Wow! Despite the fact that he can no
longer walk on his own (he relies on a stroller and wheelchair), 88 year old George Bush intends jumping out of a plane on his 90th birthday!
Remember the Former American president, George H.W. Bush *winks* sure you do! The 41st American president turned 88 on Tuesday, and he simply celebrated it in an emotional tribute.
George H.W. Bush shed
tears during an interview, broadcast on the NBC morning show with his grand daughter Jenna Bush.
The tears came when Bush 41 shared a letter he had written to his family

to watch grow. If you need me, I’m here. Devotedly, Dad.
“I’m trying not to cry,” Jenna Bush said in the “Today”
studio after watching the taped interview. “The good news is my
grandfather says he’s not done skydiving. Yes, his next goal is jumping out of a
plane on his 90th.”
The one-term president who said it was a “terrible, awful feeling to
lose to Bill Clinton in the 1992 presidential election…I really wanted to win and worked hard” went skydiving to mark his 85th birthday in
I can’t wait for him to clock 90…I intend covering the ‘jump-out-of -the-plane’ thingy, trust me *winks*
