You never know what you’re going to find under a Robertson’s beard. Willie’s got great dimples. Jase has a baby face and a little bit of smolder. Jep looks a lot like Willie, and Alan . . . well he looks like Alan.
What Phil and Si look like these days behind their bushy facial hair is still a mystery, but we can turn back the clock with the photo above and get a glimpse of beardless Si Robertson hanging out with two of his young nephews: baby Jase (lounging on the stoop) and baby Willie (no doubt shooting that pistol to try to get Jase off his tail and back to work!). Also notice Uncle Si stirring things up by giving Jase a little tickle. Some things . . . a lot of things . . . never change.
And here’s another pic of Si from a little earlier, I think, but about the same time. That clean cut military guy couldn’t possibly have known what a wild man he was bound to become could he? And, hey, where’s the tea?
And just in case you had your doubts about whether or not that’s actually Si, we ran the photo through our Robertsonificationator:
Yup! That’s Si alright!
UPDATE – We found a couple of Si Robertson’s old (old old) high school yearbooks! Click here to see Uncle Si as a fresh-faced freshman and junior, including photos of him in his… football uniform?!?
