Andrea was built, gorgeous, and a great guitarist. Mama was huge (although still beautiful), and the best cook I ever met. I haven't seen Andrea since high school, but I've always been curious how that turned out.

DW's daughter, in her mid thirties is beginning to look like DW, which seems OK with her (the daughter), what pi$$es her off is that she now is starting do things and developed taste in decor like that of her mother.

Of course when she was young the daughter swore that she will never do anything like her mom.

When I was working, I got this reaction a lot! I must have been a popular version when I was produced back when mammoths roamed the earth! Once I was getting on a plane when the flight attendant asked me, "Oh, you're back already?" I asked her about it, and she swore that a woman looking exactly like me had just taken the flight into my airport that morning.

I actually sought out one of these "doubles" and didn't see the resemblance at all.

My brother, on the other hand, is an exact double of the golfer Nick Faldo, same height, same walk, mannerisms, everything except the accent. He's been surrounded at the airport by fans begging him for his autograph...and for golf tips. That's the funny doesn't golf!

I have been told many times, by total strangers, that I look like Robert Dinero. Probably hear it out of the blue about a dozen times a year. I just don't see it myself but there must be something to it. I will gladly take a small part of his fortune however... ;-)

When I was in high school, living in a very small city outside KC, I had a next-door neighbor, same age, with the same first name, middle initial, and last name- he was killed a couple of years out of high school in a car wreck when I was away at college- It was a gruesome crash that was widely reported in the local and state news, of course mentioning the name and city of residence. I came back for the funeral, and it was surreal- many of the greater KC residents in the crowd showed up thinking it was me. They were shocked to see me there, to say the least. My folks received phone calls and cards for a couple of weeks. It was a really strange experience.

maybe I'll go to Wilford Brimley's funeral...
