Re age: " Kane Tanaka
Since the death of 117-year-old Chiyo Miyako of Japan on 22 July 2018, 116-year-old Kane Tanaka, also of Japan, born 2 January 1903, is the oldest living person in the world whose age has been validated..
Strange to think, that even her living children and grandchildren would be older than me....
Don't think I want to live into my 100's, well certainly not with my PPMS body...
A good Monday evening to EVERYFRIEND.
This was a very long day for Michele and Dave. We went to their home to stay with the grands as they are on spring break this week, while mom and dad went to the hospital to have the Chemo. They had to be there at 9 and did not finish until 5 PM. Because it is the first dose, they had to give her several pre drugs, and then when it did start the chemo it seemed to go very slow. I have not been told the details about the new plan of Chemo, but found out this morning that she is now and will be taking 8 pills a day of various chemo drugs, all of which have very bad side effects, for 6 months. We have been told to expected this treatment to be rough on her. I saw the concern in Dave more than I have ever seen before and I worry about him. He KNOWS the worse of all of this and it has really taken a toll on him. They both continue to be as positive as they can be, especially for the children. Again, I thank you all for your continued support, it means the world to me.
SHIRLEY, as soon as I first heard about the possible problems with the Boeing 737 Max Plane, I thought about your family members who have been associated to this plane. I hope the findings will be done with fairness to everyone involved.
I wish you all a good night of rest.

Even Nora jumps over yardsticks.
Just stopped by to see what Everyfriend is up to today and now it's time to be off to bed. I'm sure glad tomorrow has no obligations!
Good night my friends. Sleep peacefully and may God bless us, every one.
Good afternoon, both my parents came from large farming families, and on my father's side, The oldest died a couple of years ago in January in his early one hundreds. He was both the firstborn of sixteen and the last survivor of the sixteen.
For some reason, both sides seemed fond of the age of 87 as that is when almost everyone, including the grandparents, died. My sisters are from 1949 and from 1960, and I'm from 1951. There are three sets of children among us with five years separating each. I don't know about the generation after us, but my parents and my sisters are the only nonfarmers.

JaneS I new better but like some of the rest my brain went in the wrong gear. we all make mistakes I may be the worst and the older i get the worse i seam to get.at least i never said any thing about either. but please forgive me. Have a good day.
We had a nice day today. Went to the store for a few items then it was home to fix lunch. Not much going on in this part of Florida, which is good.
Jackie, my mother lived until she was 92 and was the last in her family. Now I'm the last in my family. My husband has an older brother and two older sisters still living, but he came from a large family.
Mary Ann your nephews did die fairly young. Both of my sisters each had a daughter that died around 51 from cancer. I sure hope my children outlive me. I know it must be a terrible sadness to lose a child regardless of their age.
Nice message from you today, Larry. Just keep taking life easy.
Marilyne, I imagine you are glad to have a few 70 degree days. Our high was 70 today and I love this type of weather. It was about 40 when I got up around 8:30 and it took no time to get up to 60 and then kept going to 70. It won't be long before we will be having hot weather and worrying about hurricanes so we are enjoying this weather while it lasts.
Jean, the yellow hibiscus are so pretty; ours were pink. Then I had a darker rose one just ready to bloom and one of the neighbors was doing tree trimming and cut off all the buds. It didn't bloom again until another neighbor moved it where it got sun. Then the assn landscaped around the other building - and there went my hibiscus!
One of the residents here has (or had) a hibiscus that is yellow with dark rose band around the edge. It is beautiful.
