BIRTHDAY BEAR DOES HARD LABOUR

We celebrated George's Birthday a little late because I was away. However, we all got together for our traditional Birthday Bear Lunch. This time we went to Salisbury Hotel. We were pleased with the service and the food was good too. We were all pleased to see Paul, who has cancer, was well enough to spend some time with us.

George and Ann recently celebrated their 50th Wedding anniversary and it was my turn to dress bear to reflect something in George's life.   So Bear is dressed as a prisoner doing 50 years hard labour.
He has a pick over his shoulder and a ball and chain attached to his leg.

George enjoyed the joke.

Wife, Ann giving him a hard time.

It was fun dressing Bear for George.

Bill, me, Helen, Paul and George.
I forgot to take a shot of the whole group. Ann took this one but Mary and Ann are missing. Mary must have been ordering lunch.
