When really old people talk about their life, I think we should all listen. Pearl Cantrell is one of those old people. She is 105-years-old. This week, Pearl celebrated her 105th birthday with a three-day-long party. Cameras showed up and asked the age-old question, "How did you live so long?" Pearl was happy to oblige with the answer. Her secret to longevity, it turns out, is bacon. "I love bacon, I eat it everyday," Pearl told NBC affiliate KRBC.
Thanks to all the dads who came out Saturday (on a cold, rainy day) to try the 2013 Father Mows Best Obstacle course with us. We have had fun with this event every year for the past 6 years. This year, Mark Chenoweth posted the fastest time. And, just in time. Mark wins the 2013 Husqvarna Riding Lawn Tractor. He said that he has an "old, crappy push mower that breaks down every 3 days." While he doesn't have a huge yard, Mark said he will have fun using his new lawn tractor this summer and for years to come.
