Get this: On local news, 90 yr old woman skydives to show up Poppy AND
she landed on her feet. Her statement in the interview: "I figure it takes a DEMOCRAT to land upright!" My jaw just dropped when I heard that, what a woman! WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOO! :bounce:

7. Local is Minnesota.
It's the local CBS affiliate out of the Twin Cities (St. Paul/Minneapolis).

Lots of video, but no 90 year old skydivers.

13. Well, the 10 o'clock news may not be up yet. It WAS WCCO.
If you're up for the early morning news show 5-7 am, they may repeat it. They often repeat some of the "human interest" stories from the night before on the morning show.

Hope you can catch it!

6. Wasn't that just the COOLEST!
I wasn't exactly paying attention at the start of the story -- reading DU with TV on in the background. But when I heard her say that about being a Democrat I just whooped!

I'm still just tickled as all getout! :7

8. I just saw it on my local news a few minutes ago, but I don't think
it's a local story here...which means it's probably getting play throughout the country. Yeah!

10. I'm in Boston.
I don't think it was a CBS affiliate; I switched stations a few times while watching the news so I'm not certain, but I don't think it was the CBS affiliate.

14. Wow! That's pretty far out!
I wish I had been paying more attention at the beginning of the story, I really only perked up when I heard what she said about being a Democrat. But my impression was that she was a local woman, her family was talking about her shovelling the snow off her own roof among other things... :wow:
