A Tucson woman celebrated a big birthday Wednesday. Wanda Waltke was born in 1914 when eggs were still 37 cents a dozen. 

Wanda spent her younger years traveling before settling down and becoming a seamstress. 

Now, after a century of life, Wanda lives at Aspen Care Home in Tucson. 

She says the secret to a long life is just to take it day-by-day.

Wanda's new hobbies are bingo and cards, but she says she still enjoys everything the can.
