Healthy Elders including Emma in Montana

Healthy Elders.  There are real live people who are vibrant at an advanced age.
In Sept, 2014, my sister and I visited Emma in Missoula, Montana.  Emma lives in a retirement home there.  When we knocked at her apartment, she came to the door and greeted us, wearing her usual:  A dress, shoes and nylon stockings.  I wish my legs looked as good as hers!
I said, “Emma, I’m giving a workshop on rejuvenation, and I would like to know your secret for staying so young.”
“Well”, she said, “you know I’m 102 years old.”  When I nodded, she continued, “I guess you could say my secret is that I associate with young people.  However, I do eat dinner now, in the dining room with others who live here.  They’re all old, you know.  When I started eating in the dining room, I said ‘there will be no talking about aches and pains.  There are lots of interesting things to talk about besides getting old.’  So dwell on the good, not the bad.”
Emma thought for a moment and then added, “I can’t just sit in the parlor here and play tiddlywinks.  I don’t fixate on pills.  I don’t smoke or drink alcohol or coffee.”

On Dec 10th, 2016, she celebrated her 105th birthday, still living in the same apartment.  Emma wanted nothing special on that birthday, but a friend insisted on treating her to dinner.  Knowing her friend liked hot dogs, Emma instructed her, “Go to Dairy Queen.  Buy us each a hot dog and a milk shake and bring them here.  We’ll eat in my apartment.”

Here is Emma at age 106 in April, 2018, with the book 'Rejuvenate Naturally' in her lap.
