Dear friends! It's time to prepare ourselves for the Spring season. Maybe some snow flakes will still fall but soon Mother Nature will be painting the grass and the trees green and making the flowers bloom. Welcome Spring with birds, bees and butterflies!

GOOD EVENING

We were lucky again, and in the afternoon
the sun came out, although it´s very windy.
So I was at the river for a time, after my
shopping tour successfully was finished.

I ch bin an der Bar für einen Drink! :)

Ralph - I hope Tonja's baby girl will have an unique name so Hertha doesn't sound so bad. Only it won't be another Qannik or Nanuq!!!

Knuti-Judi - Happy TDT - your 'almost Friday' - to you! :D

Hallo, dears...

Britta-Gudrun,

According to this the name Hertha comes from a Centic word for Strength.

That would suit this gir

Good day! Guten Tag! Dear fluffy angel - it's far too late to wish a good morning now. :D

Dear friends! I had to run some errands - or in my case I had to LIMP some errands :D so I'm very late today.

Britta-Gudrun - It's very grey and rainy here, too. Luckily the parking lots are close to the shops we had to visit - otherwise we would have been soaked.

Ralph - Hertha Berlin want to be god fathers to Tonja's daughter and suggest her name would be Hertha. Because the baby seems to love ball games I suggest she would be called BALLerina! :D - I hope Lynn and her baby will welcome you in the Copenhagen Zoo and I also hope you can see Nöel and Nord swimming above your head in the tunnel. It's quite an experience! - Good luck with all your travel plans!

Chris - I hope your shopping round went smoothly and you found everything you wanted to buy.

As some of you have already seen there's an article of the cubbies in the Zoo Sauvage de Saint-Félicien in KWM. Cuteness alarm is hereby announced! :D

I wish everybody a most pleasant TDT!

Ich wünsche allen einen angenehmen

Part of me thinks that it would be easier to stay at home and rely on Knutis Weekly! But the excitement of being able to say goodbye to Nuka and Qillak in Aalborg and even if I don't get to see Lynn's cub (she may well not be out) there are Noel and Nord and lots of other animals in Copenhagen.
I will be in the Library for the last time on Monday. I am not sure whether I will be able to report live this time on my Knuphone.
April in Berlin of course is tangled up in the mess of you know what! I am hoping that in the next couple of weeks Parliament will make its mind up and negotiate sensibly with the EU. There are some positive signs emerging that MPs have ruled out a "No Deal" and may either go for a soft Brexit or a Referendum.
Frustrating though it may seem to everyone overseas, the issue is complex one for the English in particular. Put simply, we liked the Common Market (EEC) but people got increasingly fed up with the European Union's political ambitions. Well, we shall see.

Guten Morgen!

Hier sind wohl einige andere genauso muede wie ich.
Die Fruehjahrsmuedigkeit greift scheinbar um sich.

Bei dem stuermischen und regnerischen Wetter bleibt man eh besser im Haus
und macht es sich bequem.

Yeo, gut, dass dein Mann die Dachreparatur unfallfrei durchfuehren konnte.
Am Dach sollte man als Laie aber sehr vorsichtig sein.

Nun schaue ich nach neuen Nachrichten im KWM und wuensche einen
schoenen Donnerstag - bei was auch immer.

Knuti-Judi - Did you have maple sirup to the pancakes?

Britta-Gudrun - We are lucky to have reporters and photographers in many zoos now.

Chris - You had a wonderful afternoon with your flying friends again. - Oh yes, the baby bears keep me busy but this baby bear don't care - it's so fun! :D

Yeo - Thank you for the beveridges! - How nice of your boss to leave early .... :D

GUTEN ABEND

Heute war es sehr warm und
es gab wieder Schmetterlinge
und Hummeln zu bewundern.
Leider bleibt es nicht so.

Ich bin an der Bar für einen Drink.

MERVI - Du hast viel zu tun mit
den vielen Eisbärbabies. :)

Hallo am Nachmittag,
jetzt funktioniert das Internet wieder

Knuti-Judy, der Karneval in Amerika unterscheidet sich wohl erheblich von dem in Deutschland, aber den Aschermittwoch gibt in beiden Laendern und deshalb ist hier wie bei euch an Aschermittwoch alles vorbei.

Yeo, bei den alten Leuten gehen die Uhren sowieso anders und jeder Tag wird neu erlebt - viel Spass!

Mervi, weitere Eisbaerenbabies sind herzlich willkommen!

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - I'm late again but I've been busy in the editor's room.

Oh bear, the polar bear cubbies sure keep me very busy, too! :D There's something happening all the time and I try to keep an eye on all of them. :D Of course, it's a great pleasure to watch them grow and luckily they are all doing fine so far!

Yeo - Hmm, I can understand your husband wanted to fix the roof himself. No young workers needed! :D - I'm sure your party will be a great success. I hope it won't be too exhausting for you and your collegues.

Chris - Please, forward my best greetings to all your feathered and maybe even furred friends you meet during your bike tour. :D

Britta-Gudrun - Hopefully it will be easier for you to write here later today!

In KWM you'll find four sweet tiger kittens in Monika aus Berlin's report. In the afternoon there will be more cubbie news from ... well, let it be a surprise! :D

I wish everybody a happy Hump Day!

Hello dear Knuipians!

Obwohl es schon fast Mittag ist, stelle ich noch Frühstück und Herkules hin. Guten Appetit!

Gestern machte sich mein Mann daran, das Dach zu reparieren. Ich wollte das nicht und habe gesagt, er soll einen Handwerker kommen lassen. Auf jeden Fall einen jüngeren Mann, der da auf dem Dank herumklettert Das hätte ich wohl nicht sagen sollen. Mein Mann ist gleich auf die Leiter gestiegen und jetzt ist das Dach wieder in Ordnung.

Gestern war ich nach der Arbeit noch zum Zahnarzt. Es war furchtbar. Er hat mir fast den Kopf abgerissen. So ein 🐵🐒

Heute haben wir auf der Arbeit Fasching für die alten Leute. Simeon hat mich gefragt als was ich mich verkleide. Ich sagte ihm, dass der Fasching für die alten Leute ist und ich dort zum Arbeiten hingehe. Das seine Oma zum Fasching geht um zu arbeiten, fand er eigenartig. Wir Mitarbeiter tragen jeder ein Hütchen. Die alten Leute auch.
🎈🎉🎊

Ich wünsche euch allen einen schönen Tag!

Teddybärenmutti - It's the thought that counts! :D - Nyt on sitten kevät. Nuuskamuikkunen on saapunut Muumilaaksoon. :D

Ralph - I'm especially glad about the good information from the 'cubbie zoos'. :D
