I had the weirdest thing happen about a week after my Dad died.
I was washing my face one morning and suddenly saw my Dad in me,up to that point I'd never seen any resemblence to him,now I occasionally see him looking back at me in the mirror.

It's when I see my reflection unexpectedly, in a shop or somewhere like that, that I realise how old I'm looking!

I look like my maternal grandmother. I never met her, as she died before I was born, but I have some pictures of her, and agree that the resemblence is strong. Our colouring is different; she had blonde hair and fairer skin than mine.

The girl on the till in the foodstore looked very like Greta Thunberg, but I think one must be 18 years old at least to sell ciggies and alcohol
Saw a familiar-looking curmudgeonly gent too, then I realised I was looking at myself in the mirror :wink:

Apparently I resemble Mark Brandon Read, hence my nickname of "Chopper".

Apparently I used to look like John Major but I understand that he has improved with age.

Many years ago I was told I looked like Cliff Richard (I'm 20 something years younger than him), but now I have grey hair and wrinkles, he doesn't.

You may be his Dorian portrait!

Myself, I am looking less and less like Count Dracula on a good night out and more and more like Queen Victoria in her moribund phase following the departure of John Brown. However, when the ladywife notices she will feed me her Special Cake and I will once more be transformed into Victor Mature, complete with banjo eyes and a leer.

Edi Rama, the PM of Albania, bears an uncanny resemblance to me (short greying hair + beard, smiles a lot &c)
Just read about him in the Grauniad
He was voted 8th best-looking out of 199 world leaders
What does that make me?
