What Will YOU Do For YOUR 90th Birthday?
Maybe you’re not quite there yet. But think about it – what do you get for grandpa, or your mom, or anyone, as a 90th birthday present.
If someone suggested a skydive, you’d laugh. And say, “Ooh, no, that would be wrong.” Well then, you couldn’t be part of the Bush clan, then could you?
Because that’s exactly what George Herbert Walker Bush – a.k.a. Bush One, a.k.a. Bush Senior, a.k.a. the 41st president of the United States – did for his 90th birthday. He strapped himself onto a retired Army Golden Knight – because the jump had to be done in tandem – and jumped out of a helicopter.
The parachute was, of course, red, white and blue. Family friends say the ex-prez – an adrenaline junkie, according to some – was exhilarated by it all.
And by the way, the CNN video didn’t turn off the audio because he was screaming all the way down. That’s just not true.
