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.

We all arrived at North Shore River Cafe on a lovely winter's day to celebrate Diane's Bithday. It was so good to see the sun out as it had been raining for days and days.
 The view from the cafe was delightful but I was more interested in getting inside to surprise Diane for her birthday.

I was dressed up in my flash rain gear with a cute umbrella and a flock of rubber duckies paddling around my lovely red boots. I even had a plastic rain hood on as well. I couldn't believe that it was so sunny today and I didn't need my rain gear. Diane liked my leopard skin pants.

 Diane had a yummy salmon lunch and.........

 she even shared some delicious lemon meringue pie with me.

Now I am back at Diane's house still waiting for more rain so I can go and play in the puddles.
