Okinawa, Japan - 28th September 2009

By: JaymeC

I must have accidently stumbled into a Haunted Place. It was so scary even my feathers changed color! Odd, I thought they were supposed to get lighter when frightened... maybe I was too white already! But then I seemed to just reappear here in Okinawa again! Hm... maybe I can go investigate some other haunted happenings. First I decided to take the time to help decorate a bit before Halloween :)
Whew! I'm bushed. Time to head off to Germany, hopefully I make it there in time for some frightful fun!

Oberursel near Frankfurt, Germany - 23rd October 2009

By: AnjaM

I have arrived at Anja's House!

Hi Mommy,

today, I arrived at Anja's house in Oberursel, close to Frankfurt, Germany.

I was met by Ninni the rabbit, Terry the tiger, Bree the giraffe and Polki the duck.


They all admired the lovely postcard I brought from Japan (Japan! Wow! Even Anja was impressed!  :D ), and we all shared the Snickers bars that I brought.


By the way, speaking of Haunted places:

Anja had all kinds of weird stuff lying around. And I mean: WEIRD!!!!

The other TVs said that Anja likes to party, and that she will be hosting a big Halloween party for a lot of people on Saturday!

OMG, haven't I been scared enough?

Frightened  regards

Oberursel near Frankfurt, Germany - 24th October 2009

By: AnjaM

Halloween Party at Anja's House!!!

Hi Mommy,

today, Anja had guests over for a big Halloween party.

Yes, I know, Halloween is in one week, but she always celebrates the October Meeting of the Frankfurt Pet Rat Owners Group with a big Halloween party at her house.

Halloween AND rat owners?  :o Sounds scary somehow....  :)

First, we helped Anja decorate the house.

First, the front door


Then, the hallway



Look at this sticker of rats coming out of the floor! It looks so real!


Then, we hung up all kinds of ghastly stuff



the kitchen door


the doors




"the brain" of the family


the picture gallery



the cobwebs (even the picture of Anja looks quite scary here!)


the pumpkin candles


the witch


and this guy in the cage who hollers "let me out of here!!!" when you press his belly


When the guests arrived, we had to sit still in a corner, because the whole house was full of people.

But we still got a good luck at the yukky-looking Halloween food that was being served (Anja made some, and the guests brought some).

chopped off fingers


dead fingers with pus


blood pudding with eyes


toenail cake




plague macaroni salad


blood punch


two rat cakes



But the very greatest surprise of the day was ... ta daaa...

the Puking Pumpkin!!!!


All of a sudden, we got a big scare! The Grim Reaper came in through the window!!!


But when we gave him a plate full of yukky-looking Halloween food, he decided not to kill us, after all!  :)


What a relief!  :D

So we could continue to have a good time. Which we certainly did!  :D


What a nice party!!!!
And the food LOOKED yukky, but it certainly tasted great!  :)

Oberursel near Frankfurt, Germany - 21st November 2009

By: AnjaM

Terry is leaving for Russia!!!

Hi Mommy,

today, Terry got all excited:

Anja said he is leaving for Russia! Moscow area to be exact! WOW!!!

So, Anja got a Russian doll for his going away picture


and she kept singing a song

"Moskau, Moskau,
wirf die Gläser an die Wand,
Russland ist ein schönes Land,
ha ha ha ha ha - hey!"

What the heck????  :o

So she translated for us:

"Moscow, Moscow
throw the glasses at the wall
Russia is a nice place for all
ha ha ha ha ha - hey!"

Still: what the heck?  :o

So she played us an old song which was popular when she was a young girl:

Moskau Moskau

Ah, well, we are kinda glad we live today!  :)

So, we all waved goodbye to Terry, singing "Moskau, Moskau..."

Bruchsal, Germany - 20th May 2011

By: fam-united

Hi Mum,
I'm here in Germany with fam-united now. AnjaM had a really really bad time last year and she is so sorry, that she didn't get in contact with you and tell you about it and that she didn't send me home to you. I can tell you, that we tried everything to make her smile again, but until today she's still not all herself again.

This week she felt the stength to send me on to my new host in Bruchsal. I'm looking forward to some more updates with her before I will travel on to my next destination.

Greetings, Percy

Bruchsal, Germany - 20th May 2011

By: fam-united

Hi Mum,

after we arrived at Petra's host the other tvs were very happy to welcome us. Our first wish was to take a bath, so we all ran to the bathroom.

Here you see us from left to right:

Louis the rat, Nippy, me, Bree and Polki



I really enjoyed my bath.


Nippy thought, that it would be enough to clean one ear:)


But then she fell head over into the bath.


Polki loved to swim in the water.


We asked Petra, if she never needs a towel after having a bath and she ran to wrap us in the towel quickly.


Because it was warm and sunny, we asked our host, if she could bring us to the balcony. We lied down on a table in the sun - more or less.

Bruchsal, Germany - 22nd May 2011

By: fam-united

Hi Mum,

today nothing really interesting happened, but this evening Petra's son called me to take a look out of the window and get some photos taken there. I'm sorry, but we had to zoom some views, so you can see more of the sky. We thought, we would get some rain, but nothing happened. It is still much too dry.

Hi Mum,

Petra and her husband will get spoiled by her children - it's mother and father day present. And of course we will get spoiled too:)
For breakfast we had bread rolls, jam, honey, chocolate plates and a special treat called Einäpfchen. It was made of ham cubes and egg. I also ate a croissant and drank some green tea and orange juice.

Let's see, what I will eat for lunch:)

Bye, Percy

Bruchsal, Germany - 4th August 2011

By: fam-united

Today we took a photo of nearly all tvs, which stay here right now. There are several tvs of our host: Aaron, Robinson, Schnuffi, Scotty, Cassiopeia and Simba Leon. Then there are the regular guests: BarryO, Bubo, Henry, Sanji, Tuffy, NiliHH, Jack, Chuckle, WillyW. All the others are tvs, which stayed with hosts, who had some problems and no chance to send them on to their owners or the next host, including me. It is the biggest amount of toyvoyagers I ever had around me:)

Bruchsal, Germany - 4th August 2011

By: fam-united

Today the weather is nice - finally. So we had a chance to go out and take a look at the sightseeing places of Bruchsal. Bruchsal was first named in 976, but there are places even older than that. Bruchsal is famous for its beautiful baroque palace, for asparagus and for traffic jams on the autobahn.

Here you see the Damian Gate, which is the entrance to the palace area. You can see art exhibitions there every now and then. It's my friend Henry, who you can see on this photo, because somehow I missed it.


We crossed the street and walked to the fountain in front of the county court. Such a pity, that my host forgot to take a photo of the county court, but you can see it on another photo.


Here you can read a about the fountain:


We crossed the street again and walked into the palace front garden. At first we took a photo of a sign:



The big part of the building is the main building of the palace. On the left side you see the catholic church St. Damian and Hugo, where my hosts go to Sunday service.


Here you can see from left to right: the building with the chamber music hall, the tower of Damian Gate, the little piece of the tower of the jailhouse, then the tree. At next there are two more buildings, which belong to the palace area, between both is the street, which we crossed before. Then the higher building on the right side is the county court. And you can see the little gate, through which we walked into the front garden.


We walked into the church to take a look at old photos. You can see, that the palace was destroyed during World War II. They rebuilt the area, but the church inside is modern nowadays.


In the second last photo you can see a little gate, which leads from the front part to the back part of the palace. We walked through it and took a photo of the backside of the church and the church tower.


There are some fountains on the backside of the palace. Each year there are open air concerts and it's a place for nice wedding photos. Around Christmas there is a second Christmas market at that place, too.


Four guards with halberts are at the line between the fountain part and the palace garden.


We walked to the little pond, where usually you can find many ducks.


At two crossings of the main way you can find a statue at each corner. This crossing shows the four elements water, fire, earth, air. Here you see the fire statue.


This crossing shows the four seasons winter, spring, summer, autumn. This statue is summer.


There are several ways lined with chestnut trees.


We left the palace area and drove to the backside of the hospital. There is a parking place and we stopped to take two photos: one shows the old hospital building with its nice little tower and the other shows the jailhouse.



Then we drove to the Belvedere, which was built as a hunting lodge for Prince Bishop Franz Christoph von Hutten.


Next to the Belvedere and Stadtgarten there is a place, where you have a great view over Bruchsal.


You can see the two towers of the baroque church St. Peter, which is close to my host's house. In the street right in front of me you can see some of the oldest houses of Bruchsal. 80 % of Bruchsal was destroyed during the war, so mostly you only see houses built from 1945 to today.


The buildings in front of me and the white one on the left side belong to the older people's house. Then there is the private catholic grammer school called St. Paulusheim - the big grey building in the far left side.


This nice house also is next to the Belvedere. Nowadays it belongs to a hotel.
