"Have friends and have respect for people. Enjoy life."

Those are the wise words from a Wichita Falls resident who's had a while to learn about life as she recently turned 100-years-young.

Virginia Kerby Hearn was born in 1914.

And in those days, Ford Motor Company had just announced the eight-hour workday.

You'd also get just a $5 bill for a full day's work.

Also that same year, Charlie Chaplin made his film debut and baseball legend Babe Ruth made his debut with the Red Sox.

Dozens of Hearn's friends celebrated her 10 decades on this planet through a birthday party at THE Kitchen today.

Hearn says she's glad to be 100 years old and still driving!
