PLYMOUTH â€”Â For his 84th birthday, a man who claims his name is â€śHandsome Harryâ€ť decided to celebrate in an unusual way. He wanted to skydive.
â€śItâ€™s something Iâ€™ve always wanted to do, ever since my son did it,â€ť said Beechler. He and his wife, Dolores, went in a hot air balloon when they were first married and that was enough for Dolores.
â€śI would never do this,â€ť she said. â€śBut it was no shock when he told me he wanted to skydive. Heâ€™s very adventurous.â€ť
