86-Yr-Old Melts Hearts With Adorable Posts About Idyllic Life With Wife of 65 Years.

Neither Lauren Skell nor the elderly gentleman she recently brought to fame could have anticipated the public’s reaction to a May 29 observation she made on Twitter. But her 17 words have since been retweeted tens of thousands of times, received nearly 200,000 likes and gained the 86-year-old man almost 20,000 followers. People just can’t get enough of this adorable British couple!


“This old man I know always posts instas of his wife and they’re so sweet bless him,”she wrote.

My Modern Met

The photos that accompany that Tweet exemplify the life of one Geoffrey Walker, an 86-year-old author and musician who documents what appears to be an enviously idyllic life in the scenic English Midlands.


The bucolic setting is filled with beautiful homes and lush countrysides and landscapes, which he enjoys while running marathons and other hobbies.

But as the stately English gentleman makes perfectly clear, the most important part of his charmed existence lies in his lifelong love for his beloved Pauline, his “wife and sweetheart for the last 65 years.â€
