Lately Andrew has been delving into the history of his ancestors. Then the new issue of National Geographic arrived, and I couldn't help but notice a similarity between his appearance and that of the Neanderthal pictured on the cover. Who knew the Ward family went back so far?
This does explain a lot: his love of fishing, being outside in nature, his unusually large lung capacity, and what some might describe as (and I quote from the article) "a fundamentally archaic lifestyle."
Strangely, this is not even the first time a cover of National Geographic has resembled a member of our family. I'm a little worried about what they'll come up with next.
