BOISE -- A 100-year-old woman from Twin Falls will appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Monday, and she can't wait to meet Jay.

"Well, I'm on cloud nine," said Dorothy Custer. "I just don't believe it."

KTVB caught up with Custer Saturday at the Boise Airport before she caught her flight to California.
    
Custer is no stranger to TV. She spoke with KTVB's Larry Gebert earlier this month at the Western Days Parade in Twin Falls.
    
Custer was named the "Pioneer of the Year" and played her harmonica for Larry. Now, she'll play it for Jay Leno and in front of a national TV audience.
   
She plans to play "In the Good Ole Summertime" and said she'd love to sing for Jay too.

"Oh, I'll have a lot of fun with Jay because I have fun wherever I go," Custer said. "That's the secret to a life, don't you know? To laugh and the world laughs with you." 

Custer said she loves Jay Leno and has been watching him for years.
    
And she can't wait to play her harmonica for him.
    
If you'd like to see Custer's performance, you can tune into the Tonight Show on Channel 7 right after the News at Ten Monday.
