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.

When it was Mary's birthday, Ann turned me into a tea lady bear. I was beary, beary pleased with that because I would be able to snack on morning tea nibblies when I helped Mary prepare afternoon tea for her church.
I have on my best top and pants and pretty shoes. Mary is happy to have me as a helper. Hee hee she doesn't know how much I love to eat cakes, slices and cookies especially when they have honey in them.

Ann helped me cook a lovely honey and nut slice......oooooooooh my mouth is watering, Mary is holding them right under my nose.

After lunch at the Runcorn Tavern I made the wrinkles a cup of tea and I let them have a piece of slice but I made sure there was plenty left for me.
