Let's hear it for genetics

I was digging through old photos this weekend because Ricky wanted to post a collection of Buster photos (which you can find at the bottom of his blog entry here).

I stumbled across my grandmother's high school yearbook from 1917. When my grandmother was alive, it would never have occurred to me to think I looked even remotely like her. Then we saw this picture of her:

I remember finding this among Grandma's possessions while I was with my dad, stepmother and uncle, and everybody just gaped. It is pretty freaky. Maybe I need to write one of those time traveling stories about going back and posing as my own grandmother.

Then I will of course submit it to nihilistic_kid because I know he's never seen a story like that before!
