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!

Du hast eine komplizierte Aufgabe mit den Fenstern. Wie putzt du die Fenster von Aussen, wenn sie nicht auf gehen? Ich hoffe alles is gut gegangen.

Good morning! Guten Morgen!

Ralph - I'm really glad I can publish so many nice reports in KWM - some of them really exclusive, too.

Dave - 'It would seem that lumber and bicycles are the new toilet paper craze.' I just had to laugh. :D - You've been very active unlike me who only wants to 'be'. :D

Dumba - I'm lifting my hat to you! Walking in the heat is very exhausting for us who aren't so young anymore. I'm leading a 'little life', too, but luckily KWM and the Knuipe keep me occupied so there's no risk for getting bored.

Ludmila - An ice Herkules is always welcome!

Annemarie - Please, be very careful with the window cleaning! It's better to have dirty windows than broken bones!

Today I had the great pleasure of publishing Anita's report from the ZOO AUGSBURG in KWM. Again I'm impressed by the great amount of nice zoos in Germany.

I wish everybody a pleasant Friday and a good start of the weekend! Stay chilly - be cool!

Guten Tag zur Mittagszeit!
Ah, endlich eine kleine Abkuehlung mit morgendlichem Regen, man wird ja so bescheiden.

Dumba, Besuch von Freunden ist immer eine Wonne und da nimmt man auch gerne kleine Anstrengungen in Kauf.

Annemarie, tja grosse Fenster haben ihre Tuecken und im 5. Stock enden Fensterstuertze auf jeden Fall tragisch. Pass gut auf bei den Verrenkungen nach aussen!

Ludmila: Herkules trinke ich gern mit. Ich brauche extra Power, denn ich putze Stueck fuer Stueck meine vorwiegend ueber 2 m hohe Fenster. Im 5. Stock sind sie zum Teil gar nicht zu oeffnen. Und 2 runde Fenster kann man aushaken, was sehr abenteuerlich in dieser Hoehe ist. Eine Haushaltshilfe habe ich ja leider noch nicht organisieren koennen. Da hatte ich es in G. leichter in dieser Beziehung.

Auf gehts und allen einen schoenen Freitag.

Puuuh - Now, it's getting really very hot and humid in the CCC. Anyway, yesterday I went for a little walk around the corners not too far from here after a most yummy breakfast. I had it in a nearby Cafe/Bistro together with a former school mate who comes to see me one or twice a year (she also lived in Berlin with her husband for 3 years but is back to the south. We have always a good time together. After the some thousand steps we made (of course 'in snail speed') I was completely finished/done, had to wash all my clothes and to take a loong shower myself immediately in order to get back at least some energy. . . . However, it was a very nice day in my rather monotonous 'little' life :-)

An additional pleasure for me was it to find your kind and detailed feedbacks,
dear Mervi and dear Britta-Gudrun. Thank you ever so much!

Keep good care of yourself, dear Dave, AND anybody else who never stops to be sooo active, no matter what kind of weather we/they do have. . . . . I am full of admiration for your never getting tired/exhausted/bored . . . whatsoever . . . and in addition you seem to come up to the expectations and/or even (secret) wishes of your relatives and friends to the best. Chapeau!

This morning started with a little breeze and seemed to be quite refreshing . . . but short after it started again to be vaporous and oppressive . . . It's again difficult to breeze and the heart reminds constantly it exists ;-) . . . . Not really a reason to complain - I love the warm summer days! (however: not the heat);however, it's a bit exhausting without having really done/achieved something . . .

Take good care of yourselves and have a pleasant day whatever the weathr might be at your end/s :-)

Good Evening.

I am stopping in to say a quick Hello. I'm heading back to Muskoka first thing Friday morning until Tuesday. I returned home late Monday and have been busy all week. Another Covid test, visiting my mom and searching for building materials for garage repairs. It would seem that lumber and bicycles are the new toilet paper craze. The weather has been fabulous with 30C, sunny and no humidity and the occasional rainstorm. Summer is flying by too fast.

I wish everyone a pleasant weekend.

What a lovely report in KWM.
I am safely home. So far the thunder and rain have avoided me. It is getting a bit cooler, but is still hot indoors.
Had a good day with apple and cinnamon porridge and a capuccino for breakfast and roast chicken and salad for lunch.

Britta-Gudrun - I think Petra's 'home zoo' is Wilhelma but she visit Schönbrunn quite often. I'm, of course, very glad to have a new reporter.

Mervi, toll - Videokonferenzen sind jetzt das non plu ultra zu Coronazeiten!
Haben wir in Schoenbrunn wieder neue Reporter? Danke fuer den Bericht. Nora ist auch eine bildhuebsche Baerin.

Good morning! Guten Morgen!

Ralph - I wish you a pleasant day outdoors!

Yeo - Thank you for the report from the zoo. The animals are wise staying indoors or in the shadow on a hot day. Well, at least we can always rely on the wasps! :D - I hope your knee is OK today!

Ludmila - Oh my, I forgot Anchali's birthday but I'm sure Ludwig remembered. :D It's hard to believe the sunshine girl is already 8 years old. - I guess your plants are very happy now!

Britta-Gudrun - I have invited Thor and Esther to a video conference! :D

Chris - Congratulations! You finally had rain.

Our friend Petra Ballon has visited the Tiergarten Schönbrunn and met FINJA AND NORA. Her report is now in KWM and you can even see photos of the cute cheetah kittens.

I wish everybody a pleasant TDT! Please, have patience, be cool - better times will come even if it takes a while!

Es ist hat ein wenig abgekuehlt, weil der Himmel bewoelkt ist.
Geregnet hat es leider nicht.
Mervi, ich hoffe, Mister Thor ruettelt noch etwas an den Wolken, damit Madame Esther ihren Teapott in Aktion bringen kann.

Yeo, du warst sehr mutig mit deinem morgendlichen Zoobesuch, hat sich das Knie schon wieder etwas erholt?

Ich wuensche einen schoenen Tag!

Hello dear all!
Good evening!

Heute war ich trotz der Hitze tatsächlich im Zoo. Ich war kurz nach 9.00 Uhr dort und bin gleich zu den Pandas gegangen. MengMeng war drinnen und hat mit einem ihrer Kinder gespielt. Das andere hing draussen auf dem Baum und schlief.

Heute waren nicht so viele Tiere zu sehen und auch Katjuscha lag in ihrer Hoehle. Die einzigen Tiere, die staendig praesent waren, das waren Wespen.

Ich bin gegen Mittag noch einmal zu den Pandas gegangen, aber jetzt standen viele Menschen dort an.
Es war auch sehr heiss geworden.

Es war ein sehr schoener Zoobesuch, den mein Knie aber sehr uebel genommen hat. ;)
Jetzt hoffe, dass ein Kuehlakku das Knie wieder gnaedig stimmt. :)

I wish you all a pleasant evening!

Indoor again today.
It was lovely to be able to join Ludmila and Uwe in their holiday in Slovenia and enjoy some fresh air.
Tomorrow I will be out and about again.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! The heat is still on - once again I must say how happy I am being a senior citizen who can choose what she will do. Nothing at all! :D

Ludmila - Thank you for the second report from Slovenia in KWM! Thanks also for the Herkules. I'll have the icy version of it.. :D

Britta-Gudrun - We were also expecting a visit of Thor but he didn't show. Maybe today ....

I wish everybody a cool Hump Day! Maybe we can imagine we're swimming in the beautiful Lake Bohinj? Please, check KWM and you'll know what I mean.
