BILL'S BIRTHDAY BEAR

Although it was Bill's Birthday last month our birthday bear group only celebrated now because both he and George have a birthday in the same week. So they take it turns to celebrate a month later. Readers not familiar with our Birthday Bear tradition can find out more here.
We celebrated at Sunnybank Hotel, Birthday Bear was dressed by Helen and Paul this time. When we arrived there was bear engrossed in his computer. This truly reflects Bill's hobby. He is a computer addict. Even when we go away he has to take his computer or he gets withdrawal symptoms. Now Birthday Bear has caught the bug and is looking at a blog on his computer. Bill has also taken a lens out of his glasses since his cataract operation He has to wait a month before he can get  new prescription glasses. Bear has got the same problem.

 Sporting a cap similar to one Bill has, Bear can't be distracted. He also has a DVD on trains to play. Trains are another one of Bill's passions.

 Of course Bear has to have an Apple computer like Bill.

 Unfortunately our group photo enjoying a delicious lunch didn't turn out well. I had fish but others had steak with a lobster tail. Bear like that one best. After a fun time with our friends we took Bear home.

Now Bear is home with us and still I can't get him away from the computer. I like his cute sandals similar to ones Bill wears.

Bear has let his white beard grow so he can look similar to his computer buddy. The logo on Bear's shirt is the same as Bill's company shirt.

  7. you must have a lot of fun conjuring up the image for each birthday, no doubt you work with these ideas for months ahead too. The glasses idea was a great pickup; well done and belated birthday wishes to Bill

  10. Such attention to detail. Maybe you could write a children's book about Birthday Bear. I'm sure it would be a best seller.

  13. Dare I say Bear is very clever and friendly, just like Bill - at least when he puts the screen away for a time.
