Believe it or not, but there have only been two U.S. Presidents in history who have reached the age of 90 years; they are John Adams and Ronald Reagan. There are only four former presidents still alive and many of the other presidents didn’t make it to 90.
But today, we have an exception to that rule.
George H. W. Bush (father to George W. Bush) has hit 90 years and he celebrated that day with another daring helicopter jump (he’s still parachuting at age 90? Readers, what are you doing with your lives?). Hopefully, he’ll live long enough to catch up to Ronald Reagan’s 93 years. Who knows?
