Woman is still standing tall at 107


Many have given up the high heel option of footwear -- but not everyone. Loraine Bowling, for example, wears hose and high heels every day. That's not a huge deal until you consider she is 107 years old.
She lives in Lawrence, Kan., and, just think, she has been on earth through three centuries. She was born Dec. 4, 1894.
Loraine says she can remember riding to Lawrence in a covered wagon, shaking hands with Teddy Roosevelt and riding a pony to school.
She walked 10 blocks every morning until she was 102 when she became a "bit unsteady on her feet."
Loraine lives alone, eats all the chocolate she wants, weighs a mighty 80 pounds and told a reporter, "I'm here, so I'll carry on."
