I was surprised, that the japanese
guy climbed on top of the podium.

Ich sage schon mal Guts Nächtle,
es kommen noch einige gute Filme.

Chris - I watched the ski jumping in Oberstdorf. I always follow the Four Hill Tournament. It looks like Eisenbirchler is the best of the Germans at the moment but Geiger and Freitag can also fight for wins. My favourite Wellinger had a bad day and didn't make it to the second round.

Ralph - I'm sure you had a great time today.

Ludmila - Could you send wind and rain to us?

Bei uns ist heute sehr windig gewesen. Ich musste gegen den Wind beim Laufen kämpfen.

They will leave soon for London.

LUDMILA - ich habe heute auch viele Vögel gesehen.
Allein fünf verschiedene Meisen-Arten. Die Tiere sind
munterer, weil es wärmer ist. :)
(Eichhörnchen hab ich ebenfalls gesehen)
Und endlich haben wir wieder frische Luft !

MERVI - hast Du das Skispringen geschaut ?

Meine Schwester hat sogar mal eine Weile
im Tierheim gearbeitet - zusätzlich zu ihrem
Job (ehrenamtlich). :)


Beinahe ein Pasch...

Ludmila - I'm sure the birds appreciate the food you give them. I would like to do the same but unfortunately it's impossible.

Let's raise our glasses to Risto who today reaches the respectable age of 70 - although he's, of course, still young at heart!!

Happy Birthday, dear Risto!
I hope you have a good day with Ralph.

Wir haben nicht weit von uns eine Fachhochschule. Sie heisst jetzt anderes. Diese Hochschule ist stark gewachsen, deswegen haben wir viele junge Leute in der Stadt. Ich nehme an morgen wird es laut werden. Heute ist noch ruhig.
Bei uns sind in diesem Jahr sehr viele Vögel an der Futterstelle. Ich fülle fleißig nach.
I am sending the hugs to you too
We can drink a glass wine on Risto! Cheers

Chris - Giving home to abandoned cats is our way to rescue animals. We are 'Four Paws' in mini formate. :D

Yeo - I hope you're having a cosy afternoon and evening!

Knuti-Judi - Mimmi and Nalle send their best new year greetings to Al, Rose and Caroline. They are a bit envious because your gang doesn't have to put up with the noisy fire works.

Hello dear all!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you, dear Risto. I wish you a pleasant time together with TBM and Ralph.

Dear Mervi, thank you for the special birthday - site for Ralph. I will it read later.

Heute hatte ich Frühdienst. Das Wetter ist regnerisch und ungemütlich. Deshalb wird am Nachmittag gefaulenzt. 😁

I wish you all a pleasant Sunday!

The fog has gone - we have wind and 10°C today. :)
What a relief ! But no rain predicted for tomorrow....

MERVI - my cat Lori also lived in the shelter.
Lea came to my house, after my neighbour died.
So I saved her from the animal shelter. too. :)

Today I plan a tour to the wood nearby..
I´ll take my glass with me, to watch the birds
in the bird refugee there. :)

I wish everybody a pleasant sunday ! :)

LUDMILA - last year my cats slept
in the Sylvester night - they both
are a little bit deaf... ;)

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - today is the second last day of this year!

HAPPY 70TH BIRTHDAY TO YOU, DEAR RISTO! There's a birthday page for you in KWM.

Ludmila - You had a wonderful time in Rostock! Oh bear, you even went ice skating!

Chris - I'm always glad hearing that people offer homes for dogs and/or cats from an animal shelter. The abandoned sweeties deserve a good loving home.

Britta-Gudrun - It's good to know Django can cope with the banging quite well. - Again we can hope the next year will be a peaceful year for everybody but unfortunately we know how things are in many parts of the world.

In KWM you'll find a combined NEW YEAR + BIRTHDAY PAGE by RALPH.

I wish everybody a cosy Sunday! Now I'm off to play ice hockey and then I plan to go skiing - everything done on the sofa!! :D

Guten Morgen am letzten Sonntag im alten Jahr!

Die letzten Tage vor dem Jahreswechsel verbringe ich rueckblickend auch in Dankbarkeit fuer eine friedliche Zeit, die vielen Menschen leider nicht vergoennt ist.

Auf die Silvesterknallerei koennte ich gut verzichten, denn auch mir tun vor allem die Tiere leid. Unsere Anka war immer ein Nervenbuendel und ich bin viele Jahre mit ihr von 11.30 - 0.30h im Auto auf einsamen Landstrassen hin und her gefahren, um ihr den Stress zu ersparen. Gestern hoerte ich in einem Bericht, dass das wohl viele Hundebesitzer machen, weil mein Mann damals meinte, ich sei bekloppt.
Django kann und darf ich nicht einsperren - er hat irgendwo ein Plaetzchen außerhalb des Hauses und kommt eine halbe Stunde nach der Knallerei voellig entspannt wieder zurueck.

Ich wuensche einen geruhsamen Sonntag!

LUDMILA - we always celebrated sylvester with friends in the Vogelsberg.
But since I have the cats, I better stay at home. You can visit parties the
whole year - and at new years eve there are too many morons on the
streets. Maybe in Wolfenbüttel its more quiet. ;)
The aquarium in Stralsund is breathtaking and the old City so beautiful!
How are your cats cope with the fireworks in the Sylvester night ?

MERVI - my sister now has two dogs, a larger one and a small + a cat.
They are best friends and all three came from the animal shelter. :)

Hello friends!
We had a wonderful day in the zoo Rostock. Then we drove to Stralsund and visited Meeresmuseum and Oceanium. Our hotel was direct at the Christmas market. Today in the afternoon we visited a Christmas market and skated on the ice. There were many people, who enjoyed Glühwein and the other food.
Mervi, Chris
We always celebrate New Year's Eve. As we were young, we danced with the friends. Then we celebrated with the children. Last years we celebrate at home. In the midnight we go out and make fireworks with the neighbours. We buy some skyrocket, gold and silver rain.
Your cookies were delicious

Chris - I hope your sister's dog won't be too much disturbed on Monday evening. It's great he gets along with cats, too! :D

Ralph - Congratulations to the new bargains! - Please, forward our best birthday greetings to Risto who will be 70 years tomorrow!
