For his 80th birthday today, former President Bush made, I believe, his sixth jump. This was to be his first solo jump, but weather conditions put a stop to that. Maybe next time. After landing, Mr. Bush said
"For me, I like speed. I like the thrill of it. But the jump also sets an example for older people, here and abroad, that just because you're 80 years old, it doesn't mean you're out of it."
Good for him. Show 'em you're not ready for the walker and Geritol just yet. Why the title some may be saying. Because there is no way in hell you would ever get me jump from a plane. I'm scared to death of heights and speed. And jumping from some 10,000 feet and falling at over 100 MPH isn't something that's on my "to do" list.
