Oh, the stories she can tell.

A 114-year-old Nebraska woman now has the title of America’s oldest living person.

Thelma Sutcliffe, of Omaha, is also officially the seventh-oldest person in the world after 115-year-old Hester Ford died in North Carolina earlier this month.

Sutcliffe was born in 1906 and says her top wish at this moment is to eat dinner in person with her longtime friend after coronavirus restrictions are lifted.

Take your age now and think about what life would be like if you lived to be 114 years. How will the world be different?
