He’s Still Going!
Can you imagine: selling everything you have, and then turning right around and running across the country? Why would someone do that?
Have you seen the video? 90-year-old Dick Van Dyke and his acapella barber shop quartet The Vantastix were wrapping up breakfast at Denny's with a rendition of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Proving that at 90, he's still got what it takes. He still dances and he still sings.
He was on Conan back in December rockin' that fine-four-fendered-friend, proving that even at 90, and not as tall as either Conan or his co-singers, he still stands head and shoulders tall as a leh-gend!
He's not the only nonagenarian that's still got it, though. Ernie Andrus is a 93-year-old World War Two vet. Three years ago his wife passed away and he sold everything he owned. Then, he started running across the country. To raise money. He started in October of 2013, running ten to twenty miles a day. This passed Saturday, he made it to St. Simon Georgia.
Why is he running to raise money? He wants to send the ship he served on in the Navy during World War Two to Normandy for the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, in 2019!
I wonder if he hums, whistles or sings along the way...
