105 years old!

Thursday, July 11, 2013

Not me…

Part of my crazy day yesterday was a visit to my grandmother's home where family gathered to celebrate her 105th birthday!

Yes, more than a century! And she's still going strong! She sold her house 10 years ago and moved into an independent living place for retirees. She started using a walker a few years later after breaking a hip, but I think it was mostly just as a precaution. After she broke the other hip, she moved into an assisted living section of the same development. She still has an apartment, but there are meals in a shared dining room, and people to do light housekeeping. Nice!

Happy Birthday, Nana!

  Wow my grandmas made it to their mid to late 90s and I was always amazed at what they remembered from the days of no automation etc. Congrats to your Grandma on her birthday. Is she the oldest person in your state?
