Mom's 90th Birthday Dinner
Mom was born in eastern Europe in 1919, but her date of birth was never recorded. Since she was born about the time of Rosh Ha Shanah she always observed her birthday on September 4th. All of a sudden this year she said when she registered for school in the USA as a small girl her father or older cousin used August 1 as her birthday. Anyway she wanted to celebrate in August this year. My sister Joyce who lives in Dix Hills, Long Island picked Cafe Rustica, an Italian Restaurant in Great Neck. You can see photos at http://picasaweb.google.com/bigtownman/90thbirthday . I also uploaded them to Facebook as I watched Who Wants to be a Millionaire.
