I never forget a face.....Really!

Even with my short term memory failing me when I least expect it, one gift that I have not lost is that I never forget a face. Even if I have not seen the person in many years.
It has been fun working the new job as everyone comes in to buy from a hardware store. I have changed much over the years. Long hair to shaved. Big beard, short beard, no beard, moustache, to what ever it is I have now. Reddish brown hair and beard to white beard, shaved head....etc.......
I have seen some people that I haven't seen in twenty years and they are surprised when I ask them a question that only an insider would know. When they ask me who I am it is fun to see their reaction and surprise.
But imagine my surprise when I thought Punk Rock Mommy or perhaps Gem ll (or ll) came walking into the store. http://www.punkrockmommy.blogspot.com/

It couldn't be of course. They say that everyone has a twin or look-a-like out in the world. But what if you are already a twin? She has since come in several more times. She is an artist (watercolors) and shows in Concord, MA.
Ah, the interesting world of retail!
