I forwarded the link immediately to a Dutch neighbor! :)
Der Comedian macht Stimme und Intonation perfekt nach!

MERVI - A slice of Madam NINI's cake would be heaven for me right now.
Thanks in anticipation! :)

Hello friends at coffee time!
Your anniversary article is very good
The sea-gull is very nice
I hope to meet you later here for the drink
I hope you will find some minutes for the Knuipe today. Minka will phone Gandy to remember him on the 9th anniversary. I hope Gandy will be able to tell you Minka's message :)

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - Once again I want to thank you for being our inspiration. Without you there wouldn't be any Knutitours!

Dear friends! I was very annoyed noticing that the avatars still don't show but on second thought - I think this describes very well our journey. There have been problems (and still are) but baby bear don't care but keeps on! :D At least we can stay in our ordinary Knuipe. There was a time when we had to raise a tent ..... :D

Yes, we been travelling a long time together and many of you have been here from the beginning. Many have dropped off but I'm glad there are even 'new comers'! Thank you all for being here with me.

I hope nobody's disappointed because I didn't mention any names in my anniversary article in KWM. I just didn't want to risk forgetting somebody. All the comments in KWM and all the posts here are very much appreciated! The same goes for all the reports and articles in our magazine!

Knuti-Judi - Congratulations for being number one on this special thread. Uncle Sergej has sent you a box with extra delicious licorice pipes! :D

Dumba - Thank you very much for your kind words which I already read late yesterday evening. I love the champagne served by the Bärliner Bär! :D - You're right, comments from the silent readers make me very glad - just like all the comments, naturalmente!! :D - Gina took many fantastic photos of Knut and luckily I managed to save some of them before the webshit crash.

Teddybärenmutti - Muistat kai kuinka hauskaa meillä oli Helttasarjan kanssa? :D

Ludmila - Thank you for being the co-editor-in-chief of KWM!

Britta-Gudrun - I hope our journey will continue as long as possible. The 10th year has already began ....

Chris - Thank you very much for your kind and appreciating words. I'm glad you joined this blog after the Flocke blog closed. - The gulls may be too 'screamy' sometimes but Nalle and Mimmi love to see them flying in the air. They are almost the only birds they can see from the balcony. :D

Annemarie - My special thanks to you and your breakfast team. The morning bulletines have been a fantastic start of many, many days.

I'm overwhelmed by all the nice things that have been said so I need a break to digest them all. Uncle Sergej is preparing a big party in the evening and, of course, everybody's invited!!! I wish you all a happy Hump Day!

die Reporter von KWM und

Ich durfte einen Großteil der Zeit ab 2010 mitverfolgen.
Es gab Höhen und Tiefen, sowohl in der Bärenwelt,
als auch in unseren privaten Leben. Die Klammer
war immer KWM und Knutitours, wo man sich
von vielen Sorgen und Nöten der echten Welt
etwas ablenken und entspannen konnte. :)

Der Dank gilt neben unserer Chefin MERVI natürlich den Co-Autorinnen
Ludmila und der leider etwas mysteriös verschwundenen Caren - ebenso
Doro und Bärgit für ihre fleissige Übersetzerinnen Arbeit in all den Jahren.
Und natürlich nicht zu vergessen unsere Reporter vor Ort, ohne die es KWM
nicht geben würde - ich nenne sie jetzt nicht alle, um niemand zu vergessen.
Wichtig ist natürlich auch das Knuipe Team um Annemarie, Yoghi, Ludwig
und Uncle Sergej mit Nini und den Kindern. Jahreszeitlich lassen sie sich
immer wieder spannende Aktionen einfallen, um die Gäste im Knugarden
und der Knuipe zu bespaßen - zentral natürlich der Frühstücksservice. :)

Liebe Mervi,

herzlichen Glueckwunsch zum Knutitours Jubilaeum.
Das ist ein wunderbares Foto von Knut, das ich noch nicht kannte.
Ich wuensche dir, dass sich heute auch noch ganz viele "stille Leser" melden,
um deine anruehrenden Collagen im KWM zu bewundern.
Die Reise geht weiter, das wuensche ich dir und uns allen hier von ganzem Herzen!

MERVI - As usual you are 'eine kleine Hexe':
Loong article in 'KWM' - new thread in 'Die KNUIPE'
- and look at the MOST LOVELY COVER PHOTO
of ❤K❤ N❤ U❤ T❤ ! (GINA made also so many
nice pics - pity she got lost along the line somewhere.
Hope she is WELL!)

I took my time to have a look at your wonderful
'9 year-KNUTITOURS-jubilee'-contribution in 'KWM'
- again so many charming collages and thoughtful thoughts!

As said already yesterday, I am in a hurry this morning
but will come back in the course of the day and then also
comment your special article in 'KWM'. . . But I am sure
you won't miss anything in the meantime, as there will be
A LOT OF REACTION to your article, as one could already
discover this morning when comments started with more or

A bit too early* - hopefully you are not superstitious! :
CONGRATULATIONS! and THANKS! for 9 years of KNUTITOURS on January 25th, 2017:

KNUTITOURS ist nun 9 Jahr!
Da wird gefeiert - ist doch klar!
Von der Lampe ruft der Storch.
Dort knallt ein Korken. - Horch!
Wo kommt denn der wohl her?
Woher wohl? - Vom Berliner Baer!

Wishing YOU and all your 'followers' a wonderful day
with mainly positive memories!
