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

Sometimes "Friday I'm in Love"; however, I am ALWAYS in love with KNUTITOURS :-)

My general voting for KNUTITOURS, "Die KNUIPE", and "KWM" (KNUTI's Weekly Magazin):

AB is right:

Liebe MERVI, ausser dem nicht nachlassenden Interesse an KNUT im Besonderen und Baeren im Allgemeinen ist es DEINEM Fingerspitzengefuehl (management by perception) und DEINEM generell freundschaftlichen Auftreten (amicable attitude) und Vorgehen (amicable proceeding) zu verdanken, dass immer noch so viele gerne und einige davon nach wie vor regelmaessig bei KNUTITOURS und KWM auftauchen, ein paar sich sogar in beachtlicher Weise aktiv und zeitaufwaendig selbst einbringen.

Vielen Dank fuer alles und weiterhin die erforderliche Energie
und unversiegbare Freude an Deinem arbeitsaufwaendigen privaten Tun!

Take the pink fag aside for a moment, please, so I can give you a biiiiiig

♥ . KNUTi-style hug . ♥

Hello! It's me again. Maybe you would like to fresh up your memory and read how the Knutitours business started. In a 'newsletter' from 2007 I informed for the first time about the Knutitours Travel Agency. There are both English and German versions and you'll find it here:

Hello folks at coffee time!
Ich nehme ein Windbeutel gern :)
You are right, Ferdi was not happy. I cleaned the place to prevent him to try again.
Yesterday the weather was warm, only -2°C. In the night I saw a mond and in the morning we had -10°C. Now it is sunny and cold. It looks wonderful outside. The cats stay inside and sit at the window. :)
Is it still cold at your place? Did TP visit you again. How is Sarah's fur improving? I think Ferdi's fur is a bit better.
Are you here for a pot of coffee?

Annemarie - Fisch-Schnitten mit Kaviar - that sounds really yammy! I'm sure our guests will appreciate them. Don't worry, I have asked Raspi to order louds of them and, of course, our party master has fixed everything. Also quality champagne from Herr Graf and he didn't forget barrels of cod liver oil either. As you know our white fluffy friends prefer that to sparkling wine. :D - I don't know how many times I've written in the old thread even thoug I should know there's a new since I make them!!! :D - Hold on there, only a few hours to go.....

Crissi - Thank you for the birthday card both here and in Knutitis!

Ludmila - How embarrassing for Ferdi! :D

Dumba - Thanks for copying the latest comments from the previous thread.

Pink buses with polar bear passangers have been seen on several roads - they're coming from north, from south, from east, from west - and I've heard from very reliable sources that a pink Bear Force 1 has just landed on a nearby airport!! Oh my, maybe we'll be needing more cod liver oil....

Crissi: Einen paar Windbeutel habe ich noch im Kuehlschrank in der QC-Kueche - fuer den Nachmittag - gebunckert. Will mir dann auch noch einen WB genehmigen. Morgens brauche ich eher was Herzhaftes.

Liebe Annemarie - ich nehme erstmal ein Fischschnittchen,

Bitte arbeite nicht mehr so viel - ich hoffe, Du kannst dich
mal richtig erholen am Wochenende! :daumendrück: :)

Happy 5th Birthday Knutitours! Ein Hoch auf 5 Jahre Knutitours!

Liebe Mervi, vielen herzlichen Dank fuer all Deinen Einsatz bei Knutitours und auch hier in der Knuipe. Ich sehe Dich als einen Haeuptling, der hier und im KWM alles mit feinem Fingergespuer auf sehr freundschaftliche Weise managt. Ich, die bescheidene Squaw, moechte Dir und Deinen fleissigen Helferinnen und Helfer fuer die nicht immer so leichte Aufgabe sehr herzlich danken.

Auch wenn ich wieder mit Arbeit zugeschuettet bin, will ich kurz berichten, dass der Food Safe heute vollgepackt ist mit geprueften Windbeuteln, mit fluffiger Sahne gefuellt. Auch gibt es als Alternative Fisch-Schnittchen und diese sind zum heutigen Jubeltag teilweise sogar garniert mit etwas Kaviar.
Hier die Frage zum Code fuer den Food Safe: Knutitours feiert heute den wievielten Jahrestag? Die richtige Zahl ist der Code (1stellig).

Yoghi hat sich so sehr gefreut, dass man ihn und seine Eisbaeren-Freunde im KWM anlaesslich des Knutitours-Jahrestages so reizend erwaehnt hat. Er wollte immer wieder alles ansehen und ich sollte ihm vorlesen. Ich musste ihn mehrmals bitten, mit der QC fortzufahren, damit es nicht noch spaeter wuerde. Mit prallem Rucksack und einem zufriedenen Laecheln im Gesicht ging es dann heim zur Liebsten.

Caren: Dein Tribut zu Ehren von 5 J.Knutitours ist ein Highlight. Sehr, sehr schoen geschrieben und bebildert.

TBM: Dir auch lieben Dank fuer die neue suesse Geschichte. Manasse bekommt auch meine Visitenkarte. Yoghi ist einer! Ich will nicht undankbar sein, aber Lebertran ist nicht so mein Ding, IC schon eher ;-). - Deiner Mutti gute Besserung!

Nach meinem Herkules muss ich nun wieder den Kopf in die Papiere stecken.

PS: Bin schon so verwirrt, dass ich den Text in das alte Thread geschrieben habe. Doppelt haelt besser, deswegen habe ich ihn nun auch hier eingesetzt, an die richtige Stelle. Brauche bald einen Psychiater!

Mervi - ich stand mal wieder auf der Leitung
und habe noch im alten Thread gepostet. ;)

Yeo - Gratulation zur N°1 - the early bird! :)

Knuti Judi - thank you for the video of Siku and Lulu.
Both have grown a lot - they look healthy and agil! :)

machen? Auf die nächsten Fünf!

Caren, Mervi
In the morning we had a funny episode with Ferdi. Sydney uses our huge pot with palm as a cat litter. She is a good cat, she makes first a huge hole and then she buries everything. I change the earth each day. In the morning Ferdi came in the room and saw a handful earth on the floor. As Sydney made her hole a part of earth flew on the floor. He was too lazy to jump in the pot. He scratched the earth and wanted to use it as a cat litter. Uwe asked him: "Ferdi, what are you doing?" Ferdi run away :)

Caren - Oh dear, I hope you could have at least a few hours sleep last night. We really must make arrangements with Bruno & Co so they are 'stand-by' all the time when we need help! :D - It looks like I can leave the office a little earlier than usual so I'll be here to welcome our very special guests.

Ludmila - Let's have a cup - or a pot - of Herkules.

Sarsam - I really need a new wasching machine and I want one just like that in the video! :D

Good Morning, Dear Alle!

Mervi - thank you so much for the new Anniversary thread :)
A bit of luck accompanied me so that I could manage getting into KWM last night; otherwise I would have had a little problem ;)
Thank you for your kind words.
I hope you will have a Quality Day in the office on this special day ;) so that you will be able to welcome the travellers in the pink bus on time :)

Ludmila - Thank you, too for your kind words. I remembered your Box problems and thought "Let's give it a try" :)

Yeo - Congratulations for being #1 - I think a special prize is waiting for you today :)

Sarsam - Finally I was able to watch the movie you linked the other day. What a wonderful idea and how interesting to see the changing. The last scene is hilarious. I have never seen such queue to wait for using the washing machine :)

The Anniversary Hercules is waiting for you at table#5 (I hope it was not U.S. who made the coffee mixture for today) :)

Paw waves and wishes for a pleasant day. TGIF !

Thank you for the wonderful tribute for Knutitours. You did a great job.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - Do you remember when we together started Knutitours 5 years ago? Who would have thought we're still going strong?!!

Caren - I'm overwhelmed by your wonderful tribute to Knutitours! It certainly brought back lots of memories. I'll write a comment later when I've 'digested' all the lovely greetings from our fourlegged friends. - I just heard that a pink bus has been on the Autobahn heading to some place called Knuipe. That may not be so strange but the passangers look like polar bears!!! Top reporters from the whole world are now following the bus.... :D

Yeo - Good morning to you, too! Yes, you're the first on this 5-year anniversary thread and, of course, you will get a fantastic reward. This time the prize is an icebomb filled with herrings, salmons and salami. On the top there's a coconut filled with cod liver oil! Isn't that great! :D

Knuti-Judi, Crissi, Sarsam - Thank you for your kind greetings on the previous thread!

Knuti-Judi - Oh my, it was good to see LuLu and Siku again!

Sarsam - I know the feeling while watching Mr Wu's 'adventures'. My heart sometimes stops beating when I'm afraid he will fall down but he never does. Isn't it amazing that he's such a skilful climber already?

Susan - I have to work today - Mondays are my free days. I hope you made it home in time yesterday.

Teddybärenmutti - I'm sorry to hear the sad news of your friend. The only comfort is to know he's beyond all pain now.

I wish everybody a great day and hope you will all come to the great birthday party in the evening. Now I'm waiting for the pink bus to arrive....
