Hallo am Nachmittag!
Nach getaner Burroarbeit vor den Ferien mal wieder einen Gruß in die Knuipe, falls mein Posting von hier aus ankommt.
Zurzeit kann man die Hitze noch aushalten, heute Nacht sieht es anders aus.
Deshalb kann ich mich dem Motto im neuen thread nur innig anschliessen - bitte keine lange Hitzewelle!

Mervi, ist alles okay in Malmö?
Django chillt manchmal auf seinem Gartenstuhl, manchmal ist er unauffindbar.
Sein Appetit ist auch nur noch maessig - er nimmt ab und ich zu.

Ich wuensche einen guten Start in die neue Woche!

Speedy enjoys the sun. She often sits in the sun. or in the shadow. She goes in the water in the evening.

I wish you a good trip

Knuti-Judi - I guess you're spending most of your day in the garden?

Ralph - A Summer cocktail sounds great! I wonder how Uncle Sergej's version of it will taste .... :D

Dave - I wish you a pleasant trip to Muskoka!

Good Afternoon.

Beautiful day here in Waterloo. Went for an early morning motorcycle ride. I am finishing my packing and will be leaving for Muskoka in about 45 minutes. I should be back home Wednesday.

Have a good week.

Annemarie - What a nice morning you had again with your team. Uncel Sergej, Raspi and Wolodja must be in a very good shape after all the sporting activities. I really envy them! :D - I'm sure Master Ludwig was happy about the popcorn after his little nap. It was a nice surprise for him. - Maybe the 'Schweinemedaillons mit Pfifferlingsrahm und handgeschabten Spaetzle' is a bit heavy on a hot day but it sounds so delicious that I can't resist .... :D - Thank you so much for the delightful Sunday bulletine! The code was hard to crack but I think I managed! - Have a nice Sunday!

FROM ANNEMARIE: Horrido - Morgen-Bulletin zum Sonntag

Frischer Herkules-Kaffee, Samovar-Tee und zahlreiche Croissants stehen fuer uns zur Verfuegung.

Nach erfolgreicher QC und Food Safe Befuellung sowie einem staerkenden Fruehstueck ging es raus in den Knugarden. Onkel Sergej leistete uns auch Gesellschaft und so entschieden sich die Herren Eisbaeren fuer ein paar sportliche Uebungen, in diesem Fall Tischtennis. Das ist ja bekanntlich eine der Lieblingssportdisziplinen unseres Onkel Sergejs.

Ludwig verzichtete auf die Position des Balljungen und blieb lieber bei mir am Pool, wo wir es uns auf den bequemen Liegen gemuetlich machten. Schnell doeste er ein und schnarchte ein wenig. Ich bat die Quietschies doch etwas ruhiger zu sein, damit ihr grauer Freund ein erquickendes Morgenschlaefchen abhalten kann. Nun, sie bemuehten sich redlich, aber so richtig Ruhe kehrte nicht ein.

Ich holte derweil die Popcorn-Maschine hervor und bereitete viele Eimer voll leckeres Waldmeister-Popcorn zu. Und als alle meine Freunde von ihren sportlichen Aktivitaeten wieder zurueckkamen und auch Ludwig munter war, da gab es erst einmal eine suesse Popcorn-Ueberraschung sowie erfrischende Kaltgetraenke fuer die ganze Rasselbande.

-----

Unser Speisen-Angebot fuer den Brunch im Food Safe:

Geroestetes Bauernbrot mit Ruehrei und Minze,
---
bunter Sommersalat mit Wildkraeutern, Haehnchenstreifen, Spargel und Senfdressing,

Das KBT wuenscht allen Knuipians einen entspannten Sonntag.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - it's Sunday again and the sun is shining.

Ralph - As you may already know I'm a 'daughter of darkness' and have nothing against the dark evenings and nights! I had enough of the bright - and hot! - Summer nights when I lived in northern Finland. :D - Good luck with choosing the photos! It's always difficult but in many cases 'less is more'. I'm almost crying when I just have to leave out some good pics from my reports. :D

Ludmila - How's Speedy doing now that he's having a 'holiday' in the garden?

Yeo - Thank you for the yammy breakfast! - I wish you already a 'soft landing' in the working life! :D

In KWM I have a nice surprise for you. We have a new friend - Nel Hoekstra - in the Netherlands. She has visited WOLODJA AND OLINKA IN BLIJDORP and I have just published her report!

I wish everybear and everybody a very pleasant Sunday! Hopefully the heat wave's train is delayed .... :D

Good morning dear all!

Herkules and breakfast are ready. Enjoy your meal!
🍞🥐🥖🍯🍳🥓☕☕☕☕☕

Ich erinnere mich daran, dass wir im vergangenen Jahr genau zu Mittsommer in Cornwall waren. Das wurde dort überall gefeiert. Es war bis 23.00 Uhr hell, obwohl Cornwall doch ziemlich südlich liegt.

Morgen muss ich wieder arbeiten. Zum Glück habe ich Spätdienst, so daß ich nicht ganz so früh aufstehen muß.

@ Mervi
Special greetings to you and Vesa! 🧡💜💛💚

I wish you all a beautiful Sunday!🍀🍀🍀🍀

Dave Hope your plans go well. Sounds good.
I am having a quiet evening in with all the bears.
Midsummer is sad in one way as it starts the countdown to
dark afternoons and evenings.
I am trying to sort through my Aalborg photos. I took far more pictures and want to choose the best ones
Will toast everyone especially Vesa

Teddybärenmutti - Even Malmö looks like a ghoast city with empty streets during the Midsummer weekend. :D

Dave - It looks like you're having a well planned day! Have fun with all the planned activities! :D

Good Morning

Mervi - Great news about Vesa. .

The first "official" days of summer have been terrific. It hasn't been too hot or humid so the air conditioner is not needed for now. It cools down quite a bit at night which is perfect for sleeping.

I have already washed and hung the laundry and now I will take off to the Farmers' market to pick up some summer sausage. Tomorrow I head up to Muskoka for a few days to complete the deck railings that were built two summers ago. It should be a 3 day job, but you never know for sure.

I will save the packing for tonight so my afternoon will be relaxed. A walk, motorcycle ride, beers with friends at 5:30PM and then a BBQ steak are on today's agenda.

Have a nice relaxing Saturday.

Lieber fluffiger engel!

Allen einen schönen MittsommertagWetterprognosen sagte, dass heute sehr heiss sollte sein. NÖÖÖ. kaltes Wind und nur +17. Also drinnen bleiben .
Mittsommer menu in Finnland und auch in Schweden ist.
Minikartoffel, Butter, Schinken, Lachs, Sill und viel gruenes Salad.
Als Nachtisch Erdbeeren und Schlagsahne.
Dies ist auch Tag der finnischen Fahne, also ueberall blauweiss Fahne..
Viele Leute wollen Mittsommerfest auf dem lande feiern. Hier in der Stadt ist unglaubliche Stillheit. Kein verkehrlärm..
Prosti an Sommer.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - the sun is shining so all the Midsummer BBQs can be take place as planned. At least it looks so at the moment. :D

Ludmila - It's good to know the four girls are together again. I wonder if there will be more later on in Emmen.

Ralph - Congratulations to the increase of the number of polar bear family members in your house! :D I hope they had a warm welcome from the 'old' inhabitants! :D

In KWM you can meet TONJA AND HEARTHA again - this time in Gudrun's report. I wish everybody a cosy Saturday!

The sun is shining and I have been in the Antiques Market adding more Polar Bears to my collection.
It is great news that Emmen are going to keep all 4 girls together.
I will try and look in later on on the Knuphone, if not I will be back in the Library on Monday
All the best
Ralph
