Dear friends! Again it's time for a big Oktobear Fest in our Knuipe and as usual it will go on for weeks! In Munich there's a very special party going on, too. You can read more about it here:

Greetings from almost summery Massachusetts :-) The fall colors are at peak around here and the birds are whizzing by on their trips south. We took Chloe to the vet today to find out whether she is hyperthyroid. Blood test should be back tomorrow or the next day.

Yeo -- Sending best wishes for our husband.

Mervi -- Mimmi and Nalle are good "watch-cats" -- a very important trait :-)

Ludmila -- Congratulations on the two new spheres! Fantastic! Our cat gang sends greetings to your gang -- how is Ferdi's ear? Thank you for the orange juice -- it was very delicious!

Chris -- That is a handsome fox. We have not seen any foxes in our yard lately -- but we occasionally see one on the ride home at night.

Paw waves and hugs to all..................................Semper Knut!

Mervi, I also wish the bears a long nice sleep.

Now the french film "Jappeloup" is finished. About a french goldwinning horse. It was good, and I had checked before I saw it, what happened to the horse. I do like happy endings, and it lived its whole life in the same stable and died at the age of 16 from something with the heart.

Good night from Inge and the not starving (they have just eaten) cats.

I just read that all the brown bears in Orsa have started hibernating. The Winter is around the corner - at least in northern Sweden! :D

Chris - I love foxes and the one in the photo is a very beautiful representant of his species. :D

Bärgit - We are quite satisfied with our new cooking hood - it works fine. - Maybe Tommi has had a little chat with the workers explaining his point of wiew ..... :D

Inge - I thought you were going to make a 'cruise' to Rostock after your Berlin trip. :D Well, Kiel will be great, too!

Ludmila - Thanks for the orange juice! Maybe we have some tomato juice, too? I would like a Bloody Mary now although Uncle Sergej said he can make a new version of it called Polar Mary. :D

Mervi, wonderful that your handymann came at the time he should.Hope the result is ok.
Wapiti and little Rose are sleeping.As long as it lasts.

Ludmila and Mervi, I am not going to Rostock. I am going to Berlin. But I take the ferry Gedser Rostock. I go with Eurolines from Copenhagen to Berlin and back home. I am visiting Kiel later in December - just one day. I have not been there since I was a very young girl.

Dumba, suesse Links - danke schoen !

Chris, charming fox.

Vielen Dank Bärgit. Schoenen Abend.

And now a french film on the television. Good night from here.

Hello Dear Alle!

Oh, what a day.
Keeping an eye on the Jolly Trio is very demanding. Ms. Nellie needs to take her medication which has to follow a certain ritual, Tommi & Makani need an eagle's eye to make sure they are not up to exploring the world beyond our garden enclosure :D
But now everyone is happy and almost in mulch position - including me.

Mervi - Congratulations on your handymen.
Do you approve of what they have achieved?
We've had s team around the house, too. Extra attention needed because of thevpermanently open gate. Oh Tommi, sorry, I protected you from the fun beyond your garden :D

Dumba - Flokati would make a perfect name for your white puppy.
I liked it a lot.
And the tiny polar baby looks so fragile, sweet and precious.

Inge - Du kannst dir Ferien gönnen. Dein Deutsch ist sehr gut!

and later on a calm and relaxing/refreshing night with pleasant dreams

Ludmila - We could do so much good with the millions. What a pity the millionaires - at least most of them - don't want to use their money for good purposes.

Britta-Gudrun - I'm glad Nalle and Mimmi are cautious when they hear somebody's at our door. Mimmi often comes and say 'hello' when she sees the visitor is 'accepted' but Nalle keeps away.

Chris - I hope Uncle Sergej served you a nice cup of tea. :D

Mervi, Ludmila - scheinbar haben alle Katzen ein großes Misstrauen oder Angst vor fremden Menschen. Hunde sind wesentlich unempfindlicher Fremden gegenueber.

Mervi, ein großes Lob auf deine Handwerker und die neue Dunstabzugshaube!

Hello friends at coffee time!
Uwe and I think to establish a cat sanctuary if we will get a lot of money :)
Our cats hide if somebody ring at the door.
Do you have to walk the dog of your friend too? How is Tommi doing?
We have a very nice autumn weather. How are you doing?
How is your work improving? We have now 2 new speres from the new material. They look beautiful. We watch the surface for the damages after each measurement. :)
Our hedgehogs in the garden eat very well. I try to check on the hedgehogs. There are always big hedgies at the bowls.
