105 candles? Might need to get fire department involved

QUITMAN, TX (KLTV) - If they had put the appropriate number of candles on Lottie Davison's birthday cake Monday in Quitman, they might have had to call the fire department.

Davison celebrated her 105th birthday at the Wesley House. The party came complete with all of her friends, plus a little live entertainment in the form of songs and dancing to a little oldies music.

Lottie says there is really no secret to long life, but you have to enjoy all the time you have.

"I don't know how long I'll be here," said Davison. "As long as I live. Of course I can't say. But I have thoroughly enjoyed life. I've had my sad days, but I've tried to forget it, and look for something more pleasant."

Davis says the most amazing things in her life were the things that she saw while she and her husband lived in Beirut, Lebanon.
