Native E. Texan celebrates 100 years


Jewel Stallings gathered around the table with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to celebrate her 100th birthday--which was yesterday.

Stallings tells us that she has seen many changes in East Texas over the years. She remembers the day when buggies were the latest mode of transportation.

Stallings even let us in on her secret to making it to 100.

"The lord! I have no other. Anyone that knows The Lord is going to be perfect. So, that's where I am," she told us.

Stallings gave up driving a few years ago, but she still loves to make quilts...and even does her own cooking.
