited Copenhagen! I'll tell you more about it later but now my hips, my knees, my legs and my back are telling me 'slow down'! :D

I wish you all a pleasant Monday and a good new week!

Some of you have already found the latest report from Novosibirsk in KWM - GERDA TRIES TO MAKE HER KIDS JUMP INTO THE WATER.
