Mail Online reports that Gladys Gough celebrates her 103rd birthday this week in Coventry, England. She says that she is convinced that her longevity is due to her staunch avoidance of men, relationships and having a good dinner. Well, Gladys will be relieved to know that many women in England do prefer a good dinner to anything to do with men. ‘ I never got married or had a boyfriend either. That probably had something to do with it. I just couldn’t be bothered with men’, she says.
Gladys has never been in a relationship or married but has been to so many countries and is well known in the retirement home where she is for having a good sense of humour and a warm disposition. The staff say: ‘She’s a joy to have here and we’re pleased to see her celebrate her 103rd birthday.’
Happy Birthday Gladys!
