Dear friends! This Summer will be as 'strange' as the Spring was. I hope the sweet memories of the Super Summer 2007 will help us to stay in a good mood!

First of all I would like to wish PATRICIA a speedy and sustainable recovery/health. Good that at least for the time being there is no more need for sorrows because of your belaoved cats. Such hopefully you will really be able to take YOUR time and to relax!

For one more time (and I am afraid it's not the last one) I am a 'Gefallenes Maedchen'. This time in the middle of the 'Hauptstrasse-sidewalk after having left a flower shop. On same knee + shinbone (left) as already in October 2019 (those inner wounds are still not cured by now!) + elbow + knee plus anklebone right leg . . . . and in addition Iam very amused about my usual 'summer-elephant-like 'water-legs'! . . . THANK YOU! . . . Anyway, I am still lucky because the result could have been worse. At least nothing is broken and I could avoid to hurt face and/or head! . . . two days ago I couldn't really move anymore and yesterday it took 2 hours(!!!) to leave my very low bed. That was a time of despair as you can imagine I guess. . . . But today I am back to more optimism again; however, I am pretty sure that was not my last 'accident' for the rest of my love.
Whether 'guilty' or not, I've become an all-time-oldy-'SCHUSSEL' . . . grrr

Vielleicht muss ich's mal der Katze gleichtun!? ;-)
'Beine hoch und Lesen' ist im Moment sowieso die angesagteste Beschaeftigung!

Aha! - Die Gene sind also schuld : ;-)))))

Chilly-grey weather is the weather also in the CCC
(unfortunately still without right rain). But for me personally at the moment it's ok !

Despite of GREY and one or another mishap and/or sorrow don't get desperated
rather enjoy any second of YOUR day, Dears ALL/e!

Good morning! Guten Morgen! The rather chilly weather seems to be here to stay. Well, I certainly don't mind! :D

Britta-Gudrun - Every Summer I manage to catch a slight cold but this year the symptoms have been very 'light'. I hope you will avoid the cold, too!

In KWM there's a different kind of article of bears today. It's about the BUDDY BEARS! I have always loved these cute figures that pop up almost everywhere in Berlin. :D

I wish everybody a pleasant TDT! Please, keep the distance - wear a mask. Let's chace the virus away!!

Guten Morgen!

Ich bin schon wieder der early bird heute, aber immer noch im Pyjama, also nicht wirklich fit.

Das Wetter in Deutschland ist zweigeteilt: noerdlich viel Regen und im Rest der Republik nur Sonnenschein und Trockenheit. Wer moechte mit mir tauschen?

Patricia, fein, dass es Babbelute wieder besser geht und dir wuensche ich auch ganz schnell gute Besserung mit der Erkaeltung.
Ich dachte eigentlich, dass man sich durch das viele desinfizieren nach Einkaeufen und aehnlichen Aussenkontakten seit Coronazeiten auch nicht mehr so schnell Erkaeltungsviren einfaengt.
Ich praktiziere diese strengen Hygienevorschriften wegen meiner COPD schon seit 3 Jahren und hatte seitdem keine Erkaeltung mehr - toi, toi, toi!

Passt gut auf euch auf und bleibt gesund!

Patricia - I'm so glad that Babbelute is feeling better and eating well. - I wish you a speedy recovery from the cold. I hope it's 'only' an ordinary cold.

Chris - The albino wallaby baby is adorable! - The gurus have predicted chilly and stormy weather during the next few days. It remains to be seen if they're right - for a change .... :D

Ralph - The article of Nana's tongue really is interesting. - People living in southern Sweden are allowed to travel to Denmark from Saturday. However, you need all kinds of 'papers' before you can cross the border so we will wait for better times.

Patricia Good to hear that Babbelute is eating. Lots ofwarm drink and honey for the cold.
Chris we have rain in Oxfordshire but the heat will be back at the weekend.
Ludmila and Uwe hope you enjoy Slovenia. Are there any Polars there?
Mervi Love Nana's new tongue.
Had my hair cut on Monday for the first time in three months

Good afternoon, Dear All, from a wet and chilly Everbeek.
Babbelute is finally home again. Her daily medication is now increased, but luckily her appetite is back.
And I am feeling awful because of that darned cold.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Oh bear, it's already noon - again ....

Ludmila - I hope you and Uwe are having a good time in Slovenia - or maybe you're already somewhere else?

Britta-Gudrun - I hope the remaining baby bird will make it. I'm sure your 'bird aid' is very welcome! - It looks like we all are late sleepers .... :D

In KWM you'll find an interesting little article of NANA'S TONGUE. :D

I wish everybody a happy Hump Day! Please, keep the distance - wear a mask!

Mervi, ich warte weiterhin sehr geduldig.
Heute war es wieder etwas waermer. Das ist gut fuer die Mauersegler. Bis jetzt ist keiner aus dem Nest gefallen, aber leider je zwei Eier aus zwei verschiedenen Nestern. Also kann dort hoechstens jeweils 1 Jungtier wohnen, denn mehr als 3 Eier legen Mauersegler selten. Eine Box mit Heimchenvorrat habe ich schon freigelassen. Nun zirpen sie vergnuegt im Garten!

Dear friends! I'm very late today but some days just pass by so quickly ....

Patricia - I hope the medicines will help Babbelute. I wish the cat lady all the best.

Britta-Gudrun - I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hope Madame Esther will finally accept your kind invitation to 'tea for two'.

In KWM you'll find two articles today. The POLAR BEARS IN COPENHAGEN had a nice cool surprise and Anita has reported about QUINTANA TRAINING FOR THE MOVE.

I wish everybody a very pleasant Tuesday!

Guten Morgen!
Nach einer sehr kuehlen Nacht mit 9 Grad scheint nun die Sonne am Himmel mit vielen grossen wattebauschartigen weissen Wolken, es sieht also nicht nach dem heissersehnten Regen aus - leider.

Patricia, nach deiner vielen Arbeit in den letzten Tagen hoffe ich, dass deine Erkaeltung schnell verschwindet und vor allem Babbelute schnell geholfen werden kann und die anderen Senioren-Katzen gesund bleiben!

Good morning Dear All,
Last days have been pretty busy. On Friday, shopping tour and cleaning. Later in the afternoon, picking white and red currants. On Saturday, preparing this fruit and making marmelade and in the evening to the restaurant (first time in more than 6 months). On Sunday, it was the traditional ironing and cooking session. Then, I also noticed that Babbelute was very quiet. So, yesterday the vet came and took her with for a blood exam. And what I feared came out: thyroid is too active again. Her daily medication will be adapted. He will bring her back home later this afternoon.
And on top of that all, I have a serious cold.
Just like most of you, it has been very windy and rainy here. And actually, yesterday I was thinking of re-starting the heating but then in the afternoon, the sun came.
Wishing you all a relaxing day.

Yeo - It looks like your knee is much better now. I hope the walk wasn't too exhausting.

Dumba - It's very windy here, too, so outdoor activities are out of question. Well, I don't mind staying indoors. I can still be active in many ways. :D

Britta-Gudrun - Let's hope Madame Esther has sisters that can come to you because it seems to me she has come here to stay! :D

Annemarie, deine Baerenparade im Back Room ist toll. Ich glaube, Berlin tut dir gut - so sagte man auch mal von Knut: Knut tut gut, wer wollte dem widersprechen?

Yeo, ja du bist sehr diszipliniert und bekommst dafuer auch hoffentlich die Belohnung.

Dumba, die Bauwut in deinem Wohnumfeld tut mir leid, wenn sie sogar den Horizont verschandelt.

Mervi, Madame Esthers Tea pott ware mir sehr willkommen!

Kommt gut in die neue Woche, die hier zwar kuehl, aber nicht windig ist.

The WIND seems to be everywhere in these days. This morning temperature was so pleasant that I thought it to be a good idea to spend some time out in the sun at 'Suedkreuz' which is 'umzingelt' completely with buildings under construction in the meantime. SIGH! It's a shame: one will no more be able to see wonderful sunsets and/or their glows or wild clouds coming up from the horizon - no right horizon anymore! My intention was to read a new book, which showed to be impossible already after a short time due to too heavy winds. Anyway it was nice there despite of the construction all around.

In the meantime - as promised - I did watch Monika's video of TONJA and HERTHA (the 'Riesenbaby'!) and I agree fully that it's more than charming. The two are right 'Goldschaetze'! Thanks to Monika for the making of the video and to Annemarie-Berta for bringing the link of it to us!

Yeo: von Dir koennte/sollte ich mir wirklich eine Scheibe abschneiden.
Du bist offensichtlich so eine 'kleine Heldin', die hoechst diszipliniert Schmerzen nicht als Ausrede gelten laesst und sich ihrer eigenen Gesundung voll stellt! Gratulation! Ich hoffe, dass Du bald auch die schoene Quittung fuer all Deine Anstrengungen bekommen und Dich wieder mehr oder weniger voll und uneingeschraenkt und vor allem ohne Schmerzen bewegen koennen wirst!

Erfreulich finde ich natuerlich auch, dass schon wieder ein Treffen in einem 'Auswaerts-Zoo' zwischen Nicht-Berliner/inne/n, aber durchaus 'Zoo-Berlin-Fans', aus verschiedenen Staedten in einem Zoo auÃ?erhalb Berlins stattgefunden hat ( IN Berlin ist natuerlich auch IMMER schoen! :-)) )

Geniesst diesen Tag und Eure ganze gerade begonnene neue Sommerwoche und giesst wie die Weltmeister - auch die Strassenbaeume!

Hello dear all!

Here in Berlin is the weather windy, but sunny. Good for washing. :)
In the morning I was walking for a half hour.
Now I'm down.

I wish you all a pleasant Monday and a good start in the week!

Good morning! Guten Morgen! We had a storm last night and it's still very windy.

Ludmila - Thank you for the report from Nuremberg! I wish you and Uwe a very pleasant vacation in Slovenia.

Dave - I hope you could have the test and can soon visit your mother. - I hope your sugar maple tree will make it.

Annemarie - Thanks for the link! How wonderful to see Hertha in action.

Leti - Thanks for the information about your zoo.

Ralph - I'm so glad I have always something to do with KWM and the Knuipe. Now that the zoos are open there's a lot of stuff to be published.

Britta-Gudrun - I don't understand what happened to your comment. Hopefully it was just a 'mishap'.

Dumba - Thank you for the kind and encouriging words! I guess the weather in the CCC is rather like the weather here in Malmö although here it's 'kalt-grau'. :D

In KWM you can meet VERA AND NANUQ in Nuremberg in Ludmila's report. I wish everybody a very pleasant Monday and a good new week. Please, keep the distance and wear a mask. It helps us to get back to the normal again!

Hello friends!
Yesterday we arrived in Bled in Slovenia. The city is beautiful.
It is always the same, if we start to do something, we think it would not take a lot of time, but mostly the work take a long time.
Besuch im Zoo am Abend ist super.
I need a cold drink tonight
