Speaking as a twin, whose mother delighted in dressing her  
(fraternal twin) daughters alike until I finally started making all  
my own clothes at about age 13, I cannot love that link.  :-O

Well, it's not as if they are wearing exactly the same attire in a male and  
a female version, but, although the style isn't too bad, I'd rather not go  
for that 'matched' look as a couple. Begins with me and DH looking good in  
entirely different colours, and ends with 'Hell, no, I'm a person of my  
own!'. Can understand you very well, Beverly, although I wonder how it would  
be to have another me that isn't me, if you know what I mean. Are twins  
really as close as they always say? <wanders off in thought, sneezing and  
coughing hard>

I do understand the question, but keep in mind, my sister and I are  
fraternal twins, so it's not at all like seeing another "me" when I  
look at her.  We are sisters, who just coincidentlay happened to be  
born on the same day.  ;-D  However, that never stopped my mother...

I suspect Barbara and I are maybe a little closer than two sisters  
born several years apart, mostly because we were always in the same  
stage of growth/development.  We were in the same classrooms in  
school until they finally had enough kids to have two separate rooms  
of eighth grade kids.  Teachers often accused of cheating somehow,  
because we scored the same on tests, but that was silly, we STUDIED  
together!  :-D  Mom threw a hissy fit when they decided to place us  
with the two different teachers at age 12, she won.  As usual.   In  
high school we pretty much developed our own set of friends and  
interests, although we still are very close. We live about a mile  
from each other.

Hope you are feeling better.  It's allergy season here, so I'm doing  
some sneezing as well.

That reminds me a little of the Mother Gothel in Disney's 'Tangled':  
'Motheeeer knows best!' (

Sheesh, I really wonder why she was so bent on having you two together...  
Mind you, your sister looks so incredibly frail on you FB pic, while you  
seem have gotten all the vigour. Has she always been like that or has it  
only come in her elder years with all her ailments?

Hmmph, I thought DH and I were through but obviously he has begun sneezing  
again, and I did, a little, too. So we're not sure if it's any kind of  
allergy or a second go from the flu. Anyway, we will stay away from DSIL,  
although she is much better. She's getting ready for her next turn of  
chemo... This time much more lightly dosed, they promised. We really thougth  
it would kill her; she looked like she'd pop her clogs and if the docs  
wouldn't have said it was - uh, normal, we'd have - I don't know what.

So, have a great weekend; here, it seems that spring is giving a preview for  
the next few days. I have no objections. ;-)
