March - the month giving us mixed feelings

Dear friends! March has become a month of night mares but it also offers some happy moments. We're sad thinking of the loss of two lovely polar bears - Knut and Fritz. However, at the same time we can also be happy about the baby bears that have now come out with their mothers in many zoos. We just have to learn to walk hand in hand with our sadness and our happiness!

Lots of greetings to you all from Copenhagen. We had nice weather to-day and yesterday. To-morrow and the Easter shall be cold and rainy.

Mervi, the zoo has just written, that to-morrow they will try to bring Nöel and Nord together about, so I will try to be there - rain or not.

The everstarving are sleeping.

Hallo Ihr Lieben!

Mervi - Thank you for forwarding our wishes to TBM and updating us on her situation.
I hope the right medication will support her well-being.

Sarsam - Best wishes to Lloyd and you!
Seems there's a cloud with health mishaps over you at the moment.
How is you leg meanwhile?

Ludmila - Tommi and I were out before the moon started greeting us. I need to go and check if the full face of La Luna can be seen.

Venus and Nalle - You definitely are what I'd call 'Glücksbärchen' since you got another load of snow to please you for some more weeks. Enjoy frolicking in the snow heaps!

Sarsam - What bad luck Lloyd had! I hope his eye will be heal soon.

Ludmila - I understand that the Tierpark wants to be quite sure everything's 'safe' before Wolodja comes back.

I am sending the best wishes to Llyd and you. I hope the resting will help Lloyd. It is terrible feeling to have the blood in the eye.
I keep my fingers cross for your leg.

Greetings from quite warm Massachusetts!

Mervi, please would you extend my greetings, soft hugs, and best wishes to TBM for a speedy recovery. Thank you.

Lloyd was physically straining to complete a task on Friday late afternoon when a capillary burst in his eye. He went to the doctor on Saturday and we spent most of the day yesterday at the specialist's office while he underwent a complete examination. No retinal damage, thank goodness, but it is hard to see out of the eye because of the blood -- rest frequently and don't lift anything heavy are the instructions. He is to return for another checkup in a couple of weeks.

Ludmila -- I'll know more about my leg Wednesday p.m.

Sending best wishes, hugs, and wing greetings to all.................................Semper Knut!

A baby wolverine is cute.
We have the clouds now, I hope they would prevent the night frost. The cherry tree is full with blossoms.
Du kannst die Tropfen nicht von oben tröpfeln. Mann muss sie in die Haut einreiben.
I hope the snow will stay in Ranua. The polar bears love it.
I find Tonya's fur very bad. It is not bad that she and Wilodja are not together now. They both do not look nice.

Patricia - Congratulations to Belgium! The wolverine cub is sweeter than candy. Do you know from which Swedish zoo the parents came?

Knuti-Judi - Hello to the hot Connecticut!

Oh bear, in Ranua Venus and Nalle can keep on enjoying the Winter. Last night there was a blizzard which meant about 25 centimeters new snow. The snow heaps are now about 1 meter high! - What a differece to Dumba's photos of the green Berlin! :D

Good evening Dear All, a quick hello here from ? well at least now- a sunny Leuven, but this morning, it was very chilly and according to the weather forecast, it might become cold again during the weekend with even snow in the Ardennes and night frost for us all.
Today, I found lovely news in my newspaper (na ja, therefore, it is a NEWSpaper, isn?t it). For the first time since prehistory in our little country, a wolverine was born in the Grottos of Han (a wildpark in the Ardennes and the parents are coming from a Sweden zoo). Hope that the links to the pics are working:

Ludmila - The sky is quite clear here at the moment. I hope I can see the full moon in the evening.

Britta-Gudrun - Our cats have eyes on their backs and even on their stomach. I'm quite sure of that! :D

Dumba - I already accepted your kind invitation for a walk in the CCC. The Spring is at it's best now - I love the trees and bushes before they become 'too green'. How exciting that the pidgeon chose the same place even this year. I wish the family best of luck.

Christine - Have you started packing yet?

Mervi, thank you very much for passing on our thoughts to TBM, and giving us an update. I am so sorry that the stress had made her ill.

Contrary to the three previous days, today it's rather chilly AND windy
and in the morning we had even some rain. Since approximately half
an hour sun honors us with its presence :)
I simply had to make another few pics for the monthly album and at this
occasion I just could discover that the doves obviously decided to build
their nest at the same place as last year - that's exactly vis-à-vis of my
kitchen window :)
As already a third of the month is over and due to the fact that I am
too tired/read: lazy to write a report, I first bring you the link to the 1st
part of the CCC-April-potpourri:

Mervi, danke fuer deine Nachrichten von TBM, die sich hoffentlich bald erholt.
Der Stress den sie hatte und immer noch hat, ist so gefaehrlich fuer ihr Herz.

Ludmila, mein Django ist voll mit Zecken, weil er Tag und Nacht draußen ist.
Ich will Frontline aus kleinem Abstand auf seinen Nacken fallen lassen, wenn er gerade am Essen ist, aber schwupps ist er dann verschwunden, weil er schon ahnt, was ich vorhabe.
Hier ist es schoen warm und gar nicht windig.

Hello friends at coffee time!
I wish TBM all the best. It is difficult to take the things easy. The problems do not go away.
Tonight is a full moon. I am afraid we will have the clouds
How are the birds doing at the river. In the morning we hear the birds in our garden very good.
We wanted to work in the garden at Eastern, but it is very cold now.
How are you doing? I hope your leg is doing better.
We fight the ticks now. I managed to get the drops to 4 cats, only Minka manages to escape from me :)

I have now forwarded your greetings to TBM and she was delighted by your best wishes. She's doing fine - considering but she must stay in the hospital at least a couple of days more. Lots of tests have to be taken so she will get the right medication. Of course, this means that she will have to take it very easy in the future.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - we have a very windy day here, almost stormy but baby bear don't care!

Chris - I hope the 'PC Daktari' can cure your knuputor! Good to meet you here again!

Dumba - Thank you for saving us from starving! :D

Ludmila - I guess the powerful wind is trying to clear the way to Miss Spring here. :D - I hope Fluffy is doing fine!

Britta-Gudrun - All for one, one for all! :D

I will phone Teddybärenmutti later today. I'm sure your kind get-well-wishes will cheer her up.

Today's cuteness in KWM comes from Tallinn. Aron and Frida has a nice surprise ....

Now I wish everybody a very pleasant Tuesday - Patricia's favourite day!

Good morning! Guten Morgen!
It is cold today. The weather is like April: sometimes the sun is shining, then the clouds are there with the rain. I hope Fluffy is in the garden house. He has a basket and the blankets.
Herkules is ready
