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!

Hello friends!
We are on holiday. Today we visited the zoo Nuernberg with MoniK. It was great.
Hugs all around.

Ralph - I'm glad to hear that KWM is so important to you. I hope there are even others finding my magazine interesting - especially in times like this. - What a pity I never could see Inuvik as a baby bear but hopefully I'll be able to see a teenager sooner or later.

Yeo - Thank you for the lovely card with Pit and Paule!

The latest problem here is that even when we are allowed to travel it is going to be difficult if not impossible to get travel insurance. This is awkward because everywhere faces the risk of a sudden lockdown if there are more cases of Covid locally.
So, I am going to need Knutis Weekly because although I have Facebook you are the only person who edits the stories across such a wide range of places and authors. I only have a certain allowance on my phone each day for Internet.
So, Mervi you have to keep going for me.
I was so hoping to get to see Kati one last time.

Dear friends! Now I'm back and the editor's room is calling. There's so much new stuff now that the zoos are open again. Of course, the baby bears have the lead roles but you're going to meet even some older friends during the next few days.

As many of you have already noticed today's contribution in KWM comes from Monika aus Berlin. You can see a charming report of Pit's and Paule's adventure. :D

Good morning! Guten Morgen! After the 'spoiling day' things are back to normal again so I must run some errands today. :D

I'm overwhelmed by all the kind birthday greetings here, in KWM, in the Backroom and in FB. Thank you also for the nice emails!

I'll be back later today. Now I wish everybody a most pleasant Friday!

Guten Morgen!

Nanu, sls Langschlaeferin bin ich heute dennoch die Erste.

Mervi, ich hoffe, du hast das neue Lebensjahr gut angefangen und mit einen Lieben ordentlich gefeiert. Ein bisschen Sonnenschein war bestimmt auch dabei, denn das Wetter war besser als die Vorhersage.

Annemarie, dein Geburtstagsbild ist sehr schoen und wie jugendlich Madame Nini trotz ihrer elf Kids immer noch aussieht.- sensationell!

Ich wuensche einen schoenen Tag mit der Aussicht auf das Wochenende!

Dear friends! Thank you all for your kind birthday greetings to me! They are all very much appreciated. I will comment them more tomorrow. I'm having a peaceful birthday with my little family and both Vesa and the cats are spoiling me with all kinds of things. :D

I wish you a very pleasant TDT! See you later - or tomorrow!

Onkel Sergej und seine Goettergattin Nini haben mir eine Geburtstagskarte fuer Dich zum Hochladen gegeben (im Back Room). Sie haben ein paar Bluemchen fuer das Geburtstagskind!

Hopefully this morning was a cool sunny one for you with happy feelings!
May Corona further curve wide away around you (and all you other lovelies as well!). Wishing you a most pleasant day among YOUR deares lovelies VESA, KNimmi and KNalle(r)!
Should you get a little free time from accepting birthday calls and post and 'Corona-distance-apprpriate-KNUTi-style hugs', you may like to have a look into the 'Back Room' :-)

Auch Euch ALL/en wuensche ich einen wunderschoen sonnig-warmen, aber nicht zuu heissen Sommertag!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Mervi. I am sure that Vesa, Nalle and Mimmi will spoil you today. Wishing you all the best.
Yesterday night, we had lots of rain. I don't think that I will have to give water to the plants during the coming week (unless we get another heat wave). But later in the aftrnoon, sun came back. Because of the rain and the colder temperatures, my cats are also mostly inside, but Fleur is taking her morning walk.
Yesterday, I went back to the office to clean-up my desk. It was a bit of a strange feeling to be there after 3,5 months, but it was nice to see my colleagues. However, on my way back home, I realized that I certainly do not regret of being retired. First thing that everybody was saying was that I am looking so relaxed.
Need to do some cleanng now in the kitchen. See you all back later today.

Lass dich ordentlich feiern Zuhause und hier in der Knuipe.

Ich hoffe deiner Nachbarin geht es wieder gut.
Let us hope for the better times
We got the rain in the afternoon. Minka is inside now. I hope she will stay at home in the night.
Bei uns ist kalt und nass geworden.

Chris - I know people want to be outdoors as much as possible.

Ludmila - Minka knows the best place for a good night's sleep. :D

Britta-Gudrun - You really have been a good Samarian today. Your neighbour is lucky to have you living so near!

Ralph - I only hoped to see Nöel's baby in Copenhagen but I guess she will not be a cub when I have a chance to meet her 'live'. - By the way, one of the Swedish channels started to show 'Cheers' again and just like our Knuipe it's a place where 'everybody knows my name'. :D

The weather is a bit cooler now but I hope for more rain. The nature really needs it. Maybe tomorrow.

A gloomy few days in England. It is increasingly clear that because we have a lot of urban centres with poor housing and families from many cultures crowded together. So we are likely to see lots of local "lockdowns" at short notice. Doncaster is one such area.
With no cure or vaccine in sight, Covid rather like Typhus and Dyptheria before World War 2 will become a feature of life.
My travel.plans remain purely on paper.
My main regrets are not being able to visit Kati and Flockes three cubs. Other places can always be visited later.
I dont like using Apps on my phone for tickets as they can often fail or the phone run out of life at a crucial moment.
Oh well at least I can surf at home (battery charger gets a lot of use)
