Wagga's Lettie Lockett has celebrated an impressive milestone - her 102nd birthday.
It's a formidable age, though Mrs Lockett says it feels "no different" to being 101-years-old.
Coronavirus restrictions made it a slightly more subdued affair than previous birthdays.
However, Mrs Lockett was still able to celebrate with a small group of relatives and a carrot and pineapple cake made by her daughter, Sue.
She chalks up her longevity to hard work and a good life.
As a young girl she lived on a farm in Gregadoo with her six siblings but has spent many of her years in Wagga.
As a teenager she met the young man who would become her husband, when he came to her school to deliver tomatoes.
Her relationship with Austin Lockett blossomed and the two were married in 1939.
The Locketts settled into life on a farm just outside Wagga, where they raised their five children: daughters Sue Ryan and Helen Fitzpatrick and sons Graeme, Garry and John.
"Life was difficult in the beginning," daughter Sue Ryan said.
"From my earliest memories we didn't have any electricity. We rode horses and bikes to school."
The family always shared a strong bond despite these early setbacks and they have remained close.
Mrs Lockett is a grandmother of 11 and great grandmother of five, with a sixth baby due to arrive in July.
When Mrs Lockett was in her late sixties she and her husband moved into a house on Tompson Street, where she would remain after his passing until she was 97-years-old.
Since then she has lived in Wagga's Forrest Centre, where, under usual circumstances, her two daughters who still live in the city visit everyday.
In her room she keeps her card from Queen Elizabeth which she received on her 100th birthday.
"It was a thrill actually. I framed it and it's up," Mrs Ryan said.
Mrs Lockett said she was grateful to have had such a happy life and to have shared it with "the best man in the world".
"I wouldn't do anything differently," she said.
"I've had a wonderful life I really have."
