Do you think when Annie Simpson was a little girl she expected to celebrate her 103rd birthday with a drive-by parade? Probably not, but that's what happened this weekend. 

I always love to hear about big birthday celebrations, so of course when I saw this story about Annie turning 103 at, I had to click on the story and watch the video.

My favorite part?

The mask her grandson wore in the video with her photo on it.

Maybe Annie didn't expect to turn 103 during a pandemic, but chances are she and her family are feeling pretty happy to celebrate her birthday even if it's socially distanced and while wearing a mask.

Happy birthday, Annie! Can't wait until 104!

The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
