Some ladies at Friendship Manor in Rock Island, Illinois, are celebrating milestones. Here's how they've kept themselves feeling your all these years. At Friendship Manor in Rock Island, a few birthdays are being celebrated this month. "I have never ever in my wildest dreams ever thought I'd ever be this old," says Nellie Porter. Nellie Porter was born in 1911 in Princeton, Illinois. She grew up on a farm with five brothers and sisters. "Climbing trees, running up and down hills, swimming in the little creek by my house," she says. This month, she turns 103 years old. "It doesn't occur to me that I'm as old as I am," she says. "But the devil don't want me and the Lord don't have room for me." Sitting next to her, enjoying their birthdays as well, are Margaret Danielson, who turned 104 this month, and Ellen Johnson, who turns 100 in just a few days. "How does it feel turning 100? asks WQAD reporter Caroline Reinwald. "Well it feels good right now," says Johnson. These three ladies may not move as quickly as they used to, but they still try to do everything they can to stay active. "Play cards," says Danielson. "Well I like to read, I like to sew, I like to bake," says Porter. "I played bridge all my life," Johnson says. "I took lessons because I wanted to be better that the other girls." Ted Pappas is the president and CEO of Friendship Manor. He says having a positive attitude has a lot to do with how long these women have lived. "They're very optimistic, they're very friendly with the staff, they have wonderful relationships with their families," Pappas says. As for the ladies? They're not sure what they did to get them as far in life. "Well I couldn't begin to tell you, I'm too old to remember all that," Johnson says. They're just happy to be surrounded by the people who love them the most.
