Aint she sweet.
Goldie Sohn, the oldest member of the New York Road Runners, celebrated her 106th birthday Wednesday with a rendition of the classic Roaring 20s tune to the delight of friends and family.
Aint she sweet, coming down the street, Sohn belted out in front of seniors at the Services for Older Adults Family Health Center at NYU Langone in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
Well see her walking down that street, she continued. Yes I ask you very confidentially, Ain’t she sweet?
Sohn smiled and clapped as she sat under a big silver balloon emblazoned with 106 during a festive celebration at the centers community room.
Happy birthday to me, she said. Imagine that. One-hundred-and-six, wow!
Sohn was born in 1912, the year the Titanic sank, her daughter, Marilyn Fisher, noted.
She was born premature at seven months, said Fisher, 78. My grandmother kept her alive in a shoe box filled with cotton, salt and olive oil. Now the miracle is that shes 106.
Sohn suffers from glaucoma and mild dementia, but it doesnt stop her from joining her friends at the center four times a week for a series of light stretches, shoulder rolls, knee bends and air punches, Fisher added.
She refuses to remember her age, Fisher said with a smile.
Sohn credits her long life to music, exercise and friends.
Dont sit still, she said. You have to be happy.
Sohn is areadly a senior celebrity: The Daily News highlighted her birthday celebration last year as well.
