My beautiful Auntie

I was showing a friend of mine my online photo album and he came across this photo and said, "Holy cow! She is beautiful! We know who you look like in your family!"
I told him that this photo is of my beautiful Aunt Mel. I've always thought she is very striking, so this was a major compliment. I know she reads my blog, so I thought she would get a kick out of hearing that someone thought we looked so much alike. (I am the baby hamming it up for the camera, BTW.)

Then I showed him this photo of my parents and he thought I looked a lot like my mom as well. They are sisters after all. It was kind of funny hearing someone refer to my mom as a "Smokin' retro babe" But hey, that's fine by me! He also said my Dad looks like Crispin Glover. People ALWAYS tell me that.
Loves to you Mom and Aunt Mel! Thanks for the great Genes!!

I knew that was you as a baby the minute I saw it--hamming it up, indeed!

Your mom and aunt ARE beautiful, and you look just like them. And I totally thought 'Crispin Glover', right as I was reading 'Crispin Glover'. Always had a weird crush on him--McFly and the Creepy Thin Man! Great photos.

Seriously, every person who has ever seen that photo in my apartment, their first words are: Crispin Glover!
I told him this, he told me that people always tell him he looks like "The guy married to Barbara Streisand" Wha??? I don't get THAT at all.

I think it was the glasses that gave him the McFly look. He hated wearing those glasses as a teenager. He had to for the camera or Grandma would've got after him.

Tell your friend Mom never smoked! You just got the best in the gene pool, & growing up in Alaska helped prevent sun damage! Love you!

I have a photo of me with Unc Rog & a tiny Marcy at Aunt Vic's and a friend of Unc Dave's said "I didn't know Racquel Welch was your sister!" I have to admit, I do resemble her in that photo!

You are SO Racquel Welch. That is actually exactly what I said when I saw this!
