We often treat our grandmas and grandpas tolerably. Grandparents will be grandparents: they think Facebook is a kind of notebook. But we're just helpless nestlings in comparison to them. Their life was harder, but they had fun anyway. And they didn't care about Facebook.
Today Bright Side shares some pics of our young grandparents hanging out.
