Depth or dis­re­gard?

Central and North Burnett Times - - WELCOME -

HE is 73 years old. And he still boxes.

Arthur ‘Bul­let’ Bradley was back in the ring ear­lier this month, fac­ing an old en­emy, who is three years his ju­nior at 70, in a re­match of their Aus­tralian light­weight ti­tle fight in 1967.

He bounced into our Kin­garoy of­fice this week for an in­ter­view with South Bur­nett sports re­porter, Ai­den Burgess. And boy, did he turn on the charm.

It got me think­ing about how we work hard through­out life, and make the most of our days and ex­pe­ri­ences.

I used to think my grand­par­ents were sprightly for their age but they would be no match for young Bul­let.

I have never met a more dy­namic 70-year-old.

It got me think­ing about how we work hard through­out life and make the most of our days and ex­pe­ri­ences.

It just so hap­pened this all took place in the same week NikWal­lenda be­came the first man to tightrope-walk across the Grand Canyon, with no safety net and no har­ness.

He wore jeans – not an ob­vi­ous choice.

His shoes were hand-made by his mother.

I’ve been sky­div­ing, so I do ap­pre­ci­ate a bit of an adren­a­line rush.

But to me, th­ese two men can’t be com­pared.

The dif­fer­ence be­tween them is that one has lived his life to the fullest, tak­ing on new chal­lenges and suc­ceed­ing.

The other has shown a com­plete dis­re­gard for life as he takes on new chal­lenges and suc­ceeds.
