And by a prudent flight and cunning save A life which valour could not, from the grave. A better buckler I can soon regain, But who can get another life again? Archilochus

Daughters of Eve

Lyn and Eva Neville were born in September of 1985 on a small farm in Western Kansas. The girls are Parapagus Tripus Dibrachius twins, conjoined at the side and sharing between them three legs, two arms, two hearts, three lungs, and a single liver. Orphaned when their mother died in labor, little is known about their early life until 1996 when they made their first public appearance with Dillard and Fullerton’s Traveling Circus. It was here that the “Evelyn” sisters developed their love of song and performance.

Unsatisfied with the grind of circus life, at the age of nineteen the twins decided to explore a solo career.

Wow! This is really interesting.

The 21st Century "Eng and Chang"?

I've studied quite a bit about the the original Siamese twins. They populated one area of North Carolina.

Serendipity. I'm beginning to believe in it. ;)

No Poe toaster, again.

Always On Watch said...

Yes, I saw that news about the Poe toaster. Must have died, don't you think?

Musta. It's been a three years absence, so they're declaring an end to the tradition.
