M is for Grandpa Munster

I came out of the bath tub just now and briskly rubbed my newly grey hair with a towel and realized I was a doppelgänger for a famous celebrity.

It could be worse, I suppose. I could look like ... hmmm... wait a minute while I think... Uh, nope, it couldn't be worse.

I wonder if Grandpa Munster looks at himself in the mirror and says, "FECK. I look like that Webster chick."


  1. No one looks their best directly out of the shower :)

    1. "And that's the truth," as Edith Ann used to say.

  2. Sadly I look like the Michelin woman. With a largely grey mop of curls balanced on my head. So yes, it could be worse. At least Grandpa Munster is smiling (do you think it is because he has found out he looks like you?) (Which I don't believe. At all.)

  3. I always thought Grandpa Munster was kinda cute.

  4. Yes, worse would have been looking like Thurman!

  5. BAHAHAHA You crack me up! BTW, I've found myself using 'feck' a lot lately!

  6. I took a good look at my grey hair this morning too. Then said a great big loud, "FECK". Cause I swear I just dyed it a week ago! What's up with that? Ugh.

    PS Grandpa on the Munsters was always my favorite character! (Not that I wanted to look like him or

  7. I loved Granpa (Al Lewis) Munster. His laugh -always- made me laugh, as well :)

  8. You could look like Cousin It from the Adams Family - that's worse!

  9. Nope. You're way too cute to be a doppleganger for that antiquated geezer. Sorry to ruin your self-image, Cathy.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

  10. Lookalikes? Nah, your smile's bigger! ;-p

  11. LOL! I love the word 'doppelganger', and Grandpa Munster is kind of cute. :-D

  12. As long as your eyebrows aren't doing what his do...
    Oh--and hows the ear-hair?
    Time to get a manicure scissors, perhaps.

  13. Lol,that was funny!
    I so dislike the grey:(
    Love the photo of your parents.
    Have fun with the rest of this challenge!

  14. Grandpa Munster was actually a youngish man, in his 30s, when he had this role. That is why he had to wear gloves, as his hands were young hands. Given that fact, well then, you are doing okay, right?

  15. I don't think so, Cathy. But it is quite enjoyable to poke fun at ourselves sometimes.

  16. Ahem! As required by law, I am hereby advising you of a major development in your life.

    You have been nominated for the highly-coveted and internationally-renowned Liebster Award.

    The nomination requires you fulfill a series of prescribed tasks. To wit:

    1. The Liebster is given by bloggers to other bloggers who have less than 200 followers.
    2. Each blogger should post eleven facts about himself or herself.
    3. Each blogger should answer the 11 questions that are asked by the person doing the nominating.
    4. Choose eleven new bloggers to nominate for the Award and link to them in the post.
    5. Create eleven new questions for your nominees.

    7. No tag backs.

    Upon having completed these requirements, you may hasten to my blog Bears Noting, and pick up the aforementioned Liebster Award.

    Or, it you are really busy (like writing poetry or a book, painting with watercolours, looking after a cat, recovering from illness, or moving house), you may skip the aforementioned requirements, and just go get the thing.

    Blessings and Bear hugs; Peace and Joy.

  17. That should read STUNNER ( damm automatic spell check) x

  18. Hello, Cathy. I just did a lot of catch up speed reading and guess what--your house is sold! I am so happy for you, and so happy it's you closing and packing and all those moving things young people do so well. Hoo-ray!
