FRAMINGHAM (CBS) – I got a nice email from Tom Illsley from Framingham. He told me about his sister-in-law’s mother who just turned 90.

Her name is Dorothy and he said she is the “definition of meek, unassuming, shy, quiet, wall flower etc…”

So you can imagine the surprise of all the party guests at her 90th birthday when she rolled up her sleeve and showed off a brand new tattoo.

That’s right, she got ink… a colorful tattoo of a butterfly.

Her family and her friends were in shock.

She told them she’d researched it then went to a local tattoo parlor and got it done.

Turns out she has a bucket list and this was on that list.

When asked why, she simply said, “When you’re 90, you can do whatever you want.”

And Tom said her crazy streak continues. She just went out and got her ears pierced.

All I can say to that is… you go girl!
