Being mature… does not mean not living!

When former President Bush celebrated his 90th birthday with a parachute jump I wondered how smart that was?  He can not walk but still likes jumping from planes.  Then it occurred to me that being “mature” does not mean “dead”.  Why not take “smart chances”… is it better to say “hey I’m 90 and in a wheel chair… better stop thinking about such things” or “why not!” At the end of the day you admire the man who decided to continue to dream such dreams and make them come true.

  1. We are only as old as we act or think. Maturity can be at any age and many of us never mature. Go for it on the bike of your choosing.

    WX is still super here (IA). Windy though.
