As of the beginning of this month, there are still five people living who where alive in the 1800's and I am sure you have probably guessed, they are all women. Now we all know that women live longer than men but these five women are sure pushing the limits. I bet these ladies would have a lot of stories to tell and believe me, I would sit and listen intently to them. Would you like to meet them? I sure would, but since we all can't do that, I will do the next best thing. I will post their pictures.
How about I start with the youngest one. This young lady, Emma Morano, is only 115 years old:
Susannah Mushatt Jones is a few months older than Emma.
Jaralean Talley is also 115 but a little older than the two above.
This next picture is the America's oldest living person. She was born on the 4th of July, 1898. Yep, she is 116 years old.
Now, this next one is last and by far, not the least. She is the oldest coming in also at 116 but was born on March 5th, 1898 which makes her the oldest. Her name is Misao Okawa.
Ain't she beautiful!! Love that smile. Heck, and I thought Billy Bob and me were old. We got a ways to go. . . I hope. Now live long and healthy and have a great day, you hear?
