    You go girl. I hope that I can still pull the trigger at 100.

    I'll remember this story next time I'm complaining about the cold and lack of action in the stand.

    There’s a woman who’s got life figured out. I doubt when she passes that she wishes she’d led a more fulfilling life. Well done Ms. Vickers.

    My great Aunt Janie went fishing on her 100th birthday. She took her trusty old row boat. She was in a write-up in Michigan Out-of-Doors (about 1986?).

    I hope I can manage what those two have. My great aunt’s secret to long life? She never went to a doctor...all she ever used “medicinally” was Whiskey. She passed in 1990, at the youthful age of 103 years.

    If I live another 25 years, I hope I'm mobile enough to copy Mrs. Vickers. My grandmother lived till 97 so maybe I have a chance.

    Well, she probably didn't make a living working in chemical plants, either, getting exposed to obnoxious carcinogens. I contracted a condition in the 90s, a blood condition called "thrombocytosis", rare, unknown causes, but detected on my CBC which came up on my routine exam at the plant, required by OSHA. I've been taking hydroxyurea ever since to control my thrombocyte count. I'd have likely died years ago of stroke or other clot disease were it not for hydroxyurea. I'm quite sure whiskey wouldn't be a good substitute. I'd just have died throwing up. :rofl:

    My Dad has several liver cysts resulting from working at Michigan Chemical in St. Louis, MI. The land is still fenced-off...decades later. No doubt our environment has been altered. I believe the settlement for the exposure was $250.00, that after years of waiting.

    Mississippi still has a few tough old women, I'm proud to say!

    But Morgantown, MS is nowhere near Oktibbeha County as the article says.

    I read some of the comments. There could be a whole other thread on some of the comments.
