The Fame

Here is my dad F. hanging out in the gardens at The Biltmore:
Dad's nephrologist is hilarious and awesome, not because I've met him and think he's a riot, but because every time my dad goes to the doctor, he tells him that he looks like a new celebrity. He always says, "F., you've got the [insert celebrity here] look today." Well, Dad has had the George Clooney-look, the Robert Downy, Jr.-look, the Eddie Bauer-look (I don't know if he was referring to the man or store-style), etc. I could kick myself because I can't remember the others. Anyways, you get the picture. Yesterday Dad called me at work to tell me that someone told him he looked like Ben Stein. Bueller. Bueller. Bueller. I want to compare and contrast: which one of these celebs does F. most resemble?
Robert Downey, Jr.
Eddie Bauer (the look)
Ben Stein George Clooney
I'm going to say that in the above-photo, F. most favors the Clooney-look, but I'll let you guys be the judge. See the poll to the left of this post to vote!

Ben Stein, hands-down.

I agree with Jess, just don't tell F. I said so. Personality though... totally unique, no one in Hollywood even comes close.

Rach! It's TR here. I'm reading Donald Miller's new book now also. How cool is that? Your dad wins the Ben Stein look for sure : )

So first off, I agree with the Ben Stein vote. I actually thought that when I saw the pic, before I ever read the blog- isn't that funny?

And I specifically came on here to ask how your pops is doing? Justin said something about a hospital and so I'm checking in- don't know how else to get a hold of you. I don't know if you know this, but your dad is precious- calls us every blue moon or so and leaves a sweet message on our machine- just checkin' in. I love that. Love and prayers- let me know how things are when you get this...?
