According to Ada Daniel, who was celebrating her 108th birthday recently, the key to living an active life is to have many pets.
She used to own a large number of dogs when she was younger.
She noted that her pets helped keep her young, as she had never had kids of her own.
She resides in a care facility in Codnor Park, Derbyshire.
She was thrilled to celebrate her 108th birthday last week after the facility launched an appeal to send birthday cards to her.
Through the appeal, which was well-received, she was able to receive almost 300 cards.
A surprise party was then held for her, and a few balloons were also donated.
According to Kelly Goucher, the activity co-co-ordinator of the facility, Ada doesn’t have many family members left.
As a result, the staff members of the facility wanted to make her birthday a special one by sending her as many cards as they could. She enjoys being known for her age.
She used to own several greyhounds, and all of them were called Street Lane in Ripley.
Kelly noted that Ada was known for her character, and she claimed that one of her secret secrets was to have dogs instead of kids.
She was excited about her birthday, and she started talking about it since the beginning of April.
A similar appeal was made for Ada’s 105th birthday in 2020, which resulted in her receiving 200 cards.
A woman from Spain named Esperanza Cortinas, who is 106 years old, revealed that she drinks coffee liqueur daily.
She was born on December 4, 1916, and she has experienced two world wars and two pandemics during her long life.
Ada enjoys dancing and playing card games with her friends, and she noted that she doesn’t let her advanced age get in the way of her desire to look pretty.
She also stated that she drinks coffee liqueur every day.
