i really do hate cleaning but i find the neatest things  
One of them being my photo album and it has a picture of my great-grandma. I scanned it tonight and figured I'd post it just for the heck of it. My dad thought I looked a bit like her. (of course he also said I looked like Rita Heyworth *shakes head 'no'*)

Dad used to tell us that every Sunday they'd all go over to her house and everyone would cook a big meal and she always made sure that dad had beans and cornbread because those were his favorites. Then afterward Ma (dad's mom) would help great-grandma wash her hair -because the length was past her feet and they had to do it in a rain-barrel out in the back of the house. I have no clue how old she is here but I know that when she died, she was like 98 and my dad was 9 or 10 at the time.

(I was 22 in this photo. it was done in one of those mall photo booths and enlarged.)

edited to add an old photo of me for comparison.

*giggle* You posted just as I was editing the post.

I don't think I could have handled that much hair. When I let mine grow out I get headaches too badly because I have to keep it up in a ponytail or suffer heat rashes along my hairline. By the way, not having helmut-y hair is a good thing. ;)

I still don't see the Heyworth resemblance, except maybe for the lines around the mouth.

And thank you. *smooch*

I think it is lovely that you look like your great-grandma. It shows the family connection through time and I think that is a wonderful thought.
I also look a lot like my great-grandma. Unfortunately, I also got the weight :(

Now THAT is some family resemblance through the ages! :D Just gorgeous! I bet you are the same age in those pictures, too. Isn't it reassuring to know that you would have looked cute 100 years ago, too, with those pillowy hairstyles and poofy dresses?

I love the expression on her face, especially. Sort of sceptically amused, it seems. *g*

Thank you for sharing!!

The family likeness is SO apparent there. And you both look a bit cheeky and mischievous - there's a definite twinkle in both your eyes! I love looking at old family photos; it's amazing what features you can see being passed on.

Mel :)

Your grandma has gorgeous hair! And there's a definite resemblance. I think you may have better cheekbones, though.

Great pics!

Oh yeah, you look like her. You've got eyes that are just a touch prettier, though.

From the nose up, yes, you do look like her!
