Snow in Ranua - green leaves in Berlin

Collage by Mervi, Original Knut by Monika aus Berlin

Dear friends! It's Spring now although it doesn't look the same everywhere. We can for example compare photos from Berlin and Ranua and see the big difference. No matter what kind of Spring you're having - it's again Easter! Of course, I have made a little story for this thread.

PROST! to CHRIS, LUDMILA (thanks for the lovely easter bouquet!), BRITTA-GUDRUN,
KNUDY, YEO, RALPH und wer sonst eventuell hier noch herumschwirrt . . .

Dumba, das mit dem Hasenbraten habe ich mir bei dir auch gar nicht so recht vorstellen können.

Yeo, ich wuensche dir einen schoenen Tag morgen mit deinem Enkel, weil du das Osterfest ja leider im Dienst verbringen musst.

Mervi, danke fuer deinen schoenen Eintrag zu Fatous 60.Geburstag!

Ludmila - I hope your deco eggs are still safe and sound. :D

Yeo - I'm sure your son and your grandsons will be delighted by the gifts that their 'Easter Bunny' brings them.

Knuti-Judi - San Diego Zoo really has much to offer for the visitors!

Dumba - The Easter Bunny in the photo certainly found the right kind of 'eggs' to you! :D - I knew you would love to see the first pics from Fatou's birthday party. There will be more - by Monika aus Berlin - later. - I'm excited to hear more of your day! :D

MERVI - That was the most lovely surprise you could grant me.
Thank you so much: . .
For me it's kind of a RIGHT 13th OF THE MONTH !
Just to give you an idea:
After a tiny sip of water to accompany my daily medicine
I had the second fluid (again mineral water) after 3 PM!
Now, I had at least a yummy strong self-made coffee with cream(!)
and a yummy Toscana bun with lots of butter and 3 slices of
Italian cooked bacon with rosmarin . . .
May be I will tell you more later if you want to hear/read my wailing
any further . . . (?) ;)

Thank you so much for having published already something about
dear FATOU's birthday celebration. . . .
Can you imagine I did miss it completely!? :(

And that's what dear Easter bunny has to expect in the CCC

PS 04:15 PM:
Och, liebe BRITTA-GUDRUN - Du kannst absolut sicher sein,
dass ich bei dem suessen Bild keine Sekunde an einen Braten gedacht habe
( mag vielleicht von den Urheber so gedacht gewesen sein!?),
sondern vielmehr, dass das Haeschen vorwitzig schon mal
Umschau haelt, wann es wohl mit seinem Ei-Verteilungswerk beginnen kann!!

Tomorrow we will visit our son and will him bring his easter-gifts.
On the Sunday come the easter-bunny to our Grandsons. I am very excited and am very happy.

Und nun habe ich die 10! :D

Hello friends at coffee time!
Today is wet and cold outside. Micha drove yesterday to his girl friend to Trier. That's why the cats are all inside. I hope they do not play with the deco-eggs :)
Do you have the pictures from your visit in the zoo in 1961?
Ich wünsche Dir auch einen schönen Gründonnerstag.
Did you see the polar bears in the zoo San Diego?
I am sending the best wishes to Lloyd. I hope his eye is doing better. I hope your leg is doing better too. Our cats are sending the greetings to your cats.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - I hope we will all be in a really happy Easter mood!

Happy birthday, Madame Fatou - you evergreen lady! I'm sure the keepars have arranged something nice on your special day.

Dumba - Congratulations for being number one on this thread! Your glorious prize is a basket filled with colourful Easter eggs delivered to you by our sweet polar bear cubbies! How about that?! :D - Thank you for the breakfast!

Inge - I saw a glimpse of you in the video! :D Isn't it great Nöel's and Nord's first meeting went so well.

Chris - The sleeping kittens were a perfect Betthüpferl. :D

Ludmila - Are your cats looking for Easter eggs? We try to hide the chocolate eggs but Nalle and Mimmi can always 'smell' them so we have to find new hiding places. :D

Britta-Gudrun - We have a dull, rainy day here, too. I'm glad to hear you like the Easter story.

Ralph - 60 years is a very respectable age and it really feels incredibly that you met Fatou already in 1961 in Berlin!

As you may have noticed there's an Easter story starred by our cute cubbies in KWM. I wish you all a very pleasant TDT!

Dear Mervi What a lovely Easter thread to go with the beautiful story in KWM

Dear Dumba Thank you for sending me the link to your great album and the photos as well.
At the moment I have only done a short Berlin report for Mervi, but I may do something more.

I saw Fatou enjoying a salad on Tuesday lunchtime so I can certainly wish her a Happy Birthday. It is incredible to think that she was in the Zoo when I visited it with my parents in July 1961 just before the Wall went up- I was five and Fatou was three!

Och ne Dumba, wir wollen keinen Osterhasenbraten zum Osterfest,
alles andere ist sehr schoen in deiner Begruessung!

Happy Birthday dear FATU und ganz viele Leckereien wuensche ich dir heute auf deiner Geburtstagstorte von der wir bestimmt noch ein Video heute finden!

Mervi, vielen Dank fuer den neuen thread zum farbenfrohen Fruehling.
Deine Ostergeschichte im KWM mit der Wortschoepfung "Weidenbaerchen" ist grosse klasse!
Zurzeit ist es auch hier recht kuehl, aber immer noch ohne Regen.

Ich wuensche einen schoenen Gruendonnerstag!

Good morning! Guten Morgen!
Thank you for the new thread. The picture of Knut is lovely.
I hope you had a nice evening in the theater. My cousine from Ukraine visited her friend in Copenhagen. They were in the theater at "Dead Man Walking". My cousine was impressed.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear beautiful great LADY FATOU!
It's unbelievable that today that's your 60th return of the day.
Wishing you many many more with lots of treats from your
loving keepers and visitors and with the remaining capacity
to get down in the ditch of your enclosure and to climb up again!
That's so admirable!

This is a paparazza-photo of March 27th, 2017:

I am sure all your keepers and lots of your special friends
will celebrate you with big joy - even though weather will be rather nasty!
