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.

It was Chris's birthday. She has just come back from a holiday in Thailand where she enjoyed washing and scrubbing the elephants. So Ann thought it would be fun for me to pretend to be an elephant and I would get some loving scrubs from Chris.

Here I am at the Caloundra Power Boat Club Restaurant with my bucket and brush for Chris to use. I bought some little elephant friends who I can wash too.

Ann was the clever one who helped me get dressed for Chris's party.

Al my wrinkly friends had fun together again.
