Trio of women to celebrate major milestone

ROCK ISLAND, Ill. --- Three women in Illinois believe that their habit of life long fitness has helped them to live long lives.

The trio is celebrating major milestones this month with the ladies turning 100, 103, and 104.

The three believe that a positive attitude and active lifestyle have helped them get this far.

"Climbing trees, running up and down hills, swimming in the little creek by my house. It doesn't occur to me that I'm as old as I am. But the devil don't want me and the lord don't have room for me," said 103-year-old Nellie Porter.

The women added that they are happy to be celebrating such major birthdays surrounded by the people that love them most.
