Gladys Barnes of Robstown celebrated her 100th birthday over the weekend.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — We'd like to wish a happy birthday to Gladys Barnes of Robstown! She turned 100-years young over the weekend.

Gladys is a regular at her community dance club, and she says that staying active and having a positive mindset is the secret to a long and happy life.

"Just don't give up," Gladys told us, "don't say 'I'm 80, I can't do that.' You can do more than you think you can."

Not just that, but she says that a healthy diet and not smoking were big parts of her longevity!
