Kickass and 90 year olds
Kickass, the doorstop dog, joins the keeper as he and all of those in the 90-year-old age group celebrate William Shatner’s 10-minute space ride.
While it is comforting to acknowledge accomplishments by 90-year-olds, the reality of Shatner’s experience costing him a half-million dollars or so, brings some perspective to the matter; and in the keeper’s case might translate to him—the keeper, riding the elevator at the VA hospital up to the 5th floor for an eye check.
That is not a complaint, but simply an observation to make the point that money may decide rocket thrills for the older citizens, but what counts for most of them are no-fee elevator rides to such places as the VA Eye Clinic or the Cardio Lab.
“Don’t beam us up just yet, Scotty: we’ve got places to go and things to see.”
