MUSKEGON, Mich. — A 104-year-old woman still has her rhythm and continues to be the entertainment at a local flea market.

It's a tradition that she and her husband Howard have been doing for the last three years.

Joanita tells us she began playing piano when she was just 4 years old and Howard has been playing alongside her for the last 70 years.

"Oh, I enjoy it," Joanita said. "I just don't like to get up in the morning to get here, once i get here I'm okay," she said.

"We love it, can't wait to get here, we just enjoy it, we play all gospel music, people love it," Howard said.

Aside from playing the piano, Joanita and Howard Woolf have also fostered 28 kids.
