Dark nights and hopefully golden Autumn days

Dear friends! Since I love the dark evenings of the Autumn I decided to show the Knuipe in the 'evening dress' in this thread. I hope you like it!

Britta-Gudrun, Chris - Let's enjoy Uncle Sergej's 'Snow special' and wish sweet Aron once more a very happy birthday. I'm sure the little guy was more than happy about the birthday presents. :D

Noch schnell einen Gruss zum guten Abend,
dann geht es ab auf die Couch.
Mervi, es war ein angenehmer Besuch im Buero,
und viel netter als das Wetter.

Das Geburtstagsgeschenk für Aron ist klasse!

ARON had a most fantastic birthday gift - it's been snowing in Tallinn today! :D Evi has posted two short videos which you can now see in KWM.

Chris - Maybe the birds are hiding in a warm place ....

LUDMILA - ich war einkaufen und dann am Main.
Heute waren kaum Vögel zu sehen.

MERVI - I´ll check Arons birthdaypage soon. :)

Ich wünsche allen einen guten Wochenstart.!

Ralph - What you wrote about airports today is so true! I hope everything will go well with your flight!

Britta-Gudrun - I hope you're having a good day whatever you're doing!

Ludmila - I hope this kind of weather came to stay at least for a while. A couple of minus degrees and frost on the ground is perfect!

Knuti-Judi - Has the snow melted away now?

Hello friends at coffee time!
Ich werde berichten :)
As we visited Vera and Charlotte, I thought on our visit together. It was a wonderful visit.
You have the wonderful weather today. We are not lucky. It is grey and cold.
Was machst du heute?

Thank you Mervi for the special about Aron. I would love to see him come to Doncaster as a friend for Nobby and Nissan.
Wolodja in Berlin is looking really good and I think the Zoo does deserve some credit for this, even if his toys had to come from the Tierpark. Both he and Kati have looked excellent this year and are always interested in what is going on around them.
Not long now until I try to get to Berlin. I must be honest and say that I find travelling increasingly stressful. So much can go wrong, and even when it does not, I am not happy until I am safely where I need to be. Fortunately with the Internet I am able to do so much from the comfort of the Library and even my Knuphone.
To be fair to the Airlines it was not too long ago that I could only afford to fly if my office were paying the ticket. Also, the aircraft themselves are very efficient. On the downside, airports have become ghastly shopping malls with overpriced shops and eating facilities where several hours are forced upon you rather than the hour that it used to be, unless a flight was delayed. On the other hand, I have to admit that Terminal 5 is quite airy and pleasant, and if expensive, breakfast is usually a worthwhile start to my journey.
All of which makes the Knuipe and KWM more vital than ever. 2019 does not look to be a very good year for Britain, and may make my travels even harder.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - today there's a little frost on the ground and the sun is shining. Everything looks very nice!

Ludmila - How great you could meet Moni in Nuremberg!

Today we have lots of birthday bears again - Ewa, Hope, Lloyd, Qilaq, Nuka and Aron - just to mention some of them.


I wish everybody a good start of the new week!

We were in Jena and in Nuremberg. On Sunday we spent a wonderful day with MoniK in the Tiergarten.

Chris, Teddybärenmutti - Uncle Sergej has prepared a Sunday toddy for us.

Dave - I totally agree with you about the crowds with sharp elbows and all the maniac drivers on the roads. :D - Enjoy your football evening!

Knuti-Judi - You seem to be a good friend with your fire tablet already! :D

Good Morning.

knuti-judi - Happy Thanksgiving.

The cold November rains are here in Waterloo. The snow that fell two weeks ago is just about gone. Tuesday and Wednesday we actually hit a low of -18C. I wish it would just stay cold..

I have been busy around the house fixing my icemaker, bathroom drain and leaky toilet tank. Unfortunately my icemaker is kaput, but I found an identical replacement on Amazon. It lasted 20 years, so I can't complain.

This weekend is full of "Black Friday" shopping deals. It is an attempt to keep Canadian shoppers from flocking to the United States, but the exchange rate between our countries' currencies is taking care of that problem. I tend to avoid the craziness. No deal is worth standing in lines filled with rude people, not to mention the psycho car drivers.

Tonight I'll join some friends to watch the 106th Grey Cup. It is the championship game for the Canadian Football League(not soccer). Pizza and snacks are the foods of choice.

Have a nice peaceful Sunday.

We had the mild temperatures today and a glimpse of sun. :)
so I was out for while - but the ways are muddy after the rain.

ANNEMARIE - ich probiere mal das Curry-Süppchen. :)

MERVI - I´ll check KWM a bit later in the evening!

I wish everybody a pleasant sunday afternoon. :)

Annemarie - I'm sure Raspi was delighted by the belated birthday celebration. It's always the thought that counts! The fantastic birthday gifts were appreciated, too - that's for sure! :D - I hope I can crack the code because I'm hungry and the 'Koenigsberger Klopse mit Kapernsauce und Salzkartoffeln' sounds like a good choice! - Thank you so much for the lovely birthday bulletine!

Britta-Gudrun - We really must be very observant watching Babylon Berlin. It's easy to 'get lost'. :D

Yeo - I hope the movie was good!

Gudrun's report from the zoo is today's contribution in KWM. I wish everybody a cosy Sunday!
