There was one thing 103-year-old Dorothy Pollack of Holton, Mich., still hadn't done: get a tattoo. Pollack told The Washington Post that after being in lockdown, "It was time to start living again."

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. One-hundred-and-three-year-old Dorothy Pollock of Holton, Mich., has lived. She's a former bartender and drug store sales clerk, and she worked well into her 90s. But there was one thing Dorothy had not yet done - get a tattoo of a frog. And so she did.

It's MORNING EDITION.
