Up in smoke

This is a picture of Winnie Langley using the candles on her 100th year birthday cake to light yet another cigarette:

It's been estimated that she smoked more than 170,000 cigarettes in her lifetime and outlived her husband, son and 10 step-children. She died one month shy of her 103rd birthday.

I suspect she also outlived most of the healthcare professionals who advised her to quit over the years as well.

The picture makes me smile.
