The photo shows how the man is having a gala time reading a newspaper while lying on the floor. He has even put one foot on top of the other, which goes on to show exactly how much he is enjoying this time.

He also shared a caption along with this photo of his father. And it reads, “Dad is 91 today. In case any fans of his are wondering… yes, he still reads his newspaper lying on the floor like a kid reading a comic.”
