Dear friends! After some grey and rainy weeks we can again enjoy the Christmas decorations and lights. Lets hope the Advent time will be a pleasant waiting for the highlight of the season! Of course, there's also a little story for you:

Filomena - Christmas is only once a year so enjoy the markets! :D

Ludmila - I bet Sydney was looking very innocent under the 'moving tree'. :D Luckily we've done all the shopping now so it's time for cosy relaxation.

Hello friends at coffee time!
The time for the Christmas markets is only a month. Enjoy them :)
I hope out tree is alright. Yesterday Sydney started to pull the lights. She sat under the tree and the tree started to move. Katharina spoke very long with Sydney, then they went upstairs together. In the morning Sydney stayed sleeping. I hope she is not under the tree now.
Do you have some cookies for us? :)
How are you doing today?
Today is our last working day before Christmas. We will drive for shopping in the evening.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - due to the mild weather it's a bit difficult to believen that the day after tomorrow is the Christmas Eve! :D

Happy birthday to you, dear Vesa! Mimmi and Nalle have, of course, made all the efforts to make your special day a very happy day! :D

Ludmila - How are your trees? Have the cat gang shown any interest in redecorating them? :D Our tree is still standing! (Knocking on wood again)!

Leti - Merry Christmas to you, too!

Britta-Gudrun - I'm missing Dumba, too , but maybe she's visiting her relatives?

Annemarie - Thanks for the morning treats!

Yesterday I tried to send Christmas greetings via email but I had great problems creating send lists. When I finally managed to make one and even sent the greetings I discovered I had forgotten the cards I intented to enclosuse the mail. So this is the explanation why some of you might have recieved 'odd' greetings. :D

Today's contribution in KWM comes from Mimmi and Nalle and I guess you know what the reason is? :D I wish everybody a very pleasant Tuesday!

The time is coming when I will not be able to use the Library and will have to rely on the Internet Cafe in Oxford between 24 December and 3 January. I will have to try and do something about a new system in the New Year but as you can imagine I have a lot of other stuff to do first.
Thank you all here and especially Knutis Weekly with its beautiful reports that cheer me up so much.
I had to laugh at the suggestion that Valeska of all bears was "forced" into having a cub so soon after little Lale. My frequent watching of her and Lloyd on TV and comparison with wild bears makes me think that if she had wanted a "rest" she would have been more than able to avoid Lloyd's advances. Instead they seem to have done what most young animals and humans do by instinct- go for a second birth while still young and healthy enough. The look of contentment and care for the newborn on Valeska's face would seem to agree. Of course the cub is still very fragile, so we must keep our fingers crossed.
The black and white pictures of Valeska and her baby remind me so much of lots of photos I have of Mother Ursula with me and are very heartwarming.
Lloyd will of course be the one to suffer, but the keepers at Bremerhaven know and love him very much and I am sure they have lots of ideas to keep him occupied.
No news again from Hamburg. It seems that Blizzard and Victoria are not as compatible as other Polar couples. We never seem to hear much.
I hope to post again on Christmas Eve, but would like to wish everyone a peaceful and Polar Bear filled Christmas.

Hallo Dumba, wo bist du?
Ich vermisse deinen morgendlichen Weckruf schon seit einen Tagen.
Hoffentlich bist zu okay.
Gib bitte wenigstens einen Pieplaut von dir!

Guten Morgen!

Der Herkules und der Samowar-Tee sind frisch zubereitet und wir haben auf dem Tisch no. 5 Croissants und Vanille-Kipferl sowie Gewuerz-Spekulatius - solange der Vorrat reicht.
Bis nachher!

Sarsam - My flu is almost gone so I'm looking for Christmas without a 'Rudolph nose'. :D

Britta-Gudrun - Here's to all the newborn cubbies in the world!

Ludmila - It will be thrilling to follow Sydney's 'activities' around the tree. Our tree has been left unattacked so far.... _D

I am afraid Sydney will bring the tree to fall. She is under the tree and attacks it.
Speedy is very active. She eats not very much now.

Greetings from cloudy Massachusetts!

A grateful thank you to all those who signed the lovely card I received from Berlin!

Congratulations to Valeska and Lloyd on the birth of their cub! A "cubbie cutie" sounds just right for the occasion :-)

Mervi -- I hope your flu has flown away so that you can fully enjoy Christmas!

Knuti-Judi -- Your cookies smell and taste divine........thank you!

Annemarie -- Great joke!

Ludmila -- So Sydney has appointed herself guardian of the Christmas tree? How is Speedy doing? Yes, the shoes are still okay -- amazing as that seems. Deedee has pulled the shoestrings a little but is being respectful of the rest of the shoe. I don't give Gandy a chance to bite the shoes (or me) :-))

Paw waves and best wishes to All.....................................Semper Knut!

Ja, um Lloyd tut es mir auch etwas leid. Man

Opps, my comment has disappeared?

Annemarie, we need no Kichererbsen for this joke, he is super!

Knuti-Judi, your Cokkies are delicate and by Annemarie, I like to take Pan vegetables.

Poor Lloyd, your affair has consequences for a long separation of Valeska, but I want a healthy life the baby bear.

I wish you a good start in the Christmas week!

Mervi, let's take a drink with Uncle Sergj - cheers for our babybear in Bremerhaven!

Ludmila - I feel a little pity of Lloyd but but I hope he'll understand that 'his amorouse actions' are causing his renewed bachelor days. :D

Knuti-Judi - I'm munching the cookies and I find them all very yammy! :D

Chris - My knuputor is running very slow today so I'll check the photo later.

Uncle Sergej has arranged a baby shower for us and, naturally, several new drinks for us to sample .... I'll try the 'cubby cutie'for starters! :D
