Good News: Newlyweds, Bus Drivers, and One Very Old Flamingo

Here are a few more Good News stories making the rounds . . .

1.  A couple with a combined age of over 200 just got married in Philadelphia.  Bernie Littman is 100, and Marjorie Fiterman is 102.  They met at their nursing home and they’ve been together about nine years.  (Here’s a photo.)

2.  A 70-year-old flamingo named Gertrude just laid her very first egg.  The director of her nature preserve in England says she’d been “unlucky in love” but recently started shacking up with a flamingo named Gil who’s 33 years younger.

They don’t know if the egg will hatch or not but say it’s been a “fantastic experience” for her either way.  70 is old for a flamingo.  They usually live to around 40.  (Here’s a photo.)

3.  An alert school bus driver in Canada named Terrie Brown is being hailed a hero after avoiding a potential disaster.  He was on the highway when an 18-wheeler hauling rocks drove off an overpass and landed right in front of him.  But he slammed on the brakes and managed to stop with only a FOOT to spare.
