Dear friends! Although the weather gods seem to be unaware of what season it is I declare the Spring season in our Knuipe opened!

Good Afternoon.

It is 0C and partly sunny. A nice day for a long walk. I have nothing planned for today except relax.

There were 3 bunnies in my backyard this morning, and 1 has returned since. I didn't find any eggs, but I know where to find an Easter Knutsteiner.

Have a nice Easter Sunday.

Easter Greetings to ALL/e

Dear Auntie Dumba,
Dear Auntie Mervi,

Here an impression about the way we are celebrating Easter this year. Bärgit just prepared the setting for a dear niece dropping by with her knusband and Little Samuel born in December.
I was supervising the baking procedure. There is still a rabbit 🐰 and a a Tigerente in store to please another kiddie and two more nieces with a partner knubbby.
I hope the pictures will make it to your places. In one of them I became aware there was something going on indoors and in the other one you will find me protecting the lamb and the carrot cake etc.
Hugs, pawwaves and happy howls
Tommi, Rasband and Bärgit

Sharing the pics and wishes In Knuipe would be bearfectly alright since Bärgit isn't sure to make it in time before the doorbell will be ringing

I am back from my sister, where we had
a good talk and some pieces of cake.
After that we did a short walk with
the dog - its pretty cool now. :)
But in the afternoon we had sun.

YEO - das ist ein schlechter April-
scherz. Schau mal in dein Postfach!

LETI - please have a look in your mailbox!

Heute mache ich einen gemütlichen TV-Abend.
( vorausgesetzt es kommt was Gescheites )

MERVI - its a pity, that many ladies are
alone - not forgetting Corinna in Stuttgart... :(
( we miss Anton )

Ralph - We have many 'widows' now - Vera, Venus, Malik and Giovanna to mention some of them. I hope there will be suitable males for them all when the time comes Accordingly we also have many cubs looking for a home in a year or two .... I'm clueless at the moment!

Chris - I like your rabbit story! I hope you've had a good time with your sister.

Yeo - What a pity the phone call wasn't an April joke. I wish you a pleasant first working day after the vacation anyway.

Knuti-Judi - Happy Easter waves over the pond!

@ Mervi

Ich habe heute einen Anruf von meiner Arbeit bekommen: morgen früh muss ich zwei Stunden früher da sein.
Leider war das aber kein Aprilscherz. :(

Just been reading KWM. I hope that Charlotte will get a new home soon and that Vilma will get a new partner.
I have only heard April Fool stories on the radio. Last year we had the lovely story about a Polar Bear on the Scottish islands.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - we're expecting more snow today. What a 'funny' Easter we have this year. Well, baby bear don't care! :D

Dumba - You're the early bird - or should I say early bunny? - this morning. The breakfast buffet looks fantastic with lots of yammy things - although I simply can't make myself eat that cute lamb. :D - I've seen photos from the north coast of Germany and it really doesn't look very 'Easter like'. The snowy weather is now coming to us.

Ralph - In Ranua there's a 'vacancy' for a male polar bear and the good thing is that this home will be permanent to the bear which ever it will be. There's place for a couple and the papa doesn't have to leave even if there would be a cubbie. As we remember Manasse could stay even after Ranzo and Sisu were born.

Britta-Gudrun - The weather certainly isn't inviting so we'll be spending the day with our feline bunnies indoors. :D

Have you been made April fools yet? :D

In KWM you'll find MoniK's report from the Tiergarten Nuremberg with both sad and happy news.

I wish everybody a very pleasant 1st Easter day!

Frohe Ostern,
obwohl hier im Suedwesten die kuehle Witterung keine Lust auf einen oesterlichen Spaziergang macht.
Dumba, dafuer ist dein Fruehstuecksbuffet umso verlockender und das Osterlaemmchen ist viel zu schoen zum Essen.

Lasst euch nicht in den 1. April schicken!

Easter breakfast table is prepared for you.
Make it yourself comfortable and warm!


Eatable deco in addition:

Bei uns hier haben wir heute ungefaehr 20 Grad Celsius WENIGER
als am 1. April 2017!
In my area it's about 20 degrees Celsius LESS than last year on April 1st!

Thanks for the vid link Chris
I think Sisu and Quintana would be great to start Rostock's new Polarium though Luka and Anori might need a new home from Wuppertal and it would keep them together.

Chris - Rostock would be perfect for Sisu and Quintana because there's a chance for a real Winter every year. This year the Winter is maybe longer than people living there had hoped. :D It's great to see how the keepers want to make the Easter special for their animals.

Dave - After all the work I wish you a very pleasant and relaxing Easter!

Ralph - Uncle Sergej will treat us with his very special Easter drinks. What luck nobody - well, almost noboby - must work tomorrow! :D

Die Osterkarten der Bären sind sehr hübsch! :)

DAVE - gut, dass Du das jetzt hinter dir hast...
Es war sicher viel Arbeit, alles abzuwickeln. :)

Oh bear - in Rostock they have snow.
I phoned with my cousin - and more
snow is predicted for tomorrow. :roll:
Die Armen.

Good Day.

The weather here in Waterloo is more seasonal with grey skies and 5C. The past week reminded me of November with cold and rainy days.

My mom's condo business is finished. The new owners took possession of the unit on Thursday. I still have some boxes to sort through for thrift shops or garbage, but the heavy work is done. In a few weeks we'll meet with her financial advisor to figure out what to do with the sale proceeds. Hopefully things can return to normal in the next week or so.

Yesterday I BBQ'd some chicken for my mom, two of my brothers and my nephew. Today is a lazy day with some minor chores.

I'll join you for an Easter drink.

I wish all of you a nice, peaceful Saturday.
