Zookeeper escaped

God Bless America

True Grit

Ray Woolley is an exemplar for senior citizens, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Woolley, saw action in World War II. It’s nearly 75 years since VE Day but Woolley’s sense of derring do is still intact. The 96-year-old veteran recently broke the record for the oldest scuba diver, diving to a depth of 138 feet off the coast of Cyprus to explore a sunken ship. But, it is not the first time for Woolley. The record he broke is his own, which he established in 2018 when he broke the record he set in 2017. In a documentary focused on his life, he explains it this way: “I refuse to accept the fact that I’m getting old,” according to the Reuters news service.

Driver gives new meaning to the word “impulsive”

You can make book that next time this Welsh driver will call for a tow truck, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. But this time Glyndwr Wyn Richards decided to do it himself when he needed to transport a disabled automobile. He, somehow, managed to rest the inoperable vehicle on the roof of his own car. He was caught before he could get very far. Richards was, of course, fined for reckless endangerment after admitting that it was “a stupid thing to do.” Ya think?  

Ach du Lieber

Next time this German zookeeper will be more careful when trying to herd a determined rhinoceros, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. The rhino recently used its powerful horn to upend the zookeeper’s vehicle and then proceeded to toss it around. The battering virtually demolished the camouflaged car but the zookeeper escaped with minor injuries. It happened at the Serengeti Park in the town of Hodenhagen. The rhino is part of a breeding program.
