Wow! That's incredible!
A big happy birthday to Besse Cooper!
She just turned 116! She is literally the 8th person to ever reach that age.
She was born in 1896!
That's absolutely ridiculous. We bet she never would've dreamed that she'd reach the year 2000 let alone 2012!
"I mind my own business. And I don’t eat junk food."
Ha! Sounds like a great philosophy!
Well congrats again on your 116th, hope you and what we're assuming is several generations of your family had a great time at your party!
