Dear friends! Many of you are having a Summer holiday or at least looking forward to it. I wish you all very cosy and relaxing days doing whatever you like to do! For us 'Freiherrinnen' every day is a holiday so let's enjoy our days, too! :-)

Knuti-Judi - The world really is frightening ....

Britta-Gudrun - I sincerely hope our sweet Tweetie will be strong enough when it's time for him to leave the 'nest'. Oh my, I miss him already! - Somehow Tweetie has become a symbol for how precious every life is.

Bärgit - The small things we see and hear every day are the things that make us happy. Sometimes it's just too easy to forget that.

Christine - We mustn't loose our hope even when the world looks very black.

Dumba - I sign you words!

Ralph - The polar bears are crying for many reasons these days. How I wish we could make them smile!

Filomena - I hope your friend with her cats is safe and sound.

Mervi thank you for the new thread
I am sorry because of te tragedy in Nice
in June I was 10 days at a camping place 110 km far away from Nice and there I met a friendly woman with name Lidia
she lives with her 2 cats Luna and Charme 5 months at the camping place but her flat is in Nice, sometimes during this time she drives with her little car home to Nice for 1 day and a half and looks after her flat. I hope she was not away from the camping place

Dear Alle I wish you a calm and good evening, dear greetings

I have just sent an e-mail to Sabine La Dame Blanche with an image of crying Polar Bear cub that I found on Google Images. Under the heading "crying polar bear" there are a number of such images which help express how sad we feel today.
Nice being so close to Flocke and Rasputin and the scene of my little adventure with Hercule Poirot so many years ago now. I can only emit the "Klageruf" that I last heard Fiete call out when he could not persuade Vilma to feed him.
Thank you Mervi for keeping this place for us all here to swap comforting words.

BRITTA-GUDRUN - Die Sorge um ein Lebewesen - ob Mensch od Tier - ist in hohem Masse ein 'Energie-Fresser'. Ich druecke Dir weiterhin die Daumen - fuer Dich und fuer Deinen Schuetzling. Moegt Ihr alles gut zusammen durchstehen und am Ende ein kraftvoll-optimistischer Fluegelschlag gen Sueden gehen!

Hello, alle, my thoughts are with the people of Nice.

Hello Dear Alle

Mervi - Thank you for creating a realm of peace especial in brutal times.
Happiness is something so precious. Yet, we sometimes aren't even aware of it beause of daily routines.
Let's nourish and protect the vulnerable flower of Hope in order to be able to make a difference.

No words for the new pain.

My heart goes out to the ones that have lost their loved ones and / or have been there when terror struck again.

Die Freude war nur kurz - die Freude darueber, dass die Fussball-EM friedlich und ohne Terror war. Und nun das in Nizza - unfassbar!
Ich bin einfach nur traurig und denke an alle die Opfer und ihre Angehoerigen.

Mervi, sorry heute kann ich nicht mehr schreiben. Danke für den neuen thread
Liebe Gruesse an euch alle - Dumba, deine Worte sind so wahr und weise.

PS. Tweetie verhaelt sich manchmal anders als Molly und versteckt sich nach dem Essen lieber hinter seinem Pandabaerchen. Deshalb mach ich noch keine Fotos, um ihn nicht zu stressen. Ich bin etwas unsicher und hoffe, dass alles gut geht mit ihm.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - I wish you a good day although again we've had terrible news from France. There are no words to describe how I feel about this cowardly terrorism. My thoughts are again with the French people and all the visiting tourists who had to witness this tragedy. The 14th of July will now be associated with terror.

I hoped this would be a happy new thread but again the lunatics have destroyed our dream of a better world. However, we just have to go on ....

Annemarie - Congratulations for being number one on this thread. Uncle Sergej, Ludwig and Yoghi will come to you with a picknick basket and hope you can enjoy the treats with them.

Dumba - I think you said it all very well! We must try and enjoy every day of our life because we never know what will happen. - The photos are very beautiful.

Ludmila - I wish you a pleasant day!

Teddybärenmutti - Hyvää viikonloppua!

Although it's hard to believe in a better world on a day like this let's not loose our hope! Today it's the 'Arctic Sea Ice Day' - maybe there's still hope .....


In KWM you'll find Ursula L's report from the Allwetter Zoo in Münster - enjoy!

I wish you all a pleasant day even when it has a sad lining.

Last year we were in Nizza. The news today is terrible

On another alarming day in the world
(terror, politics, environment, etc. etc. )
and in addition: dark, grey, wet outside,
I'd like to bring you some joy for the eyes (click the picture):


MERVI - Let's enjoy our days (!) as long as we can
in whatever phase of our lives we are. As we can see
day by day now, everything can end very quickly and
without advance warning - just like this o r after long
fights against deseases. Whatever will be our fate let's
praise the long time of peace the majority of us - at least
in this blog - could enjoy (lifelong so far !).

Thank you very much for the peaceful collage you
created as cover for this new thread and for the thoughtful
words. May I add: May your lives stay inviolated
whether in quotidian normal life or in holidays!

As you very well know yourself, dear MERVI,
as 'FREIHERRINNEN' we are more or less free to decide
what we want to do but the majority of us has still one or several task/s -
VOLUNTARILY. That's what makes a big difference! :)

Last not least:
- - - - - - - - - - -
ANNEMARIE - Congratulations! for being FIRST in this thread
for the first time if I am right! :)
+ Daaanke fuers Fruehstueck. Very much appreciated!, da ich gleich zweifach losstuerzen muss . . .

LUDMILA and UWE - Enjoy your latest holidays to the fullest!
Wishing your son MICHA the magic touch to guarantee none
of the cats will have a lack of cuddles ;)
