Not everyone is lucky enough to be a dead ringer for a really attractive celebrity. I, myself, am occasionally compared to Jack Black, or worse, to Mickey Dolenz, but at least I'm man enough to admit it. Two of my great grandparents (mother of the bride and father of the groom) are remarkably like two actors who graced the large and small screens in the 1960s. See if you can figure out who the dopplegangers might be for my great grandmother Alice Schoonmaker Livingston and great grandfather Charles Henry Abbott.
Yes indeed, they resemble no one so much as Mary Poppins (at least attired similarly to Julie Andrews) and the first television portrayer of Gomez Addams, John Astin. But why not be the judge yourselves? As always, click to enlarge.
Meanwhile, there is still time to avail yourselves of the opportunity to find good hearted humor at my ancestors' expense by weighing in in the 4th, and possibly last Walking the Berkshires Family Archive Caption Contest. The estimable Bill West seems set to walk away with the winner's laurels once again, but this time uncontested, and I know there are witticisms just waited to burst forth into the limelight to give him a run for his money.
I await your brilliant contributions here. And that means you, Charlottesvillain and Tigerhawk. Don't let the family side down!
