CHENEY, Wash. — Flossie Dickey celebrated — and we use the term loosely — her 110th birthday on Thursday. Apparently, the first 100 or so are enough, then you’re over it.

Flossie certainly didn’t seem too impressed.

The Washington woman was born on Feb. 18, 1906. She’s lived through two world wars, the Great Depression, watched men walk on the moon, and cheered as women earned the right to vote.

Flossie has been able to watch her great-great-great grandchildren grow up — but don’t ask her how many she has.

“My grandkids… they say there’s 15 them. I don’t know,” she told Good Day Spokane.

During her interview, she was asked if she was looking forward to her birthday party on Thursday afternoon.

“Not one bit,” she said.

If you are wondering what the secret to a long life is, she offered some advice.

“Don’t fight it. Live it,” she said.

According to her family, her favorite thing to do is to drink whiskey, straight up.
