    Geez! And most of us just wish we lived that long! Hard to imagine all the history that has happened in her 104 years!
    Go girl!

    I like the fact she started on the small side. Now she can improve next season.

    Congrats to Florence.

    I’m pretty damn sure I will never see 104 years old but if I did, I’m certain my hunting days will just be foggy memories as I suck my dinner through a straw!
