THE BIG 75

We celebrated Bill's 75th with Birthday Bear and our friends at the Lions AFL Club. The service was good and the meals delicious and the company great. If you are not familiar with our Birthday Bear celebrations read here.

It was Ann's turn to dress Birthday Bear and she had just recently discovered that Bill used to paint. He hasn't done much since he discovered computers and digital photography and making videos.

However, Bear reminded him of his past and he is trying to convince Bill to pick up his brushes again.



Ann did a good job dressing Bear.

I must have been so interested in eating and chatting to my friends that I forgot to take a pic of our whole group.

  1. Note for future reference, for something I already know, you were having such fun that you forgot to take photos.

  2. Are those some of Bill's paintings? If so, wow! He needs to take Birthday Bear's advice and pick up a brush. Happy Birthday, Bill!

  8. Good God - to think I was in the presence of Picasso and Co.
    Have a great day, Bill - not too much of that French Red that you so like.

  12. Happy belated to your Bill!! At least you got some people pictures ... I never remember to take pictures when I'm with other people -- too busy talking (or listening maybe).
