What an unusual Spring this is!

Dear friends! In the previous thread I was wondering what the Spring would be like this year. Now we know it's most 'odd' due to the covid-19 virus. The world isn't the same it was only a few weeks ago. I hope we will all stay in good health and keep an optimistic mind. Better times will come - sooner or later!

Mervi, ja, ab und zu tut ein Ausflug neben den normalen Versorgungseinkaeufen richtig gut und die Seeluft enthaelt ganz viele gesunde Aerosole, also nicht die schlechten von Corona.
Madame Esther hat heute noch eine kleine Zugabe gemacht. Ich hoffe, sie hat sich damit nicht schon uebernommen.

Ralph, ja, man wird sehr bescheiden. Und wenn du dir den Flugstress vor Augen fuehrst, dann faellt der Verzicht nicht gar so schwer.

Chris, viel Freude mit deinem Besuch und einen schoenen Abend in die kleine Runde!

Patricia, wo bist du?

After some hot days we have the first rain since weeks.
In the moment I have not much time to write, because
we have visitors from Berlin here.

I wish everybody a nice weekend !

I was out and about this morning even though the weather was cold and grey.
The pictures from Copenhagen took me back to my visits last year. In some ways I am getting used to visiting Zoos online. I had forgotten how tiring travel was but thinking back on how long it took. The worst parts were the flights out and back. Although they usually worked okay, they were always stressful.
Flying is easily my least favourite way of travel. Strange as I like the planes and the airport itself if I can relax and watch the planes being loaded and unloaded.
The Internet has made it possible to enjoy being locked down even with just my little phone.

Dear friends! We had a nice drive along the sea side and we even found a nice fruit & veggie market where we could buy baby potatoes and yammy strawberries. It was great to be 'out of the comfort zone' for a change.

Yeo - How's your knee? I hope it's not causing you pain anymore.

Ludmila - I already had a peek at some of your pics from Berlin. How great you could meet Monika and Annemarie there.

Britta-Gudrun - Let's hope Madame Ester will be more generous next time! :D

Good morning! Guten Morgen!

We're going for a drive by the sea side so I just say 'terve' and write more when we're back.

While you're waiting for me :D you can read something interesting from the COPENHAGEN ZOO. Inge posted a couple of nice new photos of Inuvik, too.

Garpe Diem! Have a great TDT!

Vor einem Gewitter bin ich verschont geblieben, aber Regen gab es nur einen teapott voll, da war Madame Esther leider sehr sparsam heute Nacht.

Good evening dear Knuipians!

Conratulations for the Zoo Hannover! The Name Nana sounds Well.

Today was a warm and sunny day. We wait tomorrow for rain. This is very needful for the nature and the garden.

I wish you all a pleasant evening!

Dumba - Thank you for the information! I like the name Nana although it made me think of a character in novell by Emile Zola. Well, 'our Nana' is a decent polar bear girl! :D - Yes, Momo would be a very nice name for a cubbie.

Britta-Gudrun, Ralph - Uncle Sergej is arranging a little 'Christening party' for us. We can raise our glasses to sweet Nana later this evening. :D

There was a Polar Bear in Japan called Nana. You can see vids of her on Youtube when she was 32 in 2017. The name is famous for being the dog belonging to Wendy in PETER PAN.
It is a good short name for a little girl Polar.
I am sure Uncle Sergej will have a suitable drink to celebrate her name day.

Et voila:


Perfekte Wahl in meinen Augen!
Gratulation Richtung HANNOVER!

Wenn ich gerade Euren Austausch ueber den neuen Katzenzugang in Wolfsbuettel lese, finde ich, dass wir bei naechster Gelegenheit mal MOMO vorschlagen koennten! Ich kann mich nicht erinnern, dass mir dieser Name schon mal bei unseren geliebten Eisbaeren ueber den Weg gelaufen ist - oder doch???

Britta-Gudrun - Almost Pasch! - The riots in USA are terrible - they remind me of the riots in the early 60'. 45 has turned the clock backwards - how sad and unfortunate for his country.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! The heat is on - it's far too hot to my liking.

Dumba - Thanks for the links! Let's hope Milana's baby girl gets a nice, unique name.

Britta-Gudrun - An 'off-online' day is sometimes needed! I'm glad I can edit and prepare articles for publishing in KWM and save them so I don't have to be an editor every day. Of course, when there are some 'hot news' I just can't hold my horses .... :D

Ludmila - I hope Momo keeps walking in your garden and not in the neighbour's so it's easier to find him. :D

In KWM I can offer you some 'BERLINER LUFT' signed by Dumba. I'm sure you willl enjoy the walk with her - and what's best - you don't have to wear a mask! :D

I wish everybear and everybody a most pleasant Hump Day!

Guten Morgen allerseits, auch wenn ich hier noch alleine bin.
Nun hat auch meine Gartenhecker "die Haare schoen" und der Sommer kann kommen.

Ludmila, hoffentlich macht Momo jetzt nicht oefters nachts so lange Ausfluege.

Ich bin gespannt, wie sich das betriebssame Wochenende auf die Infektionszahlen auswirken wird.

Die Krawalle in Amerika sind sehr verstoerend.

Ich wuensche einen erfolgreichen Hump Day!
