I’ve been sharing my adventures and misadventures here on the Wild Ride for eight years. On my new adventure, The Wild Side with Susie Lindau podcast, I interview guests about their Wild Side and ask their definition of Wild.
I am so excited for you to meet my next guest on the podcast. Jim Cram not only lived to be 102, his wonderful insights about his life and longevity will enlighten and inspire you.
Jim defied many of the elderly stereotypes. I first met him walking with his daughter, Jo Ann Joselyn, at a CU Football game. I couldn’t believe he was ninety-eight years old! His energy was infectious. At the time, I asked him if I could interview him for my blog. When I came up with the idea for a podcast, he was on the top of my list. I feel blessed that I got the chance to sit down and talk with him. I want to send out a special thank you to Jo Ann, who coordinated this amazing interview.
I was blown away by his charm and gift of storytelling. Where many of us wander when regaling others, speaking for myself here, Jim stayed on topic without notes or hesitation. He was one hundred and one at the time of the interview. He shares several Wild events which shaped his life.
A lot of what we are being told about living a long life didn’t apply in Jim’s case. I love that. Anyone who has been following me for a while knows I’ve been through a lot. After interviewing Jim, there’s no reason why I can’t live to be 102. You could live to be that age too.
Jim passed away in December at one hundred and two years old. He had a fantastic quality of life!
Tune in next week, Thursday, April 18, when the interview goes live!
