A 99 year old Dutch lady, Annie, and 102 year old Edie in St. Louis fulfilled their dreams by getting arrested. (As reported by CNN 3/1/17) Annie wanted to “experience a police cell from within.” She had the time of her life “when she was picked up by police, cuffed and locked up.”
These are two ladies whose “bucket list” aspirations are definitely unique and not what I have in mind for my 100th birthday. In my braver moments I want to ride a zip line or sky dive, but the older I get the less likely either will happen. I have enough aches and pains from just a day of shopping at the grocery store or mall.
The FOX 13 TV Station in Tampa featured the following story. “96 Year Old World War II pilot takes flight again in Florida.” Adventuresome Bob Brocklehurst, gave a thumbs up as he took to the air in a P-51Mustang like the one he flew for the military. During the war he was stationed in Alaska for two terms protecting the Aleutian Islands from the Japanese. After 70 years, he was not content to just co-pilot the plane so he took the controls for a loop and a barrel roll. According to Bob, “I felt right at home.”
