George's Birthday is today exactly one week after Bill's so we have two Birthday Bear parties within a week. (Who's complaining?) George has recently been to Far North Queensland to go fishing with his brother. He showed us photos of him holding a huge fish that he caught. So Birthday Bear came as a fisherman.He is holding up a big shark, rod under his arm and a net at his feet. (It was our turn to dress bear)
George looks very happy with his present.
Then he showed us how big it was,"the one that got away."
We went to Sunnybank Hotel for lunch. Ann had collected "shopper dockets" for each couple so that we got the second meal for $7.00. It was a cheap meal but very tasty for pub grub. Much to Colin and Richard's (friends who don't like it) disgust I had Barramundi fish and it did not taste like plastic it was soft, juicy and delicious.
Bill loves sausages and I don't so he often has them when we go out.
Birthday boy, George had lamb shanks.(Richard thinks this is a strange meal for us to eat in the tropics in summer, but one can get sick of summer salads and the eateries are air conditioned so it gives us a better variety of meals.)
Ann had chicken wrapped in bacon , avocado and cheese sauce.
Mary had a similar dish.
