Happy Birthday, Mom!
Today is Mom's birthday. Normally, we'd be celebrating with her this weekend, but this year, she's spending her birthday in a very special way, visting Israel and staying with our cousins, Tammy and Itzik Lederman. We called her this morning to offer our birthday wishes - she's having a wonderful time.
Here's one of Mom's favorite photos, taken with me in Amberg, US-Occupied Germany in 1950, where we lived as Displaced Persons (DP's.) From the foliage and Mom's sleeveless blouse, I'd say it was late spring or early summer. Within a half year or so, we would be on our way to a new life in the U.S.
Happy birthday, Mom, from your first-born!
