Sisters...

Spent a couple of hours this morning taking photos of my big sister Cathy (not to be confused with my friend Cath...).  We're pretty much opposites - she's blonde (allegedly...), I'm brunette; she's 5'2", I'm 5'9"; she says tomato, I say... no come to think of it I say tomato too - so we do have something in common after all.

Beautiful photos. My sis (twin at that) and I are complete opposites too.

Nice! And patient about having her pic taken too.

I've a brother and I'm told we are very similar. Must be the cynicism :-)

We're glad you liked our Mousebreath interview. Thanks for the nice comments. Our books are on Barnes & Noble now (!!!!!!)

A lovely collection of portraits! I still see a resemblance in the last photo, but not in any of the others! Funny how often siblings will be exactly opposites (BW and his sister sure are). In addition to pronouncing "tomato" the same, do you share the same sense of humor? :-)

Cathy is a supermodel. I love how her whole face lights up when she smiles. Nice photos, Barbara.

Thanks chaps!
Laurie - I think we're totally different in looks... she does have a very good sense of humour but it's probably different to mine. She's also much more of a social butterfly than I am!

I found this self-portrait of yours (the only one I could find where you're not hiding behind something, lol) and now I ask you to compare it to Photo #2 of Cathy and tell me you can't see a resemblance in your eyes and nose. Hair color, lips, face shape, height and everything else except your pronunciation of "tomato" I'll grant you. :-)

Is it just the two of you, or do you have any other siblings? I'm sure you've told me before, but my brain seems to have misplaced the information!

God you should be a courtroom lawyer searching for evidence like that :O))) Cathy actually has green eyes and I have blue - ok there MIGHT be a slight resemblance in the shape of the eyes, but the nose? I think she has a cute nose whereas mine is just, er, nose-like! I also think she looks much shiftier than I do :O)))) Her hair is actually as dark as mine (can you believe it?!). Here's the complicated bit - my Dad was married twice before he met my Mum, both of his wives died but he had two sons from those marriages. My Mum was a widow when she met my Dad and had four children including Cathy (the other three were boys). I was the only child from their subsequent marriage. Therefore I have quite a lot of half brothers and one half sister - but like to consider myself an only child as the others are really weird, Cathy's the least weird of them :O)))

You know, I've had people tell me that frequently all my life, but it was generally because I was argumentative and asked a lot of questions. :-)

That's quite the blended family! And goodness, a lot of widowing going on with your parents at what must have been young ages.

So are you saying you have a nose like a nose-like thing? LOL I stand by my earlier statement; your noses and yes, your eye shape (stop quibbling, especially if you're going to insist on taking B&W photos so we can't even see Cathy's eye color!) resemble each other. No further questions, court is adjourned. ;-)
