Worlds oldest man, Henry Allingham

Our Henry became the worlds oldest man today when the previous holder of the title passed away this morning in Japan.

Henry, 113yrs on 6 Jun 09, is classed as a super centenarian.

Congratulations Henry and heres to many more years.

Hang on, he is nearly as old as some of beagles hilarious stories.

Rambling, at least BEagle can tell 'hilarious' stories.

All the same, good on you Mr Allingham. Take Care.

He deserves a medal - to go with the others.

Congratulations, Henry!

henry Allingham

The gentleman also has a great sense of homour; he was quoted, on his 113th birthday, as saying that it was great to be a teenager again! I don't know if it has contributed to his long life but he always seems to be smiling, when photographed, and I think he has a happy and positive outlook on life.
