According to the London Daily Mail, Grace Jones (not THAT Grace Jones) just celebrated her 112th birthday. Photos show her to be a lively, lovely senior lady, and she reveals her secret is a shot of whiskey every night.
I was never a drinker in my early years. As a 19-year-old-sailor in 1945 in the newly-liberated Philippines, guys from our advanced Navy unit in Manila went to a local bar to celebrate the end of World War 2. I drank several glasses of native brew, became unconscious and was driven back to our tent on floor of our truck.
I found out the next day that the home-made denatured alcohol booze was poisonous, resulting in the death of several other sailors. I didn’t drink for many years, but for the nearly 30 years since retirement one evening shot helps me sleep. Tonight I’ll raise my glass to you, Grace!
