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.

My blog helper is a bit behind. She is catching up with my last 3 outings. Just before Christmas we all went to a German restaurant for a lunch. I played Santa.  Chris was kind enough to dress me and she was thoughtful enough to give me shorts because it is very hot here at Christmas time.

 I had a chocolate Christmas bear for each wrinkly and one for me. The wine was to share but I wasn't allowed any as I was driving my slay home.

My happy bunch of wrinklies.

 They had interesting German meals. I tried some ham and cheese...yum yum.

I had a bite of sausage but I didn't like the sauerkraut. We all went home with full tummies.
