Oldest living

I have gotten into the habit of looking at the Wikipedia each morning to see the list of people they consider to be notable. So I get to silently celebrate a lot of birthdays.

I also find myself noting, in particular, who is the oldest notable person still living. And I often then check out their page on Wikipedia, where I usually find an interesting story.

Today that person is Hans Herrmann, the race car driver. If I was looking for an interesting story, I was not disappointed. His exploits and adventures from his racing days make for great reading.

The man is long retired, but still with us at 95. And like everyone in this category, if you really wanted to, you could probably talk to him first hand about his fascinating life.
