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!

Ralph - This year certainly makes it difficult to make plans but it looks like you had several 'reserve plans', too.

Annemarie - Cheers! :D

Ludmila - Please, forward my congratulations to Katharina! Well done! Of course, Uncle Sergej will serve us his very best champagne. :D

Dumba - Paw waves to the CCC!

Hello friends!
Today our daughter gave a lecture on her dissertation at the university. Afterwards there was an exam. Now we have in the family a Dr. Ing.
Uncle Sergej serves champagne! Cheers

Rostock like the Baerenwalde Muritz is sadly somewhere outside the range of my travel programme soit is great to have Gudrun's lovely report today in KWM.
Thank you Patricia, Ludmila and Mervi for the kind wishes for my trip planning.
Because of possible Covid cancellation I am staging the trips in the following order. Sadly Covid has impacted the train timetables so flights are unavoidable.
Voyage 1 is to Antibes in August (it will only be postponed if travel is prevented,toSeptember or later).
Voyage 2 is Brussels, Berlin and Hamburg, possibly with Bremerhaven as well if trains work. The earliest this can be will be mid September
Voyage 3 is Copenhagen and Aalborg in October/November.
Sadly Doncaster has become too complicated as there are no direct trains and the YWP has a complicated online booking system. Also,the Facebook photographers post daily.
The other casualty of course will be December in Berlin. Memories of the excellent Doro restaurant.

Good day! Guten Tag! Terve!

Ralph - You really have something to look forward to! Hopefully you don't have to change the schedule.

Patricia - A nasty cold and an allergic reaction are certainly not a nice combination. I wish you a speedy recovery and hope you will soon be 'as good as new'.

Ludmila - I guess the cats were happy to have you and Uwe back home again?

Yeo - I'm glad to hear your husband is doing better. How's your knee and arm?

Britta-Gudrun - Is Django enjoying his Biergarten unten den Linden? :D

Gudrun has visited Rostock and you can meet AKIAK, SISSEL AND NORIA in KWM now.

I wish everybody a happy Hump Day! Please, wear a mask and keep the distance. The corona situation is getting worse again.

Hallo Patricia, dann waren unsere Sorgen um dich doch berechtigt, weil du dich wegen der hartnaeckigen Erkaeltung so lange nicht melden konntest. Hoffentlich geht es jetzt langsam besser und deine Katzen strengen dich nicht zu sehr an. Pass gut auf dich auf, der Anstieg der Covid-19 Infektionen in Belgien ist beaengstigend.

Yeo, ich muss mich an immer Einschraenkungen gewoehnen, das ist hart.

Mervi und alle hier, ich wuensche einen erfolgreichen Hump Day!

Good morning dear Knuipians!

Herkules and breakfast are ready.
Enjoy your meal!

@ Mervi
Thank you for your good wishes for my husband. He feel better now.

@ Britta-Gudrun
Ich hoffe, dass es dir auch bald wieder besser geht.

@ Ludmila
Ich freue mich schon auf Fotos von Slovenien.

I wish you all a pleasant Hump-Day!

Good evening Dear All,
That last nasty cold took away a lot of my energy, but the allergic reaction of the medication took all the rest. It is only since yesterday that I am feeling more or less human again and today, I really had to do some cleaning (thanks to my lovely adorable cats) and now I need my bed.
Sorry I know that I am way behind all postings and reports, but I promise to do my best during the coming days.
Nevertheless, Ralph, I truly wish that all your plans will work fine and I am already looking forward to your report.
Wishing you all a good night.

I am booked for 17to 20 August staying at the Marineland Hotel. Dont arrive until evening on 17th.
If it gets cancelled I will simply reschedule.
I may try Brussels and Berlin in September by train. I would so love to see Kati again.

Sorry Mervi, ich dachte der Text "Fotos von: Gudrun" sollte ein Link sein.

Ludmila - Good morning to you, too! I'm keeping my fingers crossed so you can visit the Marineland later this Summer or maybe during the Fall.

Good morning! Guten Morgen!

Dumba - As you've noticed I'm always impressed by the nicely 'flowered' balconies. I wish I had green fingers so I could make my balcony bloom .... well, I have a pelagonium since four years and it really is a faithful friend and doesn't mind if I sometimes forget to water it. :D Your bird photos are really fantastic!

Ralph - It's almost impossible to make any plans now but I hope you can make it to Antibes anyway! Thanks to our friends in Monaco, France and Germany we can enjoy photos and videos of Flocke and her trio in KWM. I'm sure we are all grateful to them.

Britta-Gudrun - I read your comment to Anke's report and I wonder what photo link you meant? I tried to show photos instead of links but maybe I missed one. However, I couldn't find any links in the text .... :D

In KWM you can enjoy the second part of Anke's EVENING WALK IN THE BERLIN ZOO. Please, take your time to read it - you will love each and every word!

Now I wish everybody a most pleasant Tuesday!

We planed the trip to Antibes in June. Now we got a voucher for the flight. I will try to get the flight to Nice with the voucher. Maybe we will do a test after the flight home. We will see.

Wir waren in Slowenien nur an 2 Seen.

Welcome back to the KNUIPE, liebe Ludmila. . . . In SLOWENIEN ward Ihr also. Das muss wirklich ein wunderschoenes Land sein. Zu Zeiten meiner beruflichen Taetigkeit brachte mir mal eine Kollegin von der D-Slowenischen Handelskammer einen Prospekt mit und ich erinnere mich, dass ich total begeistert war von dem, was ich sah. So freue auch ich mich schon sehr auf Euren bestimmt wieder interessanten und toll bebilderten Bericht - wann immer Ihr auch Zeit dazu haben werdet.

Gutes Wiedereinleben im Alltag wuensche ich Euch.

Vorab schon mal was zum Spicken bezueglich SLOWENIEN:

Und Euch ALLEN anderen wuensche ich einen schoenen Tag. Die letzten Tage war es zwar in der CCC meist bedeckt, gestern und nach einem Regentag davor aber - wie aviisert - heiss und schwuel. Das halten wir jetzt aber laechelnd aus; denn am Ende der Woche soll dann der Sommer mehr oder weniger vorbei sein . . Leichte Herbst-Anzeichen sind an einigen schon leicht braun werdenden Blaettern abzulesen (sigh! - Den Herbst - einen schoenen zumindest! - liebe ich ja, aber die Aussichten auf Dauer-Grau fuer wieder ca. 5 Monate verhageln mir dann doch leicht die Laune . . . ;-)

Dear Mervi - I forgot totally to thank you for your kind comment-hearts and words concerning the last portion of the CCC-July-photo-album. As I am the 'home gardener' for my neighbours in the 4th floor actually (during their hiliday-absence), there are even quite a lot more pics to be found in the meantime, seen from this different 'point of view' :-)
Thank you, dear!

Welcome home Ludmila and Uwe. Looking forward to your pictures of La Donna.
Patricia, hope all is well.
A cat in the UK has had Covid caught from its owners. But all are now well.
The UK has told travellers not to travel to Spain so my visit to Flocke may not happen as France is also getting more Covid cases. Thank goodness for the article in Knutis Weekly.
