This beautiful face belongs to Ann Nixon Cooper She is better known, I suppose, as the Oldest American Voter. The southern lady hails from Atlanta, Georgia, and is currently the one person I’d most want to sit down and talk with.
Not just because of the history that she has lived through and not just because of her longevity. Sure, I’d love to hear her first-hand accounts of the different Presidential terms she’s seen, the wars, the moments that shaped our nation and our world. And I would hang on her every word when she spoke of her favorite foods and drinks. Obviously the lady is onto something the experts only think they know.
After all, she’s outliving all of them!
The main reason I’d love to sit down and visit with her is her smile and her attitude. She exudes the warmth, strength, charm, and loveliness that you’d expect from a southern lady.
When asked about the secret to her longevity, Ann Nixon Cooper gave us our quote of the day: “Being Cheerful had a lot to do with it I’ve always been a happy person, a giggling person – a wide-mouthed person!”
Oh, I love her all right.
