Alan Shepard: My first look-a-like in space
Just received a letter (yes a real letter) in the mail that had a paragraph that read as follows:
I was looking at my Alan Sheppard stamps and realized there is an incredible resemblance there to you.
No… I thought. My correspondance and I have not exactly spent a lot of time in each other’s company, so he must be mistaken.
Bam! There it was… sure enough.
I gave it to Wife to check out and without hesitation… “Is that you?”
Upon MUCH further observation I think the ears, cheeks and chin are a little different. But the nose, eyes and forehead are pretty spot on. I’m impressed.
Time for a Google Image Search!
Ok, so most of the time we don’t look much alike at all… but that stamp is a WINNER!
I did find a digital copy of the stamp, though, which I promptly saved off onto my computer. Pretty cool.
Ok, yeah yeah… my cut and paste skillz are a bit lacking…
