A 90-year-old Missouri woman is proving it's never too late to try something new and daring.

Rosebud Gard says she's always wanted to try skydiving. She's been crossing things off her bucket list for the past 20 years.

And, at 90 years old, she finally got to the end of her list. On Saturday, she jumped out of an airplane as family and friends watched from the ground.

"I wanted to go on a hot air balloon; I got to do that on my 70th birthday," Gard said. "I wanted to go on a cruise, that was my second thing. I wanted to parasail and I did that in '95. I'm really rather excited, I'm not scared a bit."

Gard says just because she's done with her bucket list, doesn't mean she'll stop looking for adventure.
