Would you know the best thing to do if your lovely cat did not get into the frame of a photo? I’d bet not. A lady’s mother in law photoshopped one of her cats into a picture with her other cat. What a touching and emotional image this made.
19. Free advice
You probably have heard that saying "advice is a dime a dozen." Well, this saying accurately applies to the old coot. They are always eager to bless you with advice. Though it may be wrong, it is most definitely free. You might want to get that piece of information.

17. Once they dislike you, you won't hear the last of it
You certainly do not want to get on the wrong side of the older generation. Even their style of expressing dislike is one of a kind. This picture shows what a grandma did to her grandson’s ex who she was not particularly fond of.
16. Cat family
Oldies indeed treat their pet animals in a golden manner. This guy’s father-in-law considers his cat like family. Little wonder the cat went ahead to create and bring a family of its own to be part of the more prominent family.

The love that radiates from the old ones sometimes gets to wild animals as well. Love is a thing that can tame even the fiercest animal. So is the case with this granny who gets visited by a fox every morning,
14. Excellent at accumulating what they love
When the grannies love a thing, they keep on going for it. The younger generation might think this restless of them, but hey, it is what they like right? Look at this picture of an old grandpa’s record collection that took up two whole trucks when he moved into a new apartment.
13. Never too old to explore
That they are oldies does not mean that they stop being "smart pants." Here is a look at a granny who has an art interest but never owned a tab to explore her art love. Her grandson gets her one, and the first thing she does is to design her face on the gadget.

The elderly ones never want to see a cute thing suffer. Their emotions simply won’t let them. This grandma went ahead to buy a defective pig because she felt sorry for it.
11. They are innovative as well
The younger generation may consider this silly, but the oldies always find a way around hard stuff no matter how silly it might seem. This old man covered his parts of his TV screen he didn't want to look at with a blanket because he did not know how to simply make it full screen.

The male oldies sure know how to play their game. When this man was young he chose to propose to his wife by presenting her with a jar of buttons. This was meant to show her how badly he needed a wife. Every lady would find it hard saying no to this kind of man.

One would easily agree that the elderly ones think of the most ridiculous ideas. Imagine sending your grandchild a sea grape leaf as a postcard from Florida. Yes, a grandma actually did that.
7. Amazing Agriculturist
The knowledge of the green is not lost on the oldies. A lady’s father in law grafted 12 different mango types on one tree. How cool is that?

That they are old does not mean they are slack when it comes to their responsibilities. This girl loves the movie ‘Inside Out,’ and this naturally makes her grandmother get to work.

A guy’s grandma goes to McDonald’s every day for her morning coffee. It turns out the restaurant created a party for her on her 90th birthday. Her consistency did not go unappreciated.
