Default 105 year old man

So, all this talk about sushi made us go out tonight for some rolls.

Sitting a few tables over was a man celebrating his 105th birthday!

I overheard that he's going to have his mug on Willard Scott's Today show segment tomorrow so if you see a 105 year old from Jupiter on Willards old people tribute then this was the guy!

105... sheese. I'll be lucky to see 65.


PS... He didn't look a day over 92!

The local news recently interviewed guy that was 103 years old. The reporter asked him the secret to his longevity. His reply, was clean living. No smoking, drinking, or carousing. Suddenly there was a terrible racket coming from the next room. The reporter inquired if everything was alright. The gentleman said not to worry, it was just his dad coming in from an all night drunk.

My grandmother will be 105 this year. Every year we have a party not knowing when it will be the last. She can still remember when she was a kid and tells stories. Amazing.

I had the unusual honor last year to attend the 100th birthday party for a family friend.

His 101st birthday has either just occurred or is within the next couple of days. At the moment he is gravely ill, so no party this year.

My grandmother was 103 when she died. A sprite little old lady right up until the end.

I not sure if I want to go that long. But certainly long enough to make my daughter change my diaper just once. Payback.

I just want to go like my grandpa, gently in his sleep. Not like the other screaming people in the car he was driving.
