Not saying this the case but, the first thing that came to mind was, a former French Resistance fighter encountering a Vichy Collaborator, and issuing justice.

Many lost their families to the Vichy French.

You may be on to something there. They both were old enough

Yep, a French friend who has passed away, was a resistance fighter at age 11. He lead American forces to German camps hiding deep in the forest. Claude encountered them on one of his forest hikes. He traveled many miles on foot during night hours in search of American troops.

He lived in America in later years, a successful bakery owner. But, about ten years before he died, the French government called him back to France to receive the Légion d'honneur, for his heroic efforts as a child. I knew Claude for many years and, knew nothing of his bravery until I heard about his receiving the Honor. He didn't talk about the war.

Those Resistance Fighters know how to hold a grudge... Believe me.

Hitler did what the US did with the Iraqi Generals - Paid them off to "throw" the war!

Totally nuts! That woman is as close to divine judgment as humanly possible and to throw your soul away like that is incredible!

If she beat her to death...this may not have been her only victim.

102 years could hide a lot of skeletons.

Arsenic, old lace, and bludgeoning. Wasn't that old bird's first dance, which might explain all those unused ration cards from the war, tucked away in an old  musty chest at the foot of her bed.

My new role model is that 107 year old black WWII veteran who smokes 7 or 8 cigars a day and drinks whiskey.

I want to grow up to be just like him!

Ah, the George Burns diet!

But he drank Gin Martinis.

“I never go jogging, it makes me spill my martini.”

The American actor and comedian lived a lifestyle full of booze, cigars and pretty girls. He was rumoured to wake up at 4.30pm - after his afternoon nap - drink two martinis, and then go to dinner.

If it is true, we come back, I'd like to come back as a Love Bug...to spend a lifetime fluttering in the warm sun and mating in mid air...oh what a life that would be!

People always look upon the elderly as though they're innocents.

They're not innocents, they're just people who are old now and committed as many dastardly deeds (some worse than others/some more than others - all humans being self serving as the number one driving force in humanity is self preservation - not that there's anything wrong with that) as anyone else who ever lived.

They say with age comes wisdom, but is it wisdom or just that you know more ways to play the game of life due to having more years of experience?
