Die Knuipe

What an unusual Spring this is!

Dear friends! In the previous thread I was wondering what the Spring would be like this year. Now we know it's most 'odd' due to the covid-19 virus. The world isn't the same it was only a few weeks ago. I hope we will all stay in good health and keep an optimistic mind. Better times will come - sooner or later!

Hello dear all!

Happy Birthday to you, dear Knuti-Judy!

@ Mervi
Thank you about the news of Maliks cubbies!

Wir hatten gestern Abend auch tierischen Besuch. Immer wieder beehren uns Igel. Bei unserem Nachbarn war ein gro�er, schöner Reiher zu Besuch. Sie haben einen Teich mit Kois, den der Reiher ganz spannend findet. Da hilft auch ein drübergespanntes Netz nur bedingt.

Morgen wollen mein Mann und ich einen Ausflug machen. Irgend etwas Knie freundliches. :)

I wish you all a pleasant Friday-evening!

Our Momo started to go out. Katharina thought that he would not go far away. Yesterday in the evening we searched a long time for Momo. He walked through the neighbour's garden. As I called for Momo, Minka and Sydney came to me and were the whole time next to me. If I call for Minka, she does not appear :)

Good morning! Guten Morgen! It looks like Miss Spring has retired and left the scene to Ms Summer. :D We have a very sunny and warm weather now.

Dear Knuti-Judi - Happy birthday to you!

Britta-Gudrun - Your energy almost took my breath away! :D I wish you a wonderful day with your neighbour! - Small cubbies are so adorable and we love them but it's wise of the zoos to 'hold their horses' with the breeding.

Ludmila - I guess everything's fine with your cat gang.

Ralph - When I published Jeanette's photos I also thought of your photos of Nuka and Quilaq at the glass window. :D

As you can guess today's contribution in KWM is about MALIK AND HER TWINS. Jeanette Johnsen has taken very sweet photos. There will be more later on ....

I wish you all a great Friday and a good start of the long weekend. In Sweden Monday is an ordinary day but I guess in many countries Monday is a holiday.

Guten Morgen mit einem Herkules!

Happy Birthday dear Knuti-Judy, schade, dass du hier nicht mehr schreibst!
Hoffentlich bist du wohlauf.

Ich freue mich auch fuer Charlotte, die in der Gesellschaft mit Blizzard nicht tragend werden wird. Fuer Blizzard ist die junge Lady vielleicht eine Herausforderung, man wird sehen. Warum man Kap wieder verlegt, leuchtet mir nicht ein. Im Moment sollte man den Zuechtungsgedanken etwas reduzieren, weil in zwei Jahren eine Menge Juntiere vermittelt werden muessen.

Ich war gestern sehr fleissig - als meine eigene Putzfee! Der Mai hat mir eine richtige Hochform geschickt, wer haette das gedacht. Heute mache ich sogar Fahrdienst fuer meine erkrankte ehemalige Nachbarin.

Mervi, ich hoffe, dass Daenemark die Grenzen auch bald wieder oeffnet.

Ludmila, Ralph - I think this was a good solution - especially for Charlotte. I hope all the bears will be happy and satisfied with this new arrangement!

Mervi, Ludmila
I will rush to KWM to read more.
I am not sure how this works out I suppose Karlsruhe are happy to have a good natured bear like Blizzard even if he cannot have cubs Charlotte will find him a friendly partner.
Victoria coped with Lloyd in Bremerhaven. I am puzzled why Dirk Stutzki the keeper in Hamburg does not give her the same attention he used to in the old TV shows when Fanny was still there.

Thank you Ludmila and Britta Gudrun. You are right that the article is looking at the worst case.
Mervi Polar Bears really cheer me up. Tina was a fine lady and today we have another super mum in Freedom.I am surrounded by my Polars and other soft animals.
I will look in later on.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! The sun is shining and the world is still going around! :D

Ralph - I'm sure Tina had a good life in Mulhouse. 34 years is a very respectable age for a polar bear - even in a zoo. I like to think of her wandering on the ice fields now. - Travelling will be more difficult now. I don't know when we can cross the bridge to Denmark. Swedes - and people living in Sweden - are not welcome anywhere and I can understand that. The Swedish 'strategy' against corona has been and is a disaster!

Chris - Thank you for showing us the lovely photo of Tina.

Ludmila - I wish Speedy a pleasant Summer time in the pool! :D

Britta-Gudrun - I hope you have got 'acquainted' with your hair now. :D

WOLODJA'S AND FREEDOM'S TWINS HAVE NAMES NOW. If you're curious to know what the names are - please, check KWM! :D

I wish everybody a most pleasant TDT!

Guten Morgen!

Ludmila, ich wuensche eine erfolgreiche Teichsaison fuer Speedy!

Ralph, ich denke auch, dass in diesem Arrtikel der worst case extrem uebertrieben wird - also abwarten und Tee trinken und im europaeischen Raum wird sich diese Panikmache hoffentlich nicht bewahrheiten.

Good morning! Guten Morgen!

Unfortunately Uwe and I are not really young, but I think we will try to travel again.
In the article at the beginning is very important message: nobody knows, how the things will be. The rest of the article are only speculations. I would not take this article seriously.
Mervi
Today the sun is shining. We let our Speedy in the pond.
Herkules is ready.
Chris
Das Bild von Tina ist schoen.

This article explains why I probably will not be travelling any rime soon It means that KWM and the Knuipe will be vital even more than ever.
For younger and fitter travellers like Ludmila and Uwe the restrictions will be manageable. But for me they remove any pleasure and make it more realistic to stay at home.

A beautiful tribute in French to Tina from the Zoo where she was clearly well loved. May she enjoy the ice fields and rest easy

I am sad about Tina. She was an old bear, but it is not easy to let the old friends go.
I think Uncle Sergej will make some drinks for us.
