STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. -- Surrounded by a daughter, six grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren and 26 great-great-grandchildren, Willie May Hardy celebrated her 104th birthday.
"I feel fine, thanks to the good Lord who gives me strength and has blessed me to get this old," Hardy laughed.
She was born in 1908, the same year the first Ford Model T was rolled out. She grew up in rural south Georgia and said from an early age she wasn't afraid of hard work.
"I'd chop cotton. I'd hoe cotton. I'd pick cotton. Anything I could do in a field I did it to help out," Hardy said. "If someone called in sick, I could even pick up the plow and get the mule going."
