Cutest Old People of the InternetMarch 4, 2012
Being grandparent-less, I like to get my old people fix where I can: Helping them cross the street, watching them take out their teeth to play shuffleboard… I once even took a cruise with my Mum and even with our cumulative ages we were the youngest “person” there – IT WAS THE GREATEST 12 DAYS OF MY LIFE.
When not in the immediate company of wrinkled living history, You Tube pays a glorious homage to them. Counting the best down from 10!

When Fred says, “It’s pretty hard to be blind,” we don’t know whether he’s referring to his eyesight or love at first sight. Both are adorable.
