Dear friends! This Summer will be as 'strange' as the Spring was. I hope the sweet memories of the Super Summer 2007 will help us to stay in a good mood!

Good morning! Guten Morgen!

Yeo - I wish your husband a speedy recovery! What bad luck to be bit by an UFI (Unknown Flying Insect). Hopefully the medicine will help! - Thanks for the breakfast!

Ralph - In these days we can't make any definite plans but we need something to look forward to. Be patient - I'm sure you will meet Flocke and her trio!

Britta-Gudrun - The sky is so cloudy that I can't even see the stars but I'm trying to keep my eyes open and look for the comet. - Yes, Caren and MoniK have posted nice reports from the Gnadenhof in KWM.

After the re-opening of the zoo and the Tierpark Gudrun has been a regular visitor. Today you can enjoy her report from the Tierpark in KWM.

I wish everybody a cosy Saturday! Remember - 'Patience' is our middle name so keep the distance and wear a mask. Avoid crowds!

Yeo, "bestechender Charme" bei der Spritzenverabreichung ist sehr witzig! Das muss ich mir fuer meine reizende Arzthelferin bei der Blutentnahme merken. Gute Besserung fuer deinen Privatpatienten!

Ralph, ich wuensche dir viel Erfolg fuer deine Reiseplaene.

Zurzeit kann man die seltene Beobachtung eines Kometen machen

Heute sah ich eine Dokumentation vom Baeren Gnadenhof in Bad Fuessen, den wir auch durchh Carens fruehere Berichte kennen, nicht wahr?

Ich wuensche euch einen schoenen Tag!

Have been chatting to my travel agent about visiting Flocke in August. The rail route is too complicated and a lot more expensive so I am reluctantly going to have to fly to Nice. There is a lot to do between now and the trip. In these dark days a lot can go wrong but I must try to see three cubs and a Polar Mum.

Good morning dear Knuipians!

Breakfast and Herkules are ready.
Enjoy your meal!

Vor einigen Tagen wurde mein Mann von einem unbekannten Insekt ins Bein gestochen. Er bekam eine heftige allergische Reaktion, muss das Bein jetzt hochlagern und kühlen.
AuÃ?erdem bekommt er jeden Tag eine Spritze. Die kann ich ihm aber geben. Ich entfalte also taeglich meinen bestechenden Charme. :)
Ich hoffe, dass es ihm bald wieder besser geht

I wish you all a pleasant Saturday!

Ralph - I hope you can make it to Antibes and meet Flocke and her trio. Little by little things seem to be getting back to more normal status. I just hope people will bear in mind that the risk is not over yet. We just have to be patient and follow 'doctor's orders'.

Britta-Gudrun - Quintana's move happened so surprisingly fast. I read in the Tallinn Zoo's website that Aron will be moving to France in the Fall. Frida will have a male companion. Tallinn is one of the few zoos in Europe allowed to continue breeding polar bears which is very understandable because there are so many cubs this season.

Guten Tag am Nachmittag!

Annemarie, die Fotos aus dem Tierpark sind sehr schoen und die junge Giraffe ist natuerlich das Highlight des Tages. Ich haette gerne euren Regen gehabt...

Ich wuensche einen guten Start ins Wochenende!

Mervi, der Umzug von Quintana ging ja recht schnell ueber die Buehne. Vielleicht koennen wir bald bei Ulij mehr darueber lesen.

I had a Pizza Verdura sitting at a restaurant and later on a pudding at another restaurant.I am so glad that we are getting them back after so long. I was also able to have some beers with a friend.
Sadly the direct train to Doncaster does not run so I cannot go to see Raspi. But I amlooking at whether I can visit Flocke and her cubs in August. I may have to fly as the rail journey is quite expensive.

Good morning! Guten Morgen!

Annemarie - I thought I would be the early bear today but you were faster! Thank you for the breakfast! I managed to get the last croissant .... the rest had vanished in a most mysterious way. :D

In KWM you can meet the POLAR BEAR FAMILY IN NOVOSIBIRSK again. I'm sure you will love Arkadij's photos!

I wish everybody a pleasant Friday! Please, keep the distance - wear a mask! Better times will come if we just have a little patience!

Onkel Sergej hat mir noch schnell einen kleinen Gute-Nacht-Drink gemixt.

Im Back Room habe ich ein paar Fotos hochgeladen. Gestern im Tierpark habe ich auch wieder den kleinen Giraffen-Jungen Henry besucht, den ich so putzig finde. Leider fing es dann sehr an zu regnen und ich musste schnell nach Hause, damit mein Junge (Sherwin) nicht allzu nass und froestelig wurde.

Caren - Hello! Nice to meet you here again! Thanks for the information.

I just published a little article about QUINTANA'S MOVE in KWM.

Good Evening !

Just to let you know that Quintana arrived safe and sound in La Fleche

Dumba mentioned in KWM: "Hoffentlich gehtâ??s gut mit drei nicht mehr so ganz jungen Weibsn zusammen"
Nanook and Nanuq were born 2016 and 2017 (same age as Quintana).

Wishing you all a great evening :-)

Dumba, auch dir wuensche ich gute Bessserung und schnelle Heilung deiner Prellungen,
die auch sehr lange schmerzhaft sind.
Das mit dem Schusselgen wuerde ich nicht so ernst nehmen...., dann muessten wir naemlich alle Asche auf unser Haupt streuen!

Dumba - Oh bear, what bad luck! However, the good thing is that no bones are broken. I wish you a speedy recovery from the injuries. I'm a master of getting bruises on my arms and legs. Somehow I always manage to 'hit' the door or a table or something else. :D- The reading cat is very funny!

First of all I would like to wish PATRICIA a speedy and sustainable recovery/health. Good that at least for the time being there is no more need for sorrows because of your belaoved cats. Such hopefully you will really be able to take YOUR time and to relax!

For one more time (and I am afraid it's not the last one) I am a 'Gefallenes Maedchen'. This time in the middle of the 'Hauptstrasse-sidewalk after having left a flower shop. On same knee + shinbone (left) as already in October 2019 (those inner wounds are still not cured by now!) + elbow + knee plus anklebone right leg . . . . and in addition Iam very amused about my usual 'summer-elephant-like 'water-legs'! . . . THANK YOU! . . . Anyway, I am still lucky because the result could have been worse. At least nothing is broken and I could avoid to hurt face and/or head! . . . two days ago I couldn't really move anymore and yesterday it took 2 hours(!!!) to leave my very low bed. That was a time of despair as you can imagine I guess. . . . But today I am back to more optimism again; however, I am pretty sure that was not my last 'accident' for the rest of my love.
Whether 'guilty' or not, I've become an all-time-oldy-'SCHUSSEL' . . . grrr

Vielleicht muss ich's mal der Katze gleichtun!? ;-)

'Beine hoch und Lesen' ist im Moment sowieso die angesagteste Beschaeftigung!

Aha! - Die Gene sind also schuld : ;-)))))

Chilly-grey weather is the weather also in the CCC
(unfortunately still without right rain). But for me personally at the moment it's ok !

Despite of GREY and one or another mishap and/or sorrow don't get desperated
rather enjoy any second of YOUR day, Dears ALL/e!

Good morning! Guten Morgen! The rather chilly weather seems to be here to stay. Well, I certainly don't mind! :D

Britta-Gudrun - Every Summer I manage to catch a slight cold but this year the symptoms have been very 'light'. I hope you will avoid the cold, too!

In KWM there's a different kind of article of bears today. It's about the BUDDY BEARS! I have always loved these cute figures that pop up almost everywhere in Berlin. :D

I wish everybody a pleasant TDT! Please, keep the distance - wear a mask. Let's chace the virus away!!

Guten Morgen!

Ich bin schon wieder der early bird heute, aber immer noch im Pyjama, also nicht wirklich fit.

Das Wetter in Deutschland ist zweigeteilt: noerdlich viel Regen und im Rest der Republik nur Sonnenschein und Trockenheit. Wer moechte mit mir tauschen?

Patricia, fein, dass es Babbelute wieder besser geht und dir wuensche ich auch ganz schnell gute Besserung mit der Erkaeltung.
Ich dachte eigentlich, dass man sich durch das viele desinfizieren nach Einkaeufen und aehnlichen Aussenkontakten seit Coronazeiten auch nicht mehr so schnell Erkaeltungsviren einfaengt.
Ich praktiziere diese strengen Hygienevorschriften wegen meiner COPD schon seit 3 Jahren und hatte seitdem keine Erkaeltung mehr - toi, toi, toi!

Passt gut auf euch auf und bleibt gesund!

Patricia - I'm so glad that Babbelute is feeling better and eating well. - I wish you a speedy recovery from the cold. I hope it's 'only' an ordinary cold.

Chris - The albino wallaby baby is adorable! - The gurus have predicted chilly and stormy weather during the next few days. It remains to be seen if they're right - for a change .... :D

Ralph - The article of Nana's tongue really is interesting. - People living in southern Sweden are allowed to travel to Denmark from Saturday. However, you need all kinds of 'papers' before you can cross the border so we will wait for better times.
