BOB'S BIRTHDAY BEAR

Bob had a belated Birthday Bear celebration. Before the celebrations Bear agreed to having a ride in the washing machine at Ann's house. However, Bear declined the offer of a spin in the dryer but opted to hang around in the sun all day trying to get dry.


 At the end of the day Bear was still damp so it hung around inside the garage for the night.

 At last Bear was all cleaned and shaven and ready for his new outfit for Bob's party.

Bob and Chris have bought a property in the country. Bear is dressed ready to help Bob with all the chores on the property. First they have to erect a kit home and keep an eye on all the native fauna. They need to make a place for the alpacas they hope to raise. 
 This time the celebration was held at Helen's home. Bob and Chris had come from the country to stay the night because Chris and Helen were leaving on a trip on the next day. Chris is far left and Helen far right. They are going to Western Australia on the famous Indian-Pacofic train and then touring the Pilbara Region.

 It was an impromptu party, so fish and chips and donuts were the fare for the event. Unfortunately, Bill and I couldn't make it that evening because we were on our way back from Melbourne.

Bear enjoyed the donuts best.

  2. Happy Birthday to Bob. Bear looks so nice and clean after his wash. Hanging on the wire hangers he looked like he was doing gymnastics.

    The new header is beautiful. Is that yellow building a train station?

  4. That's a remarkably flexible bear! Not a smart idea to have a wash prior to gardening though.

  10. Well, I'm glad the party went on without you... bear had quite a day hanging about in the sunshine. Your friends are quite adventurous starting an alpaca farm in their retirement years. Just when most of us are wanting to slow down. Good for them for following their dream though!
