One Midwestern man isn't letting age slow him down at all.

I've always been a fan of living life to the fullest and so has this guy. Al Blaschke was determined to make retirement fun for himself. And he's definitely succeeded.

Most recently, according to NBC Chicago, the 107-year-old went skydiving, breaking the record for being the oldest person to skydive. He's jumped 3 times now, all since 2017.

He bowls, he sings, and next on his to-do list is to be part of a theatre production.

You Could Own The Greatest House In The State Of Wisconsin

There's a home in Wisconsin that everyone in the state would call the best house on the market. The house is reasonably priced for the amount of money you could get out of it. Why does this house sound like a gold mine? Because it sits and looks directly at the heart of Title Town U.S.A., the legendary Lambeau Field, the home of the Green Bay Packers.
