Separated at Birth?

So, I spent the day yesterday fighting with my computer (Ghetto Fabulous fix didn't hold out for long) & scanning my grandmother's pictures. I didn't see that side of the family much while I was growing up, so it's been fun looking at the pictures & finding the family resemblances.


My grandfather died when I was 8. He fought a long, hard battle with cancer before that, so most of my memories of him are of him either in the hospital or in the hospital bed set up in my grandparent's living room. He was a farmer & a coal miner. He & my grandmother raised 4 daughters, one of whom had a plethora of health problems, as well as my grandfather's youngest brother, when their mother died in childbirth. My point is, that, although, I don't remember him well, I have great respect for him.



That being said, as I was scanning these old pictures, I kept having a nagging feeling that my grandfather's younger pictures reminded me of someone... and all of a sudden it hit me!

You should totally get a hold of the SNL guy and be like, "I can predict what your grandkids could possibly look like."
