Dick Van Dyke is putting the phrase “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” to bed! On Monday, the 97-year-old took to Instagram to show off the new skill he is learning – playing the Ukulele. In a sweet video he tries his hand at the instrument while working out where the chords are, ” My first ukulele lesson” he wrote. After sharing the heartwarming clip he also wrote an inspiring message, telling his fans, “It’s never too late to start something new.” It seems like a motto he lives by too!
