looking glass

When L was just a tiny baby, people would often tell me how much alike we looked. A baby?! ME? Please.

Since I've been on FB, some college friends have "found" me, and subsequently her page (or whatever it's called) with all her many photos. I was startled to read a comment from two of them that she looks exactly like I did in college (better teeth, I had to add; not a cavity in her head and all that lovely, expensive orthodontics). I really can't see this physical connection. Funny thing, genes. But I don't think I would put the two of us together, really.

a decidedly tired me, carrying L in the hiking backpack, on Mt. Greylock. L now wears that green coat I have on.

Serendipity again -- the big subject at lunch today at work was resemblances between parents and kids!

No inspiration chez moi this evening, but I did carry on...

WV: gurgatio -- some sort of tempo in classical music that I missed out on?

People see -- and don't see -- odd resemblances that may or may not be apparent to the rest of us. I am reminded of one of my mother's colleagues, a grade school teacher, who remarked once to us that right then she could see the resemblance between us that she had never seen before.

Very odd, since I was adopted and had exactly zero blood relationship to my [step]mother. She and I both had a good laugh at that one.

in the flesh I can see a strong resemblance btw the two of you!! it is odd though someone commented today on the mouse that emma looks like me in the photo I posted of her- hardly and if only!! that would be if only I looked like her!!

two posts in one day, does that mean you can take tomorrow off...pacing girl, pacing....

(or scheduling the post to go live on a day of one's choice! how I love that option)

People said I looked like my Grandpa.

Kim and her daughter have the exact same smile. Can't miss it. I will have to compare you and L...

hello tut tut,
This is CocoDog. I have a new blog. My human Mom (aka Aunty) closed her blog. She sent you a tweet a couple days ago.
