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 Helen's Birthday celebration at the Botanic Gardens Cafe. I was dressed by Chris and I'm going to remind Helen of her great trip to Western Australia. I'm dressed like the many miners over there. I would rather drive the big trucks than dig up the ore. Chris helped me make a photo album of Helen's trip to WA.

 Helen and Chris enjoy the album of their trip.

 After lunch some of the wrinklier went walking through the gardens. Others including me stayed behind to have a yummy dessert.
