6 OH

I can tell I am (not so) quietly climbing the age ladder.  Two friends turned 60 this year.  Yikes.

Yogi’s wife wanted to remind him that he was 60 and still thrifty, frugal and fabulous… This family always has me smiling with their colorful and bold personalities so I hope they felt the love in my attempt to reflect that!

The other big 6.OH set was shipped off to Stockholm.  Stefan and I have been friends since university. We have visited each other as often as possible over the years. Stefan is such an excellent golfer that my first thought was to play up that theme but I opted for (english) puns about his birthday (wish I learned enough Swedish to use their idioms).  The one portrait tile is in honor of 1981 Stefan, when I first visited Sweden. We ended up near the arctic circle to attend a traditional Swedish mid-summer celebration; Stefan had a big blonde mustache at the time and he wore a black leather jacket and cap as we danced the (not really ever dark) evening away!
