In the countdown to my trip to England, I will land there 6 weeks from today!
One of the things I decided to do was have copies made for Rob of some of the old family photos I have--and while I was doing it for him, I made extra copies for other family members.
They were ready today and after picking them up I gave Brenda her set of 32, 8 x 10 photos. As we sat at the kitchen table looking at them together, I realized that I will have to number them and make a chart to go with them, explaining who it is that is on each of the photos as Brenda did not of course recognize the faces, some of them in photos taken 90 or more years ago.
But there was one that she picked up and said, "Mom, who is this?" as she stared at it,"Those are my cheekbones, and my jawline."
It was a photo of her great grandmother; my father's mother, Lucy Cater; taken in about 1920, that she was looking at. I had never noticed the striking resemblance before. Brenda is beautiful, but I always wondered where she got her features from. Looking at the face before us in the photo, we both had the strangest feeling. It was Brenda's face!
