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 Bill's birthday but he was packing up his house ready to move into a retirement village. So I thought I had better give him a helping hand. I brought along lots of boxes and my removal truck.

 Bill was very happy to have me to help with the move. He even gave me a sip of his beer but its not as nice as honey.

We celebrated at Sunnybank Hotel.
