Blackpool Gazette: 100-year-old British man surprised by his longevity
A resident of the UK celebrated the 100th anniversary and was surprised at his longevity. About it informs Blackpool Gazette.
William Henry Hampson of city of Blackpool, Lancashire, celebrated the milestone June 16 at the Hollins Bank Nursing Home, where he moved just a few weeks ago. During the Second World War, the man served as an air defense gunner, and after that he worked as a mechanic all his life.
Hampson said that he is genuinely perplexed about the length of his life, because he did not lead a healthy lifestyle, and was even once a real drunk. “Frankly, I have no idea how I managed to live to a hundred. I have never been the height of perfection. At one time he drank like crazy. Then he quit, of course. I didn’t do anything special, I just enjoyed life. And now it’s still on the move, ”the Briton boasted.
The Hollins Bank administration threw a party for Hampson. Nursing home employees say that the long-liver made friends very quickly in a new place thanks to the manners of a real gentleman and a radiant smile. “I had a great birthday, everyone here is just great, and I really appreciate such attention,” Hampson said after the holiday.
