My Late Mom — High Energy at 81
January 26, 2022
My mother, Jean Archer, aged 81, in 1999 (born 1918) running through the waves at Port Elizabeth, South Africa — always in 100% top health, no arthritis, no colds — lots of fresh air and exercise, fresh fruits and vegetables, soaked almonds and seeds.
What was her secret? Fresh food all her life — very few machine foods, other than bread — and Oxygen, tons of oxygen!
I was given a raw orange and fresh-cooked oats for breakfast as a child. Only on a Sunday were we allowed cereal from a box, and then it had to be plain, like corn flakes, no frosted flakes!
Eugh! I hated having to eat that half an orange first thing every morning. Today I love oranges and freshly-squeezed orange juice.
Mom passed on in October 2008, nine days before her 90th birthday. She wanted to live to 100 and get a telegram from the Queen.
