BIRTHDAY BEAR TRADITION
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.

I MUST BE GETTING OLD.
I've been finding it hard to see lately and so my Bear Doctor said I needed a cataract operation. It didn't hurt a bit but I had to have my eye covered for a day. When I went to George's birthday celebration at Michael's Chinese Restaurant I was not surprised to learn that George also needs a cataract operation. In our spare time George and I enjoy doing jigsaws and Diane had brought one along for us to do. Not all our friends could make lunch today because of illness. The rest of us enjoyed a banquet.
