    according to the certificate, yes. Then again, the Andy Warhol haircut casts some doubt.

    Counterpoint: Check out this dude ... 100-year-old runs the Toronto marathon.

    Sure, he looks like Gandalf's dad with a turban, but props to him. And I think he did at least one more marathon after Toronto - then announced his retirement just recently - great story, imo!

    I think the word "living" is being used pretty loosely in this case.

    I just wish she/he still had basketball eligibility - could probably give our defense a spark.

    Nice, full lips. Wonder what she did for a living.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Don Allen: Strong, independent at 105 - SouthwestIowaNews.com: Local News



    Don Allen senior, left, celebrates his 105th birthday while his grand daughter Pat Oneil celebrates her 62nd birthday with family and friends at Pizza Ranch in Council Bluffs on March 2, 2013.
    ... Don Allen, Sr., was born on March 2, 1908. Not quite 14, Allen and family loaded into a horse and buggy to attend the funeral of Gen. Grenville Dodge, following the procession from his home to Walnut Hill Cemetery.

    What does he remember about the funeral?

    “The 21-gun salute,” sticks out, he said. “And it was cold.” .........


    Don still shovels his walk if his neighbors don’t beat him to it. Allen mows his own lawn, cleans around the house and cooks his own meals.

    Come spring he’ll work in his garden, growing a variety of vegetables to share with his friends on West Graham.

    He grows cabbage to make sauerkraut, which is popular among family and friends. His tomatoes have contributed to gallons of pasta sauce.

    “I’m 76, he’s in better health than me,” Bruce Jones said. “And he has a better memory. He’s unbelievable, just outstanding. The best. We just love Don.”

    About his dad’s health – and sense of humor – Don Jr. noted his senior “goes to the doctor once a year to see how he, the doctor, is getting along.” .......

    Tere Allen said he’s the model for the entire family.

    “Living your life honestly, authentically, taking it one day at a time,” Tere said of what she’s learned from Grandpa. .......

    As the party progressed, Don’s young friend Bob Sorenson, 102, arrived. The pair quickly entered their own world, catching up like old chums who haven’t seen each other as often as they’d like. After a while Don needed to get up and moving, sharing jokes with other partygoers. .......

    “He’s a go-getter. He’s a 30-year-old 105-year-old. A crazy man,” Stephanie said, a grin on her face. “I remember a few years back, he was in his 100s. West Graham has these deep ditches from the road to our yards, and mine had a 2X4 piece of wood spanning the ditch. I look out my window and see Don walking, tight-roping, across the board.

    “I ran out there and said, “What are you doing? Are you crazy?”

    His reply?

    “‘I’m seeing if I still have it.’”

    One-hundred and five years into his life, Don Allen still has it.

    Happy Birthday, Don Allen!!

    High-res is a little less kind to everyone.
