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.

DIVING WITH A WHALE SHARK
I'm so excited because Chris is going to teach me how to snorkel and swim with a whale shark. She and Helen went to Western Australia and learnt how to swim with these huge gentle animals. We celebrated her birthday in their new house on their country property. I saw lots of wallabies.
Chris was happy to have me come snorkelling with her.
