BIRTHDAY BEAR IS GOING BUSH WALKING

Both Mary and I have birthdays in June. So we stagger our celebrations with Birthday Bear to be a month apart. Then I forgot to post about them, that dementia is getting closer. Anyway I had my lunch with birthday bear a few weeks ago. We went to Sunnybank Hotel where we always get good service and nice meals. I still wasn't feeling too well after coughing for four weeks. (I'm feeling much better now thank goodness after five weeks of it.)
 When I arrived I found Bear waiting for me in the forest. Bear knows that I love walking in the forest so she is prepared with her hat, bottle of water and camera. There are koalas and wallabies in the forest too and a walking track map.
Mary dressed Bear for me this time and it was very appropriate.

Bob, George, Mary, Ann, Helen, Chris, me and Bill.  Bear had her own little table behind George. It was so nice for Chris and Bob to travel a long way to be with us and it was nice of Helen to put them up overnight. Thank you everyone for celebrating my 75th with me.

  7. Happy Belated Birthday Diane :) Sorry to hear you have been feeling under the weather and wishing you a speedy recovery. These things tend to hang on and on don't they? I always love to see Birthday Bear and so neat how he is dressed. You all have a very creative way of thinking, especially as it is with the birthday girl/boy in mind. I really love the ideas you all come up with.
