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.

Yea!! I'm helping Mary bake for her church group. I love licking the bowl.  We celebrated Mary's Birthday at the Southside Sports Club .
It was nice walking into the newly renovated club.

 Chris dressed me for Mary's birthday and Mary is happy to have a helper on baking day.

 We all enjoyed being at a new venue. I hope they are going to share their meal and drinks with me.

These old wrinklies have been friends for many years. They all met when they were working at Kuraby State School. They vowed to keep in touch by sharing their birthdays with one another and ME.
