A Weird Connection – Maybe

In a day when everyone is taking pictures of everything and google delivers boatloads of images with the touch of a finger, it was surprisingly difficult for me to find a picture of Paul McCartney and my grandmother together. And by that, I mean – impossible.

I am a huge fan of Paul McCartney. I am a huge fan of my deceased grandmother. About ten years ago, I realized that every time I’d see a picture of Paul, I thought of Grandmom Manning. Weird. She was not a fan. She opted to watch Hee Haw when he was rising to fame.

She was an amazing woman who lost her eyesight when I was a teenager. I barely remember her being able to see, but I do remember her kind, gentle manner. When she was a young, she taught ballroom dancing. I am told she was quite a cook and a more than proficient seamstress. Probably her biggest achievement was raising my dad and his siblings. Born in 1900, she always said she was as old as the years.

So where is the connection? I think Paul looks like my grandmother. Seriously, maybe we’re related! Here are some pictures. Do you see a resemblance? My dad’s family is huge, so, you never know! Maybe that’s why Paul has always been my favorite Beetle/distant cousin.

    ok – at first I as going to tell you here’s no way they look alike but upon further examination, by golly they DO look alike. We don’t have any McCartneys our family that I am aware of but hey, you never know.

  2. Wow! You should have your DNA done and then ask Paul McCartney if he’d like to do his! =)
