Playdough Face

My Mom and TGOO attended a wedding about a year ago and the pictures just came back to the bride and groom. Evidently everyone has been wondering who the dapper guy in the blue seer sucker suit was… the man with the neatly trimmed gray beard.

And evidently there was talk about his being a Sean Connery look alike.

Heh. We are laughing.

Someone has always thought he looked like a movie star. And these stars… they change. When I list them out, you will find that nobody agrees. He is Playdough Face.

When they first got married, my Mom had a friend who swore he looked like Paul Newman. (He has blue eyes.)

A woman in our neighborhood when I was a teenager thought he looked like Robert Redford.

When in the Navy, he had to board a Taiwanese ship. This was the late 70s. From what I understand, there was commotion when he boarded. Half the crew thought he looked like Robert Redford, the other half Paul Newman.

About 20 years ago, before TGOO grew his beard, I thought he looked like Johnny Carson as did others. I think it was the smile.

My Mom thought he looked like Ed Harris.

Everyone focuses on the smile or the eyes. Now they focus on the beard.

TGOO says all men with a well groomed beard look alike.

I don’t think so.

So here’s a picture of TGOO as a Midshipman. Amazing how all these movie stars came out of that one face….

Does look reminiscent of a Johnny Carson even in this photo and I think it is the smile, dapper haircut, and ears...

Hubba, ya better keep an eye on the neighbor gals....

I am seeing where they get the Sean Connery reference from, he does look a little like Sean in the early years.

All "older" mean with white beards remind me of Kenny Rogers.

.. Carson, definitely... but hey, anything is better than Opie Taylor (which is what I get)....

Yep, Carson, early years.
