BEAR TAKES UP TEACHING

Birthday bear time again. If you don't know about our Birthday Bear tradition read more here. This time the celebration lunch was for my birthday, which was last month. However, because Mary and I have birthdays in the same week we postpone one of the celebrations for some time later.

So last Sunday we all went to lunch at La Porchetta, an Italian restaurant at Loganholme. It was quite a cool winter's day so we opted to eat inside instead of out in the Piazza. I love Italian food so I was happy to have a pasta, chicken and avocado dish.

Bear was there to meet me when I arrived. Bear was dressed as me giving a talk on photography at our U3A camera club. She also had on a pair of bling sneakers very much like mine. She also had a name badge and a pointer just like me. It will be good if she plans the next lesson for me.

 Mary did a good job at dressing Bear  this time.

The best way to spend a birthday if you don't have family close is to spend it with good friends and good food.
