Terve! Hello!

I have written the second chapter for my book. This time it’s about ‘BBB’ (Big Ball Business)! Oh bear, what a great book it will be! I wouldn’t be surprised if I won the Polaritzer Prize!!

Terve! Hello! I have some great news for you! Being a well mannered polar bear isn’t so easy so I’m writing a book. I thought a ‘Guide to Good Table Manners’ would make a good start! Most bears in my age already know how to eat their food with great elegance but my younger friends probably need some good advice.

Terve! Hello! It’s your pal Sisu calling again. This Summer started with an extremely hot weather but after the heat wave everything’s been normal. In other words it’s been rather cold and rainy – just like the Finnish Summer usually is. Well, at least it hasn’t been snowing …. 🙂

Nach fast 49 Arbeitsjahren habe ich es endlich geschafft, ab 1.7. bin ich Rentner und wohin zog es mich, natürlich zu Flocke. Heiss ist es im Juli aber Flocke ließ es sich nicht nehmen uns zu begrüßen.

Terve! Hello! This is Sisu calling from Ranua! We’ve had some really hot days here in northern Finland so I’ve spent most of the time in the water. Even though there’s no ice in our pool the water is quite refreshing anyway!



Sisu is waiting for the Summer

Terve! Hello! It’s me – your pal Sisu writing to you again. I’ve been told that the Summer should be here now but I’m still waiting. I hope it will come by bus or by train because that kind of travelling is more environmental friendly than flying. So I’ve heard! The Summer can leave the flying to the birds!



Ice breaker Sisu is happy again!

Terve! Hello! It’s been quite a while since my previous newsletter but here I am again! I must confess I’ve been a little down after the separation from my mama but now I’m feeling fine!

Mit den Tierentdeckern, der Jugendgruppe der Tiergartenfreunde, fuhren wir in die ZOO Erlebniswelt Gelsenkirchen. Es war die erste mehrtägige Fahrt der Jugendgruppe und und einige von uns Ehrenamtlichen durften dabei sein.

Morgens um 5.30h war Abfahrt und gegen Mittag kamen wir in Gelsenkirchen an.

Fünf Tage an der schönen Cote d´Azur mit Flocke und Rasputin, das ist für mich der beste Frühlingsanfang.

Wenn ich dann auch noch so von Flocke begrüßt werde und beide Bären zusammen sind, ist alles gut.



Sisu is not amused!

Terve! Hello! I’m sorry but I must begin this newsletter telling you that I’m not amused. I’m not amused at all! The snow has vanished! This time of the year we usually have lots of snow in Ranua but this is a crazy year. I want the nice years back!!
