I’m honoring my Dad’s 94th Birthday today!
At this “youthful” stage in his life, he still drives, enjoys reading my blog,
has a facebook now, meets a good friend for lunch often, remains active
in his church and is still going strong!
Someday, I’ll ask him again what the secret to a long life is…
Dad, I’m sending you a Blitz Torte (your favorite), but this time,
I didn’t make it myself.
You know I’m a great baker,
but this cake is not my specialty, it was Mom’s.
I was afraid mine would look like the California Earthquake cake again! 🙂
Remember that? I think Mom really enjoyed my attempt and had a good laugh!
There are no new words to say,
only those that have been repeated over the years…
Thank you for all you’ve done for your three daughters
and for all of their families. Your kindness and Love
doesn’t go unnoticed. Thank you for being our Pillar
and for being Mom’s true love.
WE LOVE YOU AND WISH YOU A HAPPY 94TH!

Thanks very much, Wendell, and I will convey all your wonderful wishes and kind words, too! He does look great for 94, doesn’t he? 🙂 Blessings to you, as well, my friend…
Wow! He looks well…
Now I must ask, what is Blitz Torte? I’ve never heard of it – judging by the picture it is some kind of heavenly meringue and cake concoction?
Thanks so much, Pooky! He has aged very well, I think, too! 🙂 A Blitz Torte is a torte (cake) that is like a vanilla flavor with custard filling and meringue on top. The last time I attempted to make one, I don’t think I whipped the egg whites long enough, because the meringue came out cracked! Seriously, we live in CA, so I called it the California Quake Cake! lol My parents loved it anyway and had a good laugh! It’s very good and my Mom has always made it for Dad on his birthday. Sadly, she passed over a year ago, so I know it’s tough for him…thanks for stopping by!
It sounds like you invented a whole new kind of cake!
I’m going to have to try making a Blitz Torte – I made my husband a 5 layer chocolate brownie and meringue cake with raspberry cream for his birthday. It was RIDICULOUS!
Sorry to hear about your Mum. I’m sure you and your father keep her alive with all your happy memories though x
A delightful post! I hope your father has a great birthday. jx
Thanks very much, Jean! I appreciate your birthday wishes! xx
What a lovely Happy Birthday present.
Thanks so much, Tric!
How lovely, happy birthday to your Dad, he must give my Dad tips on how to look so well at 94 ;). My Nana is just getting into blogging and Facebook she was scared about breaking her laptop at first but now she loves it.
Thanks, Charlotte, and I’ll tell him you said he looks good at 94! I think he’ll read this post later, too! That’s great about your Nana getting into blogging and facebook. I was surprised when Dad wanted a fb, but we all helped him get set up! Thanks again and I just love your voice! 🙂
Thanks Lauren, hope your daughters enjoying University 😉 I’ve just loaded another video on Facebook tonight of me singing with the full male voice choir and the military wives choir. Barry Manilow’s One Voice 😉
She’s doing great and feels much more comfortable now and so do her parents! 🙂 I just watched the video and your performance is just gorgeous! Wow! I also “liked” your page, so I’ll look forward to listening to more of your beautiful voice, too! Thanks again, for stopping by!
Happy Birthday to your Dad! =)
Thanks, Iris! I appreciate your wishes for my Dad! 🙂
Thanks, Deb! xoxo
Joy and blessings to your dad, dear Lauren! What a grand occasion. Hurray for wonderful fathers!
Thanks so much, Kathryn! It’s not everyday we turn 94, so it was a grand occasion! 🙂 Hugs!
Happy Birthday to your Dad, he looks as though he is still in his late 40,s, hope I look as good as him at his age.
Ian aka Emu
Thanks very much, Ian, and your complement will definitely make his day! 🙂 He does look good for his age and I don’t know the answer yet. I’ll have to ask him again! Thanks for your birthday wishes!
Happy Birthday to your Dad, Lauren. What a handsome man! He is “94 years young” . Amazing! Good for him. What an inspiration. What a beautiful tribute… Loved it. big hugs my friend. Enjoy your day. Your ‘torte’ still sounds yummy though. ♥
Thanks, Renee, for all of your kind words about my Dad! I know, 94 is amazing! 🙂 Big hugs to you, too, and I hope you’re having a great day, as well! The torte I made still tasted good even though it looked like a quake cake! lol ♥
You are so welcome. It does sound yummy. hugs. ♥
94? That’s amazing that he’s still so active and healthy. I was born on the same day, and my father was born one year after your father.
Yes, it is amazing, Binky, and wow, that is coincidental that you and your father’s birthdays are the same, too! Great day to be born! 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by!
That’s so nice. I hope he had a great birthday! With a cake like that and so much love, it would be hard not to.
Thanks so much, Sheila! He did have a great day and it would have been better if Mom were still with us…but that’s okay. She’s watching over him. xxx
Happy Birthday to your Dad!…and many more to come! 🙂
Sending much love and hugs xoxo
Thanks so much, my friend, and sending love and hugs to you, too! xoxo
What a great-looking Dad you have, Lauren. You are both blessed to have each other as Daddy and daughter in this lifetime. Please greet him Happy Birthday,with my wishes for a lot more of healthy years to come!

Aww..thank you, Cynthia, I’ll let him know you think he’s handsome! That’ll make his day, I’m sure! 🙂 And thanks for your beautiful wishes, too! Many hugs and blessings to you, dear sis! I hope you’re happy and well! xoxo
What a lovely tribute to an obviously amazing man and father, Lauren! Here’s to him reaching 100 and even beyond! XO ♥

And this post is really cute too, Lauren.
Wowww… that’s amazing. 94 and a Facebook account?! I love your dad even more! 😀
Big hugs and I hope you all had a great time for his birthday!
Thanks, Cha, I’ll let him know that he’s pretty cute! 🙂 Yeah, 94, it still amazes all of us! We couldn’t believe it when he wanted a fb, but we helped him and it’s one more thing he can do…thanks for the hugs, we had a great day and sending hugs to you, too!

Definitely, thanks, Lindy! 🙂
