    The oldest person I know is one of my patients. He'll be 103 on January 19th. Look for him on Willard Scott this week...

    My wife's aunt will be 100 in August 2002. Although she is in a assisted care center, she is still very sharp of mind. Knows everything that happened years ago.

    The oldest person I knew was when I was nursing in the Burn Unit. She was also 103 and she got into a tub of hot water and needed hospitalization. She called me her ray of sunshine and told me the secret to a good marriage (she outlived three) was her last one - no kids and he took her out. I found her to be a stitch and she was a sweetheart. :)

    "Ensign Swenson" soon to be 101, i can't even remember exactly when - the minds a terrible think to lose;) , starts off every story with "now stop me if i've told you this before" of course no one ever does, even though we've heard them all before. He's a pretty happy fellow as i type this since he got his driving privileges back - assisted living folks said "your to old to drive" BS he needs to hit his trap line for a few martinis now & then; i truly believe it keeps him going.

    this guy had the best bar trick i've ever seen - could balance a 1/2 full martini at a 45 degree angle on a nickle, loses something in the translation but it was something to see.

    Fenway: Tell your patient to shave the moustache, it'll make him look younger. By the way, like your hat. ;) ;)

    Also been meaning to tell you that you've got it all wrong. This is the place you need to be worshipping:

    As to your first point, LOL.
    As to your second point, I'd much rather contract GENITAL WARTS.
