  • News Something really worth celebrating!

    This will have to be the coolest birthday at the park this year!!!:thumbup:

    O.C. woman celebrates 107th birthday at Disneyland | johnstone, mickey, asked, cream, mouse - News - OCRegister.com

    Margaret "Mank" Johnstone awoke Sunday after 107 years of living, slipped into a red blazer, applied some red lipstick, put on her Mickey Mouse earrings and headed to Disneyland.

    "God was good to me," she said, when asked why she thinks she has lived so long. "I've never tried to be special."
    Johnstone, possibly Orange County's oldest resident (if you're older let us know), caused more of a hubbub than Mickey Mouse. "Hear ye, hear ye," the town crier shouted, ringing a bell as the crowds parted for Johnstone's wheelchair. "Our princess is 107 years old today!"
    "No way!" came the replies.
    "Amazing!" they said.
    Alternately wearing mouse ears and a blinking princess tiara, Johnstone smiled and waved like Miss America to her cheering fans. Asked if she wanted water, she said no, just a Kleenex, which she then tucked into the wristband of her watch.
    When she finally found Mickey in Toontown, she puckered up and laid one on him. She's got Mickey beat by 24 years.
    <...>
    Johnstone had a preventive double mastectomy in the 1960s after her sister died of breast cancer. Asked if she had a favorite time of her life, she told me: "I enjoyed the whole bit." As she said goodbye to Mickey and headed to the Jungle Cruise, a park employee told her family they would have to come back for Mickey's 107th birthday, to which Johnstone replied: "See ya then!"

    We saw her eating at Storytellers over the weekend. She had a "Happy Birthday 107" balloon.

                    Wow! Seeing her picture I would have guessed she was 80. Yes, that is a compliment when you are 107.

                        My fiance and I saw her in front of the castle yesterday. She was there with her balloon that said 107 years old. After that, we went to Snow White and saw her being paraded around Fantasyland with a cast member walking in front of her ringing a bell announcing to everyone to say happy birthday and saying that she was 107 years old. Such a sweetheart. I can only imagine what it would be like if I were alive at the age of 100 and still be able to spend my birthday at DL.

                            Oldest in Orange County? I don't think so. Try oldest in the world.

                              That is AMAZING, she doesn't look 107 - maybe 86 or so.
