I don’t understand why people don’t like listening to old people’s stories, I’d listen for hours

“12 cigars a day. Don’t inhale, just blow it out. I’m doing it the healthy way.” 😂 this guy is great! Lol.

Dam he died in 2018, he was 112 years old. I would have loved to have met him and just sit there listening to his old stories

This guy has probably seen people be born all the way through their death. Imagine being old enough to witness everyone you love live and die.

I love how he only smiled because he was talking about his cats.

Secret to longevity - 12 cigars a day, four cups of coffee, just as much whiskey, campbells soup and ice cream.
