It's lonely at the top...


World's oldest person to turn 116 Jeralean Talley was born in Montrose, Ga., on May 23, 1899.
She's been in Michigan since 1935. Relatives say she remains active and aware of what's going on around her. Talley was named world's oldest person in April after the death of Gertrude Weaver,who passed away at the age of 116. Weaver died just five days after 117-year-old Misao Okawa died in Japan.

I know an old lady who is 107. She'll probably make it to the top eventually.
