East Texan Celebrates 101st Birthday

O.B. Langston was surrounded by friends, family, birthday cake and lots of balloons at his 101st birthday party in Tyler.

Langston grew up on a farm in Anderson County and is one of 12 siblings.

He has six children of his own.  20 grandchildren, 45 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great grandchildren.  He told us what he has enjoyed doing over the course of the last century.

"I love to hunt and fish.  I've seen a lot of animals and a lot of fish.  I just enjoyed life. I can't believe that I'm 101 years old," says Langston.

Relatives say Langston also likes to sing.

He says turning 101 is the greatest and biggest adventure of his life.
