Die Knuipe

Five years with Knutitours!

Posted by Mervi on January 24, 2013 at 12:00 PM

Dear friends! Isn't it unbelievable - Knutitours celebrates today it's 5th anniversary! What a journey we've had together! There has been sunshine, there has been rain - we've had 'deliriously' happy moments and we've had times of deep sorrow. Yes, we've had it all!

I think the words above tell you what I want to say now. Thank you all for being on this tour with me and, of course, our tour goes on and on and on.....

Caren's lovely tribute to Knutitours

Manasse has been a bit bored since Venus only spends time with Ranzo. Teddybärenmutti has been in touch with him

Es ist langweilig /It's boring

Inge - Hello to Copenhagen! I can hardly wait to see the new enclosure - and, of course, Noel and Boris/Ivan again.

Talking about Copenhagen - maybe you all remember that Uncle Sergej was the strike leader at Carlsberg a couple of years ago. The workers had heard about our party and sent a lorry with Carlsberg beer to us!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KNUTITOURS and thank you !!!!!!!!!
All the best wishes from Wapiti, little Rose and Inge.
All the best wishes to you Mervi !
It would be nice to meet you in the Zoo in February.

Thanks for all the good wishes for my health.

TBM, I am sorry to read about your friend.

Dumba, thank you for greetings and for the links to Zoo and Frederiksberg, where I live.

There have been a lot about the new enclosure in the televison and in the papers. It looks wonderful.
And Noel and Ivan (Boris is not called Boris, he is called Ivan. But he is of course the one and only and still coming from Moscow) enjoy the enclosure. Noel came 2005 and Ivan/Boris 2007. And they do like each other. They are two happy bears.

Wapiti is starving, so I come back later. And now comes little Rose too. FOOD !

Let's stop for a while and raise our glasses to our beloved Herr Ober who can't be here tonight but his spirit will always live in our hearts and in our Knuipe. Here's to our dear Waiter!

Mervi: O.S. hat mit seiner tiefen Stimme die Gaeste beeindruckt, das habe ich auch bemerkt. Als er zu Balalaika-Musik 'Mamutschka' gesungen hat, da habe ich bei so manchem jungen Baerenkind eine oder auch mehrere Traenen in den Augen gesehen.
Yeah, trinke noch einen vom Spezial-Champagner. Tolle Party!

Snowbath is very good, but I took the hot bath today :)
I find Tosca, Nancy and Kati in snow great.
I see Mimmi and Nalle dancing together :)
Siku and LuLu together are lovely
I think I saw Gandy next to Minka. Sydney is dancing with Silver
We are lucky that Ninotschka with the children are skiing :)

Bärgit - I'm sure we can arrange a sightseeing with Berliner luft for Tommi and Makani !

The Golden Girls have just made a great entré and they all look smashing! Kati is looking for Ralph..... Nancy is looking for food and Tosca is checking if her hairdo is OK.

Annemarie - DJ Raspi wants to make the whole Knuipe rock and our young bears are doing their best.

Oh dear, Uncle Sergej just announced he's going to sing a couple of his favourite songs..... well. let him sing. He's been doing so much for this party so let's give him a standing ovation!

da sind.

Knuti Judi - how wonderful, that Bai Yun und Mr.Wu are here too! :)

Mervi - oh ja, die Bären aus Finnland und Schweden haben eine
weite Fahrt hinter sich - sie müssen sich erstmal stärken... :)

Bärgit - wie nett, dass Du auch kommen konntest. :)

Annemarie - Raspi ist in seinem Element. :)
Er mag ja solche Feierlichkeiten, während
Flocke etwas schüchterner ist. ;)

Bin zum Champagner-Trinken angetreten. Gibt es noch was? Da kommt ja schon O.S., ein wenig schwankend, mit einer Flasche und einem Sektkelch.
DJ Raspi hat gerade zur Damenwahl aufgerufen, oh welch ein Getuemmel, da bleibt kein Herr oder Baer verschont. Tolle Stimmung!

Knuti-Judi - Oh yes, Bai Yun and Mr Wu are here! Herr Yoghi has made a little climb-tree for Mr Wu so he can show us his skils. And, of course, he has arranged some bambus, too. - Thank God Willy is a charmer who can melt even lady Corinna's heart! :D

Uncle Sergej is teaching the young bears how to dance ripaska. What a sight this is!!

Ludmila - I couldn't think of a more beautiful decoration for the snow cake than Minka. :D

The Tyrolean Mighty Bears Orchestra has started playing An der schönen blauen Donau.....

:) Happy Birthday, Knutitours :)
:) Cheers, dear Mervi, best of all tour guides, creative mind, loving soul :)

Wow, that's quite a party!
Is that O.S. talking to Vera's boys?
I hope he's not giving them strange ideas.....

Ludmila - your cats look so elegant tonight.

O no, Tommi and Makani are asking for a snow taxi to experience what Berliner Luft feels like......

Filomena - Thank you and welcome to the party!

Crissi - This bus came with our friends from north - Venus, Ranzo, Manasse, Wilbär, Eva, Vicks and Sesi. Oh boy, they've had a long ride and they must be hungry and thirsty! Herr Yoghi is helping Uncle Sergej to serve them oxtails and suitable drinks from coconut 'glasses'.

I asked Uncle Sergej if Ninotschka and the 14 cubs are coming but he they are skiing in Kitzbühl. Hahnenkamm has temporarily changed the name to Bärenkamm....

How wonderful!

Oh, my...the party is in full swing!
Could it be? Could it be? Is that
mama, Bai Yun and Mr. Wu!!.....
Oh, joy~!

And Willy is charming the rolling pin
right out of Corinna's hand!

Oh, look! It's LuLu and Siku dancing
the Polar Bear Polka! How adorable!

How nice that Vesa gave you a ride home. Cheers to Vesa!
I remember the 1st Newsletter and all feelings which we had at this time.

Our cats are all in the Knuipe too. They saw a pink bus and jumped inside.
Minka helps the bears to make a cake. I think she is on the top :)
Ferdi goes for very short time out. He is sending the greetings to Silver :)
Minka stays longer outside. She plays with snow

stehen - ich erhebe mein Glas zum Jubiläum von Knutitours, Cheers alle! :)
