Happy Birthday Class of 1970

Saying hi and happy birthday to my high school friends from the class of '70 who, along with moi, turn the big six O this year.  Since we're all celebrating on different days throughout the year I thought, since next week is June 1st and almost the half way point of the year, that this was a good time to wish all of us a good ol' fashioned happy birthday.  Plus on June 1st, I'll turn 59 1/2 which is the magic age when your financial status changes.  It's odd that it's 59 1/2 and not 59 or 60 but none the less, it is an important milestone when it comes to finances.  When you reach 59 1/2 there is no longer a 10% penalty when you withdraw money from a tax deferred plan.  Not that I'm ready to make any withdrawals but nice to know that we've reached the age that we're penalty free!

Happy Birthday Friends.

I processed this in Photoshop with several adjustment layers, filters and textures.  Using the magic wand, I selected the background on the image layer and then added it as a layer mask on one of the texture layers.  I then added a pattern and colorized it.  The text is a free font called The King and Queen.

This is the image Straight out of the camera (SOOC).
