    My Mom's aunt turned 112 in Nov of 2019. She is now the 47th oldest person in the world. Still lives in a seniors apt, they now do the cooking for her. Lived independent till her 110. Looks great and she's on the ball still.

    Perspective to me. She was a 5 year old girl when Titanic sank. Holy shit.

    Too Funny!! :dude: :dude:

    Thats a huge accomplishment being #47, considering there is like 7.8 billion people on earth.

    I agree with everyone, just amazing from all aspects!

    Great Share!

    You sure she's not lying about her age to get the senior discounts LOL.

    My dad is 88 and I have him with me for a couple weeks right now, he's miserable with the sore back that keeps him from doing anything and his bad memory that frustrates him. :(

    Just one thing-
    does she play LP or Strat?
    Oh I get it, she plays 335. Runs in the family.

    She wasnt on it. Just that she was old enough then to have recollections of her parents talking about it.

    I did suspect that, but couldn't resist. (hence the smiley)

    Many happy returns to her!

    I wonder if people just constantly think of death at that age.
    I know I will never see anything close to 112. I'd be shocked if I lived to 80. (too many pork-roll, egg & cheese on a bagel)
