Well, okay, maybe not so much. I mean Lizard Breath and The Beautiful Renee have always rather strongly resembled each other. That might be because their dads are identical twins, maybe? But they are four years apart in age and they do have different mothers, although The Beautiful Gay and I are kindred spirits. (I’ll admit that TBG has a much stronger affinity to vacuum cleaners than I do though >wink<)

Still, these gals have a lot of similarities even besides appearance. They are both intelligent, friendly, popular, and gracious young women. Nice to everyone but not to the point of compromising their own carefully developed values. Well, I know this about Lizard Breath because I have known her since before she took her first breath on earth. I am making an educated guess about TBR based on what I know about her family and the glimpses I have had into how she conducts her life.

I had another entry started earlier but I didn’t quite finish it before we decided to head over to Knight’s. And then I thought something like, “Wait a minute!” It is Thursday and the biggest news of the week happened on Tuesday afternoon and I have not blahgged it yet. And that news is that… Drum roll… The young woman on the right in the photoooo and her husband brought their first child into the world Tuesday afternoon. A beautiful daughter named Mae Elizabeth.

And so why did I not post this news before? It’s complicated. Back in the wild wild west of the internet, and I’m talking the 1990s, it seemed okay to post photos of just about anybody out there. Even people who had computers had to run a gauntlet to get to the internet and most people, at least those that I knew, seemed to enjoy seeing pictures of themselves and their kids posted. Nowadays with ubiquitous broad-band internet, mobile devices, and social media, I am reluctant to post photos of people without their permission. New parents have plenty of opportunities to post their own photos of their babies. It isn’t my job (not that it ever was) and actually I’m kind of glad to be out of that “business”. It was fun back in the 1990s but there are getting to be a lot of babies around these days…

So pictures of the beautiful baby Mae were posted on facebook and I decided I would post this 10-year-old photo of the Twinz of Terror and their “identical” daughters, which was taken at Lizard Breath’s high school graduation party.

Anyway, a huge congratulations to The Beautiful Renee and Nick and Mae and all of the grandparents! And good night!

P. S. I LOOOOOVED watching the Patty Duke show back in the 1960s. My parents were not quite so enamored… They seemed to think it would be a bad influence >wink<

    I can definitely see the resemblance between the twins, but not so much between the girls. But being around people, you see more than just a photo can show. Congrats to the new family; babies are exciting to have around. Both in good and bad ways. 😉
