BIRTHDAY BEAR GROWS HIS OWN.

Birthday Bear came to celebrate George's Birthday with us today. Any readers not familiar with our Birthday Bear celebrations read here for an explanation. We tried a new restaurant today and it was very good. Cucina of Italy at Sunnybank. George was invited to this restaurant when he helped the owner who was admitted to the hospital where George is a volunteer. 

Bear was at the restaurant to meet us dressed in his gardening clothes with his wheelbarrow, shovel, watering can and plenty of veggie seedlings and seeds ready to plant. Bear also had a photo of himself with a huge rockmelon/cantaloupe that he had grown.

Birthday Bear must have known that George is a keen gardner who enjoys growing vegetables. George was even bragging about the big rockmelon that he had grown. So Birthday Bear is looking forward to joining George in the garden.
George is happy to have a helper in his garden. Mary enjoyed dressing Bear for George's birthday.


Birthday Bear with his wrinkly friends from L to R George, Bill, Paul, Helen, Mary, moi, and Ann.

Many of us had lasagne

Bill had ribbon pasta and chicken.
The meals and service were very good as well as the Italian decor and ambiance.

  19. Always love to see how Birthday Bear is dressed for the celebration. I love him today! The picture was a splendid idea. Kudo's to Mary and Happy Birthday to George! He looks quite happy!
    My Grandpa's birthday would have been the 12th. I have to imagine Birthday Bear in a fishing hat with a pole and bucket of bait. Grandpa loved fishing.
