The long search is apparently come to an end. After decades of fruitless investigations, Popeye’s mother has been found in a small, rural assisted living facility in the south. As would be expected, the 150 year old woman starts her day with a big bowl of spinach and a pack of Lucky Strikes. And has a Swabbing the Decks aerobics video in the works.
Papparazzi have reportedly caught glimpses of her famous son but have yet to get a clear shot of the crusty sailor with his elderly mother.
Though staff at the unnamed facility are concerned with Mrs. Sailorman’s smoking, particularly during her oxygen tank sessions, they report that she is in amazingly good health and often will entertain the other residents after dinner by doing a unique shuffle and jig while accompanying herself on the accordion.
When asked her secret to having lived so long, she said: “I live by the green and dag nabbit, I’ll die by the green.” Words to give one pause and ever so relevant in today’s world.
