Dark nights and hopefully golden Autumn days

Dear friends! Since I love the dark evenings of the Autumn I decided to show the Knuipe in the 'evening dress' in this thread. I hope you like it!

Hello folks!
We had a wonderful summer like day. We jogged in the morning and were in the city in the afternoon to eat the ice cream
I mag CSU auch nicht.
I do not know whether it is a good thing to legalize marijuana. The people, who need marijuana because of pain, can get it per prescription.
I have the picture of Willi in the living room.
What do we want to drink tonight?

The positive thing for the users of Marijuana is,
that now they have a legal source and no more
contact with criminal dealers - by the way, the
government will earn money from the taxes. :)

Have lots of reading to do with the threads here and in KWM.
Forgot to thank Mervi for her editing my little pics and also for Jeanette's Aalborg pics. Every time I look at Ms Muddy Paws on my phone, little Sis, I am amazed at how she looks now

In the UK it looks as if we will try and sort out the medical side first through the National Health Service but even that is taking time.
Loved the Hudson video and you bear story

Chris, Mervi - It doesn't bother me that it is going to be legal. What bothers me is that it is being rushed through before federal, provincial and municipal laws and procedures can be put in place to regulate it. It leads to an unsafe environment.

Basically what I am saying is that they should take the time to do it right.

The good thing about legalising it is that now there can be proper medical research done on the drug.

Britta-Gudrun - I hope you're having a cosy Sunday with Django.

Knuti-Judi - When you write of gardening I always picture Willy supervising you. :D

Dave - To legalize marijuana has it's negative and positive sides. In many cases it's even used for medical purposes and then it's right that people can get it legally.

Chris - I can understand it's very annoying when you have to try several times before you can get in here. I wonder if Uncle Sergej knows any nerds .... :D

We had incredbly nice and summerlike weather. :)
So I was on tour - but with me many, many others.

DAVE - in many states of the US the stuff is legalized,
like in the Netherlands - its a good solution of Trudeau!

ANNEMARIE - ich habe den Zander mit Pilzen gewählt.
Die Pilzsaison lässt noch aufs sich warten, der Wald ist
einfach noch zu trocken.

MERVI - I´ll check KWM soon. Sometimes I can post
here, sometimes not - its strange. ;)

Mal sehen, was sie in Bayern gewählt haben.
Ich freue mich, wenn die CSU viel verliert. :D

I wish everybody a cosy sunday evening !

Good Morning,

A nice sunny, 10C day here in Waterloo. I have some yard work to get today and then I am pretty well caught up with most of the winterising chores. I still need to shuffle the garage around, but that can wait a few more weeks.

This afternoon a friend and I are going to check out an open house. He is interested in a new semi-detached house that was built this summer and the location is close to Waterloo's uptown. I'm always curious to see the new building techniques and finishes. But I think the price will be too high.

In 3 days marijuana will become legal in Canada. The Trudeau government is forcing the issue even though all the legal problems have not been settled. The police don't even have a reliable instrument for road side tests on suspected high drivers. I don't use the stuff and have never tried it, but if they are going to legalise it, do it right. Trudeau is just another politician thinking about re-election in 2019. He is a disappointment.

Mervi - It is nice that you can get out for some walks. Taking advantage of the great weather is a good idea, because we all know the winter weather presents it's challenges for all modes of travel.

Have a nice, relaxing Sunday.

Die Hitze macht mich heute richtig muede und traege.

Mervi, deshalb habt ihr euch richtig fuer einen Morgenspaziergang entschieden.

Annemarie, ja, Renovierungen ab einem gewissen Alter koennen einen ganz schoen anstrengen und deshalb hattest du mitleidvolle Zuhoerer im Knudgarden. Flohmaerkte sind weder mit noch ohne Floehe mein Ding.
Ich nehme heute den leichten Imbiss Sandwich mit Ruehrei, Pfifferlingen und Kraeutern, weil es schon so spaet fuer ein ueppiges Mittagessen ist.
Dressingroom war mal wieder eine witze Codefrage!

Macht es euch allen sonntaeglich gemuetlich!

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - we're having a beautiful October day so we took a long walk this morning - well, long with our measures ....

Annemarie - It's not so easy for a bear or an elephant to understand why we call some markets 'flee markets'. Well, now they know we're not bying those small rascals! :D - I'm glad to read your team could cheer you up after all the troubles with the workers. I hope their work will soon be finished! - The menu looks again so tempting that I had to 'negotiate' with myself a long time before I settled for the 'Senf-Ei "Knuipe de luxe" mit Erbsenstampf und Roesti'. Of course, I just have to try this 'Knuipe dish'! I wonder if Madame Mimi has made it .... :D Thank you so much for the bulletine! What a perfect start of this day in our favourite hangout!

Ludmila - We never know in advance how the polar bears will be getting along but let's hope it will say 'clic' when Noria meets Sizzel - and later even Akiak!

Dave - Your video is great! Yes, it's hard to believe Hudson is already seven years old but it's good to know he has grown to a gorgeous polar bear male. - I haven't Windows 10 either, I still use Windows 8 and hope I can keep using it until it's time for a new laptop.

Yeo - I wish you as pleasant working day as possible! Thank you for the breakfast!

In KWM you will meet Malik, Nuka, Quilaq, a lovely lion family and cute red panda twins in Aalborg. Our friend Jeanette kindly gave me permission to publish her photos even in my magazine.

I wish everybear and everybody a sunny and cosy Sunday!

Horrido! / Morgen-Bulletin: 

Es passte mir gut, dass Yeo bereits fuer frischen Herkules-Kaffee und Croissants gesorgt hatte, denn ich war erst spaet zum Breakfast- Dienst eingetrudelt.

Raspi hatte schon den Samowar fuer unseren Tee klargemacht. Ludwig war aktiv am Testen der vegetarischen Essens-Komponenten. Die Jungs sind einfach unbezahlbar!

Ich erzaehlte, dass ich am letzten Sonntag noch mit Sherwin auf dem Flohmarkt war. Wir mussten alle schmunzeln, hatten mir einst Raspi und Raspi massenhaft Floehe aus ihrem jeweiligen Tierpark angeboten, als ich ihnen schon einmal von einem Flohmarkt-Besuch berichtete, was besonders in Berlin eine beliebte Sonntags-Beschaeftigung von Sherwin ist. Nun wissen die beiden Kollegen ja Bescheid, dass es auf solchen Maerkten nicht um diese Plagegeister geht, sondern um Troedel (obwohl ich manchmal denke, Floehe gibt es dort auch :D

Bei einem ausgedehnten Personal-Fruehstueck berichtete ich Raspi und Ludwig von meiner Renovierung zu Hause. Sie waren voller Mitleid, denn sie merkten, dass mir diese Handwerker-Arbeiten allmaehlich zum Halse heraushaengen. Ein wenig Trost von meinen beiden tierischen Kollegen tat mir gut.

Unser Speisen-Angebot fuer den Brunch im Food Safe:

Sandwich mit Ruehrei, Pfifferlingen und Kraeutern,

Good morning dear all!

Today I'm a very early bird. :D
Herkules and breakfast are ready.

Good Evening.

Thank you for the birthday wishes.

Nothing special today. The usual chores, some beers with friends and now I'm BBQing a steak. I started my furnace up for the first time today. 3C is kind of chilly.

I'm having trouble with my computer these days. Mr. Gates and his crew are not supporting Windows 7 anymore so that means things are slowly grinding to a halt. My printer is suddenly not communicating with the computer and I am getting a constant parade of error windows when I access my emails, Google, videos and even my music or picture libraries. I will likely be upgrading to a new computer next month and Mr. Gates has finally gotten his way with Windows 10. My other option is to re-install Windows 7, but it takes so much work that I might as well switch over.

I am including a link to a video that I made of Hudson on my first visit to see him. Hard to believe that he is 7 years old. My avatar was taken on the same visit.


knuti-judi - Your bear sighting reminds me of my friend on Manitoulin Island. One night in May he heard some strange noises, so he stuck his head out the kitchen door. He spotted a black bear trying to get into the garbage box. He ran outside, in his underwear, yelling and waving his arms. The bear took off into the woods.

Have a Good Knight.
