Centenarian Gets Taco Surprise


Life is good when you’re 106-years-old. Just ask Myrtis Jewel Painter. The jovial active senior (pictured) was treated to the party of a lifetime at a Taco Bell restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona.

Organizers say the fast-food eatery is Painter’s favorite, and that she patronizes the restaurant frequently. So, the franchise owner decided to help mark her birthday in style. Painter, who has lived in Phoenix since 1932 (when she was the ripe young age of 20), said she thoroughly enjoyed her special dinner of one taco and one enchilada.

Meanwhile, another centenarian in Florida visits his local Chick-fil-A restaurant every day to score the free meals he was awarded on his 100th birthday.
