ANDERSON, MO.--- A McDonald County woman is celebrating a milestone birthday. Lena Vaughn is turning 103-years-old. She lives at the Golden Living Center in Anderson.

She says the key to living a long life is to have a good sense of humor and eat lots of chocolate. She has several pieces a day and that seems to have worked for her. However, she has never smoked or drank.

"No booze or anything. No, not me. My mother would of paddled me if I did," said Lena Vaughn, 103.

To put it in perspective, when Lena was born in 1910, the Wright brothers made their first flight and a Hershey bar cost 2 cents.
