Blumenfeld's father, Karl Richter, was
a rabbi in Germany when the family
fled the Nazis in 1939; Blumenfeld was
just 3 years old. They hid for a while in
a hospital until they could get to
Holland and board a ship for America.
The Richter family moved around the
United States for 25 years as the rabbi
found synagogue pulpits in Springfield,
Mo.; Sioux Falls, S.D.; and Michigan
City, Ind. Rabbi Richter, 93, who
earned a degree in speech at the
University of Michigan in the 1950s, is
now retired in Tampa, Fla., but still lec-
tures and writes.
Blumenfeld continued moving
around, first to Atlanta, where she spent
27 years, then to Tucson nine years ago
with her husband, who was an industri-
al psychologist and an author of lan-
guage books. She has one son.
"My father also was a humorist," she
explains, "so I decided to try it, but real-
ly concentrate on being good at it. His
sense of humor is part of my legacy."
She even attempted to do standup
comedy — once — at an Atlanta night-
club. "But things got off to a bad start
when the emcee introduced me, then
mooned the audience," she chuckles.
With her former collaborator, Lynne
Alpern of Atlanta, Blumenfeld has writ-
ten seven humor books, three still in
print, including Oh, Lord, I Sound Just
Like Mani :4 Oh, Lord, It Monday
Again; and The Guaranteed Bottom-Line,
Low-Cost, High-Efficiency Guide to
Success Through Humor (Peachtree
She also has published more than 200
articles, conducts humor workshops for

businesses and conventions and has
appeared on numerous television and
radio programs. For 10 years, she taught
college humor awareness and cooking
courses. She is a member of the
Dramatists Guild of America.
