'I ate a lot of Kentucky Fried Chicken and Twinkies': Woman celebrates 105th birthday

Quote
An Oklahoma woman is getting the birthday celebration she deserves.

Lois Wooten, of Del City, turns 105 on Sunday. She received a proclamation Wednesday at the Oklahoma State Capitol.

Wooten still lives by herself, sends homemade birthday cards and loves to text on her iPhone. She roared through the roaring '20s, learned to drive on a model T and has lived in Del City since 1950.

Wooten was honored by the state House of Representatives days ahead of her 105th birthday.

"I ate a lot of Kentucky Fried Chicken and Twinkies," Wooten said.

Wooten drove until she was 98.

"I don't like to cook much. I eat a lot of frozen dinners. But who cares?" Wooten said.

For someone who spent the vast majority of her life without a computer, Wooten now loves technology, including her iPhone.

Wooten spent 20 years as the cafeteria manager at Kerr Junior High. Her late husband was a firefighter at Tinker Air Force Base.

It is difficult only for the others.

It is the same when you are stupid."

But could others do the same.  So much is genetics, but still there are things you can do.  See link.

  • At some point, the money is due.
It seems like living to 100 is not as big a deal as it used to be.....

Interesting. I do all of this, though I won't live into my 80s due to heart issues, I do agree that one stood out the most for me. "Cultivate optimism", this along with staying mentally active is probably one of the most important on the list, because once you begin to see fatalism in everything, you start losing the drive to live life.
