Twin sisters born almost a century ago in Southern California are looking forward to their 100th birthday Saturday.
Inez Harries and Venice Shaw still live in the Los Angeles area, the Los Angeles Times reported. And they are still hard to tell apart.
"I don't feel a century old," one sister said Wednesday at a surprise reception held by the Lockheed Federal Credit Union, where Harries has had an account for decades. "I probably don't feel any older than in my 80s."
Harries and Shaw were born Jan. 15, 1911, in Pasadena. Their father, William Hesser, managed a citrus ranch.
They appeared on a float in the 1917 Rose Bowl parade and survived the 1918 Spanish influenza epidemic and the San Fernando floods of 1938. They traveled, often together, on camping trips to Yosemite as young married women and more recently on Mississippi and Alaska cruises.
When they were schoolgirls, many of their friends simply called them both Twinny.
A big family party is scheduled for Sunday in San Fernando.
