Ladies, never trust an atom. They make up everything.

97 is the oldest I'm aware of.

My mother's aunt lived to 104. My mother's sister and my aunt lived to 92 and her brother lived to 90 and died the same day Frank Sinatra did, and many people who knew my uncle in California died asked me if my uncle was Frank! 😃

Had a great aunt live to 102, but other than that people passed in their 80s or 90s.

Close. My one grandfather died at 96 and my grandmother is still alive and very healthy at 94.

My dad's aunt Maggie lived to 105. More important, she lived, alone, in her own home (albeit only on the 1st floor) till she was 101.

Grandma lived to 102; same birthday as mine...different year, though.

test said...

just had this conversation minutes ago with a coworker. I just went on Sunday to my uncles 100th birthday. he is the oldest person i ever met/know.

My Grandmother was one month shy of her 100th birthday when she died.

Normal. Yes indeed. said...

In dog years maybe

My grandmother died at 104. Mom is 88 and still going strong.

Abraham.

My great-grandfather and his sister both died at 105.

Too many biscuits and gravy for that to happen.

My grandmother lived to 100

My grandpa on my dads side lived to be almost 102. He wore long sleeves all year round and gardened and read the paper and mail to my grandma every day. It was dementia that killed him. She died just a very few years after that at age 77 from cancer that came from everywhere. And yes that’s the correct age difference.

3s and 7s said...

My great grandmother lived to 103.

Great-Grandmother lived to 102.

Not a relative, but at least an honorary family member. My cat, Milo, turned 100 in cat years (he's 15, almost 16) last year.

I did have an ancestor who lied about turning 100 in 1900. He got himself a newspaper story, and probably some free food and booze. He was actually 98 (and didn't make it to 100).

Nope, my family parties too hard.

PhyllisWhitweed said...

Prior generations, yes. Great-grandmother and great-great grandmother both almost to 100, despite the dust bowl and migrant work. Everyone else got bad genes or bad habits, or both like me!

AndrewBW said...

I've had lots that lived into their nineties but so far as I know none to 100.

Spider Rico said...

Great Aunt 103 - drank Johnnie walker black every morning in fresh squeezed O.J ate pasta and salad and that's that.

Brooklyn Girl said...

Yes, my Dad. And he was fifty when I was born.

roxy said...

None. I will be the first.

Weekittylass said...

Pop's 97. Most lived into their mid to late nineties and most smoked and drank. Hey, when you're Irish/Puerto Rican/Bajan and one side owns a rum distillery and the other a liquor store, it is what we do!

Kno Won Uno said...

Pfft. No. I’m surprised I’m still alive, actually.

Hortensia said...

Yep. Great Uncle lived to 106. Smoked and drank. Quit smoking when he developed emphysema in his 80s, did exercises for it, remained healthy to the end when he just dropped.

Me Again said...

All of them. Strong hillbilly blood.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Not that I know of. I sure hope I don't last that long. Ech.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

That is awesome hahahhaha! 🥃🍝🥗

What age do your balls hang to the floor ? Sorry for the imagery but I wanna make it that far...

MovieBuff said...

My grandma now 90 is the only person I know with long years. Having 9 kids and a husband. When her own mom fell sick she moved into her childhood home to care for her parents. Cooking cleaning nursing her mom. Her dad and uncle both became sick just as her mom passed. She took care of them too until they passed. Today, my mom has taken on the role her mom took one. She cared for my grandpa who lived 89 years and passed in August 2017. Now, she is caring for my grandma. Honor your father and your mother and your days shall be long. My mom is 62 or 63 now. She’s got lots more living to do. 😉

My great aunt almost made it to 100 and had a strong whiskey or two every night. When family members told her nurse to make them weaker, the first one she got like that she gave right back and said "now, you go make this drink right"! 😂🤣 funny thing is my gramma, her sister, never touched a drop of alcohol and died much earlier.

Zophie Enzo said...

I asked a doctor friend if men's balls hang a lot farther as they age. He didn't really give a precise answer. Maybe if you keep them supported they'll stay higher like boobs.

My grandfather was 101...I remember him yelling me about the first time he saw an automobile...Can you imagine that? We take so much for granted...

Maude Labowski said...

*telling (not yelling)
