Saturday, Agnes Fenton celebrated her 110th birthday and shared the two beverages she believes are the keys to her long life span: Miller High Life beer and Johnnie Walker.
Fenton says she originally got the idea from her doctor 70 years ago when he discovered a benign tumor and advised her to drink three Miller High Lifes every day as a health precaution.
Since that unorthodox prescription, she’s had three beers and a shot of Johnnie Walker Blue Label every single day.
According to The Record,
Nurses stay with Agnes Fenton around the clock. Neighbors and firefighters check on her, as does 66-year-old Lamont Saunders of Teaneck, who has known Fenton his entire life and calls her “Aunt Aggie.” Fenton was a dear friend of Saunders’ late mother, and from Aunt Aggie, Saunders said he has learned “honesty and being true to yourself.”…
Since becoming a centenarian, Fenton’s been quite the Englewood celebrity. She’s received government proclamations, and birthday greetings from President Obama and Governor Christie. NVE Bank tossed its longtime customer a 107th birthday in conjunction with its own 125th anniversary celebration. Englewood has proclaimed Saturday “Agnes Fenton Day.” The city’s first Agnes Fenton Day was 10 years ago.
Only 1 in every 10 million people in the world live to be supercentenarians, a blessing Fenton doesn’t take for granted. “When I was 100 years old, I went to the mirror to thank God that I was still here. And I thank him every morning,” she said.
No word yet on if Miller or Johnnie Walker have heard about her glowing endorsement.
