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.

Its Mary's Birthday. We all went to Caloundra on the north coast to celebrate at the Power Boat Club. I was so excited because I was going on a trip on "The Ghan" a very famous Australian train, which travels across the whole country from North to South. Mary has just done the trip and now it is my turn.
 The train is called "The Ghan" because it follows the route that the Afghan cameleers used when they were the only form of transport in the outback.

 All my old wrinkly friends were there too.

Chris was the one who made my train for Mary's Birthday. Diane spilled red wine al over Ann but none came my way. Still no honey for me but I had a nice dessert.
