Happy Winter season despite the evil virus!

Posted by Mervi on December 11, 2020 at 7:25 AM

Dear friends! Let's enjoy this Winter season despite of the tough time! The Christmas will come, the new year will come even though we can't carry on with our traditions this year. After the Winter the Spring will come, too ....

Chris - Aha, Jagertee! I learn something new every day. :D

RALPH - I know, what you mean - I like to visit Flohmaerkte. :)
You can find old things there, records or puppets, plush-bears...

LUDMILA - den Leuten ist es zu kalt auf dem Brocken. ;)
Hast Du Fotos gemacht oben?

MERVI - eigentlich heisst es Jagertee !
Am Sonntag soll es schneien. :)

Es wird kein Feuerwerk geben ! :D
Ich bin gespannt, ob die Leute sich
daran halten - verkauft wurde nichts.

Yeo - Thanks for the report from the zoo! It's a pity so many people still refuse to follow the 'corona rules'. At least you could meet Katjuscha without crowds around you.

Chris - Jägertee is never wrong! OK, it may be too much on a hot Summer day .... :D

Ralph - We never do anything special on the New Year's Eve. We must try to calm down our cats when the fireworks begin. I certainly hope it will be more peaceful this time. I also hope there will be no fireworks close to the Orsa Predator Center! Ewa and her baby need all the peace and quiet they can get!

Ludmila - I already saw some fantastic photos from Brocken in FB. The snow dressed trees are so beautiful!

We spent a day with hiking to Broken. We met some people, but not very many. It is the winter on the Broken.

The pleasure of shopping, especially in the many "Charity" shops, is finfing a new book, decorative item or even an item of clothing. It is especially true at Christmas when many have a "Polar Bear" theme. London with its store displays and big Winter market was especially fun.
Meeting friends for a meal or drink and then huddling down in a nice warm bus for the two hour journey to Oxford with my radio on thanks to my little phone. Well, maybe next year.
I have never done much on New Year's Eve. My parents liked to watch the Sky News coverage of the fireworks in the capitals leading up to London. I prefer the radio and a glass of something like Whisky or Brandy at midnight.

Ich verstehe die Leute nicht.
Viele halten sich nicht an Ab-
standsregeln - auch die Ge-
schaefte waren sehr voll...
Ich dachte im Zoo wird nur
begrenzt mit Zeitfenster :roll:
eingelassen, nicht so schoen.

MERVI - Jagertee ist eine gute Idee. :D

Hello dear all!

Ich war heute im Zoo. Es war so voll, dass die Leute Schlange standen um ueberhaupt rein zu kommen. Auf den Wegen gingen die Leute im Gaensemarsch. Bei jedem Tier standen sie dicht beieinander. Ich bin immer auf Abstand geblieben.
Nur bei Lady Katjuscha war es etwas ruhiger. Dort konnte ich eine Pause machen. Der alten Dame geht es gut. Sie lag vor ihrer Hoehle und schlief.
Das Wetter war heute herrlich. Die Sonne schien.

I wish you all a pleasant evening!

Chris - The swans are the 'royal clan' among the birds. :D

Ralph - None of us had expected we would be battling against the virus even next year. We can only hope the lock downs and the vaccinations will put an end to this night mare.

Uncle Sergej is busy with his samovar so I guess we will soon enjoy a cup of Jägertee. :D

MERVI - Du magst sie doch.

RALPH - I do not understand the fun with shopping - I hate shopping.
But many people obviously think, that this is nice, to spend time with.
So I miss nothing with the lock down - we can meet friends private. :)

Sie haben in Deutschland noch keine 100.000 Menschen geimpft..... :roll:
Wenn das in dem Tempo weitergeht, sehe ich schwarz fuer den Sommer.

Sisu seems to stay white rather like Kati in Berlin. The three other bears are all various shades of brown.
The days between Christmas and New Year used to be spent shopping and even meeting friends in London or Oxford. This year I am safe and sound inside. New Year cannot come soon enough.
Back in the Summer we still hoped the Virus might have abated before Christmas. Now all we can do is wait for the vaccines to do their work.

Heute war es wieder recht angenehm und nachmittags schaute sogar die Sonne raus.
Letzte Einkaeufe des Jahres wurden getaetigt und danach ging es an den Ruderverein.
Dort konnte ich einen der seltenen Zwergtaucher bei der Arbeit beobachten. :)

MERVI - am Wochenende soll es kaelter werden, vielleicht gibt es dann Schnee.

LUDMILA - ich verstehe nicht, warum NRW die Zoos geschlossen haelt ?
Jedes Bundesland macht was anderes, das ist kontraproduktiv. :roll:

DUMBA - mein Postfach spinnt auch manchmal und spuckt
Mails erst Tage spaeter im Paket aus - sehr merkwuerdig. ;)

Es ist Tee-Zeit - vielleicht mit einem Schuss Rum !? :)

By the way: I first inserted a moon-pic in Back-Door !
Aber das hat wohl niemand wirklich bemerkt... :)

Good morning! Guten Morgen! It's raining transparent small polar bears but I'm still hoping they will turn white! :D

Dumba - You sure have hawk eyes! I never noticed such things .... :D - Your moon photos (in the Backroom) are fantastic!

Ludmila - What a pity Anori can't meet any of her fans but I'm sure she will be celebrated by the keepers.

Ralph - The articles of the guys in Doncaster have brought many British readers to KWM. Isn't it funny how Sisu keeps on being white?! :D

As you could guess today's article in KWM is about SISU, HAMISH, LUKA AND NOBBY! They make such a lovely quartet.

Have a pleasant last Hump Day of this year! Take care!

Did you notice there were exactly 1000 COMMENTS in the last "Die Knuipe"-thread titled "The silly corona season is still on ..... but baby bear don't care!" !?

Good morning, Dears!

to NALLE and BABBELUTE and their mistress and master and the complete families!

Gestern poppte bei mir ploetzlich eine Spitzengardine mit guten Wuenschen vom 23.12.2020(!) up.
Danke Chris.

Gestern Abend war ich im Neubaugebiet bei einer ehemaligen direkten Nachbarin zum Kaffee und zur Wohnungsbesichtigung eingeladen und hatte das Glueck von dort oben einen himmlisch schoenen Mond, teilweise Wolken-verdeckt miterleben zu koennen. Foto koennt Ihr im Backroom sehen.

Ich wuensche allen einen erquicklichen vorletzten Tag im Jahr 2020!
