How do you mark a milestone birthday? How about with a tattoo

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel.

How do you celebrate a milestone birthday? Have a huge party? Plan a vacation? Ninety-nine-year-old Gloria Weberg is planning to mark hers permanently. In March, she's turning 100. And to commemorate the birthday, she's going out and getting a tattoo, something she's been doing each decade since turning 80. When asked what she'd get in another 10 years at 110, she answered, probably something like, I'm still here.

It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
