Two Sides Of The Family

This is my father's side of the family. This was taken in Pubnico, Nova Scotia around 1930. My grandfather Carl is on the far right; His dad Charlie is in the center. It's an unfair comparison, because it's black-and-white and the fashions are different.
In contrast, these are cousins on my mother's side. The three women are 53, 51, and 44. No, I am not kidding.
You can guess which side of the family I take after from our Christmas photo. It just kills me.

Well, I do not think your father's side of the family is bad looking at all. It is just that your mother's side of the family is absolutely beautiful.

I take after my father's side of the family as well which is more genetically challenged than my mother's side of the family. What is unfair is that my siblings take after my mother's side of the family. I am the only one showing off my father's gene pool. Ugh!

But then again, I am healthy and everything is working as it should, therefore, I rejoice in this blessing!

I see a resemblance to you and your great grandfather, as if both of you are saying, "humpf."

Man up and be content with your station. Trust me, you wouldn't want to be Assistant Village Bimbo.
