The caretaker was on the run

On Saturday I installed David's new lamps above his new table. Concrete ceilings are not so fine for drilling a hole. But in the end he got a fine table-lighting that we tested with a caretaker-dinner.

holmes is here

Maybe you went outside, headed east and looked up to the zenit at midnight. Then I am sure you wondered about a new star that shouldn't be there: The red lines show you the star-sign Perseus, the blue circle are the Plejades and the green circle ist new:
Perseus

The thing in the green circle is the comet "Holmes" that amazingly increased its lumination and can be seen with free eyes:
Komet Holmes

The last picture is a close up, the shimmery thing is the comet:

Graz day 5

Woke up early, kids and breakfast. Yesterday I decided to take the train at 10:35 and booked via internet place and ticket. Lizzy brought me to the station, it poured basins of water. The train was filled like a tin can of sardines. Even my booked place was occupied (from a nice girl). 5 hours later a change to the regional train and then back home again. Big welcome from my cat, about 30 minutes caressing then feeding. Well, that was a too short trip to Graz, but very fine.

Graz day 4

Early wake up today. Went shopping with Lizzy and Martin. Fine dinner and then a repair job at my grandmas bath. Done. Oliver took me up and we drove to Rabnitz. Coffee and cake, children and playing, talking and then dowsing for water in the childrens room. Talking about this and that. Back home I played another "Settlers of Catan" game with Lizzy and today I really didn't win. Unfortunately. Computing with Martin and burning a DVD with pictures. Well, that have been my short hollidays at Graz.

Graz day 2

Woke up with 2 children in my arms. They were not sleeping, they had 100% power. So I stopped the process of sleeping. Their grandma came and we had a fine dinner. In the afternoon I did a walk through Conrad. Bought some interesting books. Met my grandma and had a fine talk. In the evening I played settlers of catan with Lizzy and had a fine evening. Now I am tired enough for sleeping.

Wet but not rainy, warmer than in Tirol. Talking about this and that, school and router, boys and girls, strings and ... bicycles. Fine to be here.

cat-talk

I think after 3 years I have learned some cat-talk vocabularys in cat-language:
mow-waooo: Feed me!
meeeeeeoo: Give me goodies!
muooh: Clean my toilet!
mrrrhh: Fine, you're here!
muw: yes.
mh: no,
meehhh: let me out!

*cat staring at me* - "hungry?" - mh - "toilett?" - mh - "Wanna go out?" - muw - "let's go" - muw! *off we go*; funny.

Krach im Hause Gott

On friday evening I was in Imst and saw the act: "Krach im Hause Gott" from Felix Mitterer. I liked it. It was in the old spinning mill theatre of Imst.

cats never sleep

I was wondering if my cat ever sleeps, so I tried to take a foto when he did. But he didn't. Look at his ear:

final grillage

On saturday was the last day of Rettis visit. First we slept long. Then I teached Klausi chess. And doing that I remembered that I was tought chess when I too was at the age of 5. We went shopping, took a swim and grilled a CUG meal. Ginger meat and oriental wedge and minced meat with spice. It was a very good finishing of this visit. Afterwards we played "Saboteur" and had much fun.
