Ruby Davis, who turns 105 today, believes the secret to long life is simple: Just keep moving.
That motto has worked for her for more than a century. Even at a birthday party Saturday, attended by more than 200 family and friends at Calvary United Methodist Church, Ruby kept moving. Each time someone arrived to wish her a happy birthday, she stood from her chair to give them a warm hug.
Guests came from across the country: Virginia, North Carolina, Missouri, Alaska, Florida, Arizona, Oklahoma and Kansas.
