Daredevil dares again

Nathan Paulin is, indeed, a “daring young man,” says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. But, instead of flying through the air “with the greatest of ease … on the flying Trapeze,” he prefers tightrope walking for long distances high up in the air. He first made a name for himself when, in 2017, he crossed a 2,198-foot-long rope suspended 230 feet above the River Seine in Paris. This time the adventurous highliner took a breezy 7,218 foot walk nearly 330 feet above Mont Saint Michel in Normandy.

Close call

An unidentified motorist had a close call recently when a herd of deer came at his car on a highway in southern Michigan. One of the agile stags avoided a collision by easily leaping over the vehicle. According to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC], a state police trooper captured the event on his cruiser’s dashboard camera and posted the footage on social media with the warning: “Reminder: If deer cross your path – apply controlled braking; steer straight; don’t swerve.”

The ring was found

Raquel Aiken of Denver, CO lost her diamond engagement ring after finishing a tennis game but didn’t immediately realize the loss. Her dismay was not simply because it was an expensive piece of jewelry; it was because her fiancé gave her the ring shortly before he passed away, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. A local TV station interviewed Raquel and a fellow by the name of Dude Olguin saw the interview.  It turns out that Olguin had found the ring. “My first reaction, you know, temptation — maybe [was to] go pawn it or to find a jeweler to tell me more about it.  But really, my faith told me just to hold onto it and just wait and listen.” When he saw Raquel’s interview, he wasted no time to call her, meet up with her and return her ring.
