3irds go beaching along the river Elbe

Beachbirds-Holiday

“Pooh, great to be away from the house, always busy, always things to do. It is too hot to move anyway. Summer in the city! Great that we have the river. Ah, look at that nice boot. Come on Little bird, relax, enjoy!” “Funny Bird, you can’t just leave our friend there. This is not funny. He will melt. You have to help me dig him out again! Where is Duvel when we need him? At least he would have helped me to save Big Bird.”

Duvel and the 3irds celebrate the one-day-winter

Duvelsnow-Blog“Whoa, snow. I love it. Much better than all that rain. Not to mention the stupid toweling afterwards. Come on Funny Bird, throw that snowball, I want to chaaaaaaaaase it! No, not too high. Yes, like that…” “Duvel, I am cold. We have been doing this for hours. I want to go home and eat. Then I would like to have a nice nap under a pile of blankets. Look at my poor bird friends, they are freezing.” “Pah, you couldn’t care less for them. All you think about is food. Come on, one more. This snow will be gone in no time, we have to celebrate this one day of winter!”

Duvel und die 3 Vögel essen Leberwurstkekse beim Friseur

Kapper-B“Duvel, bist du krank?” “Nein, aber lass mich bloss in Ruhe! Meine Trimm-Frau pflückt schon seit einer Stunde an mir rum. Manchmal versuche ich sie mit Schmusen von der Arbeit abzuhalten, aber das klappt auch nicht immer. Jetzt ist sie kurz weg und ich versuche ein bisschen zu schlafen. Ist ja toll, diesen alten Mantel auszuziehen, aber irgendwann habe ich keinen Bock mehr. Meinen Bart will sie auch noch schneiden. Das gute ist, sie hat tolle Leberwurstkekse.”  “Ach das wird schon wieder alter Kumpel. Gleich gehen wir an den Strand und düsen eine Runde. Aber, habe ich das richtig gehört, du sagtest irgendwas von Keksen…?” “Du gefräßiger Vogel! Diese Leckerli verdiene ich mir mit meiner sanften Geduld! Vielleicht gibt sie dir ja auch was, wenn du mal den Schnabel hältst.”

Duvel and the 3irds dance with the leaves

HerfstBirdsB“Duvel, these leaves are like golden snow, not as cold though. Swirly and floaty, nice and fluffy. Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves on the ground. Jupeeee, I am dancing with the leaves! “Silly bird. Yes, let’s run. Maybe I can hunt some squirrels, a there goes a fuzzy tail. Quick, before the boss catches me. She feels sorry for the little tree rats. Bugger, that squirrel is much too fast. Look at it, jumping from one tree to the next. And up it goes. Maybe next time. Let’s dance with the leaves some more…”

Duvel and the 3irds keep on digging

Beachbirds

“Duvel, stop this stupid digging of yours! It is too hot to dig. I am trying to enjoy my shade and you keep on ploughing sand into my face. Why don’t you go swimming?” “Funny Bird, I will not go swimming, I never swim. You are so selfish. Look at you, you are alone under that parasol. Poor little bird is nearly melting in the sun. And where is big bird? Oops, I must have buried him.” “No problem Duvel, I am used to being bashed, at least this sand is nice and cool. So keep on digging please…”

Happy Birthday to Duvel the publisher’s dog!

Happy-Birthday-Duvel“Happy Birthday Duvel, five years as a publisher’s dog, quite an achievement old chap. Oh, Oh, don’t give me that look! Come on Duvel, I know you think, we are a nuisance, but it is your Birthday. We will be really nice today, I promise. We will not steal the bosses cookies, mess up her office or dig through the rubbish for goodies. We will even leave your precious sticks alone, ok? Look at that cute little toy. I wonder how long that will last. But anyway, cheer up. It is a happy day. Look, we even brought you a present. You will love it. You don’t have to share, if you don’t want to…”

Here comes the rain again for the 3irds

3ird-in-the-Rain“Duvel, this is rain, not snow! We want the white fluffy stuff. Apparently you don’t mind getting wet. We do. Can we please go back inside?” “Noisy bird, stop complaining. I got you the bosses umbrella and those boots should keep your feet dry. I am not done marking my territory. Maybe the winter will come after all. Then you can complain about too much snow and being cold. So for now, here comes the rain again…

The 3irds in the Red Chair

The-red-chair-3irds

“This is not fair! Normally we are not allowed to come near this chair, now we have to pose in it. Well, whatever, guess Tanja is the boss. She is ok though, leaves us alone when she works on her books. So let’s be nice, smile guys! Well who are we, what shall we say? We are the 3irds, we team up with Duvel the publisher’s dog, for naughty stuff. My name is Funny bird, I have a big mouth and a lot of nonsense in my head. The big guy here is Big Bird, he prefers to sleep and the tiny guy is a bit scared, he is Little Bird. I must say, the names she gave us are not very creative. Maybe we should give ourselves some new names? Big Bird, how about Dotty?” Funny Bird, would you please mind your own business! We like our names and I would like to enjoy some quiet time in this nice soft Red Chair…”

3birds in a dog’s bed

Mand-Duvel-3irds

“Wow, this has been a tough day, Duvel. The food was all right. But walking around in the rain is nothing for a Funny old bird, like me. Beats me why you keep on sniffing those bushes. Oh well, must have something to do with your territory. I could use some rest now. Duvel, thank you so much for letting us sleep in your bed. It took you some time, to get used to us. I knew we would be friends in the end. You are just as naughty as we are, although you don’t like to get caught. A bit of a clown, I must say…” “Funny bird, would you please shut up, me and your 3ird-friends are trying to get some sleep!”

Summer-time, garden-time, tea-time, naughty-time…

Flattercake“Wow, so much green and look at those beautiful flowers!” “Little bird, don’t be so romantic. We prefer to have a closer look at that cake. It  looks delicious, maybe we can have some. What do you think Duvel?” “Naughty Bird, keep on dreaming. The boss told me to stay away from it. She will be back in no time and I will not take the blame if anything happens to it. She might even bring me one of those dried sausages, which I will definitely not get when you mess with her cake!” “Come on Duvel, we are birds. We are supposed to steal food, we will only eat a few crumbs!” Summer-time, garden-time, tea-time, naughty-time…
