Clone?

One of the upsides to the social media site, Facebook, is the way it reminds of us photos and events we might have otherwise forgotten. This morning the following photo popped up in my Facebook memories:

That’s Studly and me with two of our grandchildren, Garrett and McKayla, from nine years ago. At first glance I thought the woman pictured was my mom. Then it dawned on me, that my mother died before ever meeting any of her great grandchildren.

Here’s a photo of Mom with our daughter, Ashley, who is the mother of the children pictured above. I think maybe Ashley was four in this photo.

Again, here’s the photo of me:

Holy cow. People have told me how much I look like mom, but until now I don’t think I fully realized it. Cloning. It’s real and apparently has been since the 1950’s.

Peace, people. (Miss you Mommy)

      1. It was tough the year I turned 56. Mom didn’t live to see that age. Now I feel like I’m a pioneer, in a way—no one to show me the ropes, so to speak.

  1. You really do resemble her. That must be comforting to you.

    Since it was so cold here yesterday, I put on my dad’s old checkered fedora on a lark. I really can’t pull it off yet, but I probably will be able to in another five years or so. But I looked in the mirror and was shocked to see him!
