Hello friends!
We arrived home now :)
The weather was wonderful today. After 5 days in Moskau I feel as in summer today.
Uwe and I managed to see Katharina at many points at marathon. As she were ready I drove for an hour to the zoo Berlin and checked on Fatou

Bärgit - It seems to me you've had/are having a very happy birthday. Uncle Sergej certainly never lets us down but does his best to make us happy! :D - Thank you so much for the champagne!

Teddybärenmutti, Chris, Knuti-Judi and all - Let's raise our glasses to our birthday child Bärgit!

Hello Dear Alle!

I'm overwhelmed by ALL your good wishes and please give me a chance to make up for them with some decent bottles of champagne to go with TBM's Erdbeertörtchen!!!!

Cheers, Zum Wohl, alle miteinander!!!

Ludmila - Vielen, vielen Dank für die ganz besonderen Geburtstagsboten, die Wale aus der Weite des Pazifiks!
Glückwünsche für Katharina!

After the "oldie convention" which was fun, too, we spent a great Sunday in the Rhön mountains with my brother's family a bit further north. If you happen to travel in this region and feel hungry you could stop by here:


Uncle Sergej stopped by with his Bear Brass Boys and even started singing for a couple of barrels of decent beer :D . Good ol'chap knows how to please his friends :D

Patricia - I sorry to hear about your loss.
You were such a caring mom and Poppie couldn't have found a better girl to watch over her.

Wir hatten heute nochmal 25°C - kaum zu glauben, dass in einer Woche Oktober ist.
Der September war dies Jahr ein echter Sommermonat, das hatten wir schon anders.

Katharina - Gratulation zum Finish beim Marathon mit einer guten Zeit! :)

Bärgit - ich hoffe, Du hattest einen schönen Tag im Kreise der Familie! :)

Mervi - schlage vor, wir stoßen auf das Wohl von Bärgit an - CHEERS!

Wünsche allen einen gemütlichen Sonntag Abend... :)

Greetings from the Napland! After booking the flight and the hotel in Berlin in December I rewarded myself with a nice afternoon nap. :D

Britta-Gudrun - The sky with the sun, the moon and the stars makes me often think that we all see them no matter where we live. We see them in different times but still .... fantastic!

Leti - Greetings to Thessaloniki!

Dumba - Thank you for the impressions from the Berlin marathon! - How's your mouse situation - I mean the 'lodger' not the device by the knuputor. :D

Ludmila - It looks like Katharina had a very good marathon again. Congratulations to you all!

Patricia - I'm sorry to hear you had to let Poppie go. However, she had a good life with you and you have nice memories of the beautiful cat lady. - Our teeth are such nuisances but we can't live without them. These little things should last as long as we live and not cause us pain and deep holes in our 'money pockets'. - Thank you for the email! This time everything worked fine!

Yeo - Have a nice, cosy evening, too!

Ich wünsche Euch allen einen schönen, ruhigen Abend.
Liebe Grüße

Good evening Dear All,
First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Dear Birgit, wishing you a wonderful time.
Dear Mutti and Vatti, thank you so much for your lovely postcard from Athari Zoo. I love the snowleopards.
Dear All, sorry for having been so absent during the last weeks, but the problems with my teeth continued. Since the last days, I finally cat eat without pain and you will understand that I am now hoping that it will stay like this.
Unfortunately, last Thursday, I had to say farewell to my old Poppie. With her 20,5 years, she became more and more weak and at a certain moment, you realize that not helping her would become a crime.
Here in Leuven we have had a lovely Indian Summer even though the nights are becoming chilly and that it is still dark in the morning when I have to go to the train station. But today, we finally got some very needed rain and I can almost hear the grass sing.

Another nice image/impression of the day
at/around Brandenburger Tor:


Katharina is at position 690 (congratulations! It's great I think!!)
Her time:
Finish: 03:33:57
Gross: 03:39:15 ('Brutto' *)
* Don't know what this second time means/signifies . . .

Liebe Birgit, dem Sonntagskind ganz herzliche Glueckwuensche zum Geburtstag, den wir ja schon seit 3 Tagen hier feiern. Hab einen schoenen Tag mit lieben Gaesten!

Das Wetter ist immer noch ganz toll, so macht der Spaetsommer Spass.

Ludmila, einen schoenen Tag in Berlin und viel Erfolg fuer Katharina beim Berlin Marathon!

Ralph, dein Bericht ist wunderbar. Ich lese ihn gerne zweimal und kommentiere dann.

Dumba, hoffentlich hat die Maus nicht an deinem Computerkabel genagt....
Dein Bild passt gut zu meinem Feierabend, denn gestern hatte ich Großkampftag am Gartenteich - auch dort habe ich das Rheingold leider nicht gefunden.....

Mervi, es ist schoen, nachts die Sterne anzusehen - das haben wir alle vom Kleinen Prinzen bei Antoine Saint-Exupéry gelernt.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - today we'll have a 'real' birthday party. :D

DEAR BÄRGIT - HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! Let your gang pamper you today and make all your wishes come true! :D Maybe you'll find the treasure during the day ....

Dave - The sky with all the stars always looks amazing. Even though I'm not a star expert even I recognize the Big and Little Dippers. :D - It looks like Canada is going to win the World Cup.

Filomena - The Octobear Fest will go on for weeks so let's have fun!

I wish everybody a very relaxing Sunday!
