I must apologise to Birthday Bear participants and Birthday Bear too for being slack and not keeping up reporting on Bear's activities of late. For any readers not familiar with our Birthday Bear tradition read more here: Birthday Bear's Blog
Last March (I'm ashamed to say) Chris organised a birthday lunch for husband Bob at the Pineapple Hotel in Brisbane. Chris and Bob are our part time participants as they are usually on the road travelling around Australia. However, they were in town for a few months and joined us for some birthday celebrations.
Bob loves his life as a grey nomad seeing the sites and meeting other people at camping grounds. He is a 'Happy Camper". So Birthday Bear thought it would be fun to join Bob at happy hour at the camping ground.
Bear met us at the hotel dressed in his camping clothes and he had his beer ready to share with Bob. Bear also had a big white bushy beard to match that of Bob's.

Unfortunately Bob came down with the flu and wasn't able to join us but Chris came to say goodbye as they are off on another camping adventure.
Now skip two months and today we celebrated Mary's birthday at 'The Runcorn Tavern". Mary helps at her church providing morning tea for seniors. So Bear came dressed in her best and she had a tea pot, tea bags sugar and milk with a beautiful plate of Macadamia slice, which she shared with us. It was delicious.
Mary is happy to have a helper for the next morning tea.
Ann dressed Bear and George made the table. We all enjoyed tea and cake after lunch.
L to R. Bill. George, Paul, Birthday Bear, moi, Helen, Ann and Mary. We were all pleased to see Paul managed to come even though he is not well and still having chemo and vaccine treatment.
