It seems like just yesterday that I celebrated a birthday and here I am again. This one doesn't end in a 0 or a 5 but at this age, any birthday is special. On second thought, no matter what your age, it should be a time to celebrate.

When I was a child it was rare that anyone's birthday was celebrated. My parents were working hard just to make a living, putting food on the table, paying the rent and everyday expenses. There were no frills - with a few exceptions.

I do remember the Friday night dinners which welcomed the Sabbath and the families getting together for the Jewish High Holy Days. My mother made everything herself, and I do mean everything! She made the challah, gefilite fish, horseradish, noodles, chicken soup, chopped liver, roast chicken and a delicious strudel for dessert.

Many times I would ask her, "how do you make the dough for the strudel?" Her answer was, "put in just enough" Whatever she made, it was always "put just enough." - no recipe. That didn't work for me until I started reading cookbooks. As time went by I too learned to cook and "put in just enough!"

Now, getting back to the present time, my birthdays usually turns out to be like a "Greek Weding."

Tonight I'll be doing something that I have been looking forward to for a long time, I'm going to see "Jersey Boys". Ever since "Jersey Boys" opened in New York, that's the play I've wanted to see. Well, it's here in Boston and I'll be seeing it tonight!!!

Years ago when Boston was a try out city and the price of tickets was reasonable I got to see many productions and even got to see some of the actors backstage. It was an exciting time.

Well, I'm going to have some of that excitement tonight!

Happy Birthday Millie! I am following your son, Steve on Twitter (I am @digitalfemme). He shared this link with us on Twitter and announced that it was your birthday today. I agree, no matter what age you are, Birthday's are always special. I love how you are blogging too! I hope you enjoy your day .. and your show. *hugs*.

Happy Birthday, MomsGarfield! :D
Happy Birthday, Millie. I had the pleasure of meeting you at PodCampBoston a couple of years ago. Enjoy the day, and esp. the play tonight.

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, Millie! Hope you had a great time at the play.
Happy Birthday Millie - my philosophy about Birthdays has been that the longer I live the longer I celebrate - I figure by the time I am 90 I will be celebrating for the full year - to heck with the folks who try to hide the years and age - I figure I earned each white hair and wrinkle I have (even at 56-totally white hair and luckily not too many wrinkles yet - other than laugh lines) and I'm having too much fun to worry about covering them up :D

Hope you had the best of days!
Happy Birthday! I have seen "Jersey Boys" twice and it is one of my favorites. Thanks for the clip. I loved it too. Also saw and enjoyed "Julia and Julie" We must have similar tastes.
Happy Birthday, Millie!! My daughter saw Jersey Boys on Broadway and said it is excellent!! I know you'll enjoy it.
Happy Birthday Millie - I'm still here reading. KP
Happy Birthday. Is it intimidating to be an inspiration to all of us bloggers.
A very happy birthday to you. Hope the hot weather doesn't get in the way of you having a great day.
Happy Birthday Millie. May you have many many more. Oh, and BTW, I loved Julie & Julia too!
Happy birthday, Millie!
Happy, happy birthday to you, all the way from Oman. Hope you have a wonderful year ahead & the best of everything.
God bless!

Thank you for sharing your voice and your stories with all of us! Happy birthday Mamma Garfield!
I, too, am following your son, Steve on Twitter (I am @alphapie). When he mentioned your blog, I had to go take a look and I love your comments and perspective on life. I hope you have a fantastic birthday! Will be reading you regularly from now on.
Happy Birthday Millie! I was a student of your son at Boston University. Congrats to you on your special day.
Happy Birthday!

Like Carmen, I am following Steve on Twitter - @moonmaeven

I agree, it doesn't matter the age, only that you can spend it in the company of friends and family :)

Have a great day, and best wishes!
One day late, but Happy Birthday Millie. I love birthdays because they remind me to call friends and family and tell them I love them. How was Jersey Boys?
Happy Birthday from Singapore!!
Have a wonderful birthday Millie! I wrote about you last summer and it has been a joy to follow your online exploits directly, and vicariously through Steve. He is so proud of you, and so are all your readers and viewers. Have a GREAT day!

Warm regards,

Happy Birthday Millie. I really enjoy your stories... especially about the strudel recipe. My bube won a pie baking contest on the radio many years ago... when they asked her how she made it, she just rattled off ingredients. The man said... "but how much of each thing?" Bube Sarah replied. I don't know, I just schütten a little this and schütten a little that.... Well on the radio, schütten sounded a little to much like a four-letter word in english. Needless to say, she never won another contest on the radio. Thanks for the memories!
Happy birthday, Millie! I hope you had a great time at Jersey Boys. Here's to another year of great times!
Happy Birthday, Millie! Have a wonderful time (and eat lots of cake!)

I met you at BlogHer 2006, and my friend Stephanie Roberts interviewed you! You were (and are) sensible, warm, upbeat, beautiful, fun, funny, interesting, "hay-mi-sche" [Yiddish, homespun, earthy], and wise ... just like your blog posts. Sending you hugs from Atlanta on your birthday!
Many Happy Returns and I'm sure you are still as lovely as your photographs. Judy (Kenju) sent me and I'm happy to make your aquaintance.
Happy birthday, Millie. I shall toast you tonight. Well, I would if you'd fit in my toaster, so maybe I'll just raise a glass (with some wine in it) instead.

A Very Happy Birthday Millie..! Judy sent me over and I LOVED reading all about your Mom and her cooking for the Holidays. Both my mother and my Grandmother made everything fromn scratch, too...And it was DELICIOUS, wasn't it?
My granmothers recipes were similar to your Mom....Only she would say..."Oh, a fistful of flour..."!

I bet you saw a lot of GREAT GREAT Pre-Broafway tryouts...I saw them when they got to Broadway--IF they got!
"JERSEY BOYS" is fun, isn't it?

Okay, Millie. I want to know how women -- I think it was during the Forties -- achieved those rolls in their hair. You know what I mean, that swept up look with the hair rolled into, um, er, sausage-looking things.

I was a little kid in the Forties, and too polite to ask the grown-up ladies such a person question. But here we are in the 21st century, and I'm feeling like maybe I can finally ask you.

So glad to find another senior lady blogging. Mine is at
Wish me luck!
super belated happy birthday..
wishes you more birthdays to come and a longer life..
btw, if you're in Singapore, we can help you find delivery of hamper...
