George Bush Senior celebrates 85th b’day with skydive!June 13th, 2009 - 12:26 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, June 13 (ANI): Former US President George H.W. Bush took a 3200-meter high leap into the sky to celebrate his 85th birthday - and swore to repeat the jump when he turns 90.
The fun-loving former leader dived into the sky with a tandem parachute while his wife Barbara, son and former president George W. and another son, former Florida governor Jeb Bush watched over in Kennebunkport, Maine.
“It still feels good. You still get a charge out of it,” News.com.au quoted him as telling CNN television.
Bush further encouraged fellow senior citizens to go out and take a sky bite, adding: “You can go out and get something done.
“Just because you’re old, that doesn’t mean you can’t do fun stuff. And you don’t want to sit around drooling in the corner. It’s a wonderful release.”
Bush famously skydived on his 75th and 80th birthdays and hopes to repeat it on his 90th birthday as well. (ANI)
