Neil Armstrong on EXERCISE
Sunday, April 21, 2013
"I believe that the good lord gave us a finite number of heartbeats and I'm dammed if I am going to use mine running up and down the street." (From the book of quotes, IF IGNORANCE IS BLISS.
Oops, Neil! Perhaps today's youth DO get a bonus spin toward heartbeats for wasting some running up and down the street. And bless your soul, you were our reluctant Ohio hero that died last year from heart problems after you celebrated your 82nd brithday. I read on Wiki that your family requested if you wish to honor you, "next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink." I bet he was thinking "Gee whiz people I was joking!"
That's sweet and I don't do it often enough. I will give all my passed-through-here heros a wink or two next moon.
