Hello dear Axel Linke, dear Dolphin Team !
We arrived back safely in cold Germany-thank god I am nearly over my fear of flying, I was even looking out of the window all the time and I was impressed with the view!! Was that the dolphins? The luggage is unpacked, the washing maschine is on, Bernd is back at work, Simon is mowing the lawn and is looking after the horses and Tobias has to work this evening. He is trying to make friends with cats after I said to him they are little dolphins with hair and he should give them a chance. Maybe, thanks to Flip, he will lose his dislike of cats.
With much sadness I have come to the conclusion that we have lost the lovely picture your photographer took of us right at the beginning on 04.05. The whole time it was laying on the table in the Hotel room and as I was packing it had disappeared. I searched the whole room, every drawer and bag, but it was gone. I am rather embarassed, especially because Florian‘s family said they had not received one. We were most proud of the picture as we were all together and it was well taken. So I have a little request for you – do you think you could send/mail me a copy? I hope it won‘t put you out and I would like to thank you again for the wonderful time in the Dolphin Park. We were all fascinated and delighted with your commitment, your friendliness and your work. Tobias has never been so well therapeutically cared for as with you, he was so happy with everything! By the way he has gained 4kg in weight.
The rest will certainly follow and Flip has certainly given him new courage. I am looking forward to see how he will develop further and will let you know. As soon as we have developed our films and photos I will try to put them in the Internet so that more people will get to know you and banish their prejudice. For us you were just GREAT and we give you our HEARTY THANKS !!!!
We shall consider your offer of a trainee-ship for Tobias this Autumn. Perhaps you could use Mama too, for things that Tobias cannot co-ordinate. I am an all-rounder and willing to work. But first we shall wait a few weeks to see how things develop. By the way I‘m called Claudia and you can forget the Frau Jehle.
Very best wishes to the whole team from the whole Jehle family,
especially from Tobias and Claudia
