Dead-ringers

Just to (edit inserted: try to) lighten the general mood of chit-chat these days; my wife's hairdresser employs a Saturday girl, an about 16 year old, probably still at school, shes an almost perfect look-a-like for a young Bridgette Bardot when she was in her "And God Created Woman" era or just before.
I mentioned this to her this morning and, she looked blank and said "Er! who...is that good or bad?" I replied that it was definitely an advantage as she will probably discover as she gets older, not that she seems unaware of her attractiveness however!! other ladies in the shop agreed with me.
Do you know anybody who resembles somebody from the past? or indeed do you, or have you been told you look like......
In my late 40/50's I was often told I could pass for George Peppard in his A Team time of life (same colour hair as well ((except mines natural))
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

The pic on the left. (todays version of BB) reminds me of  " a certain disgustingly loud and foul mouthed female person" pretending, and getting away with it, to be a "comedienne"... a definite slur on the true troopers of this profession.
