Okay, so this is admittedly not my most thought-provoking post, but it does have to do with an "Aha!" heritage connection I made today. And I do think it's a mildly entertaining topic.
From people who know me well, to total strangers, I've been told for years now that I look like Barbra Streisand. I even have two friends, from totally unrelated phases in my life, who've both nick-named me "Barb". It happened to me again today. One of my neighbors who I've only waved to in passing, stopped me today and told me that every time he sees me, he thinks, "She looks just like Barbra Streisand!"
So my "Aha!" moment occurred when I started thinking about where this look might have come from that so many people have observed over the years. Take a look back at this picture of my Great Granna and I think the mystery is solved!
(No relation to Barbra as far as I know.) But I guess the apple didn't fall far from the tree, I just never noticed it until today.
So, who do you look like?
