My Baba turned 103 this past weekend! Wow!
Lately I’ve been wondering if I’ll make it 25, let alone 103.
Thankfully she is very much with it, and sharp. And ever so funny. It amazes me how hard working, poor and how much she went through in her life and still so healthy. Sure, she isn’t skydiving – but her mind is in tact, no heart conditions, or major health ailments, other than perhaps there being a little bit of fluff in her ears which prevents her from hearing too well.
She was introduced to her great-great granddaughter and she responded with “My goodness I must be so old!”
Anyways, it makes you wonder. My Baba who loves pie and ice-cream, KFC and Beer- Who worked out in the sun everyday without a hat or sunscreen, drove in a car without seatbelts, had no hand-sanitizer in their outhouse, ate veggies with the dirt still on – is still thriving at 103, no cancer, no heart disease, no skin cancer and almost never sick.
Go Baba! Show all those health yuppies who’s boss :)
