It’s 100 years and counting for Besse Fogle

Besse Fogle, a retired restaurateur in Pomona and Ontario, turned 100 on Monday. The day before, her friends, including yours truly, threw her a surprise party in Rancho Cucamonga. That’s the subject of my Wednesday column. Above, Fogle talks to friend Norm Stutzke.

A 45-second video of the party can be seen here, although you’ll have to turn your computer, or head, sideways…I shot it in the landscape format and there didn’t seem to be a way to turn the video right-side-up.

    I hope she and the half-brother are close enough to stay in contact–she is in an elite group with, basically, no cohorts as it is–he must not be too young himself. May she stay in good enough health to continue enjoying the leisure she obviously deserves after such an active life.

      Her half-brother is 76. I told him he’s just a kid.
