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.

It was Ann's birthday and we all went to the "White House Restaurant" in Waterford. I was so excited when Chris made an airboat for me to ride in. Ann really enjoyed her airboat ride when she was on holidays in the Northern Territory. Now I can take Ann for a ride in my boat anytime. We just have to be careful of those pesky crocodiles.
 I love my airboat.

 Ouch a crocodile has jumped in the boat. I have a bandage on my knee to match Ann's sore knee.

The food was delicious not that I was given much. 

I get stuffed into a carry bag and taken home by the birthday girl. Chris and Helen dressed me for Ann.
