(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 193: I Don't Look Happy Here...

 I am posting photographs from my family collections for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday (you know me, I can't go wordless!).    

Here is a small photograph from the Seaver/Carringer family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period: 

It had been a long day of picture taking, and baby Randy was feeling, well, um, grumpy (perhaps hungry? or constrained by his diaper?  or my knees were cold? or I wanted to eat some grass?).  Maybe she was pinching me?  She certainly was holding me back from something!

This is a picture of my mother, Betty (Carringer) Seaver holding her first-born son (moi) on the front steps of her parents home (2130 Fern Street), probably taken early in 1944.  

I showed this picture at my talk at SOCCGS on Saturday, and a wag noted that I have the same hairline then as I do now.  Ah, genetics!

Enjoyed the post. Your mother was a lovely woman. I like her 1940s hairstyle and dress.
