Dick Van Dyke is still finding new ways to impress at 97.
The veteran actor shared a video of himself enjoying his first ukulele lesson on Instagram, practicing with a friend and listening to an instructor.
“My first ukulele lesson with @getstartedplayingukulele,” he wrote in the caption. He also tagged his wife, Arlene Silver, saying it was her third lesson so far.
“It’s never too late to start something new,” he added.

Van Dyke continues to be an energetic and enthusiastic personality. Earlier this year, he wowed audiences by appearing on “The Masked Singer,” and is set to star in an upcoming movie titled “Capture the Flag,” about a group of vets competing for the privilege of raising the flag in their neighborhood each morning.

He also credits his wife Silver, who is 46 years his junior, with helping to keep him spry.
“Having a beautiful young wife half my age to take care of me – that works,” he joked about his longevity.
In March, the “Bye Bye Birdie” star had fans worried after he was involved in a car accident and sustained moderate injuries.

But even that didn’t slow him down. Cameras caught him at an office with Silver, and he cracked jokes about the accident.
“I have two stitches here,” he said showing the stitches on his lower lip. “Other than that, just made me a little dumber, I guess.”
“I’m 97. All my friends are dead,” he added. “I’m still having fun.”
