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.

BEAR IN A JAM
Boy am I excited today? Actually it wasn't today it was some time ago when we went to "Fish 52" restaurant at East Brisbane to celebrate Helen's Birthday.
Mary dressed me in my fine cook's clothes so that I can go home with Helen and help her cook jam and chutney caus she loves doing that and so do I. We are going to have so much fun making jam.
I even brought my Cook Book to help Helen with some new recipes. I also brought my cook top and pots and pans. Boy am I prepared.
I have even got some ingredients and utensils too as well as some Jam I've already made.
Me and my wrinkly friends are waiting to be served some fish and chips. Yum I love fish and chips. My silly human helper stuck her finger print on the camera lens and blurred Chris. It was great to have Bob and Chris with us again. They have been travelling round Oz but are back in town for a while.
