My (tall) clone – #tbt

11 Dec

(in case you’re not sure what #tbt means, it means “throw back thursday”, where you post something from the past…carry on with your new knowledge…)

I posted a pic of my brothers and me, all Christmas 1975-ish, wee children that we were, and there was a slew of “OMG, Maura is your clone!” comments.

I never really got why people thought she looked SO much like me, until for my birthday, my mom sent me this photo…


…and I stood there, looking at the photo (which is a little fuzzy) wondering when my mom took a photo of Maura…in a tent…wait, we didn’t have a tent like that…and why is Maura wearing a Vassar shirt…wait, I had that shirt as a kid…wait, that is ME!

But you can see why I was thrown by this photo.


Yes, there is no denying that Maura is my child. But I never saw the striking resemblance until I mistook a photo of myself for Maura, lol!  Now, there will be no denying that anymore!

        Mater semper certus, pater semper incertus est
        The mother is always certain, the father is always uncertain – old Latin wisdom.
        Of course in the days of DNA-Analysis that wisdom is not true anymore.
