Do Not Tick Off Granny

An elderly Austrian Grandmother spent her final days shredding over a million dollars to keep her heirs from inheriting the money. I guess they shouldn't have put her in a nursing home. Go Granny!

A May-December Romance

Back in 1955, it caused some controversy when Count William Aubrey Tealdi married Princess Lidia Maria Antonia Carraciolo di Torella, the reason being that he was 74 and she was 14. They had to get a special papal dispensation to allow the marriage. Predictably, he was rich, while her family (though Italian royalty) had fallen on hard times. [google news]

But the strange thing is that despite the huge difference in age, the marriage proved to be a success. A follow-up story that ran in papers in 1966, when she was 25 and he was 85, reported that the couple had three children by that time, and he was hoping to have more. She declared herself to be "the happiest woman in the world."

I don't know when Count Tealdi died, but it's quite likely she's still alive. After all, she'd only be in her early seventies — not yet the age the Count was when he married her!

Monster Mash Senior Lip Dubbing

Happy Halloween!!

If this performance doesn't scare you, just file it away until you are old and in a "senior living center".

This is the webpage for "memory care" at this facility, which I think means Alzheimer's, conveniently priced at only $298 per day, plus the $103,000 refundable entrance fee.

At least I have something to look forward to, and it ain't that far away.

I hope my kids find me a place where I can do YouTube videos.

I like the choreography and costumes. What's your favorite part?

She Finally Got Her Moose

On a recent hunting trip, Laura Wood successfully killed a moose with a single shot. What makes this weird is that she's 95 years old. Good for her, but not so good for the moose. I wonder if she's the oldest person ever to have killed a moose? []

Elderly Rockers

Little Richard to return to performing reads the headline at the BBC. Do we need another 76-year-old rocker? Here he is in 1992. But that was eighteen years ago!

Your opinions, please.
