My family is so cute. [20110916|11:27]

One of my Filipino cousins whom I last saw when he was, I dunno, twelve or something, recently went with his girlfriend to visit my parents. He put the following photo on Facebook, further fueling the theory that my dad is actually living a double life as Morgan Freeman.






In other news, all the postcards have been sent out and should have arrived. I also ordered 20 using one of my sunset photos from Iceland. Assuming they aren't awful, I'll be doing another request poll when those arrive. Yes, I love sending post that much. Archaic, I know.

He can imitate 'The Voice'. He's a very good mimic.

He totally looks like Morgan Freeman! I hope he gets good tables at restaurants because of this!

You know, I never noticed a difference. I will have to pay attention to that next time I see him. What I do notice is when people walk up to him & me and blatantly take photos without asking, presumably because they think he's Morgan Freeman.

Even though I am terrible about it and haven't ever sent you a post (and I feel AWFUL about that) I LOVE to get them from you! :) I am going to try to be better about that.

Don't worry. I expect no replies. I assume that you're busy, and also that you still love me. ;D I get a good deal of happiness out of sending things and imagining you receiving them and going, "YAY! Post that isn't bills or junk!"

Oh yes. It's even more alarming when people walk up to him & me in train stations/airports and take photos of us without asking or commenting.

I did receive a lovely postcard from you (Thank you- a nice surprise). I want a sunset postcard (which means I need to make fine photo postcards of my own and send them out).

Hurrah! I just received the sunset postcards. They aren't quite as sharp as I would have liked but the colours are good so I'll send them out soon. And yes, you should definitely make cards of your images too!

What a cute family! (of course I wish you were in the shot too, but...) ;) And save for the spattering of paint spots Freeman wears, I can certainly see the resemblance...

Meanwhile, I am an awful girl & forgot to thank you or even acknowledge that I received your magnets. *Extreme Failure* So far we haven't been good about sharing--they get moved around my fridge & I'm constantly amused to see where & how the invisible ninjas (pup & tigger) will leave them next. (last I checked they were being chased by ladybugs) Gads. I'm sorry.

Oh, I wish I'd been there too.

Don't worry! I get a kick out of imagining people receiving my silly little letters/postcards and thinking, "Woo! Post that isn't bills or junk, wonder what it is?"

I should totally send him a photo of him that I took and make him sign it with a Sharpie. :D

It's only since his hair went completely white that the resemblance became truly uncanny!
