So, if she ate bacon, chicken and ice cream and now she's dead, hmmmm, I wonder how long she would have lived if she had not eaten that.... I guess we'll never know...

Default The Oldest Man In America

GREAT FALLS, Mont. Walter Breuning learned to read by kerosene lantern, remembers his grandfather telling him about fighting in the Civil War, and cast his first presidential ballot for Woodrow Wilson.

The 112-year-old resident of Great Falls, Mont., apparently became the world's oldest man when 113-year-old Henry Allingham of England died Saturday. Breuning was born Sept. 21, 1896.

Now living at the Rainbow Retirement Home, Breuning takes one aspirin and eats two meals a day. He strolls the halls wearing a suit and tie and still walks the ramps to his second-floor apartment.

Breuning said he's more grateful for his health than he is for a world title.

"If you're in good health, you've got everything there is," he told the Great Falls Tribune.

Steve Hartman presents this weeks Assignment America where 112-year-old Walter Breuning proudly stands as the oldest man currently living in the nation.

Note to self...If I ever get that old, I am taking up smoking and eating ice cream and candy bars and drinking nothing but margaritas for every meal. I mean, why the heck not?
