I have 9 old, wrinkly friends, who are retired or semi-retired. Five of them all used to work together and the other four are husbands. They didn't want to lose touch when they retired so they decided to meet and have lunch or dinner when it was their birthdays. However, they got disenchanted with buying a present every time, and decided instead to give a Birthday Bear (thats me.) I get passed from one birthday person to the next each time they meet. The fun part is, that I get to be dressed differently each time, usually to reflect some aspect of the recipient's personality or life.
PS: Two of my wrinklies, Chris and Bob, have gone on a working holiday tour around Australia so they don't celebrate with us very often.

I'm really upset with my human, she has just ignored me for months and months and has not helped me with my blog. I hope now that she has got around to it that she will post my last Three birthday celebrations. Yes that's right THREE she has missed, can you believe that??? Just because she has been to America and Sydney she thinks that is an excuse for not blogging for me. Anyway I have been having fun.
Back in June it was Mary's birthday. She chose to go to Michael's Oriental Restaurant for lunch.
 Ann and George dressed me. (They have the best ideas of all my wrinkly friends). Mary has just had a green house installed in her yard and she has been busy gardening lately. So Ann and George made me my very own greenhouse and gave me a wheelbarrow and gardening clothes and tools.

 I was so lucky this time because my very special friends, Bob and Chris could join us as they were passing through Brisbane on their around Australia tour. So the oldies talked and talked for hours and nearly forgot to feed me.

I am so looking forward to helping Mary in the garden and putting little plants into my very own greenhouse.

The chinese banquet was delicious but the bestest dish was this pumpkin and chicken curry. I am very lucky to have such a bunch of fun loving friends.
