While a DJ played some of her favorite songs, guests danced and toasted to the spunky 99-year-old lady.

One fellow Bishop’s Commons friend warned the crowd, “Florence is one great lady. But, you don’t want to come up against Florence in a game of cards!”

Florence, a Brooklyn native moved to Bishop’s Commons in January of this year.

She is the aunt to Candice Conaway of Oswego.

Porky and Buddy Pet Health – ‘Pushing Kittens Out The Door’

I am thinking about adopting a kitten, as my 18-year-old “Bumpkus” passed away last winter and there is a huge hole in my house that used to be filled with purrs (and fur).
