Die Knuipe

March - the month giving us mixed feelings

Collage by Mervi, Original Knut and Fritz by Monika aus Berlin and Tierpark Berlin

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!

Dumba - Thank you for all the comments in Flickr! - I'll have a walk with you later but I'm looking forward to it. :D

Knuti-Judi - Oh bear, your stay in San Diege was much longer than planned. I hope the flight from Washington DC went well.

Ludmila - Thanks for the information from Tallinn! I'm glad to hear there will be a better enclosure for the polar bears in September.

Ralph - :D :D :D

Britta-Gudrun - I wish Django best of luck with his 'beauty diet'. :D

Dumba, ...dein Tipp: Every positive thought propels you in the right direction hat mich zu einem Stadtbummel ermutigt, zwar japsend aber erfolgreich.
Deinen Fotos widme ich mich nachher in aller Ruhe.

Ludmila, Django macht auch seine Schlankheitskur wegen der Katzendamen!

Ich wuensche einen gemuetlichen Feierabend und schaue jetzt erst mal nach Aron in Tallinn.

Thanks for the posting of my Thursday drinking campaigns. My friend's cat "missy" likes
Ludmila Thanks for the phone help.

K-J I see your passing through Washington DC. Take care of yourself. I hear there are
some "confused" businessmen living there these days.

KNUDY - Hopefully you could enjoy a bit the unexpected extra-time
at the US-West Coast, even though you might also have to cope
with some inconveniences in the West as well as in the East . . .
Enjoy your weekend to the fullest - Work can wait until Monday! ;) :)

As a skilled psychologist you will agree, I guess:

Hello friends at coffee time!
I wish you a good fly home
The cat is funny :)
The new enclosure in Tallinn will be ready in September.
I am thinking on you. I hope it was the last snow fall for you now. The birds were happy about the food in your garden.
Wasja started the spring time :) He eats less now. Yesterday he did not eat the fresh turkey. It looks like he wants to be slim in summer. :)
What is new about your cats?
How are your cats doing?

Ralph - If I've understood things right there will be a new enclosure for polar bears in Tallinn but I don't know if the project is already going on. However, it's really wonderful to see the keepers are doing everything they can to keep Frida and Aron happy.

Thank you for the email! I insert the 'message' here:

Best wishes for the weekend.

My bears were joined for their weekly beer by my friend's
cat mascot "missy".


Did you know that you can see GIOVANNA AND MISS Q LIVE every day between 12 - 14? Of course, you need a bit luck - sometimes they are 'out of camera'. :D If the video doesn't start just leave the page and try again. It worked for me anyway! Here's the link:

Dear Mervi
The picture and message of the new thread reminds us again of the ups and downs of the excitement of loving the great white bears. As Patricia has pointed out the wild Polars have an even harder time and many cubs are lost, but the survivors go on to master the harshest conditions on Earth.

The images of Frida and Aron show how robust the Polar Bear can be. Although Tallinn does not have the facilities of Ranua or Munich the keepers have provided love and toys. I only hope that as much care is shown when the time comes to finding Aron a good home. Of course I would love him to come to Doncaster until a nice Polar lady can be found.

I am in the Library today and it is good to be able to use their computers.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - the sun is shining again but it was very windy. However, we enjoyed the walk and could see that there are many signs of the Spring.

Teddybärenmutti - Congratulations! The Bear Army is rehearsing suitable songs and they will arrive later today to serenade you!

Britta-Gudrun - There are things we just have to accept - even though it's very difficult.

Ludmila - I'm sure Tonja notices the visitors and I hope there will be many of them to comfort her.

Dumba - The croissants look really fresh and the coffee smells very good! :D - Thank you for your kind words about my collages.

The cuteness warning in KWM is still valid! :D Today you can admire Frida and Aron in Tallinn.

I wish everybody a very pleasant Friday. Soon the weekend is here again! :D

Awwwwwwww . . . . ! . . .
Thank you very much, dear MERVI, for this heartbreaking
beautiful, lovely . . . (you name it!) COVER PHOTO respectively COLLAGE
('Queen of collages, indeed!) topping your new KNUIPE-thread!

As it's again a grey day (as it was yesterday, even though sun was forecasted -
and will be until Monday - even with rain according to weather forecast),
let's start it with a friendly looking and hopefully yummy FIRST* breakfast:
* I am aware some need substatial food in the morning!! ;)

Have a good Friday, all looking forward to a weekend
that will meet your plans and expectations.

TEDDYBAERENMUTTI - Das tut bestimmt gut, mal wieder ERSTE zu sein
nach all Deinen betrueblichen Tagen, Wochen, Monaten, ja inzwischen fast Jahren!
Wie geht es Dir/Euch ueberhaupt? Man hoert so gar nichts mehr . . .

SARSAM - I was a bit shocked when I read your last report about
the condition of your injured leg. Really, I hope you have got a real
good physician. When did the 'accident' occurre? . . . Wishing you
further GOOD LUCK for full recovery!
