Happy 104th birthday Oma Ella-you rock!
Actually, this was the life advice that my late maternal Zaidy followed. He made it to 96 and had a little schnapps every day.
He really wanted to make it to 100, and had protracted negotiations, according to him, with the Maloch Hamavos-the Angel of Death. We thought he was a little crazy, sitting there talking to himself, pit pattering away.
But as I get older, the more convinced I am that he was having conversations, and not talking to himself.
