They lived happily ever after
Charlotte and John Henderson of Austin, TX were married in 1939 and will celebrate their 80th anniversary in December. But that’s not the reason they made it into the Guinness Book of World Records. The Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC] says it is because they are officially the oldest known married couple. He’s 106 years old and she’s 105. And they said it wouldn’t last.
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?
A throne fit for a king
There’s a solid gold toilet on display in the UK, but a Hong Kong jewelry company recently unveiled its own gold toilet festooned with 40,815 diamonds embedded in its seat, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. It’s a must-see attraction at Shanghai’s International Import Expo and, as you might expect, it is soon to be listed in the Guinness Book of World Records.
It’s like herding cats
One cool cat at a shelter in Houston, TX is giving caretakers there a run for their money, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Quilty, a seven-year-old feline, has developed a knack for opening the doors to the free-roaming common rooms, giving Quilty and his cat-mates access to the lobby. That, in turn, keeps the staff at the Friends For Life Animal Rescue and Adoption Organization busy rounding them up. Herding cats, as we know, can be a truly difficult task so the shelter is now using broom sticks to prevent future escapes.
