She took up hunting because she was bored. Now she's the best hunter in the village. You won't see that at Bingo Night.

Let me introduce you to my new hero: "A 100-year-old Russian woman who took up hunting because she was bored has been declared the best hunter in her area." Wow, that sure beats quilting and the senior discount at Applebee's.

And and and: The only woman even coming close to beating her is a 90-year-old grandmother. What is going on in the village of Kogalym? This is all very "Mists of Avalon," people. (Maybe they can meet up with the 101-year-old male marathon runner who smokes and drinks. Somebody get Al Roker on the line.)
