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 bet you didn't know that I am a bear of many talents. When it was Diane's birthday, Mary said that I was smart enough to help Diane tutor at the University of the Third Age.
Here I am with my pointer and white board as well as my lesson notes, examples of good photos and photographic gear. I am ready to help Diane at her next class.

Diane is pretty happy about that and thanks Mary for getting me ready to help with the lectures.

We had a yummy Italian lunch at La Porchetta in Loganholme. It is great to see my friend Paul, in the blue sweater, be here to celebrate with us because he is beary beary sick with cancer.
